YouinMind needed a platform building that would allow them to get to market as soon as possible, but be flexible enough to handle scale to become a national service.
Collaboration and quick communication were going to be essential to making this project a success and so Think Optimised setup the tools that would enable this. Trello was used for the initial project management so that both companies could see incoming tasks, priorities and where they sat in the workflow. Once the project was live, Trello was replaced by Teamwork for greater control and reporting. Slack was used for communication, incoming notifications (deployments & Trello updates) and document sharing. Slack enables quicker communication in an easier to follow format than email.
The server environment is built with an HA architecture on Digital Ocean, with proactive external monitoring for uptime, application errors, Real User Monitoring (RUM) & page statuses.
The software platform is developed upon the Laravel framework with the search functionality and the CMS utilising Vue.js and accessing the Laravel installation via API calls. Foundation was used as the frontend SCSS framework developed using semantic coding.
