Year-Round Berry Grower and Shipper
Type of Product
Wish Farms works with a community of growers to provide only the best tasting berries. With a green thumb and a passion for fresh berries, their farmers put in the work to bring smiles to you and your family.
When Wish Farms contacted us, they had an accuracy issue with their inventory management software. In addition, intermittent data loss was occurring when employees were in the field, resulting in inaccurate data entry and financial loss to the company.
We knew they needed a cloud-native solution that could scale as the company added more locations and pickers, accurately scanning inventory and tracking it through each stage of the workflow.
We wanted to establish a collaborative model with the client, using our robust, agile development process to define a core list of features and break the project into phases based on the business value of each feature set.
We needed to define a solution that would enhance and support the existing web and mobile applications while increasing reliability and performance.
WHAT WE BUILT
We migrated the legacy backend of the Wish Farms berry tracking app from a monolith on Digital Ocean VMs to a serverless microservice backend on AWS, using Lambda and an API Gateway. We also migrated their CaseLink Pro ETL process from on-prem Docker containers to Lambda containers driven by EventBridge.
In addition, we added more comprehensive logging to ensure the data was correctly transferred from the mobile application to the inventory database, this gave admins a more comprehensive snapshot into the accuracy of the pickers and the clamshells they were scanning in.
API endpoints were updated in the applications to match migration changes. Also, frontend upgrades were developed on the mobile and web applications adding additional features to the barcode scanning and printing workflow.
Before release, the applications and Lambdas were load tested to ensure they could meet peak demand requirements in the field.
We have a dedicated and cost-effective hybrid team, with an onshore Product Manager and developers from our build center in Colombia. Each member focused on the success of the AWS migration and new feature development.
By removing legacy tech we were able to modernize their system and eliminate data issues plaguing the software. Migrating to AWS gave Wish Farms a stable foundation that is more reliable, cost-effective, and built to scale.
