Brokers’ Service Marketing Group (BSMG) was proactively searching for a partner to assist them in aligning their custom in-house systems with their forecasted growth. They knew they needed scalable enterprise-level systems to meet their changing processes and data needs. Their custom-developed application and other systems were utilizing disparate data sources (mongo, MySQL, MS SQL, access, excel, etc) and they needed to manage and simplify the data integration process.
Acting as an extension of their staff, we focused on improving the user experience and workflows, and integrating disparate data sources into a single coherent framework to provide greater business value. We started with a strategic view of BSMG's IT systems and architecture, talking to staff and various team members. Our goal was to improve the stability and scalability of BSMG’s applications. Within three months Turino had:
- Migrated from AWS to private hosting
- Converted their applications from Linux/PHP/MySQL/Mongo platform to Windows Server/.NET/SQL Server
- Upgraded their SQL Server 2005 data warehouse to the latest Microsoft supported version
BSMG clients are now enjoying a faster, more reliable platform to sell to their customers. In addition, Turino continues to work with BSMG to implement projects to enhance their custom applications and reports. BSMG enjoys having a reliable development team without the permanent cost of full-time employees. In the past few months, they’ve been applying these maintenance cost savings to additional system enhancements including a library of custom reports as well as the ability to create custom reports.
