The essence of the project is to develop applications that make it easier for car dealers, garages and insurance companies to quickly estimate costs and manage the repair process. Until the complete migration to the cloud, i.e. the first quarter of 2022, the application will still use the platform of a private provider from Sweden, where part of the production environment is located.
Due to the expansion of the company’s operations to other countries, such as Norway, Germany and Austria, there was a need to move the infrastructure to the cloud to ensure the stability and flexibility of the solution. As the contract with the current infrastructure provider was coming to an end, the client decided to use the Azure cloud and gain the ability to scale applications and process larger amounts of data.
Privacy and data protection is a very important issue to the client. Work on migration to the cloud was suspended for almost a year after Max Schrems, an Austrian data privacy activist, filed a complaint with the Court of Justice of the European Union. It concerned the sharing of EU individuals’ data with US-based companies and concerns about storing the data on their servers. At the time, the client was probing the market to verify customer attitudes toward the subject of using the cloud. For the most part, however, there was no opposition, and the client needed flexible resources due to their expansion.
In connection with moving the application to a cloud-based environment, it was important for the client to:
The platform has a comprehensive database that includes work times, painting times, and complete lists of spare parts with article numbers and prices, as well as three-dimensional models that make it easier for garages to select them.
The system consists of the main application, which is currently being migrated to the cloud, and web applications that support separate functionalities, including:
Using the information contained in the application, the repair shop employees can easily make the necessary repair calculations, as well as obtaining information about spare parts, prices and estimated order completion times. The solution is currently used by over 23,000 users.
The project team includes several .NET developers from JCommerce, who are part of a team developing a system to manage car repair shops. Our developers are tasked with developing migration processes and creating dedicated cloud-based applications in collaboration with the client’s team responsible for managing the cloud environment.
I am impressed by their competence and corporate culture. Qualified and motivated new members joined our project team.COO at Exevator AB
