PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Synergy FX is a globally leading true forex broker. The company provides its customers with the opportunity of fast execution and powerful performance in a secure, safe and regulated environment. Combining industry experience with the unique cutting edge technology helps Synergy FX achieve any trading goals in a short time. Among the clients of the company are individual traders, money managers, and financial institutions.

Synergy FX offers four main advantages: true ECN pricing, transparency, instant order fills, and anonymity. Almost all operations are executed automatically. This ensures customers’ trading deals that are well-timed and reliable. The main goal of the project was to create a convenient, customer-focused website, which would use direct sales and company’s advantages to attract more customers and investors. To deploy the project on the target date, Synergy FX entrusted development of the responsive landing page to the Computools team. In a rewarding partnership with the Synergy FX leaders the task was completed in time, thereby achieving the client’s goals.

Outcome

In close cooperation with the client’s IT department, our team developed and implemented an innovative digital solution that allowed to achieve all the client’s goals. The Synergy FX’s increased sales provided the best testimony for the successful collaboration.

Several key options we solved:
  • Built a convenient, customer-focused landing page.
  • Built additional (regional) pages.
  • Developed convenient UX/UI design for direct sales.

Digital Platform & Technology

Communication Framework

Open and efficient two-way communication is crucial to the success of a digital transformation project. Following consultation with the client, we agreed upon a clear and unambiguous communication framework with scheduled regular face-to-face and online meetings and regular reports by email.Our communication ecosystem also incorporated a structured documents environment and client access to Computools' internal task managing platform. This made both the general project roadmap as well as specific processes transparent and clear for all parties.

Specification

For this project we developed a specification based on a heavily design-oriented development with a very short timeline, since our client was planning a prompt start of his marketing campaign and needed the solution as soon as possible. Working in close collaboration with the client’s in-house IT Department we had a good opportunity to pay close attention to all important functional and non-functional requirements.

Goal 1. Simple solution that would generate a mass of leads for the end-time clients’ businesses. Development Process 1. Creating promotional WordPress pages for various local areas such as Asia, Europe, England, and the USA. 2. Creation of the separate country oriented localized pages for separate languages and marketing needs. 3. Creating new local sites for better presentation of the SynergyFX in different countries, country by country according to Synergy new offices' opening. 4. Creating contact and support system for a SynergyFX presentation websites network. 5. Creating used deep PHP customizations and tricks to make them affordable for a very high volume of users. Maintaining 1. Maintaining all the network of the WordPress websites. 2. Maintaining contact and support system for a SynergyFX presentation websites network. 3. Maintaining used deep PHP customizations and tricks.

TEAM

For this project, we conducted an expertise-based talent evaluation of our software engineers, to get the team with the experienced PHP and WordPress developers. This made it possible to meet the client’s deadlines and to deliver the first work results in the shortest possible time.

BACKSTAGE

Well-established internal communication is a key to a productive collaboration between the team members. Each kind of meetings — be it face-to-face brainstorming, video or audio-conferences — helps to achieve the main goal of the project.

Feedback Session

At the end of each sprint, we conduct team discussions and arrange feedback sessions. By exchanging opinions and emerging ideas, our developers find truly innovative solutions, improving their personal efficiency and the efficiency of the entire team.

Team Brainstorming

To find a really innovative solution, our engineers meet at brainstorming sessions. It stimulates creative activity and each participant has an opportunity to offer as many options as possible, including the most fantastic ones. It helps to hit the necessary ideas and solutions.

Dev Meeting

Well-coordinated collaboration at all stages of the coding and testing process increases the pace of the development. This works especially well when our software engineers cooperate closely with their client counterparts.

Internal Communication Flow

Our engineers worked as a part of an international outstaffing team to ensure the timely launch of Synergy FX landing page. For sharing reports and tasks we used Email; Skype, Jira, and Slack allowed to solve urgent issues. These communication channels were also good for audio and video conferences. Well-organized communication enabled to complete the project with zero compromises on performance and time.

Project Management Methodology

We followed the Kanban management methodology, which allowed us to manage the work by balancing the demands with available capacity and improving the handling of system level bottlenecks. It helped all — the developers, our software engineers, as well as the client’s IT Department — be more productive and stay connected. The Kanban methodology enabled us to make cycle times shorter, deliver features faster, and reduce waste of time by removing activities that don’t add value to the team. Rapid feedback loops allowed team members to be more motivated, empowered and higher-performing.
