MovieZine – Sweden’s most popular online community for film and TV-series, was recently redesigned and reimagined from the ground up. Slagkryssaren was proudly selected as technology advisor and development partner due to our competence and experience with modern web technologies.
Slagkryssaren has been an integral partner in the succesful re-launch of MovieZine. Throughout the process, the company has consistently delivered high-quality solutions on tight deadlines. Slagkryssaren are and continues to be our preferred technical partner.
One of the biggest challenges has been the sheer size of the MovieZine project. Large web sites can get complicated fast, to combat this we built the site in the style of a web application. We used modern frameworks such as Ruby On Rails to keep the codebase tidy and manageable as features to the site were added.
Another big challenge for the development team was to make sure that the design worked across a plethora of devices, all with different resolutions and browsers. A lot of labor went in to make sure that the MovieZine experience would be compelling no matter the device you visit the site from.
The new MovieZine has been released and the results so far are great, the number of daily visitors have grown to over 40 000 and the community loves the new site. At Slagkryssaren we are glad that the technical platform is robust and is working well. We would also like to thank all film lovers that visit MovieZine each day and make up such a wonderful community.Website: www.moviezine.se
Slagkryssaren has helped Scandinavia’s largest airline carrier, SAS, with technological development of the SAS mobile applications for Android and iPhone. We are very proud and happy to work closely with so many talented and forward thinking people at SAS.
The Slagkryssaren team provided us with outstanding technical skills and they quickly understood our business. We strongly recommend working with Slagkryssaren and look forward to future collaborations.
The big challenge has been to make sure that the mobile applications integrates well with the IT-infrastructure at SAS. Both the Android and iPhone app offer a full set of features, including: booking, checkin and flightstatus. A lot of thought has gone into making these features as seamless and easy to use as possible.
We have worked hard to meet the high requirements of developing applications of this magnitude. To reach SAS and our own high quality standards, we have carefully followed best practices when it comes to factors such as security and reliability.
The application has become an important business component within the SAS ecosystem and has to date reached over 900 000 downloads. The application was also nominated for the Grand Travel Awards 2014.Website: www.sas.se
The US Embassy in Stockholm approached us with the delicate task of designing and developing an app that would help and inspire Swedish high school students to search, find and plan for studies in the USA.
The big challenge was to develop smart ways to condence and prioritise the massive amount of information that easily can overwhelm someone that is looking for colleges and universities in the US.
We have worked hard to design the app so that the student makes the big important decision at an early stage. We then help the student to make smaller choices until only a few tailored colleges appear. The student can then continue to search for colleges or let the app guide them through the college application process.
Fishbrain, a leading social network for anglers, needed a partner to develop their technical platform. The Fishbrain app lets anglers share and register not only their catches but also whole fishing trips, locations, weather, the baits used and much more.
To develop a feature-rich app in a rapid tempo and at the same time build a scalable backend platform capable of serving the data intensive app with thousands of concurrent users.
A great app and cloud-based backend solution, which have helped Fishbrain win the Slush startup-competition and be selected for the Seedcamp 2013 investors program. The platform even integrates some nice social features.Website: www.fishbrain.com
Thomas Cook turned to Slagkryssaren for help with technical development of an ambitious companion app for their 1.5 million Nordic customers. The companion app will make the travel experience more seamless and rewarding by collecting all the information the traveler might need in one place.
have worked with many developers before and I can safely say that the SK team has been one of the most rewarding to work with. Beyond their excellent knowledge of the technical needs they've also delivered stability to the whole team
With the companion app the traveler can do a wide variety of tasks: seeflight, airport transfer and payment details, get hotel and destination information and receive updates about the weather forecast. The companion app also uses notifications to alert the traveler about important dates and happenings before the trip begins.
One of the biggest challenges has been to integrate all of the functionality into a coherent application that works both online and offline. We have worked closely with the talented teams at Thomas Cook to make sure that great results were achieved with both the iOS and Android application.
The companion app has been released on the App Store and Google Play. Both Slagkryssaren and Thomas Cook are very proud of the results that we achieved together and look forward to continued collaboration.Website: www.thomascook.se
