Proven Track Record
The client, one of the largest financial portals in ru.net, turned to us for a consultation on his outdated Bitrix-based website. It featured slow performance and impossibility of further development. However, a news feed was its greatest bottleneck. Being one of the central parts of the website it critically required improvement and customization.
Given the limited budget, lack of in-house IT skills, and the urgency, the client wanted to find the best solution in terms of cost, time and functionality. He was looking to eliminate the critical issues and make the site maintainable, upgrade and grow it further. Once he got an optimal roadmap for the desired solution, he assigned our team to implement it.
What did UNL do
Our business analyst and designer planned the logic of the solution. They outlined the right structure of the news section that eliminated clutter. We adjusted the positioning of the news blocks, and make it user-friendly. After the client approved the offered UI our team coded the News Feed section from scratch.
We created a separate API for news retrieval and generation using RabbitMQ message broker software for block cashing. News is shown in different places on a web page in a custom way and can be easily updated in blocks and widgets through the administration panel.
