￼Helping a Leading Mobile Communications Company Learn More about WebGL
As a leading mobile communications company, our client came to us for help learning about WebGL and a number of other web developer services in which their competition was ahead of them. Because of this lack of knowledge, our client was falling behind with their plug-in street view applications. Our expertise in WebGL, along with the previous work we had completed for them, led them to turn to us for further assistance.
As a global leader in mobile communications, our client was faced with falling behind in the development of their browser based client application for a free street view solution in comparison to their main competitor, Google. Their reason for this was a lack of WebGL knowledge and developer resources. This lack of knowledge and experience was, in part, due to a lack of experienced in-house software developers and the lack of time to go through the search for the right personnel, as well as the hiring and familiarization processes.
With more than 1.3 billion people using our client’s mobile equipment to do everything from basic communications and accessing information on the web, to navigating their way around town and the world, our client needed software that was fully functional. Failure to come up with a working solution could lead to dramatic customer losses, a completely untenable situation. They called on us at Symbio in part because of our reputation for expertise in WebGL, and be- cause of their satisfaction with previous work we had completed for them.
While we were faced with the challenge of having teams working on the same project who were in completely different time zones, we created a work schedule that allowed this situation to resolve itself. We were also faced with a problem in which immaturity of the back-end caused a number of data issues, leading to extra work, but again, our teams were able to overcome these issues. While a good, workable design was vital to the program, it also required a large amount of testing to ensure that the finished product would be able to achieve the great scalability of the panorama viewer.
Symbio was able to provide our client with one of our engineering teams consisting of four experienced specialists. The PM/Lead Engineer spent the duration of the program located within our client’s facility in order to facilitate better communications with their own team of developers.
- As a result of the efforts of the engineering team from Symbio, in cooperation with the team from this world leader in mobile communications, we were able to not only meet, but exceed our client’s requirements with regard to WebGL panorama viewer.
- Our team was able to facilitate the transfer of this new technology from the research phase to the production team, who were in a position to begin immediate production for a timely release.
- Our team was also able to develop a couple of highly useful quality assurance tools that would make it easy for the back-end team to improve the overall quality of the data being provided.
- Our client was able to release their WebGL panorama viewer, a product that has attracted a lot of attention, led to many satisfied customers and increased overall profits.
