With the Premium plan, the agent gets a fully customized flash site, a movie version, lite version and MIS version of their property. The agent is allowed to upload up to 32 pictures of the property, HD videos, Google map integration to get the exact location etc. The agents who opt for the Standard Subscription will get the flash and MLS version and not the other two. The entire site was built in Drupal 6 and it was a green field project. We were involved with all the aspects of development. The design was given by the client and the theming part was done by us. We worked closely with the client to ensure the look and feel of the website was exactly in tune with what the client had in mind. Here are a few highlights on the features on the site: Promotional activities like mass mailing via email for agents to communicate with clients E-brochures can be created that can be sent along with e-mails to clients Post to Craigslist- for enhanced visibility Videos can be uploaded of different properties Activity report statistics to measure the traffic of users (separate report for 4 different versions that a premium member enjoys) Additional products like email campaigns, customized four page brochures etc are available to the agent, if required DVD's, Postcards, virtual tours, single listing websites are the other different products offered If an agent already has a domain name then the new links that get created can be named in such a way that the URL looks similar to the one they agent already possesses. Custom domain names which are easy to remember can also be requested for. Coupon code system is available to the admin of the site. He can pass on discount coupons to selected agents who can then avail it during their next subscription for a new property. Youtube syndication feature Search Optimization done to ensure the created site gets good visibility Creation of printable brochures QR Code- Automatically generated QR code that can be placed on signs and print ads The payment system that powers LUXVT is Ubercart. Interested agents have the option to make payments online and avail the features of their respective subscription plans.

The admin of the site has the option to download XML files that gives a report on the total activity that happens on the site. This helps to understand how the site is performing and which are the areas to be concentrated upon etc. The site has been used extensively by upmarket agents across the world who have found it to be extremely beneficial.

Takamol B2B
Takamol B2B Online Marketplace: Takamol is a Saudi Arabian government owned limited liability company incorporated to provide services for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and thereby contribute to the development of the non-oil economy in the country. Takamol was owned by Ministry of Labor (MoL), Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) and Technical and Vocational training Corporation (TVTC) which are collectively known as MoLPlus. A key element of their strategy was creation of an On-Line Marketplace for SMEs to trade amongst themselves. The On-Line Marketplace aimed to bring in a set of efficiencies into the market by helping buyers and sellers find each other easily, enhance credibility of buyers and sellers through a registration and neutral party  verification system and an online order management system for ease of buying and selling. The website handles contents of two different languages - English and Arabic which is essential for a B2B site. English:   Arabic: Web URL: https://www.910ths.sa/ (The website has undergone further modifications since our engagement with them was completed in early 2016) Year: 2015 A detailing of the On-Line Marketplace we built is presented below. Broad user epic(s) : B2B service primarily constitutes of companies within Saudi Arabia to register on the 9/10ths portal in order to help them Buy and Sell products or Services. There are two main user roles to take into consideration in this service; Buyers and sellers. Buyers are companies trying to find product/services in Saudi Arabia and Sellers are companies trying to find customers in Saudi Arabia.

Common features for both Buyers and Sellers Social media Sharing Create a team profile Auto-matching Tag companies Rate companies Why was Drupal chosen? An ecommerce solution must incorporate a robust content management system if it is to provide a platform for ongoing success.  Drupal is secure, scalable and flexible by default. This is why most government websites including the whitehouse, india govt., australian govt., etc have used Drupal exclusively for their official and internal sites. This is why TakaMoL also went with Drupal.  This project is a very large and complex one requiring features like multi-lingual support, multi-domain, SEO, high traffic and so on. Also, Drupal is a CMS with framework like features and it is easy to build anything over it by extending it’s core features. This is why Drupal 7 was chosen.  There is no other CMS framework providing all these features out of the box. Architecture solution and delivery methodology adopted Platform and tools: Drupal 7 Modules Used: Entity, ECK, Drupal Chat, Media, Rules, Apache Solr, Facet API, Voting, Fivestar Third Party Integration: Apache Solr. Development Infrastructure: LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP); 2 webservers and 2 database servers were used for load balancing. Delivery Methodology: Continuous integration with Jenkins build server Development Model: We had used Agile methodology in this project as there were high degrees of complexity due to which requirements could not have been elaborated upfront and aggressive deadlines were to be met. Here the Product Owner was the Client Engagement Manager from Takamol who was responsible for maintaining the Product backlog which initially contained the prioritised, high level user stories. These high level user stories were broken down into smaller well defined user stories in a series of workshops, onsite at Saudi. The unclear requirements were pushed to the back of the backlog and developed into smaller user stories in an iterative manner throughout the project. A scrum team consisting of 1 business analyst, 7 developers and 2 testers was constituted and was led by Zyxware project manager/Scrum Master. The sprint cycle was 3 weeks. The cycle started with the sprint planning session and ended with a client walkthrough/demo and a sprint retrospective meeting. During the sprint planning session, story points were assigned based on the relative complexity of the user stories. During the build, while the developers worked on the build, the testers designed the test cases. As and when user stories were completed, testing was done and defects were addressed. Daily scrum meetings were conducted. After the first sprint the team capacity was determined via velocity which helped in sizing the future sprints. After each sprint, an incremental piece of the product was demonstrated to the customer for feedback. Any new requirements were added to the product backlog and prioritised.
