Project story

It all started with the idea of founders to change the way companies manage their projects. Most of the businesses switch between different tools and platforms wasting their time and efforts. The goal was to create all-in-one platform with all the necessary features for successful project management.

Challenge

Our clients came to us with Minimum Viable Product that has already received first investments and users. However, the platform was built with the outdated technologies (old Meteor version, ES 5, without modularity, etc. ) which significantly affected its performance. Our tasks were:

  1. Rewrite it with new Meteor version, ES 6, modular structure and more maintainable architecture
  2. Optimize and improve its efficiency
  3. Extend the functionality and add various integrations

Solution

Together with the Hive team we did our best to develop one-in-one platform for both big enterprises and small companies. It offers all the necessary tools for managing projects, planning, communication, keeping track of the analytics, and storing important files. Hive also has over 100 integrations, simple drag and drop functionality, and customizable design to maintain the unique style of your company.

The most challenging things during the development were

Gantt chart optimization
(display of 6000+ tasks on one page simultaneously)
Projects and summary views export to Excel
Calendar export to PNG

Usually, external sources (paid, as a rule) are used for the files export. However, we decided to develop it by our own and сame up trumps.
