The expertise that NewRedo brought to us provided answers while allowing our in house team to stay on trackLinda Broughton
NewRedo partnered with Contribly.com, a prominent SaaS vendor in the online community management space, to address performance issues within their platform's back-office functionality. As a provider of interactive and engaging online community solutions, Contribly.com sought to optimise their platform's performance to enhance user experiences and facilitate seamless interactions.
NewRedo was tasked with investigating and recommending possible solutions to these performance problems, ensuring the platform's back-office functionality operated smoothly and efficiently, ultimately benefiting Contribly.com's website publishers and their user communities.
NewRedo addressed several technical challenges throughout the project. Contribly.com's platform featured a modular architecture, requiring meticulous identification of performance bottlenecks within specific components. Moreover, the platform was built using Scala, a robust programming language known for its scalability and functional programming capabilities but needing a more specialist engineer skill set.
The main challenge was to understand features that needed attention without compromising the platform's overall excellent performance. Additionally, the platform served numerous customers who heavily utilised the system, resulting in large volumes of operational data that would need to be maintained and handled appropriately.
To address the performance issues in Contribly.com's back-office functionality, NewRedo executed a detailed investigation within the codebase, meticulously identifying bottlenecks and areas of improvement. The team conducted thorough code profiling to gain insights into the platform's performance characteristics.
Additionally, NewRedo documented the existing code structure and dependency graph to understand the platform's architecture comprehensively. Leveraging this analysis, NewRedo compiled an in-depth report containing recommendations and insights that fed into Contribly.com's product roadmap and financial plan. This report served as a clear way forward for the development team, guiding them towards optimal solutions to enhance the back-office functionality.
The collaboration between NewRedo and Contribly.com yielded significant insights and options for the developments and Contribly leadership team. By addressing the performance problems within the platform's back-office functionality, Contribly.com could make a plan to streamline operations.
NewRedo's collaboration enabled Contribly.com to strengthen its position as a leading provider of online community management solutions, enhancing customer satisfaction and engagement.
