Mark Information Modernizes Workforce Management Solution with Progress

With Progress Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge, and Kendo UI, Mark Information brought its workforce management solution to the cloud and increased performance by 30%

BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 25, 2018-- Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS), the leading provider of application development and digital experience technologies, today announced that Mark Information, a leading provider of workforce management solutions, has brought their platform to the cloud and into the future for its customers, by modernizing with Progress® Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge® and Progress® Kendo UI® technologies.

With offices in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the United Kingdom, longtime Progress partner Mark Information is an innovative software company offering workforce management solutions for large and medium-sized businesses. Built on the Progress® OpenEdge® platform, its solution needed an upgrade to meet the needs of today’s complex payroll and workforce management needs while remaining secure, fast and high-performing. These new requirements included supporting mobility and GDPR compliance capabilities.

“Progress has been our primary technology partner for more than 30 years and has always proactively enabled us to evolve over time, to keep up with technology changes, so we can deliver the best for our customers,” said Morten Janum, Chief Information Officer, Mark Information. “Our move to the cloud was no exception, and the experience has been seamless for our customers.”

By upgrading to OpenEdge 11.7, deploying PAS for OpenEdge and leveraging the frontend web UI capabilities of Progress Kendo UI, Mark Information was able to migrate its workforce management app from on-premise to a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution and deliver the more modern experience its enterprise customers wanted. In addition, with an accelerated development timeframe to meet GDPR deadlines, Mark Information was able to deliver the revolutionized, secure, GDPR-compliant offering to its customers quickly, ahead of the GDPR deadline, along with a 30% improvement in application performance.

Built on Apache Tomcat, PAS for OpenEdge is a scalable, secure and standards-based application server that facilitates the modernization of legacy applications to deliver modern digital experiences and cloud and mobile-first deployments. With PAS for OpenEdge, Mark Information was able to seamlessly migrate to the cloud, in part, because they didn’t have to build authorizations and security from scratch. In addition, the upgraded user interface provided by Kendo UI ensured customers could easily access and engage with the system with a great user experience.

“PAS for OpenEdge helps developers evolve complex, strategic business applications in less time, while minimizing security vulnerabilities and easing installation, configuration and management,” said John Ainsworth, Senior Vice President, Core Products, Progress. “Mark Information is a great example of an organization that has used Progress as the foundation for its efforts, providing new integration capabilities and allowing other applications to tap into the business logic through APIs.”
