AreasCode spotlights the importance of aligning company and technology strategy, we revisit the critical core and how digital nonnatives are using the cloud, low-code, and platform first strategies to juice legacy assets; and we take a deep dive into supply chain transformation.
For human and machine interaction, we look at emerging trends in the future of the workplace, digital experiences, and technology that supports diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Technology leaders in AreasCode play a critical role as strategic partners by designing, developing, and executing tech-enabled solutions to address increasingly complex DEI workforce challenges.
Our strategy principles:
We strongly believe that:
Effective organizations choose their technology platforms and ecosystem partners carefully, aligning their choices and implementation decisions with their strategic goals.
Strategy leads technology: as strategy and technology become increasingly intertwined, strategic intent must inform technology choices. The result: more time and smarter choices that could lead to faster adaptation, bolder strategic choices, and sustainable competitive advantage.
By necessity or choice, people have increasingly embraced digital interactions in all aspects of their everyday lives, whether in working remotely, online schooling, or ordering groceries.
Yet our growing reliance on digital interactions has left many of us pining for more personalized human experiences - AreasCode can deploy it to simplify and accelerate smart strategy development and execution.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE
For what projects/services did your company hire Areas Code?
Our project is a custom HTML mobile first online directory with several features that require significant technical expertise and creative problem solving. All aspects from client management on the business end to communication and project execution with Victor, team lead, was a model of efficiency.
What were your goals for this project?
Build a streamlined product that conforms to modern consumer expectations and performs consistently well.
How did you select Areas Code?
I had successfully completed a 6 month project led by Marta when she was working with Empeek in 2019. When she announced she was launching a boutique agency with highly skilled partners on LinkedIn, I filed it in my rolodex for the next project.
Describe the project in detail.
virtualstorefront.co: The project is a Local Search Engine with significant development and development challenges. The app pins the user to a custom location. The app internally measures the distance after a single query to Google Maps API between the user pin and every business profile in the app data base. It's fast, effective and easy to use.
The Search Engine uses a keyword as filter search that allows for more refined AND searches. Keyword clouds, keyword links and keyword filters are used throughout the product in various ways, all well executed.
Front end layout design was provided, but HTML implementation solutions and mobile first UI that actually works in a web-based app were the domain of the team. They performed this challenging job admirably and were very cooperative in how they handled my direction as a client.
What was the team composition?
Account Manager, Marta. Project Manager, Victor. A development team of minimum 2 developers on front and back working in a scrum, I assume.
RESULTS & FEEDBACK
Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?
It works. It works very well. Customers love their Storefronts. I can access and use the backend (Symfony) very easily.
How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?
Victor was such a seamless interface, I never had to work directly with the actual developers - an impressive feat for Project Management on a fairly technical project.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
Small and powerful. I also like the name AreasCode. It's both quaint and professional. But at the end of the day, it's the people who are impressive. English is outstanding across the board. Translation from discussion to technical execution is outstanding. Timeliness and attention is excellent.
Are there any areas for improvement?
Within reasonable expectations, there is nothing I would change. Improvement for a company working at this level is maintaining this level of service past an early client.
