We can customize a strategy that your development team can use to modernize your application, improving its maintanability, security, and long-term sustainability.

Here's how we can help

Guidance & Training

You won’t go at it alone! We’ll teach your team sustainable upgrade strategies and how to work normal upgrades into the development workflow over time.

Upgrade Roadmap

A small team of our seasoned engineers will create a customized guide of our findings to map out the proposed steps.

Application Assessment

Our team will conduct a thorough evaluation and review of your current codebase, including third-party dependencies.

Compatibility Analysis

We’ll analyze the existing codebase, Rubygems, plugins, and third-party integrations to identify any compatibility issues with the target Ruby on Rails version to help ensure a smooth upgrade.

Downtime Minimization

Our team will plan the modernization process in a way that helps your team minimize downtime and disruption to the application's users.

A Customized Guide

Every application is unique, so we’ll create solutions to meet your specific needs, taking into consideration the app's size, complexity, objectives, and future plans.

Should You Outsource Your Upgrade?

This service is not for organizations that don’t have their own development team. If you're looking to completely outsource your Ruby on Rails app upgrade and maintenance, check out our full-service Rails Upgrade.

Additional Consulting Available

We could provide additional technical consultation as your team begins to implement the upgrade roadmap if your team needs extra support.

Digital Marketing Director at West Dermatology

While their approach to customer serivce and client relations is great, what I actually found most impressive was their ability to help develop solutions in creative ways. None of the complex content issues were a problem, and the team was always open to new information/new requirements regardless of where we were in the process.
