".NET has already increased the performance of our complex payroll batch process to complete in half the time that they previously took using Magic."
Petach Tikva, Israel (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Firefly Migration, the only provider of a fully automatic migration from Magic/uniPaaS to .NET, announced today that CRS Technologies, a leading Software Solution Provider in Southern Africa, has successfully launched a new .NET based version of their flagship suite of products following a migration out of Magic Software.
By developing with .NET, CRS can now access vast libraries of existing code and incorporate new cutting-edge technologies such as web and mobile in an open and limitless environment. .NET also enables increased development productivity, significant performance improvements and eliminates license costs.
Founded in 1985, CRS markets applications that process company payrolls of hundreds of thousands of employees in 27 countries. Among the solutions that were upgraded is their popular web based product, DIY, which allows employees and managers on-line real-time access to HR and payroll information and functionality.
“We were looking to move out of Magic Software and into .NET in order to take advantage of a more robust platform and lower our TCO. We found Firefly Migration to be the only company who were able to perform this migration automatically and in a way that would achieve a quick ROI,” stated Jacques Cilliers, R&D Manager at CRS. “Firefly Migration addressed all planning and implementation challenges that we had feared immediately and in a highly professional manner. In addition, .NET has already increased the performance of our complex payroll batch process to complete in half the time that they previously took using Magic”.
Firefly Migration’s 100% automatic migration insures that the application maintains the behavior exactly like the original Magic application but now has the ability to be modernized using .NET. The unique migration methodology enabled CRS to stagger the conversion of clients to .NET, while continuing to develop in Magic to support their customers’ requirements. In tandem, CRS’s Magic developers were trained by Firefly Migration to become skilled and productive .NET developers quickly and efficiently.
“Traditional migration projects require development freezes, manual coding, high costs and significant risks. Whereas Firefly Migration’s automatic process allowed CRS to roll out a .NET version of their products in a completely risk free and efficient way,” stated Noam Honig, CEO of Firefly Migration.
