The client in this particular case was an extremely affluent and distinguished gentleman that mixed in financial circles and had an awful lot of influence in the financial world. They had extensive experience of using financial systems but had not yet come across one that had all the functionality they needed to be able to conduct business as efficiently as was necessary for the smooth operation of his business. they required Tentacle Solutions to build a brand new .NET system that was to be based around an archaic system. It was to enable them to keep track of his financial transactions, investments and other financial information that they needed for personal use. The information was present in that system but needed to be transferred into the new one that we were to design, build and develop.
Tentacle Solutions commenced this project by researching the individual financial background of the 200 varied functions that resided in the existing if archaic system. Every function was vital to the operation of his business as well as his personal finances. As such, every function had to be effectively transferred without losing its actual functionality because it was an extremely valuable source of information for our client and also the businessmen they regularly dealt with. However, as the archaic system was not compatible with modern technological systems, we were required to overhaul the entire system but not until the nature of every single function was established.
Eventually, after our extensive research was complete, we started to build the new system on a modern platform. Our communication with the client was conducted via regular Internet meetings with the client. they were often in various cities around the world as a result of his business dealings, thus making face-to-face contact impossible. After 18 months Tentacle Solutions delivered a Windows .NET executive desktop solution that allowed central governments, NGOs and banks to liase with each other.
