Our client was operating an online social networking service wherein single equine and countryside enthusiasts could meet and interact with each other. They wanted to revamp the website to provide better and more interactive features to their members. New features such as audio/video chat, a subscription model for members, a directory listing etc were required. Based on these requirements Icreon customized the Joomla! open source CMS in developing the revamped website. With the successful delivery of the solution Icreon has provided the client with an improved website enabling them to increase their member base.

Recommendations

Outsourcing web development efforts can yield drastically different results depending on who you partner with. In the end, success depends on so many factors far beyond code development itself - strong project management skills, the ability to balance a strategic vision and end user needs with technical realities, discipline in execution, steady productivity, honesty, and a positive attitude in dealing with unexpected challenges and changes to name a few. I've found that those who can consistently deliver on these key attributes are rare.
