As IDEO's web development partner, we routinely consult on methods and technologies that can improve workflow and make it easier for them to communicate with clients, partners and a global audience, while ensuring user experience remains optimal. We collaborate on problem-solving with the IDEO team, identify the best solutions, and then execute those solutions and maintain them over time.
ProPublica is an internet based, non-profit source of investigative journalism. Solspace has an ongoing role in the evolution of ProPublica's site: building out new content sections under tight deadlines, creating frameworks for the presentation of ongoing stories, expanding the site's reach to mobile devices, and integrating site functions with a variety of external systems via API including ChartBeat, Factiva and DocumentCloud.
Don’t let it give you any ideas, but in about 90 days Solspace built and launched a new website for developer.nokia.com. This was an unusually compressed timeline. But through an extraordinary team effort on all sides, we launched on time and on budget. We used ExpressionEngine and wrote many custom add-ons to integrate with about 5 separate back-end API’s for various functions.
Solspace’s work with BSR on this project included concept, strategy, design and build of a solution that would integrate Salesforce business processes with those on the EE side. We developed an EE module that successfully bridged the two systems, providing a conduit through which business logic, content and entity relationships could be kept in sync.
Solspace is a team of 15 web professionals. We serve medium to large sized companies. Size is not what we care about though. We care about fit. Our culture will fit with yours if you value time above money. Our culture will fit with yours if your kids come first, yet your idea of putting them first is to set a good example through hard work and attention to excellence in your career. You will find our work style compatible with yours if you value clear communication, good planning, authenticity, transparency, and high intelligence mixed with humor and lightness.
We specialize in building websites and web applications on top of content management systems such as ExpressionEngine and Craft CMS. We are known for being able to extend and customize these systems so that they meet a wide variety of business needs as well as scale well for large traffic volume. We have built more than 30 plugins for various CMS's over the years and we continue to sell many of them in our store. This work represents our ability to build and ship production level applications for a global audience.
We establish and maintain long term relationships with all of our clients. These long term business friendships are where we derive much of the enjoyment of our work. As a long term partner, when we develop a solution for you, we develop it with the future in mind. As we maintain web properties with you, we can help you optimize and scale. We can help you grow features based on user feedback. We can help you deal with bugs and problems in a timely and sustainable manner.
We have found over the years that one of the most valuable and at the same time fun skills to master is API integration. We work extensively with e-commerce API's as well as API's for other popular web services such as Salesforce, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, etc. We normally build up these API integrations inside an existing website or web application. As well, we frequently work with proprietary API's internal to a given client's organization. Our adaptability in this area is our strength.
We specialize in several areas of web development. First, we are well known for our excellence and depth of experience in the ExpressionEngine CMS. We sell add-on software for EE but we also build extremely complex web systems with it and we have for many years. Additionally, we regularly work with the PHP framework Laravel to handle complicated web application development. We also use Craft CMS. We build for mobile experiences. We work with Node JS as well as AngularJS. We also specialize in API integrations, most notably of which is our extensive work with Salesforce.
Working with Solspace is an essential part of our day-to-day operations at IDEO. With them as partners, we are able to achieve both beautiful and functional design, seamlessly.
After having our initial attempt to launch a rebuilt developer site fail, we called Solspace with the hope they could get us back on track. 90 days later we launched our site and dramatically reduced our operating costs. The Solspace team was efficient, adaptable, and dealt with an unrealistic deadline with supreme professionalism. Next time I'm calling Solspace first and saving myself some sleepless nights!
