Our solution involved comprehensive analysis, bug fixing, performance optimization, migration to Symfony, and ongoing support and maintenance. By addressing the client’s challenges and goals, we have provided a stable, scalable, and feature-rich platform that empowers the business and ensures a seamless user experience for customers. Additionally, the client gained a technology partner who actively supports and develops the business.
The Client came to us only for support and maintenance of an existing system, as often downtimes and annoying bugs were interfering with the core business. Quickly, the cooperation turned into migration to Symfony 6 and then server management with SLA.
The business goals of the Client:
- Have a bug free and stable platform which is used by over 150 people constantly
- Security patches and support in case there are any urgent issues
- Expand the existing platform with new features
- Being able to work and expand the platform indefinitely (hence migration to Symfony)

About the project flow
Extensive know-how of Client’s system
Development stage & outsourcing
UX & UI optimization
Migration to Symfony
Ongoing maintenance and SLA for infrastructure
The complex van equipment platform underwent extensive business and user analysis provided by our client to better understand it. Bug fixes and performance issues were addressed, leading to migration to AWS for scalability and improved performance. A senior backend developer initially assisted, followed by a focus on UX/UI with a dedicated frontend developer and experts.
Outdated libraries and complex features necessitated the migration to the latest Symfony framework, ensuring uninterrupted service and the ability to develop features in both old and new platforms. The migration to Symfony is complete, and automation processes are being implemented.

The challenges we have overcome
We were faced with the daunting task of taking over a highly complex platform that had been extended by multiple third parties, resulting in outdated and heavily modified libraries and frameworks. The lack of documentation or misleading information made understanding the platform a significant challenge. However, we persevered and managed to optimize the system’s code and server infrastructure without compromising the platform’s stability, even as the traffic continued to grow. Our commitment to a 24/7365 SLA ensured that everything ran smoothly as expected. Furthermore, we successfully executed a migration of the platform with zero downtime, allowing us to update either one or both system versions seamlessly.
