Member Management Application Rebuild
About the International Association of Ironworkers
The International Association of Ironworkers (IAI) union assists in securing stronger benefits, better pay, safer working conditions, and a higher level of job security for its 120,000 members across North America. Their members have been involved in major construction projects such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the World Trade Center, and the Freedom Tower.
IAI engaged PUMEX for the redevelopment, integration, and modernization of their information system’s architecture, applications, and databases. These applications run most of IAI’s business processes and workflows, making the nature of our work on these systems critical to their operations.
Since 2008, IAI’s legacy software applications had been under costly development, following a haphazard process and lack of task prioritization. Pumex was able to create upgraded versions of these applications.
IAI was using legacy, custom software that ran critical internal business processes in a disconnected environment. Applications included their IWITS, IWATS, and WCP platforms. They relied on manual export/import processes, lived in silos, lacked functionality to properly record information, and were complex and costly to manage. It was determined that all applications would need to be re-built, due to inequities in code and database schema.
Self-Service Member Portal
Pumex implement this portal as a user-friendly dashboard that enables IAI to gain efficiency and save costs by significantly reducing the time needed to support members.
New System Design
Our solution included a modern design and development in parallel with the redesign, re-build, and integration of the legacy applications.
Improved Features and Functionality
Pumex integrated and improved the applications, modernized the platform/environment through code reengineering and re-development, and implemented new code
In the Cloud
Pumex implemented a cloud-based solution in Microsoft Azure along with its IaaS (Infrastructure as a Services) and PaaS solutions.
