Users have different interests and ways of using websites. To best engage with them we developed a coherent and simple site-wide structure and language.
Despite the site’s many features and levels, we were able to make 90% accessible through two simple collapsible menus which also serve as signposts.
While still offering multiple routes and choice paths on the page itself, so users can navigate the site in their own way.
This creates a better use flow, greater engagement, and, as visitors stick around longer, more opportunities to nudge them towards becoming paying customers.
Custom-built platforms offer many opportunities to simplify and speed up procedures. Our content management ecosystem gave our client:
that puts what they need front and center while not cluttering their view with unnecessary and unused features.
(e.g. articles, results, and game videos) that automatically format content so they need not worry about layout.
so absent-minded employees don’t accidentally break the platform.
More is not better when the things that's growing is the time spent on administration. That’s why every time we added a new feature we also developed new ways for information to flow across them.
Just like on the front end, clubs, leagues and regions form the linchpins that tie all other content together. All three can be managed from the dashboard with changes automatically updating across the site.
As scheduled games come into the present they are automatically transformed into results. The client only needs to provide the scores.
Game streams can be planned for specific times, at which point the platform makes them available to viewers.
Client-provided league game results flows across to the correct league table and automatically update it as well.
Data gets sorted based on how it’s consulted. For example, scheduled games and results can be viewed based on country, league or participating club.
A business is only as good as its income stream. To help our client boost theirs, we:
thereby lowering the threshold to purchase.
by integrating the highly-respected Stripe payment system.
by making sure the system satisfies legal requirements of a broad range of international markets.
Of course, all these features are only worthwhile if they meet our client’s needs. That’s why, besides being in regular communication with them, we:
As the project grows a client's vision often does as well. We made sure we always left enough space and flexibility to accommodate this.
Nor did only the client's vision evolve. As we engaged with the project, our own growing insight also revealed many unrealized opportunities. Whenever that happened, we always made sure to offer and implement these.
One thing that didn't change and we didn't lose sight of was that ultimately, the application belongs to the client and that the true measure of its success was their satisfaction .
Our client was so happy with what we built that upon completion, they immediately decided to continue with the project by:
They Earmarked additional funds for a second phase so we can add yet more functionality to the roller hockey website.
After the success of this first phase, their vision has grown from one sport site into many, with these other sites built by us along the same lines.
They have pushed us as their personal developers of choice in the other projects that they are a part of.
