Performance Architect for Rapidly Expanding Credit and Payment Processing Company

As a result of its infrastructure, our Client, a rapidly expanding credit and payment processing company, was struggling to keep up with the demands of their ever-increasing business. The client had been spending money on hardware at great expense, but needed a better long-term solution.


The business was growing faster than the current infrastructure could handle and the holiday season, their peak time, was rapidly approaching.


Beacon Hill’s Philadelphia recruiting team was able to provide a highly-skilled, nationally recognized, performance architect. The engagement began with a 4-hour strategy and planning meeting with the department heads, and Beacon Hill’s consultant was immediately engaged on a long-term assignment to develop and guide their entire performance strategy. Beacon Hill’s consultant provided strategy and guidance to the highest levels of the IT organization with respect to system and application performance.

The Results

Our Client was able to dramatically improve overall system performance and operate through the Holiday Season with zero performance issues for the first time in its operation. By the most recent Holiday Season, their systems had increased to 20x their all-time peak usage and the entire organization was running smoothly.
