ScaleFocus Case: B-One Web Portal Front-End Development

The Case

BISAM started a market expansion initiative targeting small and medium medium-sized investment and asset management consultancies. Their existing solution was outdated. Moreover, the outcome metrics have become irrelevant to the new target market. Thus, the company had to transform their standalone enterprise software to a web-based solution to address the changing customer needs in terms of simplicity, flexibility, and scalability and to empower a data-driven decision making and transparent investment process. “The main technological challenge was the legacy Java-based back-end landscape. Fortunately, ScaleFocus selected the right tech experts to join our team in the transformation of our performance and attribution management software,”  says Renaud Wilsius, R&D Director at BISAM.

The Solution

ScaleFocus’ team was an integral part of the front-end development of the web portal called B-One. Our team simplified and optimized its features using a variety of front-end technologies like Highcharts, Chai, Mocha, Stylus and more. “Their team adapted quickly to our in-house business and technological specifics. Alongside front-end development ScaleFocus’ team overperformed by delivering an automation testing consultancy.”  says Renaud.

Our team developed an interactive and device-friendly user interface which supports multi-touch gestures and touch-optimized charts. Its advanced responsiveness determines the native user experience on mobile and touch screens. The new user interface of the web portal enhances not only its performance management features but also its forecasting capabilities while achieving scalability and operational efficiency.

“ScaleFocus helped us transform B-One from a standalone enterprise software to a flexible, customizable and adaptable web-based solution. Its scalability is a valuable prerequisite for a seamless migration to the cloud. We successfully expanded to new markets by keeping our focus on core business challenges while entrusting ScaleFocus’ team to take care of technology.

During time ScaleFocus has become our one-stop shop partner for software and technology consultancy services. I believe ScaleFocus is the right IT partner when it comes to facing new technological challenges.”
