What Complere did
Textellent, a leader in Business Texting Solutions and named to one of the top spots by Software Advice (a Gartner company) in the 2020 year-end FrontRunners Report for SMS Marketing Software. Textellent provides a robust, flexible platform with rich out-of-the-box functionality and strong integration capabilities with Tax Softwares.
Complere approach to building real-time Integrations as microservices using Talend ESB for each Tax Softwares, where we have split the problem into master, branches and slave concept. Masters service is responsible to route the validation or process request of the requested software branch, Branches are where validation or processing is done of the client info and the slave job is common for all the branches which are responsible to load the transformed data into the database.
The scope of the engagement included the following initiatives :
- Build the transformations from scratch specific to each Tax software.
- Build a robust REST framework to take the request from the Textellent portal and send the same for validation and processing.
- Build the REST validation framework which should validate the client info uploads from Textellent customers, response error and its description in a realtime.
- Build the standard slave process to consume processed files produces by the branches.
- Build the error logging and rejects logging mechanism to identify and troubleshoot failures.
- Build the standardised process to manage codebase in GIT and deployments.
- Build a process to support both real-time client info validation and scheduled based client info processing.
Complere solution benefited the Textellent in the following ways :
- The generic framework in the system requires minimal customization, which ultimately saves development efforts and significantly reduces the cost of future implementation.
- The Talend ESB tool based microservices reduced 70% efforts on the development side.
- Using the Master, branches and Slave concept saved development costs by more than 60%
- Real-time data validation solution increased the customer satisfaction score by identifying the mistakes in the client info uploads.
Complere provided Textellent with a simple, easy to handle and high-performance data transformation solution. With the new solution, Textellent can enable its customers to uploads their client info and manage the transformed data in a centralized location. Improved rate and quality of transformations would not only help them quickly realize high ROI on their investment but also enable them to acquire major customers with a large business base in the long run.
