The Solution: Application Migration Serivces
The client had a whole range of critical operations and for any enterprise; flexibility and responsiveness become key issues. Some of these operations included regulatory compliances. To address the issues successfully, there was a need to access real-time information about all aspects of their operations as well as the ability to allow their customers to get a personalized self-service interface to their products and services.

- Vehicle Maintenance System: Designed to comply with DOT (Department of Transportation) and state requirements for maintenance record keeping on fleet vehicles – buses, trucks, shuttles, vanpools, taxis, etc. In addition to normal maintenance activities such as repair orders and parts inventory, it tracked daily inspections, required periodic inspections and accident/incident events. It also notified supervisors of required inspections and tracked driver logbook hours.
Rishabh Software proved its ability in application migration services by transforming client’s existing applications in order to provide cost-effective browser access to business information and data processing. Client-Server applications were converted into web applications allowing more personnel to access business information, often at a fraction of the current operating costs. The project team re-implemented the existing applications as web-based applications developed using ASP.net. The client wanted to have all the forms look exactly similar to their existing windows platform application forms. This was a tough challenge as there are technological differences between windows form control and web controls.
In its simplest form, the solution provided a controlled exchange of information between the client and the existing application and redesigning and modularizing the application in multiple layers also improved maintainability.
The application migration services were performed using the below technology.
- ASP.Net 2.0 using C#
- SQL Server 2000
