VoIP Solution Search Portal
The leading vertical search portal that allows visitors to find, compare, and purchase VoIP services from 40+ service providers.
The start-up project needed a scalable platform to offer software-as-a-service for the booming VoIP market. The platform had to help consumers find, compare, select, and subscribe to VoIP services nationwide.
According to Gartner, the market of VoIP services was growing 61% to 100% annually. To become the market leader, the customer had to quickly roll out the enterprise-level Web services architecture to build the VoIP providers search portal. The window of opportunity to dominate the marketplace was less than 12 months.
The company had no senior in-house VP of Engineering to control the architecting and designing process. Moreover, the functional and business requirements changed in a rapidly-evolving marketplace. Finally, the first release of the new portal was due in 6 months.
Altoros provided full-cycle .NET application development, quality assurance, testing, and support services to create a robust and scalable Web solution. The functionality includes VoIP provider reviews, plan reviews, plan comparison, availability search, advanced wizard-like search, user feedback system, forum, and an affiliate system. XML-driven Web services enable third-party partners, such as CNET and ZDNet, to create co-branded Web sites.
The team ensured that the architecture, scalability, and flexibility of the system match customer’s requirements and business objectives.
This start-up project gained #1 market share in the VoIP search segment with the most advanced comparison service and the largest VoIP carrier coverage. By leveraging product development expertise of Altoros, the customer was able to drastically accelerate development cycles and reduce R&D costs.
