request background

Switching to SaaS to elevate existing software with advanced live streaming technology

The client experienced a strong need to create a live-streaming app that would empower its clients to effortlessly coordinate, oversee, and broadcast live events to a worldwide audience.

Focused on elevating its service portfolio, our client decided to step toward SaaS-based video streaming app development for existing functionality upgrades. At the same time, the company stressed the significance of incorporating robust payment systems.

Overall, the request was centered around revitalizing outdated system components within the platform to enhance performance, scalability, and user satisfaction.

Legacy event management system modernization with integration features and state-of-the-art technologies

Our client encountered a significant challenge in adapting its current event management infrastructure to modern customer needs technology-wise. Integrating and merging legacy systems with novice technologies and additional tools also posed issues to the client’s workflow.

Since the company’s client scope is wide and diverse, they had to ensure consistent video streaming performance regardless of traffic volumes and server loads. That being said, our first task was to analyze the client’s system bottlenecks and build a live-streaming app that would address the industry’s challenges.

Furthermore, the platform required seamless integration of robust payment systems to enable smooth transactions and provide monetization options for event organizers and attendees. During the live-streaming app development, we had to prioritize integration settings to ensure that the new system cooperates with top billing tools.

Our challenge was to turn the client’s obstacles into growth opportunities, working on their inner tech issues and improving user interactions with live-chat features. Having mapped out the stages of live-streaming platform development with the client, our developers outlined the following main goals:


  1. Enhance scalability, performance, and maintainability of the live-event streaming platform by updating existing infrastructure, ensuring alignment with contemporary technologies and industry standards.
  2. Seamlessly incorporate secure payment gateways, merchant services, and financial APIs to streamline payment processing, billing, invoicing, and revenue tracking functionalities for event organizers and customers.
  3. Introduce interactive elements like live chat, polls, Q&A sessions, and social media integration to elevate audience engagement and encourage real-time interaction throughout live events.
  4. Improve scalability, reliability, and performance of the platform, implementing SaaS best practices for seamless operation even during peak traffic and high-demand events.

Then, we outlined a comprehensive strategy encompassing business goals, target audience, revenue models, and a roadmap for seamless integration of advanced features. Next, we employed flexible monetization options to help the client unlock fresh revenue streams and optimize their return on investment.

Considering the current system issues, the development team decided on an appropriate tech stack for software modernization. Our developers implemented Agile methodology to promote adaptability and responsiveness to changing requirements throughout the development lifecycle.

Acropolium also conducted rigorous testing at each development stage.
