The challenge

After winning this tender, we were tasked to take over a legacy system consisting of a website and web app, redesign and redevelop it, and provide ongoing maintenance for the two solutions. The main challenge was to port the old Support Request data into a newly developed system, ensure all data connections remained intact, and to integrate the new database tool with a API on the Laravel side, and then use a gravity forms submit hook to post to it.

Research Design Service Web Design

The solution

We built a custom Laravel Web Application to manage all Support Requests, which allows the admins to update and track requests, and add associated files and notes.

  • Responsive Web Design and Custom WordPress theme
  • Support requests pushed into a custom Laravel Web App using Gravity Forms and the Laravel API
  • Custom reporting and multilevel user accounts to manage the web app
  • Elasticsearch data indexing to enable better search and facet filtering of support data

Ongoing services include Managed WordPress Web Hosting, Web App and WordPress support, and general improvements.
