BrandSync - a Django development of a cloud-based application

BrandSync is a cloud-based, PIM (Product Information Management) solution dedicated to both e-commerce and brick and mortar industries -  retailers and producers that covers three major problematic aspects of distribution: gathering and processing products’ data, standardisation and unification of data for all of supply chain participants, and further data circulation (both internal and external).&nbsp

;

The solution was a dedicated application that enables users to input to the database a precise description of their products. Combined with a great number of products in the base, it allows for a very expanded data exchange between the subjects within the supply chain. 

One of the major challenges was to combine simplicity with flexibility and create as user-friendly tools as possible. The final product has a clear, intuitive interface with custom-made designs that provides the variety of functionalities and makes the high volume data management easy and effective. 

Our technology stack of choice was: Angular, Django (the Python framework), and PostgreSQL. The whole app is hosted on AWS. Additional services and tools we’ve used include: RabbitMQ and Celery, Redis and Elastic. For CI/CD (Continuous Development/Continuous Integration) purposes, we’ve used Docker and Jenkins.

Happy Scribe - a high-end dynamic SaaS platform

Happy Scribe is a high-end dynamic SaaS platform for researchers, journalists, podcasters, and media production companies. It uses state-of-the-art machine-learning models to transcribe audio/video files uploaded by users automatically. Happy Scribe is used in a plethora of different industries, whether it be in education all the way through to the entertainment.

We were tasked with,

among other features, the development of a simple and functional player for video or audio. Apart from simply playing the material, users can also control it by clicking on text to jump to the specific point in audio or video simultaneously. 
  
The next thing we were responsible for was making the transcribed text as clear for users as possible. That’s why we introduce speaker Identification, which allows users to set the identification to differentiate between speakers.

Another problem we needed to tackle was how to help users to easily navigate the text when playing the transcribed file. We achieved that by adding the function of highlighting the text (similar to karaoke), which is synchronized with the spoken word. In addition to that, we introduced comments, which also are based on highlighting particular parts of the text.

One of the most interesting features we implemented was also a confidence Heatmap, which defines the value in the audio/video file transcribed into text.

RMS - a Django-based Recital Management system built for The Juilliard School

We supported The Juilliard School in building and launching an advanced Recital Management System (RMS), which helps students and school staff organize recitals. Our role involved backend (Django) and front-end coding. In the beginning, front-end was based on the Metronic theme, but later during the project, we created new designs of RMS and implemented it into the application. Our work in the project included integrations

with external services such as Panopto (using SOAP-based integration), which is a system for scheduling recital recordings, integration of Colleague system (REST API), and integration with Performance Event Calendar previously created by us before. We also developed a canvas-based Stage Composer application, which allows students to use front-end tool to create stage setup - either using one of the predefined settings or custom adjusted ones. The final product requires the input of data such as selection of the stage that students wish to perform on, when and what time of day they want to do it, what instrument are they playing and how exactly the scene is supposed to look (for the last option we are creating the HTML5 based Stage Composer).  The system was also equipped with an internal notification system for students and teachers, tool to create dynamic forms and other mechanisms meant to simplify the whole process of preparing a recital.

SportsHi - the React Native mobile application

SportsHi React Native mobile app is a great example of a lifestyle-driven business concept. Founded by an after-hour rugby coach living in New York, the application allows the users (Coaches and Players) to schedule their training sessions and games as well as communicate with each other. This project is also a great example of both the lean approach and agile followed

development.

App founders were managing the project from their New York-based headquarters, while the development took place mainly in Merixstudio’s office in Poznań, Poland. The 6-hours difference was easily overcome by planning weekly meetups during East Coast morning hours. The daily communication was crucial, as the founding team consisted of a CTO (tech lead), who was collaborating with our Frontend, Backend, and Quality Assurance specialists. In addition to that, the UX designer was overseeing the implementation of the design from the office located in the Big Apple.

The whole development process showcased a great advantage of React Native as a multi-platform, JavaScript-based technology, as well as Python/Django as a backend technology. With the development of the Django-fuelled backend running smoothly we were sure that this is the most optimal technology for the projects of such nature. Beyond that, the team worked with of Redux, Web Sockets, and Django REST framework to deliver the application that went live in the summer of 2018.

Vogue Tyre - marketing website for luxury products

For over 103 years Vogue Tyre is providing custom luxury tires for the most discerning customers. Their perfected design and technology create distinctive products with outstanding performance that needed to be promoted on a website that mirrors this attention to detail. 

We were tasked with creating a site that promotes Vogue Tyre's premium products - Tyres, Wheels, and Accessories. With award-winning

animations, premium design, and original style that highlights the value of Vogue Tyre products the bar was set pretty high for us. 

During the project, our software house was responsible for UX/UI, Front-End Development, and QA. Apart from showcasing great craftsmanship through the high-quality animation, the final product was supposed to emphasize the friendly attitude and the longevity of the company. Did we meet all those criteria? Check for yourself on Vogue Tyre's website.

Everclassic

Everclassic is a leading Danish online marketplace for vintage, Scandinavian design including furniture, ceramics, art, and other design objects. It is a large-scale platform including both online auctions and a marketplace. One of the main challenges for Merixstudio was to successfully take over the project from a team from Ukraine making it smooth and downtime-free. The key milestone achieved by Merixstudio was developing an

English version of the website to help our partner thrive on the international market. This was proceeded by completing the unfinished legacy tasks such as rewriting Zend to Phalcon as well as Magento integration and performance optimization. The team composition was flexible and adjustable to the current project’s needs. We kicked off with one back-end developer and PM, then, on peak time scale up to four team members adding a front-end developer and QA specialist. The Client and Merixstudio’s manager shared the responsibility for the project management distributing it between the product-vision and process-coordination parts. Stack: Magento 2, Phalcon, Laravel, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript Full protfolio: http://bit.ly/EverclassicClutch

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Merixstudio provided an exceptional team of designers and programmers, and delivered a flawless launch of the site.  The company has completed several other projects for the client.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Could you please provide a brief overview of your company?

We are a manufacturer, marketer, and seller of dietary supplements.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your original goal or objective for choosing to work with Merixstudio?

I worked with them a long time ago. I wanted to have a modern, functional website that would be robust and customized to our needs. We also operate a complicated ERP system for our company, which meant they needed to be compatible.

Which ERP system do you use?

It’s called Sigma Micro Controller Plus. It’s one of those Unix-based text systems that is quite old. Merixstudio was one of a very few companies that tried to integrate the two systems.

SOLUTION

Was that the main reason you chose to work with Merixstudio?

We love their designers. We use them consistently for our weekly email blasts. They design those for us. We’ve worked with one of their team members for years now, perhaps five or seven. His work is absolutely invaluable to us. He delivers a more European-style design to our content. We enjoy it thoroughly. It’s extremely clean and almost clinical, which we appreciate because we want to be thought of as a company that’s not gimmicky. They also have highly proficient programmers on their team. Those guys do an excellent good job. We had zero problems with their work and their quality control was great, too. I’ve worked with other companies on similar projects. I manage more than one operation here. The issue with so many companies is technical: once the site is launches we would run into a whole gamut of bugs, malfunctions and design flaws. That’s never the case with Merixstudio. A launch never takes place until thorough testing has been performed and they’re confident that the product is ready.

Can you provide a general cost estimate for the project?

The website overall ranged from $20,000 to $50,000. It probably ended closer to $50,000, but initially it was estimated around $20,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How pleased are you with the results?

I’m quite pleased with the website you see currently, but it represents only one project among many that they’ve undertaken with us. It’s hard to choose an example because that website is five years old; it’s dated. The functionality is essentially obsolete. That’s why we’re working on the Magento-based platform right now. At the time it was a phenomenal improvement over our previous website.

Is there anything you found unique or special about Merixstudio compared to other developers that you’ve worked with?

To be honest with you, unique or special – yes. There’s a clear difference between Merixstudio and their counterparts. They would never ask you dumb questions relating to project requirements or specific documentation. They were comprehensive with their research and preparation. Other companies I’ve worked with previously have consistently bombarded me with rather ridiculous questions, like: “how do I connect to your server?” I never experienced that with Merixstudio. The only exceptions were absolutely no fault of their own; for instance, if I forgot to send them a password or username. That’s the distinction. They truly take ownership of the project and care a great deal about the quality of the work they deliver to their client.

Is there anything that you would do differently or that you think they could improve upon?

I would do three things differently in retrospect. For example, considering our current marketing needs, I’d have requested a completely different design for the website. In general, there were a few occasions where they were unable to deliver on time. They work the way that they would prefer and they were definitely honest about it. If they can’t deliver what was promised, they come right out and admit it. It usually has to do with the fact that they haven’t tested the product to the extent that they’d prefer. Even though they probably had it 99 percent complete, they would wait until they finished the testing. Their reasons seem justified, but it’s never a good thing to deliver late to a client. I did appreciate the fact that we were always informed about it. They never kept us in the dark.
