Recmnd.me is an a professional networking web application which helps users provide reviews and recommendations and helps them in social recruiting and career management.
Recmnd Inc. envisioned developing a professional networking web application for reviews and recommendations, social recruiting and career management and it included a heavy search (ideally instant search and auto-complete like Google with an algorithm that determines rankings) and API/widget components (ideally the two sites run off the APIs as well) for smooth user experience.
Proposition & Solution
Xicom designed and developed the two web applications that include extensive use of Facebook and Twitter API's. Our solution included the following features:
- Customer registration and profile using Facebook and Twitter.
- Users were able to search individuals through recmnd.me and businesses through recmnd.us and recommend them accordingly so that they can be ranked using the algorithm implemented in the site.
- API integration to import contacts from LinkedIn and sharing the feedbacks on different platforms by the use of respective APIs.
Results & Benefits
Our solution met the exact requirements of Recmnd and within two months of launch, the site is holding 850+ individuals and 650+ companies where users are using the recommendations extensively and getting the benefit from this feature.
- Rcmnd was able to launch and market the product timely as we as a contractor ensured that the deliverables were provided on time so as to meet all the deadlines.
- Rcmnd worked with us using the DTM Model whereby they hired dedicated resources and had the flexibility to bring change in scope so as to get the final product managed with the changing scenario of online learning platform.
- Faster delivery of new features and higher overall software quality increased the client satisfaction, thereby increasing our revenue and customer retention.
- Rcmnd is extremely satisfied with the deliverables provided on time and within budget.
The solution was developed in ASP.NET (MVC3) / SQL Server as the backend and HTML5/CSS3/Jquery as the front-end. The complete web application was hosted on Windows Azure and database indexing and database/application level caching was done to improve the overall scalability and performance.
