Our team worked closely with CRT – often at each other’s offices – to produce a minimum marketable product (MMP) over a series of four agile sprints. The usability of the portal was validated by user acceptance testing during each cycle.
We developed a bespoke content management system (CMS) for the portal from scratch and built complex back-end functionality on the Laravel PHP framework. To address the site’s user-friendliness, we built on our in-house framework, Hoisin, and adhered to current best practices of user experience (UX) and responsive web design as always. Alongside the portal, we created the Ximbio brand, delivering the new name, logo design, art direction and tone of voice, all of which were presented with comprehensive brand guidelines.
The first phase of Ximbio launched last year, with 900 reagents developed in universities across the country. We continue to work with CRT, improving the product by building the backlog of features.
