According to Ramsey and Marshall, Kendo UI helped slash development by 30-40 percent. “Kendo UI makes its own gravy—it just works,” said Ramsey.
“Any time we needed functionality that wasn’t already provided out-of-the-box, we were able to customize an existing widget or leverage the Progress community to find the solution,” added Ramsey.
Another key benefit of Kendo UI is simplified compliance. “One of the reasons we chose the Kendo UI framework was its ability to handle and monitor controls, so our security officers can be confident we are compliant with PCI requirements,” said Marshall. “BridgePay answers to both internal and external security officers who perform regular audits, and Kendo UI has passed muster every time for the last four years. It provides all the necessary security features for a public-facing website that contains sensitive data.”
“Progress tools reduced the amount of work involved in developing the new site by a factor of three, and enabled us to deliver a comprehensive portal that is easy to use, visually appealing and flexible to accommodate the diverse needs of our customers,” said Ramsey.
Ramsey added that the team is also looking at adopting Telerik® Test Studio® by Progress in the near future to automate testing. “We have been very happy using Kendo UI and look forward to continuing to improve the functionality on MyBridgePay.com by leveraging Progress tools and solutions,” she said.
