WOPI Case Study

CappKind Consulting

Project Background

CappKind are a high-performance construction consultant providing services throughout the UK. They have an in-house specialist software development team who create and enhance their core web platform, and they reached out to us for assistance on their latest project.

The Challenge

The in-house development team needed assistance – but not an end-to-end service – to develop their WOPI implementation, so that they could embed Microsoft Office inside their web application. Rather than a typical out-sourcing arrangement, they were looking for a co-sourcing system.

You can learn more about the benefits of co-sourcing software development over on our blog.

The Solution

We began with a two-hour consultancy session in which we explained the details of WOPI and the trickier points of WOPI implementation. As the WOPI implementation was developed, we had access to the source code, which meant we could provide feedback and help with tracking down and fixing any bugs that we came across. Microsoft approved this WOPI implementation on the first submission.
