When we were asked to upgrade David McDowall's flagship English language teacher recruitment site (http://www.tefl.com) from a 1990's legacy system to one that would serve for many years into the future we ensured that we were giving him the right tools for the job.
Because TEFL.com was both complex and business critical we spent a long time analysing the existing system and planning the best route to manage the change for customers, suppliers as well as David and his team at head office. The result is a system that will allow David to future proof the technology for his business.
"We consider that Wildfire has provided us with a quality, effective and robust system which should be easily upgradeable in the future."
One of the biggest challenges was migrating the data from the old system and ensuring it was usable moving forward. We worked hard to assure the appropriate safeguards were in place and ensured any unforeseen issues were quickly resolved.
The upgrade was an immediate success for David's business following the launch, a great deal of which David has attributed to our systems: "Since going live over six months ago our customer-base and sales have increased, we feel sure that the new system has contributed to this. Having dealt with Wildfire on a daily basis for some years now, we have always found them responsive, communicative and excellent problem solvers. As one would expect, the team has a first class technical background, they are also able to communicate this well with those of us with a lesser grasp of the engineering of software systems."
