Case Study

A tech makeover for a legacy trading system

Reimagining a financial trading platform from the ground up is a complex undertaking

Present predicament of the company

The Hub is an ageing process-and-control workflow platform that collects information from existing financial systems.

  • The core processes involved were collection and validation of payment for increased transparency.
  • It had the capability of providing enterprise-ready products and services.
  • A growing customer base was a challenge for this old trading, revenue, and income platform.

How Founding Minds endured multiple obstacles during implementation

Migrating a large customer base from an obsolete income platform was a herculean task.


  • No modern browser support is offered.
  • A large active user base familiar with the currently existing system.
  • Maintaining a decades-old technology is tough for the development team.
  • Recruiting new developers familiar with old technologies.
