SOLUTION

Overview

We took the responsibility of their online application and also managed it.

Initially all their applications were traditionally formatted (design perspective) and were also built with ASP.Net 2.0. We upgraded their system with a V2 version and released it with ASP.Net 3.5. Finally the application was upgraded to MVC 3 version. The changes were reflected across all their products inclusive of the look and feel. All of their products were given a Bootstrap and HTML5 faceoff.

Hot fix of any production issue that cropped up including database changes(related to stored procedures)

Issue related to their web servers – we had a monitoring system through which we kept a constant vigil of their entire system and performed system maintenance from within their environment.
