The challenge

To keep products maintained to a high level, and to keep developing new solutions, our customer decided to extend the capacity of their core engineering team by using an external service provider.

The additional requirements for the potential partner included having strong Javascript and UI experience to augment its own technical expertise.

The solution

Since the start of our cooperation, the team has mainly worked on two products.

The first one is an aftercare warranty solution that provides end users with software and firmware updates. It also includes:

  • access to the support team
  • bug fixes
  • additional user interface options.

With its help, users can maximise system performance, manage the devices, update them and improve functionality.

For this product, our JavaScript engineers have successfully developed the front-end side using the AngularJS framework, which was already used in the core app.

At every stage, our quality assurance engineer monitors the development process to make sure all the functionality works properly.

As the development of some parts of the system requires testing on physical devices, e.g., special commercial TVs or customers’ own media players, such hardware was set up in the ELITEX office so that the team could work efficiently.

The second product is a great video analytics tool, offering access to various statistics including the number and duration of views, etc.

As this product was new and had to be developed from scratch, the decision was made to build it with modern tools:

  • React framework on the front-end side
  • Node.js on the back-end.

The result

Currently the team consists of:

  • JavaScript developers of various levels
  • QA engineer
  • Project manager

The main task of the team is the extension of the customer’s product functionality and supporting the existing apps.

As a result, a complex of Exterity’s solutions became even stronger which allows the company to fulfill the needs of existing customers and engage with new customers around the world.
