DivX, LLC, a subsidiary of Rovi Corporation, helps consumers enjoy a high-quality video experience on any device or platform. The company creates, distributes and licenses digital video technologies for today’s media environments. The software that DivX offers is core to the success of the business. They need their website operating at optimal performance in order to connect their consumer with their software.
When DivX approached Achieve, the company had a website structure and code base that had been edited and altered by a number of different freelance developers. DivX requested that Achieve resolve the issues with existing code in order to get them back to a stable state. The complexity of the project came from company’s intricately designed localization matrix. The goal of the localization matrix, for instance, would allow a user in London viewing the site on a Mac to see the price of the Mac software in pounds. Unfortunately, the site would not operate as it was designed to and DivX did not have the in-house expertise to solve the issue on its own. DivX approached Achieve and asked that we come in and clean up the current state of the code, fix the localization matrix and implement Drupal best practices to optimize the site performance and functionality.
