the challenge

The ABC Family of Walt Disney set out to migrate a newly acquired site, idealbite.com, from an Expression Engine CMS to Drupal. The site’s basic feature was to provide daily health tips directed towards women in the 25 to 55 age group. The site needed to incorporate a sophisticated Registration and User Profile module to ensure the highest level of user interaction.

the solution

The final project included a complete site design as well as a third party integration of an email newsletter system.  As for the data migration, once it was scrubbed and ported over to Drupal, getting the data to display in the Drupal format was straightforward.

the results

Through a well-tested Change Order process, in addition to a thorough Architecture and Planning foundation, Achieve was able to add twice the functionality by only adding one week to the project timeline.

achieved

Migrated all current content and user data from the old site and incorporated it into a new user-friendly site that encouraged user interaction; this was all accomplished by a firm client driven deadline.

the challenge

Penton Media, Inc. is a 125-year-old business-to-business (b2b) media company that produces digital and print publications, and industry experts with the information they need to make decisions. Penton has deep and long-running experience in over a dozen industries with an online reach of over 90 million unique visitors a year. 
 
One of Penton’s recent digital initiatives involved creating a Drupal-based comparison engine for eventual use on many different web properties. The engine allows site visitors to select items for comparison, then sort and filter them based on a variety of attributes.  Penton’s comparison needs are more diverse then most, and their goal is to use the same engine to power up to 150 different web sites that compare a wide array of products and services.

the solution

In building the engine, Achieve created several modules, taking care not to hard-code logic related to the types of items the engine compares. Instead, configurations for what types of items to compare, which data point attributes to use, how many attributes to display in the initial comparison, and many other options, including configurable email notifications and messaging on the site, all happen via web-based administration. This makes the engine more flexible, and it enables non-technical administrators to quickly deploy a comparison site.

the results

The engine is a piece of technology that allows Penton to execute the core of their business—adding value to business to business transactions by effectively managing and sharing information and making it accessible to end users.

achieved

Delivered a cutting edge comparison engine to add valuable information to each of Penton’s digital properties to better inform their clients and customers that enables them to make better business decisions.

the challenge

The affiliate marketing group of Univision Communications Inc. came to Achieve Internet with a capacity issue  Tasked with promoting subscriptions in the Latino market for their cable provider client, the affiliate marketing group focuses on monthly newsletters and multi-channel giveaways.

the solution

Achieve built a mini website that displays the promotion, ensures that the rules are read and understood, collects basic and detailed demographic information and finally provides an interface to dissect and extract the valuable data collected.

the results

Since the project's inception participation in the Univision promotions has increased 500% and readership of the newsletter has doubled.

achieved

Increased participation in Univision promotions and newsletter engagement by disseminating demographic information to ensure the desired content is sent to the proper audience.

the challenge

The Game Show Network (www.gsn.com) debuted the season premier of its seventh season of the television show High Stakes Poker on Saturday, February 26 2011.  Achieve Internet was proud to have participated in the premier by developing a brand-new website to support the show. Game Show Network worked with a creative agency to design the site, and Achieve Internet implemented it. Some might call 5 days from comps to website an implementation. We called it a Bull Run!

the solution

This is the first Game Show Network TV show website to be built in Drupal.  In addition to standard functionality, the site includes custom integration with a third-party system for playing and featuring Flash video.

the results

The High Stakes Poker site is optimized so that when there are spikes in traffic, the site will handle the load gracefully, through the use of several complex caching techniques that are proven to improve performance.

achieved

Launched a fully functional site in an exceptionally tight timeframe that incorporates full TV episodes of Flash video, social networking capabilities, a blog feed and player biographies.

the challenge

Worldwide media company Advanstar Communications runs the world’s two largest fashion shows every year.  Advanstar teamed up with Achieve in July of 2011 to launch a highly data-driven Drupal-based website , in time to support the company’s annual fashion industry trade show in August 2011.  The administrators and talented content authors of Advanstar’s fashion division Magic who were responsible for the MAGIC site, all had deep print backgrounds but significantly less online experience.   The administrators were having trouble populating their old website quick enough to keep up with the constantly fluctuating fashion landscape.

the solution

To overcome this challenge, Achieve felt it was important to architect the MAGIC site so that almost all of it, including block content, was managed at the node level. This allowed the administrators to focus on the final look of each section and not concern themselves with the workings of Drupal’s block system. 

the results

Achieve delivered the MAGIC site before the launch of the fashion show without having to sacrifice performance and functionality.  The site now handles copious amounts of content that is updated almost daily, and is done so with ease by the administrators of the site, which saves time and allows administrators to focus on other pertinent strategic tasks.  

achieved

Developed an easy to use website for prospective fashion distributors, wholesalers, and customers as well as for the content authors, that functionally delivers great content with a high level of performance.

the challenge

Fast Company, the world’s leading progressive business media brand, needed to create a business community site for its editors that automated workflow, gave superior access to control interactive media, and enabled the company to release content to its audience with the least amount of lag-time possible.

the solution

Created a cutting-edge customized workflow, with enhanced functionality, for the editors at Fast Company. Provided the editors advanced RSS, search, suggestion, community building, and publishing options.

the results

Facilitated members’ ability to search for common interests, keep track of all contributed content as well as the ability to interact with contributions of other users and editorial staff.  The advanced search functions that Achieve developed gave users their desired results in 2 – 3 seconds, which are comparable to top sites such as, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

achieved

Developed a next-generation online business community and subsequently expanded the tool kit of today's business professional, by giving them a variety of powerful Web 2.0 applications. Additionally, allowed the editors at Fast Company to leverage the best of interactive media and provide content to a large global audience.

the challenge

NBC Universal is a leader in the entertainment world with hundreds of online properties that require constant attention.  NBCU’s Telemundu division reached out to Achieve for help migrating their HolaMun2.com property over to a Drupal management system.  HolaMun2.com is an English language site focused on Latino Pop Culture and directed towards the 13 to 18 year old demographic.  Telemundo and NBCU wanted this site to have community engagement capabilities, advanced user permission settings, and sophisticated photo gallery functionality.

the solution

In order for Achieve to accomplish the photo gallery functionality the development team first had to tackle a number of other core Drupal modules that are complementary to the Photo Gallery module.  User Experience for any site is of paramount focus for Achieve and this site was no different, especially given the highly elegant end result that Telemundu and NBCU desired.

the results

By leveraging our expertise in core and contributed Drupal modules Achieve created a truly engaging site that increased performance and overall user experience.

achieved

Delivered a fully functionality website with search capabilities, social networking tools, and an engaging photo gallery tool that allows commenting and sharing for authorized users.

the challenge

Achieve was asked by Viacom, the parent company of Paramount Pictures and MTV, to join both Paramount and MTV on two separate projects. The goal of the projects was to provide Drupal Architecture and Engineering services, and assess the viability of the two projects the companies were currently working on.

the solution

Achieve Internet completed a thorough analysis of the current code base and the project roadmap.  We delivered an extensive analysis suggesting refinements and enhancements to the Drupal Architecture.

the results

Ultimately, Viacom moved forward with The Paramount project because Achieve was able to implement stringent best practice standards that their internal developers could follow in an effort to optimize the site.  The MTV project needed a much more monumental overhaul and was subsequently shut down due to Viacom’s inelastic budget constraints.

achieved

MTV and Paramount were given much needed software development support on run away projects, which ended up saving both companies considerable time and money. Achieve’s guidance helped to refocus the development teams and provided realistic and attainable goals that underscored each company’s value proposition to their target markets.

the challenge

The Latin Recording Academy approached Achieve with the hope of updating their current platform prior to the 14th Annual Latin GRAMMYs event on November 21st 2013.  The goal was to enhance the User Experience (UX) of the new platform to better reflect their American counterpart, The GRAMMYs.  The major challenge that needed to be addressed was including multi-lingual support to the new platform.

the solution

Achieve was able to leverage the pre-existing GRAMMY.com website and enhance it to include multi-lingual support. To migrate the massive amount of pre-existing content Achieve had to write custom migration scripts to update the codebase to allow for multi-lingual support on the new platform.  This allowed the development team to leverage the multi-lingual support on a site wide basis.

the results

The Latin Recording Academy now has a significantly more stable foundation with which to build upon.  By updating the UX of the Latin GRAMMY website The Recording Academy is able to achieve better product alignment and brand consistency, while appealing to a broader international audience. 

achieved

Enhanced the overall User Experience by migrating the LatinGRAMMY website to the new platform, increasing user engagement and expanding LatinGRAMMYs marketability, while broadening its reach to a global audience. 

the challenge

Amerigroup contacted Achieve to help support the launching and hosting of a new corporate website built on Drupal, and the project proved to be a great challenge to Achieve for a number of reasons.    

Achieve had to utilize all of its expertise in Drupal development to deliver a project that allowed Amerigroup to launch their digital property with confidence,  confidence that the site would perform up to Amerigroup’s standards and maintain regulatory compliance with HIPAA, HITECH and Sarbanes-Oxley.

the solution

Achieve developed a system where authorized content authors could make updates to the website and put those updates through an internal review process, subsequently deploying content updates to the live production environment once approved.  Achieve delivered a hosting environment that was easily extensible to accommodate the future growth of Amerigroup’s systems.  Behind these servers, our developers configured a MySQL cluster to handle all of the data storage needs of the sites.

the results

Achieve Internet provided Amerigroup with a robust, flexible, and extensible infrastructure for handling both its immediate and near-future hosting needs.  Additionally, our all star development team provided systems that allow Amerigroup to comply with the need to manage content deployment and provide a solid audit trail of changes made to the system, while adhering to all regulatory practices and standards.

achieved

Achieve provided an elegant solution to the myriad of compliance and regulatory challenges facing Amerigroup’s digital infrastructure.   Achieve built an online property that was compliant in all facets from the servers, to the administrators, and that was delivered as an intuitive interface for the end-user.

the challenge

Guardion Health Sciences, a company focused on addressing the escalating demand for solutions to improve life-diminishing health problems facing the aging Baby Boomer generation, approached Achieve to develop an e-Commerce solution for its online billing system.  With over 90,000 hours of Drupal development experience Guardion had confidence that Achieve was the premier Drupal partner for its enterprise billing solution. 

Guardion needed to convert its recurring billing function from their existing Ubercart system that leveraged the Authorize.net payment gateway to a Customer Information Management (CIM) based billing solution.  Achieve had to create a software solution that gave Guardion better control over its billing process.

the solution

In order to accomplish the desired functionality Achieve had to contribute new modules that allowed for the proper CIM integration.  Achieve also added new administrative interfaces to facilitate the ability to better manage all billing processes from the back-end.

the results

Achieve was able to provide Guardion increased control over its billing process.  This responsive ability was done smoothly and created a seamless transition for existing customers.  Guardion saw this as a key blocker to its success and Achieve was able to successfully navigate this challenge to help promote continued growth.

achieved

Converted the existing billing system and enhanced the platform to provide increased control to site administrators, thereby creating a more responsive and agile billing solution, and improving the billing process for new and existing customers.

the challenge

Dexcom Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM) is a medical device company that develops, manufactures and distributes continuous glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management.  Dexcom wanted to accomplish a unique online store for patient re-orders, but could not afford to scrap their valuable current client data locked within their existing internal Oracle system, which was HIPPA compliant.

the solution

By utilizing Drupal web services Achieve was able to create a HIPAA compliant site while also establishing a secure method of access to critical client data.  Through an array of custom built modules Achieve was able to keep all the client data, but the one bit of requested information, locked in Dexcom’s Oracle system behind a firewall at all times.

the results

By leveraging Drupal’s extensible framework, a vast array of contributed modules and in some cases automating the workflow, Achieve was able to help Dexcom reduce their overall cost of sales (COS) and increase sales exponentially.  All of this was accomplished by adapting to the current client data in Dexcom’s Oracle system, which helps minimize disruption to existing IT infrastructure.

achieved

The Dexcom site now provides a great User Experience by giving patients access to their insurance records, and their diabetes devices in one place so that diabetes patients are able to get their necessary glucose monitoring devices in a timely fashion with ease, in a HIPPA compliant fashion.

the challenge

DivX, LLC, a subsidiary of Rovi Corporation, helps consumers enjoy a high-quality video experience on any device or platform, and because of this, the company needs its website operating at peak performance at all times in order to connect the consumer with the solutions that the company sells.

When DivX approached Achieve it had a website structure and code base that had been edited and altered by a number of different freelance developers.  Unfortunately, the site would not operate as it was supposed to and DivX did not have a dependable internal development team to solve the issue.  The company asked Achieve to come in and clean up the current state of the code base, resolve problems with the localization matrix, and implement Drupal best-practices to optimize the performance of the site.

the solution

These kinds of projects are not foreign to Achieve.  We have compiled the smartest developers into one shop and they revel in solving the most complex issues.  Achieve is routinely sought after to fix projects that are too complicated for other development firms.  By utilizing our expertise and experience we were able to harness the globalization and localization functionality of Drupal in order to resolve the issues DivX was having.  A necessary localization module integration was needed for the site to render the correct data and operate at its peak performance.

the results

DivX’s software is its lifeblood, and its source of revenue, the software lives on their website which makes the need for an optimized digital property that much more critical.  With the support of Achieve DivX was able to launch a re-vamped site that enhanced the consumer experience and ran at its peak.  This was important to DivX due because an optimized digital property that is running at its peak results in higher conversion rates -- in DivX’s case -- more product downloads, which would increase revenue.

achieved

Achieve standardized all of the code on the DivX site and re-organized and re-modeled the localization matrix following strict best practice guidelines to deliver a more functional and optimized website.

the challenge

Drupal.org bustles with activity, and since it’s the face Drupal presents to the world, speed, capacity, cutting-edge look-and-feel, and impressive functionality are all important. Drupal.org decided to upgrade their site in early 2010 and turned to Achieve to help with a key component of the site, the Apache Solr Search mechanism.  Drupal.org needed a search function with more expansive options and filters then on their previous site.

the solution

Drupal.org depended on the Achieve Internet team, which had completed several successful enterprise Solr integrations, to lead the development and configuration of the search infrastructure for the new web site. By integrating the Lucene Java search library to store data, Solr provides fast, efficient, and highly customizable search solutions for Drupal-based Web sites.

the results

For Drupal.org the search box in the top right allows users to perform a Solr search by Modules, Themes, Documentation, or Forums & Issues.  Through Apache Solr integration, administrators can now gain control over which results are returned and how they are displayed.

achieved

By implementing Apache Solr Search, Drupal.org now has a much more extensive and greater functioning search mechanism.  This has proven to be a great benefit to the Drupal community by giving more access to more modules to developers worldwide.

the challenge

Achieve has a rich history of collaboration with RightScale. The company provides efficient configuration, monitoring, automation, and governance of cloud computing infrastructure.  So when RightScale needed two new digital properties they turned to Achieve for help.  For the first project, RightScale required assistance with the migration of content from a previous site to a new multilingual site with languages in Japanese and Korean.  The second site that Achieve developed for RightScale was a Conference Organizing Distribution (C.O.D.) site site which is used for building conferences and event sites online and is a way to increase revenue focused around the many online and offline conferences that RightScale hosts. 

For each project, RightScale had Achieve focus heavily on User Experience, specifically on the back-end of the platform to facilitate administrative workflow.

the solution

In both instances Achieve created custom modules that simplified the process of updating content to the sites.  Achieve was able to create a custom module, The Translation Management Dashboard, which established an easy-to-use interface for translators.  For the second project Achieve had to focus on both the unique agenda display, which strayed from core Drupal components, and workflow facilitation.

the results

The Translation Management Dashboard was able to streamline the process of converting content in English to the desired, Japanese or Korean languages for the new site. 

For the C.O.D. site, Achieve created a module that replicated the unique agenda display that RightScale desired.

achieved

In both instances, Achieve streamlined the workflow for content editors by creating custom back-end interfaces that increased efficiency, which ultimately saved time, resources and money for RightScale.

the challenge

Digium is a computer telephony company that develops and supports Asterisk, a widely used open-source software platform. Digium has thousands of customers, including the US Army, Google, and the University of Pennsylvania. In late 2010 Digium needed to upgrade the portion of their site that sold their newly acquired hardware segment, Switchvox. Digium required the ability to display numerous product descriptions, videos, enable multiple content editors, multilingual capabilities, and a sophisticated Solr search function. Digium had an extensive list of priorities and desired functionality that required an advanced knowledge and depth of experience with Drupal so they turned to Achieve for help.

the solution

Achieve excels at high level consultation and we really love the ability to plan a project from scratch and work closely with the business and management teams of our clients to ensure their objectives are not only going to be met but exceeded.

First, Achieve helped Digium implement a server architecture that was appropriate for the site, which included Varnish and Solr servers for effective page caching.

Digium offers a good deal of video support, some of which is stored on local servers and some of which is on Youtube.  In order to keep all the content in an organized easy to read user interface, Achieve leveraged the power of Panels.

Additionally, Achieve implemented the Solr Search function on Digium’s site in order to give users  fully faceted search ability. Users are now able to search and sort through all of Digium and Switchvox’s products, services and support documents.

the results

Achieve was not only able to offer post deployment support, but they developed a site that incorporated all the product information, videos and search functionality that Digium desired on time, under budget with a fully transparent client experience.

achieved

Achieve Internet combined its Drupal consultation expertise with architecture experience, deep server knowledge, thorough training and documentation skills, and solid project management to deliver an effective and comprehensive web solution for Digium.

the challenge

APQC (American Productivity & Quality Center) is a member-based nonprofit best practices organization that provides information and research on benchmarking, knowledge management, measurement, and process improvement to its approximately 40,000 members.  APQC launched a new Drupal website in 2009 and selected Achieve to lead the development process.  The major tasks handled by Achieve were to; migrate APQC’s content from the existing Interwoven Content Management System (CMS), perform the necessary Drupal configurations and customizations, address the various integration points, and tune for performance and scalability.  

the solution

APQC’s focus has always been on fostering user communities and making content easy to work with and find.  APQC needed to empower users to access discipline-specific articles, forums, and blogs on their vast content network. Not only do they have articles available for download and/or available on hard copy they also have Subject Matter Experts (SME) that maintain content focused blogs. Their content ecosystem is massive and Achieve helped to make it more manageable and more easily navigated by end users.

the results

APQC’s new site makes managing their large content libraries a breeze. Users can now search, sort, filter, and un-filter all the content stored within APQC’s vast database of information.

achieved

Achieve helped to make APQC’s massive content ecosystem more digestible to the end user.

the challenge

Hunter Industries is a worldwide distributor of residential and commercial irrigation systems with a global reach of over 80 countries and over 30,000 product SKUs.  The goal was to incorporate all the product information in one easy to use location with the capacity to be translated in up to 24 different languages.

the solution

Achieve created an architecture and management system, by utilizing a customized Apache Solr search module, of an incredible amount of information in a way that does not overwhelm the end-user.  Achieve also utilized the Globalization ability of Drupal by creating the Media Translation module to allow Hunter to group together related media files into a “translation set,” and then automatically show the correct file for that language site.

the results

A 3 month Google Analytics review of the old site, 2011, to the new site, 2012, proved that Hunter’s initial goals were meet and they saw 103% increase in visits, 93% increase in unique visitors, 160% increase in page views, and a 34% decrease in bounce rate.  This was all accomplished on a site that now has 8,550 new pages, 4,743 images and documents, and 487 documents for download, in 7 different languages.

achieved

Focused scope of information to eliminate decision paralysis among clients when purchasing Hunter Products at commercial retail stores.

the challenge

Annex Brands, Inc., based in San Diego, California, is a franchisor of over 360 retail and commercial shipping and business service centers located across the U.S. and Canada.  Annex came to Achieve due to our reputation as enterprise Drupal experts and our location in San Diego.  Annex wanted a web development firm that would walk them through the project with a hands-on approach and instill confidence in their re-designed digital properties.

the solution

Achieve was able to use its extensive experience and expertise to take on and complete all the various tasks that Annex requested such as; performance optimization architecture and planning, development, and increasing user.  We went through the code with a fine toothcomb cleaning up the code base, removing errors and improving usability and performance.

the results

Achieve implemented web development best-practices into the Annex site so that moving forward the company would have fewer limitations and increased opportunity to grow its business given the challenges Achieve helped to resolve.  These best practices made it easier for administrators with little technical knowledge to maintain an operational state of the site.

achieved

Improved site performance leveraging web development best-practices to increase the lifespan of the site as well as improve functionality and user experience.

the challenge

As a leader in the consumer and business credit reporting industry, Experian collects credit data on over 3 million U.S businesses annually. The company is revolutionizing the way businesses interact with clients and customers based on their credit score.  Experian wanted the ability to develop new digital properties at a more rapid pace, properties that interacted with their internal systems and databases. Unfortunately the company lacked the expertise to solve this challenge so they came to Achieve for help.   

Experian wanted to create a customer environment where the user could update various pieces of their personal information and history, to better reflect their credit report.  The second site Experian wanted was an interactive interface for businesses that would allow companies to track the credit worthiness of customers, and highlight potential risks associated with each account.

the solution

Achieve developed three sites to reach consumers and provide them the ability to change incorrect information to better help manage their credit scores.  Through a series of communications and interactions between servers and users, the system would authenticate the user and give them the opportunity to update their personal information.

the results

These new web properties gave Experian the ability to productize a business application,  that provided meaningful and beneficial insight into potential client behavior that gave businesses greater confidence when making decisions.

achieved

Delivered a seamless integration of existing internal systems with new cutting-edge digital properties that further enhanced Experian’s value proposition to its customers.

the challenge

Bella Picture’s wanted to undertake a complete digital property overhaul and they targeted their smaller site StudioBlue as their model for future sites.  They needed to implement a number of key components including Ubercart, user registration, and payment scheduling, yet they lacked the depth of Drupal knowledge needed to successfully complete the task.

the solution

Achieve was able to develop a fully functional site with easy to use payment options and scheduling features by integrating Ubercart. Achieve streamlined the registration process and allowed the visitor to interact with the true power of Bella without the stress of commitment.  Achieve also wrote a custom module to handle this complex ordering process between Drupal, Ubercart and the Authorize.net system to allow users to set up a payment plan online.

the results

Achieve created a site for Bella that organized all their desired information into an easy to use architecture, which can be leveraged by Bella’s development team for future branded websites within Bella’s portfolio.

achieved

Removed the guesswork and hassle of in picking and paying for a wedding photographer by integrating Ubercart and creating a unique buying experience.

the challenge

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions.  They came to Achieve to address pressing security, and site usability issues on their Institute for a Competitive Workforce (ICW) platform.

the solution

Achieve internet has over 90,000 hours of open source development and training. Many of those hours go towards understanding all of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) standards and bringing all of our practices up to meet the necessary requirements. This was important because Achieve had to analyze The Chamber’s code that was over two years old and bring it up to the OWASP standards.

the results

Once Achieve was finished with The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s new digital property they had a much more secure way of interacting and engaging their customers.

achieved

Developed a secure and engaging site by updating all pertinent code to industry best standards and implementing all relevant social media and user interaction functionality.

the challenge

Bella Pictures is an award winning wedding photography studio and their site allows couples to select, schedule, and pay for wedding photographers online. They came to Achieve because they wanted their Drupal web site technology stack to perform customer-facing eCommerce tasks while also communicating effectively with Salesforce.com on the back end. They needed to reduce the redundant steps their sales staff had to go through to migrate pertinent customer data from their Drupal CMS to their Salesforce.com platform.

the solution

Achieve recommended a Salesforce Integration solution, customizing Drupal to automatically propagate orders and updates in Salesforce.

the results

The Salesforce Integration automated the data migration process with a seamless communication between the two platforms. Achieve also tied into the preexisting workflows that Bella had already configured in Salesforce - doubling the effectiveness of both the sales staff and the Salesforce platform.

achieved

Increased utilization rates of sales staff by eliminating redundant step of manually re-populating Salesforce.com with all website sales information.

the challenge

Zinch (a Chegg service) is an online social network that enables over 2.5 million students to demonstrate to colleges, and universities, that they are more than just a GPA.  Zinch launched their website in early 2007 and had over 300,000 student profiles and 450 active colleges and universities within a year. When Zinch brought Achieve into the project, there were over 350 software issues, and emerging concerns about performance as the number of users grew.

the solution

Within the first two months of the engagement, Achieve engineered solutions for the top 50 issues associated with a variety of software challenges. Additionally, Achieve created effective processes for a geographically distributed development team, and solved Drupal performance and scalability issues.

the results

Achieve used their experience and depth of Drupal knowledge to enhance the Zinch site. Achieve solved a number of performance issues that are common among new sites that bring on new members at an unexpected rate.

achieved

Constructed a focused path that positioned Zinch to capitalize on their expanding audience by solving the key software issues and establishing and training a development team to work effectively in addressing the site’s growing demands.
