Appnovation was engaged to deliver a new, streamlined and organized Media Publishing platform for BMI. After a thorough discovery process, undertaken to determine the best digital solution, the scope of work deliverables tabled and accepted by the client and development team.
With the client's approval, the Appnovation team set about implementing, from scratch, a brand-new Media Publishing platform. BMIs platform was delivered as per the requirement, allowing BMI analysts to write, build and publish complex reports in both web and PDF formats, something which they had not previously been able to do.
Due to the efficient functionality selected and included by the development team, this platform was able to accommodate the include the full report life cycle in the form of a workflow, where different roles (e.g. analysts, sub-editors, production) were and are able to participate and contribute. The new platform was also fully integrated with BMI's legacy systems, with Appnovation further engaged to provide maintenance and support for the new site.
To ensure no data or informational flow was jeopardised, Appnovation's team also migrated all reports and corresponding articles from the last two years. The BMI publishing platform was based on a combination of a customized Alfresco CMS and a Microsoft Word plugin, therefore lacking modern web editorial features. Due to the high level of customizations that were implemented on top of Alfresco, an upgrade was almost impossible without rewriting part of the implementation.
Appnovation ultimately delivered a well designed, expertly developed, and incredibly streamlined, providing yet another digital solution to another satisfied client.
"Appnovation's approach to communication is very much that of a bespoke concierge service; concerned as much with the old school care that facilitates relationships as it is with the paperwork that enables it. A perfect marriage of flexibility and comprehensive documentation creates a very rarely enjoyed truly consultative and accommodating approach to what is a truly mutually transparent relationship."
