The Made Unboxed site is responsive and supports all the main browsers, including both Desktop and Mobile platforms.
The application was developed using the Scrum methodology, is scalable and deployed on cloud infrastructures.
The implementation was initially planned to be executed using the Social Engine (SE) framework, and the first version came with a deadline of 2 months.
After the first sprint, the Pentalog team suggested switching to Symfony, which was better suited to reach the MVP within the deadline. Their initiative and strong commitment to catch up with the first lost sprint allowed them to deliver the MVP as initially planned.
The success of this first project in such a challenging environment strengthened the relationship. It allowed following new projects and an increase of the Made.com extensions with Pentalog to around 25 people today.
Talentlab X Pentalog
The TalentLab platform is a unique opportunity for up-and-coming creators to submit their furniture design proposals online, where customers can crowdfund and order pieces they like and support these initial designs. The platform was developed with the same technologies used for Made Unboxed.
Pentalog continues the maintenance and support of both these projects today but is also working on other different new projects.
By working with Pentalog, Made.com managed to control the recruitment challenges on a complex market like London, to quickly launch new projects, to speed-up existing ones – and do it all in a flexible framework and good value for money.
