Project
overview

eTool is a software solution for life-cycle assessment in construction. It’s based on the SaaS model and works for thousands of clients around the globe. Still, in 2017, the team had manual subscription management and insufficient enterprise functionality. We had to automate processes using the Sitecore Experience Platform and Experience Database.

Client

Business
challenge

The client faced a high load related to numerous new subscribers and existing users. There was a pressing need to work with data effectively. eTool wanted to automate its subscription processes to optimize management, improve employee and user experience. In addition, the client decided to boost enterprise features, adding dashboards, profiles, workflows, and billing/payment options.

Technical
challenges

The existing solution for SaaS subscription management was based on CheddarGetter with manual processing. We had to connect the software to CheddarGetter API, automate the process, add new views for management, integrate enterprise and payment solutions. The software was on ASP.NET with a MySQL database. We agreed to use the Sitecore system to add a reliable and robust database with data analysis and registry of contacts.

Solution
delivered

As a result, we upgraded the existing eTool web application. The final solution supports automated subscriptions through CheddarGetter API, new sections for different steps of the customer journey, billing views, and administration workflows. In total, our engineer added 33 enterprise modules and views plus 3 production releases. The Sitecore Experience Database ensures end-to-end integration support with the web system.

feedback

etool

The project ran smoothly. Diceus delivered good work and increased resources in an effort to maintain deadlines. The project itself was adding functionality to an existing web app and Diceus had to quickly become familiar with a very large code base to deliver the work which is commendable. We will consider them for future projects.
