The app connects businesses seeking investment and partnership opportunities, bridging the gap between Chinese and European markets involved in business that spans the entire globe.
Great product and design thinking
Monterail provided some great product and design thinking and then built us a solid MVP. It was very useful to be working with someone who would bring their own ideas to the table and challenge our thinking, rather than just building to a specification.
Scope and Highlights
RUBY ON RAILS AND ANGULAR JS
The future of data analytics.
The client needed a tool capable of big-data analytics and ensuring that the data behind the service is properly and clearly presented within the web interface.
Key challenges of this project included:
Big-data analytics and proper presentation.
Working with immense datasets with English and Chinese companies.
Ensuring the security and privacy of user data.
Addressing two vastly different target groups and delivering impeccable translations.
In order to quickly gather insights about the markets and the potential users’ needs, we collaborated with the client and followed the progression of iteration results closely to react quickly when new issues emerged.
We designed the product completely from scratch, including the app's road map and architecture, custom dashboard, and UX. This gave the user an organized and clear structure, to understand how to navigate the application.
Our core actions for building the app included:
Using Elasticsearch as a search server to index a large amount of data and filter through over 600,000 records in the blink of an eye.
Structuring the PostgreSQL database specifically to accommodate multiple languages.
Adding an ActiveAdmin-based panel for translators, to make content translation processes easy and accessible.
Implementing SSL to ensure that all data is encrypted at rest.
Mutual challenge and satisfaction
The DealGlobe project was a great challenge because it had to be suited to the needs of completely different markets. Its success brought great satisfaction to the whole team and we were thrilled to show the demo to investors and first clients.
As a result of our cooperation, we delivered a working prototype, ready to be demoed to investors and first clients.
After its release in 2014, DealGlobe became a leading advisor and investor and the fintech industry's first cross-border M&A deals platform. The year after, they announced £1 million worth of Angel funds from its investors to help further the company's further development and growth.
Here’s what contributed to the app’s success:
From day one, DealGlobe was ready to serve its content in multiple languages with particular emphasis on English and Chinese.
The platform enables users to gain company insight and connect with the right people for investment opportunities, partnership deals, and potential sales leads.
Companies are able to identify potential business partners based on complex machine-learning algorithms.
