Legacy Platform Modernization

Making a case for evolution

Legacy platforms are often the mission-critical bedrock of business operations. But what do you do when its foundational functionality starts to erode?

The passing of the torch

As with all technology, software eventually becomes outdated and starts to work more slowly and less efficiently. Once your legacy platform starts causing more friction than it reduces, it's time to consider a replacement strategy.

With expertise rooted in process automation, 3merge doesn't just rebuild legacy platforms to function as the status quo. We tactfully search for improvement opportunities and where your systems can leverage or work with newer technologies. Our agile deployment reduces the need for a hard cutover while delivering value earlier in the project timeline.

Outcomes & Applications

Say hello to the new and improved

Modernizing your legacy platforms opens the door to numerous advantages, such as these commonly experienced benefits:

Workflow Alignment

Rebuilding a legacy platform provides the opportunity to better align its functions to your current workflows and processes.

General Optimization

In addition to improving process efficiency, modernizing a system can also optimize your workflows and costs.


Moving away from on-premise solutions to cloud-based ones extends your remote working capabilities and business continuity.


Modernizing outdated systems allows for the possibility of leveraging newer technologies, thus extending the functionality and value of core features.


Rebuilding your legacy software on a newer platform grants you the opportunity to take advantage of scalable architecture that grows with your business.


There are many hidden costs to running outdated software like maintenance, security and lost opportunity costs. Modernizing can lower your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Step 1

Identify & Ideate

When rebuilding a legacy platform, our first objective is identifying the core features you want to retain. We then work with you to ideate how to simplify processes, extend functionality and integrate newer technologies into the modernized version.

Step 2


We release your modernized platform across multiple, stable batches. This approach reduces the stress and risk associated with a hard cutover date while also delivering value faster than a singular transition between solutions.

Iterate & Improve

Rebuilding a legacy platform is an iterative undertaking in and of itself. As with all software solutions, there eventually comes the next stage of changes - and we will be here to help you improve upon it once again.

Our Process

A purposeful pivot

Deciding to modernize legacy platforms is no small endeavour. We understand the effort and time involved in such an undertaking, which is why we commit to only making necessary changes. This pivot for your business is significant, and we promise to keep it purposeful.

Case Study

How we helped Gentek modernize their legacy platform

As a linchpin to many existing workflows, Gentek's ageing legacy platform was slowing them down. They recognized it was time for a change.
