Software Engineering Challenge:
A large local agency has an existing contract with Wheel of Fortune to manage their web-based Dot.Net software application which was difficult to update and add new content to. The client needed to restructure the codebase to increase performance and player experience.
Since their team no longer supports Dot.Net and they did not wish to take on the overhead of a full-time employee, they looked outside their organization to solve the problem. Leveraging our resource pool of Guild Members and Associates, within three days we were able to find the right person for the job.
Engaging a legacy Dot.Net platform, our goal was to streamline the codebase so that new puzzles and promotions could be added more efficiently, and the player experience enhanced.
The site had been improved considerably resulting in the ability to easily update puzzles and promotions, and player retention has increased. All parties involved are pleased with the work being done, and more work from our agency client is in the works.
