ADAMAS is one of the biggest jewelry retail networks in Russia.
At the beginning of 2017 we started a big project focused on making our CMS and ERP faster, more user friendly and much more reliable. We hired SimbirSoft to help us with it.
There were set two major tasks — to give our site a new look that would hit it out of the park and to retain all the advantages of an progressive online store.
SimbirSoft dedicated development center involved a layout designer, three frontend developers, a DevOps engineer, a quality assurance specialist and an account manager.
We started with authorization improvements, updating social networks sharing buttons and ended up with SEO optimization and implementation of a completely new functionality for Personal Account.
The development process was organized as clear as possible. Every day we would call up to discuss progress on tasks. During the day the SimbirSoft team would be in touch in Skype chat and respond to our questions promptly. We also had a common dashboard in a tasktracker, which they kept updated every day. So we could track the current project status at any given point of time.
One of the tricky issues we faced with was managing tags on our website. In order not to post a bunch of scripts from different manufacturers (Yandex Metric, Google analytics, etc.) to the site, we hooked up the Digital Data Manager which transmits statistics to the necessary services by itself.
Another challenge had to do with our decision to take some features into development when the deadline was just around the corner. Here’s when SimbirSoft proved that our needs are their top priority. They strengthened the team and all the planned features were implemented.
The new website was successfully released on June 22, 2018.
What do you like most about the company?
It was really huge amount of work. SimbirSoft has been an important part of this project. Developers team showed a high-grade skills, experience and involving in our project. I've really come to view their team as an extension of our own.
I have to say especially thanks to the management team. We faced a number of tricky issues during our project. And absolutely all of them were successfully solved.
I definitely can recommend SimbirSoft as a reliable and high professional partner for your IT-projects.
What they should improve on?
Well, each company has some areas to improve but I can't think of any in this particular case.
