Website for industrial machinery manufacturer

Website for industrial machinery manufacturer

After six months of dedicated work, our team has developed four attractive, cohesive, and visually engaging websites that allow users to easily navigate and communicate with our client.

For the American department of our client’s firm, we created a site that informs the visitors about machine installation, sales and distribution, start-up services, repair, service maintenance, engineering, and technical support, and more. It also includes the chats for communicating with support/finance specialists.

We also built the portals for the Canadian, South American markets that both take into account the peculiarities of the regions and reflect the massive scale of our client’s global business. Our customer is completely satisfied with the results of our work, and we look forward to new challenging tasks from them in the future.

Booking Calendar for the Entertainment Industry

Booking Calendar for the Entertainment Industry

Our task was to create and implement a booking calendar that would allow quick venue rentals for concerts, festivals, bands, and individual performers.
When the client turned to us for help, the system itself was almost ready for deployment to the production environment. We had to implement new features smoothly to avoid any issues with the existing functionality. Moreover, we had to improve the interface and usability of the service so that the end user gets the most convenient venue booking platform which surpasses the competitors.
Our team used Drupal 7 for the backend, and Angular for frontend. We fixed the issues regarding slow hosting by improving poor legacy code quality. We managed to create a calendar that works smoothly and quickly like Google calendar, so the user is able to create a new event just by clicking on a suitable day.
Thanks to regular communication with the client and deep expertise in JavaScript, we managed to complete the project for just two months. Even though this part of work is done, our team still remains in close partnership with the client and supports their other projects.

App Development for an On-Demand Child Care Service

QArea got a request from a US-based company to help them with reengineering and further development of the Web, Android, and iOS versions of their child care app.

The first version of the child care app has been successfully released on the App Store and Google Play. The app received very positive reviews from both the company and its customers. We’ve succeeded in helping our client revolutionize the way center-based child care works where parents can effortlessly design their own schedule and pay by the hour. We continue to improve the app and extend it with new features, making it even more flexible and responsive with every new version.

Allwomenstalk

We were to create a mobile client for the blog. Primarily the task was difficult as the blog was already an established brand. It is popular and beloved, with a unique stile and format. Quite a pack of expectations we had to surpass.

OUR SOLUTION

We created a multilingual iOS application available in English, French, Dutch, Italian and Traditional Chinese. Additionally Twitter was integrated for deeper engagement of visitors. All their favorite posts are now easily shared with but a tap of a finger.

Allwomenstalk app is very like the blog itself, however is more comfortable, runs faster and is simpler in use.

The Huffington Post

The Huffington Post

The portal is based on the MovableType platform, which has been modified to minimize the number of database queries and to improve performance. To load a server in order to process pictures, CSS and other statistic content, Amazon S3 is used. To ensure stable and efficient work under heavy and peak loads we have used the memcache technology, which is a general-purpose distributed memory caching system that allows speeding up dynamic database-driven websites by caching data and objects in memory to reduce the number of times the database must be read. For subsystem where database queries were slow but memcache couldn't be used because it wasn't a persistent storage the team used Redis NoSQL server.
Also Akamai caching system was used to dramatically decrease number of incoming requests approximately in 1 000 000 times , this system allows flexibly and functionality required to easily configure each page and create different caches for it.
QArea developers have implemented rather serious new functionality for this site: our own custom app, based on Google Maps API was created. It operates with a large number of images that were generated by our team. The app is fully capable of withstanding enormous volumes of data (~1 million rows) and can support a large number of users at the same time.
Several data storages were used by our developers in order to properly set up the comments system: first they used MySQL with "nested set" datamodel, then comments system was moved to MongoDB and implemented as a web service. New solution easily works with more than 100 000 000 records database.
Websocket Front-end Solution was used for reliable message delivery and adding latest news and comments to already loaded pages, aligned with Erlang-based server implementation. The system was configured for sending 150 000 messages per second.
A powerful statistics system has been implemented in the back-end: there is a statistics of tracking of entries, statistics of visits referred from different search engines. There is also statistics of the sites referring to huffingtonpost.com and general tracking of keywords/key phrases which can be used to refer the users to the site.

REBELMOUSE

REBELMOUSE

The task was to develop a social media aggregator that allows to create user accounts, to connect different social media accounts and conveniently manage the information from them on one single platform.
We were also to develop a fitting iOS app that was requited to allow creation of a dynamic feed of messages from social networks with a few touches.

RebelMouse is an aggregator for social media that was launched by Huffington Post CTO Paul Berry. On the first look this platform looks like a digital newspaper that represents user’s social media events.
Basic registration allows users to connect their accounts on Twitter and Facebook. The updates from the connected accounts are represented in the collage-style information flow that shows user’s presence within social media. RebelMouse allows user to arrange the posts displayed on the dashboard. The user page is updated automatically, but the user can customize it deleting updates that are not necessary or sticking the important ones to the top of the page. Also, among the RebelMouse tools there is a bookmarklet to share any content that has been found by the user on the Web.
The RebelMouse platform also works on the mobile application for iOS. This allows people and businesses who have huge volumes of personal followings to choose a convenient way to make their fans reach all of their recent updates. RebelMouse app allows you all the features while on the go from anywhere.

Because of the lack of internal staff we wanted to take a look at potential outsource partners. I read reviews on different platforms and interviewed many different companies. I went into detail regarding the project with many on them but ultimately chose QArea.

In the beginning, we provided QArea with basic wireframes, design concepts, and intent. Then they started with a full-stack Drupal development process, but it was customized and changes were made over time.
