Software Retrofit – Turning Old into New
The term "retrofit" is widely used to describe the conversion or replacement of components in old production plants. It means that the machines are brought up to date without replacing the entire installation. But software can also be modernised so that it gradually becomes a maintainable system again.
This is an important step, because technology is constantly evolving and there is increasing pressure on companies to constantly improve in order to meet the rising expectations of their customers. Due to technological change, companies are therefore equipping themselves for the future with the help of retrofit projects.
With the service "software retrofit", w3logistics helps companies to realise exactly that and was able to support companies like KHS GmbH or Thüringer Kühlhäuser GmbH, for example, to modernise their software.
For the customers, a retrofit project is very advantageous because, for example:
- Operations are disrupted as little as possible, as there is no complete changeover of the software
- The software becomes maintainable again and can thus benefit from updates
- This is particularly useful for mission-critical systems, which can cause problems for the core business in the event of a complete failure
- Extends the functionality of the system
- Lower costs than introducing new software
- Less effort for staff training
Appropriate to the topic, w3logistics offers you the possibility to check how "healthy" your software is by answering questions under the name „Software-Coma-Scale“. This is free of charge and the process only takes a minute.
You too can benefit from the innovative possibilities of our team and convince yourself of the advantages of a software retrofit with w3logistics.
