  • Feedback management using single dashboard
  • Easy content publishing across social media platforms

Challenges

Major challenges were involved in the third party integrations as all the platforms have different set of integration guidelines. The process was time consuming and directly impacting sprint planning and delivery deadlines.

Difficulties in ensuring real time communication with onsite team because of unusual time difference, as client's HQ is located in Mountain Time zone while our development team was working from IST time zone, so working hours were changed to have late night or early morning daily stand ups.

Development of event management and scheduling featured tool within the product itself to overcome the limitations of the thirty party event management tools.

Creation of custom HTML ads was challenging part of the ‘In browser ad creator which was successfully executed after consultation with Coditude's Subject Matter Experts. The feature enabled users to create and preview of these ads in various devices and environments.
