The Hutchins Story

Hutchins approached Mobilize.Net with very specific requirements: 

  • Move the application to a modern platform to enable agile, rapid development
  • Maintain a familiar look and feel so that long-time customers wouldn’t be disoriented
  • Provide an architecture that expands options – Hutchins can move the application to a SaaS model in the future.

With those requirements in mind, Mobilize.Net was able to assess the Credittime 2000 codebase, convert it to HTML5, then refine the code to work optimally on the web. Separately, the UX team pulled together a look and feel that would enable customers to continue to run Credittime 2000 without disruption.
