Flexibility as a way to success - working on a constantly developing idea - JLL
Wanted: Ruby on Rails experts
As you probably figured out, since we’re in the real estate industry, they just needed a contractor to build it from the ground up and brick by brick. You know, a developer, if you catch my drift. So, lads, safety helmets on and let’s get to work!
They were looking for a highly skilled dev team, which excels in Ruby on Rails. We worked together before on several smaller projects, so they were completely confident that we’ll be up to the task.
Loads of features to implement
The website was designed to be one of the most comprehensive real estate guides on the market. The amount of information available was almost overwhelming.
You need to know if there’s a decent pizza place next to your future dream home? Let us check. Do you play tennis? We’ll show you where nearby courts are.
There was even the price growth forecast of the estate for the next 5-20 years.
The big idea was complex but it was not final by any stretch. Perhaps that would make the process challenging for some software houses… but definitely not for us.
Something new to add? No problem
The initial idea submitted by the client was pretty basic. As the project moved on, JLL came up with a lot of adjustments, even for the key parts of the platform. It wasn’t the first time someone approached us with an unpolished and still evolving project.
Thanks to our experience in similar projects, we were ready for any changes in the middle of the process. This flexible attitude was invaluable for the success in the end.
How enormous the app turned out to be?
- 111 700 new investments
- 18 detailed areas
- price forecast for 5-20 years ahead
