From a dated Silverlight foundation to a pinnacle of modern web tech: we reinvented an app to redefine responsiveness, amplify data capabilities, and revolutionize the user journey.
In collaboration with Envious Digital, a UK-based digital agency, we accepted the significant challenge of transitioning away from the outdated Microsoft Silverlight platform. Our journey kicked off by creating a new, supportive environment to significantly improve the application's responsiveness on various devices. Delving into the project, we didn't just fine-tune existing features; we introduced new, impactful functionalities as well. A cornerstone of our transformation was enhancing the application's usability to ensure effortless navigation and interaction for users. To complete the revamp, we also elevated the app's visual elements, aligning its aesthetics with its newly enhanced performance.

Custom Web Applications
In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, the primary goal was to transition Faros Engineering Ltd. from their limited and archaic Silverlight-based application to a state-of-the-art web application. This new platform needed not just to be cutting-edge but also versatile across various devices, browsers, and operating systems. Our aim was to provide an all-encompassing solution that would make energy management, monitoring, and reporting a seamless experience for Faros Engineering and their clients.
The original application of Faros Engineering was a product of its time – built with Microsoft Silverlight and exclusively tailored for Internet Explorer. This outdated configuration was becoming a bottleneck. It wasn't merely the lack of responsiveness on newer devices like tablets that was concerning; the app struggled with handling vast datasets and delivering accurate, timely reports. Additionally, the restricted nature of the platform made it challenging to incorporate modern features and integrations. The task at hand was to navigate these technological constraints and transform the application into a beacon of modern design and functionality.
Our initial step was to deeply understand the technical requirements, challenges, and vision of the project. By immersing ourselves in the client's objectives, we set a clear direction for the transformation journey.
Laying out the visual roadmap, we crafted a custom-branded design and interactive prototype. This ensured alignment with the envisioned outcome, offering a tangible representation of the final product for early feedback.
To guarantee a smooth development process, we implemented CI/CD methodologies. This approach fostered efficient iterations, robust testing, and streamlined delivery.
Transitioning from the limitations of Silverlight, we integrated GraphQL and optimized database queries, establishing a foundation for quick, reliable, and scalable data operations.
Prioritizing end-users, we designed modern dashboards and intuitive interfaces. This focus ensured easy navigation, precise data visualization, and a consistent experience across various devices.
We ventured beyond standard functionalities, introducing advanced charting techniques, multi-tabs for organized data access, and session storage to enhance user interaction and convenience.
Iterative development was at the heart of our approach. Regular prototype deliveries and a feedback-driven process ensured the final product met expectations, remained optimized, and fulfilled its envisioned purpose.
Delivered a multi-platform web application for improved accessibility.
