We knocked a failing weight loss program into shape
“Softwire have been professional and efficient from day one. They put a great deal of emphasis on code maintainability and extensibility and I would heartily recommend them.”
John Philippou, Head of IT, LighterLife
Take over a complex project which was behind schedule and over budget, and deliver a viable product.
To complete a suite of client management software for LighterLife’s weight loss counsellors.
Initially, Softwire were working only on the server code with existing contractors working on the desktop client. However, LighterLife soon asked us to take over the whole project.
The code was poor and lacked documentation, and the deadline was fixed.
Slim down the code; concentrate on the most important features; sprint to the finish line.
We needed to find a way to deliver a project that was significantly behind schedule, whilst evaluating the key requirements.
We streamlined the code to a manageable size without sacrificing key functionality. This significantly increased the opportunity to add new features.
We delivered a working product on time for LighterLife’s counsellor conference.
The new desktop client dramatically reduced time counsellors spend doing administrative work, freeing them up to help their clients get to where they want to be in life.
