Modernizing Legacy Software To Boost Productivity


Cactus Feeders’ existing solution, based on KENDO, was very slow and complex in managing operational procedures that affected productivity and caused delays in performing tasks.


Cactus Feeders wanted to speed up operational processes such as entering and managing data to reduce time to perform tasks and enhance user experience by using updated set of technologies.


Folio3 revamped and upgraded the existing systems to boost up productivity and to enhance user experience across the value chain.



Cactus Feeders
- Pork View

One of the largest beef and pork producers in the US, the company stands by its mission of feeding a hungry world while staying sustainable. With one out of every 25 cattle being fed by Cactus Feeders, they produce more than 12 million pounds of beef as well as more than 2 million pounds of pork, which amounts to over 56 million meals every week!

Understanding the Challenge

Legacy System Slowing Down Operations

The client wanted to modernize an existing legacy system software that was impacting performance and slowing down their pig farming processes from breeding and gestation to grow-finish. The current system they had was challenging them in the following ways:

  • The user interface was difficult to use and the design wasn’t very appealing. The grids in the system frustrated the users and weren’t easy to use.
  • The system used outdated technology that lacked advanced features and new updates. It made the system very slow, which had a negative effect on the user experience.
  • The system took very long to load. For instance, if one clicked on one of the data planes to produce data, it took 7 to 10 seconds to appear, which naturally slowed down performance.

Building The Solution

Revamping The Existing Solution Using Modern Technology

Using the latest relevant technologies, we facilitated the client in revamping the User Interface as well as User Experience for the solution and helped them migrate to a modern platform that solved their challenges and catered to their needs in a better manner. Our solution helped manage the number of animals coming in and out of the farm, their feeding, their weights, their owners, their movements down to when they’re sent back to packing and shipping. Using hand-held devices, the farmers and workers enter data, and the managers manage with break-even calculators.

Our Approach

  • Understanding The User Journey

    After identifying the challenges being faced by the client and those using the existing solution, we decided to focus on areas that needed improvement in the application like design and technology. We helped set priorities and user roles and then employed an incremental approach to update and modernize the solution.
  • Building Wireframes & Designs

    The client wanted something modern and innovative and we built the wireframes keeping that in mind. Since a major part of the project was revamping the design, wireframing and design was a very important part of the process. The client loved the designs we created including the colors, pictures, and icons.
  • Development

    Our development team then incorporated the structural as well as design changes and upgraded the existing system across all business functions and operations.
  • Deployment

    They then migrated the data to the new, responsive solution and integrated the application with the backend. After deployment, they explained the changes in technology and UI to the client so they could further explain them to the users.
