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.
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. Achieve performed a thorough assessment of the current state of code, identified the issue and was able to solve it. 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.
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. Achieve also helped DivX locate, qualify, and train a full-time contractor to assist the company in a more hands-on fashion for the remainder of the project
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.
