A liquor store located in Hoboken, New Jersey has required a new EMV (chip card) enabled point of sale system to replace their existing COBOL based liquor POS System. The customer has requested their inventory information along with bottle size, stock and price to be extracted from the old system and programmed into a new one. In addition, several custom cloud-based reports had to be created to smooth the transition from the old system.

Lack of export tools in the existing software
Absence of documentation related to the old system
Outdated programming language (COBOL)
Antiquated software work flow
