Our solution met the exact requirements of Iecon and site quickly gained a large user base within a short period of 4 months. Following were the key benefits that we as a contractor successfully provided to Iecon.
- Iecon was delivered the product on time thus allowing them with appropriate time to market their product.
- Iecon is extremely satisfied with the deliverables provided on time and within budget.
- New features introduced within the system were taken up and Xicom ensured the faster delivery for the same to take the system to the next level. This overall effort from Xicom along with the overall software quality increased the client satisfaction, thereby increasing our revenue and customer retention.
- Iecon is extremely satisfied with the Quality Analysis (QA) efforts provided by Xicom.
The solution was developed in MVC platform using CodeIgniter Framework (PHP/MySQL) on the server side and XHTML/CSS3/Jquery was used on the client side. The application extensively used new technologies, database indexing and database/application level caching for effective site performance.
The scope of work (Large scale website development with extensive administration functionality) given to Xicom was repeat business and follow on from an extensive wireframing project. The team showed excellent attention to detail and made sure all work was thoroughly checked and tested by their Quality team before submission to me for my review. This meant minimal commenting and re-work, which meant a much more pleasant work environment for both client and contractor and ultimately allowed the project to maintain schedule. The development team brought their extensive and broad knowledge of all the latest web development techniques and trends to the project to produce a truly worldclass result that you would expect only to find in the high end web development production houses in the USA or UK. Well done to team at Xicom and they will be getting more repeat business from my company (Iecon) thats for sure.
