Subscription-based volunteering platform

Web Development


The client had specific business goals when he approached us. We had to improve the performance of the existing platform. It required us to get rid of the old technology and re-write everything in Ruby on Rails. We had to make sure it’s responsive and mobile-friendly, which, as a result, had to boost subscription rates. Set goals required a deep analysis of the current situation to identify existing UX/UI problems.

I have been working with Software Brothers for the past two and half years. In addition to our weekly calls and site visits, they’re always on hand for a chat about my project or to resolve any immediate issues. They’re accessible, courteous and committed to making my project a success. I enjoy working with them and they’re good fun too.
