How did you select this vendor?
We found Stfalcon on the internet after considering numerous other teams. They offered a great technology stack and sufficiently experienced developers. We proposed the idea of using a time and materials contract so we could see the results first. Most importantly, our discussions with the sales manager and interview with the team indicated that we have a common vision for the project.
Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?
Standard admin dashboards have a limited number of functions, so Stfalcon developed a custom version that suits all our needs. We created modules to display in certain parts of the screen and landing pages for discount offers. The flexible dashboard lets our site administrator restructure each page without touching its code.
To create a smart search option, Stfalcon implemented smart caching for requests and added features common to major search engines like transliteration, synonyms search, and translation. Whether a user searches a domain in Russian or English, it generates examples of domain names that best suit their request in both languages.
Stfalcon’s developers used WebSockets to quickly aggregate and display domain data. It conveniently shows users the first results while conducting the rest of the search in the background. The team made it compatible with our API for authentication and orders.
What was the team composition?
Six talented people from Stfalcon worked on our website redesign. Their team included a project manager, three backend developers, a frontend developer, and a QA specialist.
