Our iterative approach and collaboration in alignment with the client’s objectives and values enabled constant platform improvement, helping employees around the world build bonds and celebrate achievements, fostering a positive workplace culture.
Migration from Angular to a new version. Multi-faceted architecture. Social recognition features. Reporting and BI features.
Langate worked with the client to develop a staff augmentation model. We became an extension of the company’s in-house software development team to provide quick feature deployment and constant improvement for the social employee recognition platform.
Employee recognition is one of the most important relationship-building tools. It helps brands to build relationships between managers and teams, create a better atmosphere within the company, and make employees feel seen and valued. However, it’s not easy to track performance in big organizations. But, with high-quality employee recognition software, large brands can track their employees’ achievements and life events and give praise when it’s due.
Madison PG offers an employee recognition platform just like this. They are constantly working to improve their software, so they needed an extension of their in-house team to help them with quick feature deployment, modernization, and infrastructure improvements. They were searching for a software development vendor who could hop on the project quickly, offer initiative and deep expertise, and become a part of their team rather than just consultants. They found it all in Langate.
Madison PG is an employee recognition leader that offers multi-faceted recognition, incentive, and service anniversary programs. The company’s main aim is to improve company culture and employee behavior to achieve an inspiring, engaging, and balanced work life. They currently offer their cloud-based SaaS technology to five million users, 160 countries, and many well-known Fortune 500 companies.
Improving software and adding new features
Madison PG works with market leaders. They are constantly looking to improve their software and add new features to keep up with their ever-growing competition. They have been on the market for a while now and they want to make sure that they follow all the new HR trends and provide the best user experience for their long-time clients.
Boosting software performance
To work on business and development goals like top-notch product performance, constant modernization, high-level security, and speedy addition of new features, Madison PG needed an extension to their existing in-house development team. Their main requirements were high quality and quick improvements.
Together with the Madison PG team, we worked on over 100 features, 20 releases, and 25 infrastructure improvements. Our biggest tasks included:
Madison PG’s social recognition software is powered by Maestro, a uniquely configurable cloud-based SaaS technology. The company often modernizes its product for better performance and compatibility, so they wanted to move it from AngularJS to Angular 9. We successfully completed this process.
Every business has specific needs; they don’t always need all the platform’s features. Therefore, we created a multi-faceted architecture that allows Madison PG users to include or exclude features from the package to make the product efficient and highly configurable.
To turn technology into a bonding tool, we deployed activity streams via video, messaging, audio, and likes for separate users or the whole company. The network feature helps team members to recognize and get to know each other and receive updates on their milestones.
Employees deserve to be noticed instantly. As soon as they do something great, their managers can generate any award type (points, gift cards, etc.) and send it to the high-performing individual.
This feature allows managers to receive updates and notifications about professional and personal milestones, such as promotions, work anniversaries, birthdays, and family events. This improves employee loyalty and increases the feeling of belonging within the organization.
The reporting and BI features we developed with the Madison PG team allow managers to easily collect data and measure the performance of individuals, teams, and the entire company. All the data is presented in graphs and charts, and managers can personalize their dashboards as they wish.
This feature allows managers all over the world to manage awards, including gift cards, points, merchandise, experiential awards, and charities. There are a variety of options to choose from, and awards can be delivered anywhere.
This block has many features, including real-time achievements, goal management, and regular check-ins. It helps to connect managers and teams to build better relationships within the workplace.
Together with Madison PG, we also created integrations with Workday, Oracle, Salesforce, and other applications.
I have worked with quite a few offshore development firms over the past 15 years with little success. Most of the offshore teams I have worked with would treat you like they are consulting for you. Langate has done everything possible to integrate as part of the team and our company. We have worked together to solve many issues and problems to ensure our business relationship fires on all cylinders. If you have the need for an offshore development firm, I HIGHLY recommend working with Langate.
