Nowadays for business executives it is vital to understand the way in which technology is going to impact the business. Is a rapid changing world, so there is always a need to adapt, to develop new functionalities.
New devices, new technologies, new general purpose software become available and have an impact on the functionalities that have already been built.
Our extensive and proven expertise can provide technical vision to your business vision and together we can find the most innovative and cost-effective solution.
Our goal is to support the full life-cycle for development, support and maintenance of applications and software programs.
Our main focus is on modern technologies like Progress Open Edge (BPM, Corticon), .Net, Java, Sky & Cloud Computing, Enabling Tablets & Smart Phones. We are used to work in a hybrid environment, connecting to already existent systems, because we have learned that integration of different environments is key to using the strengths of each environment. – Integration towards a web (shop) front end, integration with social media, integration with payment systems.
By bringing together the right components in one environment will enhance the productivity; therefore we’ll have a more efficient and effective way of using resources.
Our way of working
Customer value today can only be created by constantly developing new solutions to existing problems, by doing better today what we did yesterday and tomorrow what we do today. We offer to our customers a long-term relationship, combining a flexible and agile approach with our in-depth experience and expertise, striving to come up with innovative and scalable solutions that best meet their business requirements.
We listen carefully to each client, paying attention to each on an individual basis, because each one is different and has specific needs. In the first phase of the partnership, knowledge needs to be exchanged. Wayfare will appoint a project lead to work very closely with the project lead of the customer. This helps to better exchange ideas, and to make competent suggestions instead of asking from the client to constantly define every single detail of a project.
All our people have a good balance of technical and soft skills and they are permanently challenged to develop their competencies. Beside the attention given to the technical expertise, we have a strong focus on communication skills because we know how important it is to have a good understanding of the needs of our customers, to assure the right level of discussions and the best cooperation between us and our customers.
Wayfare can assist in different parts of the development cycle. This can be done at several levels:
just an addition to the existing application
as a new module covering a specific functional area
as a new application
In all situations a careful preparation is necessary to understand the specific needs, to cover several situations and exceptions. In close cooperation the technical environment is chosen.
In only a very small number of cases the application will not change after it has been build. Even if a new replacement is under construction the current application needs to be adjusted. Wayfare can maintain applications in several technologies. We have a lot of experience in maintaining environments running for many years.
The areas that can be covered by Modernization are huge, focus can be put on extending the UI (User Interface) of the application so that some parts of the whole application can be reached using just a smart phone or tablet computer.
Implement Busines Process Management
In the old days we had to process the changes to the database in a batch run mostly at night. Then came the transactional systems that either maintained the tables containing all data or the systems that handled a complete process (create invoice, enter order for purchase). Today’s systems give you the ability to on one hand handle the complete process but also to create a task for the person responsible for the next step in the process. This separation can be triggered due to the fact that not everyone has the same authority to execute processes, to give discounts, to approve a loan. Other examples are new recruitment approvals, salary increase approvals, inventory check and many others
New look&feel of the UI
Applications build some years ago are build using the technologies available at that time and might look outdated. Compared to some years ago there is a lot more functionality available to build a far more attractive and easier to use User Interface. Interaction with other applications has become easier, and the tools for easy communication and processing have improved. Interactions with other applications is more easy, but also the tools that can be used to easy communication and processing. In most cases, the modernization of the UI has a very big impact on the ability to sell the application to new customers.
More and more companies are not willing to invest money upfront to buy servers, hardware, licenses. In those cases using applications out of the cloud can be a solution. Although there are applications available in several areas (CRM by SalesFore, HRM by Workday, recruitment by Jobvite, etc.) there are still large areas that do not have a cloud solution available. For those Solution Providers it might be an opportunity to make their application Cloud ready.
Structure business Rules using Rules Based Engines
Modern applications require more flexibility regarding the usage of business rules. The are several areas where rules need to be adjusted according to changing internal regulations, financial and fiscal regulations, changes in processes and many others. The business logic is no longer hardcoded in the software. In those cases the usage of OpenEdge Corticon can help you to bring the definition and maintenance of the business rules to the end-user of business user.

As a company, we believe that we have a social responsibility. This is why, from the moment we began functioning, we paid special attention to the environment and to offering support to the people with particular needs.
At the end of our first year of activity, because of the approaching winter holidays, we thought that it would be nice to share our joy with the less fortunate. Kind of becoming someone’s Santa. After searching for options on how to do that, we found out about The ShoeBox Project.
The ShoeBox is a Christmas campaign with the goal of collecting presents, packaged in nicely decorated shoeboxes and distributing them to families and people in need. We are happy that we can say that together we made some children smile on Christmas day!
