Mechanical Contractors Association of Georgia


About Mechanical Contractors of Georgia (MCAG)

Around 1890, plumbing and heating contractors in Atlanta came together to form one of the city’s very first trade associations. Now known as the Mechanical Contractors Association of Georgia, MCAG is the state’s leading union-employing organization, representing the most talented mechanical contractors.


Problem

MCAG used a 20+ year-old, custom application developed using aging and inadequate technology (VB6 and MS Access) to manage their business. The organization needed an updated core business platform in order to scale with growth, keep up with modern infrastructure standards, and operate at a low cost with a low level of maintenance.


Solution

The Rural Sourcing team completely rebuilt the application utilizing a modern technology stack (.NET, Angular) and moved it to the AWS cloud. AWS technologies utilized include RDS (MySQL), S3, CloudWatch, EC2, Route53, CodeCommit, CodeBuild, and CodeDeploy.


Results

By utilizing a suite of light-weight yet powerful AWS services, the final product provided MCAG with a cost effective, scalable solution that could be maintained at a very low cost. The product is now far less susceptible to third party changes such as OS upgrades and legacy infrastructure.
