Migrating to a new APS platform for enhanced performance


SynApps was engaged to manage the migration of their existing Alfresco Workdesk system to a full APS implementation, including the development of a custom APS user interface implemented in Angular. As part of the migration, the APS processes have been integrated with several other XPS systems including the central member database, Penscope pensions administration system, payment system, time recording system and reporting system.

SynApps also worked closely with in-house business analysts to design the look and feel of the new user interface. The SynApps Solution Architect translated the platform requirements into an infrastructure design that would be scalable and avoid any of the legacy performance issues that the company had been experiencing.

Project Success

SynApps Solutions immediately took support responsibility for XPS’ aging Alfresco Workdesk solution and was successful in resolving some fundamental performance problems that the customer had been experiencing. This allowed the business to work without interruption while the new system was implemented. Derivatives of the user interface constructed by SynApps has since been deployed at two other customers and is used by Alfresco in their sales presentations.

In addition to the migration project, SynApps has been contracted to operate the Alfresco platform as a managed service within the customer’s data centre. All Alfresco-related support calls are managed by the SynApps support team.
