Cultivate a Thriving Talent Ecosystem with AspireVue

Customer Background

The AspireVue platform began as a leader assessment portal for individuals and organizational users, created by Dr. Larry Kuhn and his company. Many corporations streamline talent selection, onboarding, performance, and development using the most advanced technology of the AspireVue Talent Management Platform. As AspireVue users began asking for more capabilities, Dr. Larry’s current team knew that they needed to outsource a team of full-stack developers. Thus, in 2019, Sigma Solve became their expert developer to help build out and modernize the AspireVue platform.

Industry

The Challenges

Initially, Sigma Solve developers were tasked with some unique challenges, including migrating from the Liferay platform to more versatile HTML code. AspireVue’s platform also needed to have complex database management, detailed reporting features, robust performance review, and goal-setting processes, a user-friendly dashboard and journey structure, community and e-learning components, robust store management connections, professional coach functionality, third-party integrations, analytics, and more.

  • Understand the business and its existing system built on the Liferay platform.
  • Designing a complex database management framework with abundant data.
  • Enhancing the core features of their web platform, i.e., production and reports.
  • Building robust store management with assessments and coaching hours.
  • Developing a performance review module with the development plan.

Solutions

After the initial discovery phase, AspireVue’s team and the Sigma Solve developers repeatedly followed a four-step process: application design, architecture design, development and testing, and maintenance. Once functionality was deployed, this process started over with new features and user options. Most importantly, each phase was completed without interrupting AspireVue’s subscribers’ continued use of their licensed modules.

In addition to the original challenges, Sigma Solve continued to work with the AspireVue team to develop:

  • Updated company, user, and employee access settings.
  • Streamlined assessment, purchasing design, workplace community, and insight stream modules.
  • The project management module, email notification functions, and templates were revamped.
  • An expansion of the goal management module and 360 features were enhanced.
  • Integration with Power BI and other data intelligence tools with detailed visuals. 
  • An eLearning module with badges, courses, and various educational solutions.
  • Migrating the hosting of AspireVue to Amazon Web Service.
  • API integration to connect different software applications.
  • Custom app development and submissions to the Google and Apple App Stores.

Outcomes

Sigma Solve adopted a dual approach of developing new features to build AspireVue’s capabilities while modernizing its web platform and enhancing overall efficiency. As a result, AspireVue subscribers can experience a fast platform with an easy-to-navigate workflow.

 

Below are some additional outcomes of the Sigma Solve and AspireVue partnership:

  • Higher performance and better job-fit employees reduce the risk of bad hires.
  • Improved team relationships, simplified hiring and development processes, lower turnover, and stronger business results.
