Alcoa’s online Work Permit Management System (WPS) was originally developed in WinForms and needed a re-build. Alcoa’s brief was to convert the product to more modern technology that enabled better access across devices, and to be cloud-ready.
HordernIT to converted it from WinForms into an ASP.NET MVC web application. The team utilised cutting-edge technology like SignalR which allows bi-directional communication and content pushed instantly.
The team worked very closely with Alcoa to ensure that the design met the user’s specific requirements.
The old application was successfully replaced with the new application and is running well across multiple devices. HordernIT continue to work with Alcoa to support the product and eventually plan to provide the product as a cloud service in Microsoft Azure.
