CASE STUDY

APSCA’s Digital Transformation Journey with Ksense Technology Group

The Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA), an industry association founded in 2015 to support the social compliance auditing profession, found itself in a crisis when their custom Knack application reached its breaking point. The previous development team had left the application with numerous issues, including database structure problems, security vulnerabilities, and a costly reliance on Make (formerly Integromat) for automation. Seeking a solution to stabilize and enhance their application, APSCA turned to Ksense Technology Group for their expertise in software development and business process optimization.

Client Profile

APSCA’s existing custom Knack application posed several critical challenges that threatened the organization’s ability to support its members and fulfill its mission:

  • Structural and Security Issues: Database structure problems and security vulnerabilities put APSCA’s data and operations at risk.
  • Costly and Error-Prone Automation: Dependence on Make for automation caused data errors and increased costs due to improper integration.
  • Limited Functionality: Lack of essential features like custom invoicing, complex business logic, QuickBooks integrations, and custom reports hindered operational efficiency.

APSCA needed a partner who could not only address these immediate concerns but also provide a long-term solution that would support their growth and evolving needs.

Project Scope

We developed a comprehensive, multi-phase solution to address APSCA’s challenges and set them on a path towards digital transformation:

  • Immediate Stabilization:
    • Migrated APSCA to a secure Amazon Web Services account.
    • Implemented API best practices to address security vulnerabilities.
    • Replaced costly Make scenarios with custom code, reducing costs and improving reliability.
  • Application Enhancement:
    • Revamped the custom Knack application with new, tailored features.
    • Developed a custom invoicing application and integrated complex business logic and QuickBooks.
    • Built custom reports and dashboards to save time and improve efficiency.
    • Implemented a sophisticated notification system using SendGrid.
  • Future-Proofing:
    • Started developing a new web application using Next.js to ensure scalability and up-to-date technology.

Throughout the project, we focused on gaining a deep understanding of APSCA’s business, allowing us to design and implement features that perfectly aligned with the organization’s unique requirements.
