At FLOvate, long and complex project implementations are a thing of the past.

Here’s how we do it.

1. Requirements Analysis

Get in touch via the Contact Us form on our website. One of our process experts will respond within one working day to arrange a convenient time to talk about your project.  

2. Proof of Concept

Once we understand your needs, we’ll build your custom Proof of Concept (PoC) application. This typically takes under two weeks (often much less). We will then set up a demonstration of your PoC. This is the exciting part as you get to see your solution come to life!


3. Feedback and refine

It’s time to refine your PoC, working closely with you to accurately gather feedback, implement changes and iterate fast until your solution is ready to go. Remember: LEAP is fully customisable, which means that you can make updates and changes at any time – you are never restricted by the software.


4. Testing phase

Your solution now enters its testing phase. FLOvate has a dedicated and highly experienced QA team whose job it is to find bugs and fix them before your solution is rolled out.


5. Simple licence fee

We operate a simple and transparent licence-based pricing structure. Pricing is competitively scaled to the size of your organisation and based on the user activity rather than just the number of users – which means you only pay for what you use. For an indication of your monthly fees, please get in touch.


6. Tailored Training

Tailored training will ensure you and your team gain system confidence fast; classroom-based or remote, it’s your choice. Once you’re fully proficient, we offer certification options which enable you to manage your own future changes to the system. Enjoy complete control.


7. Dedicated UK Support

Your solution doesn’t stop there. Our friendly, UK-based support staff are always on hand to take your calls or emails. We can also provide your own tailored support package to make system changes for you – that’s if you decide not to manage them yourself.


8. Hosting LEAP in the cloud

Cloud DeploymentServer Deployment

LEAP can be easily deployed on The Cloud to save investment on costly servers.

We can arrange a Cloud deployment for you, using the Microsoft Azure network or alternatively we can work with you to ensure your Cloud deployment goes smoothly.

Server Software Requirements

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 / 2012 R2 / 2014 R2
  • Microsoft .Net 4.5
  • Windows Identity Framework
  • IIS7 or higher with Windows Communication Foundation Activations turned on
  • SQL Server 2008 (SP2) / 2012 (SP3) / 2014 (SP2) Standard Edition (ensure SQL Server instance is allocated minimum of 7GB RAM)


Hardware Requirements

As a minimum the following is required;

  • 4 core (2.4 GHz Intel Xeon® E5-2673 v3 processor)
  • 14 gigabytes (GB) of RAM minimum
  • 10 GB or more of available space (this depends on client usage and predicted throughput)



For SQL Server configuration we recommend that all database files are stored on non OS disks. LEAP uses tempdb frequently so there are performance benefits moving these to different disks than the user databases.

Minimum Server Requirements 

This specification will support approximately 100 concurrent users for configurations of moderate complexity.

For user populations in excess of 100 concurrent users or complex enterprise requirements please contact us with details.


LEAP Installation/Configuration

The LEAP installation requires both web services and windows services to be hosted on the server.

LEAP Web Services

There are number of web services that will need to be hosted within IIS with a http and https binding. The LEAP windows service, client WPF application (local workstation) and website (server hosted) will need to be able to connect to these endpoints.

LEAP Windows Service

This will need to be installed as a standard windows service and it will host a number of svc endpoints on a configured port. The client WPF application (local workstation) and website (server hosted) will need to be able to connect to these svc endpoints.

LEAP Workflow Server Service

This will need to be installed as a standard windows service and communicate to the LEAP SQL database and LEAP web services.


Database and Documents

There are 3 SQL Server databases required for LEAP’s data storage and a local document store for the document storage.  The disk space capacity for these will be depend on analysis of the client throughput.
