Spot Network:


A company with revenues of multi million and which services content provision for multiple web sites.

Business Problem:
Spot Network needed to include TV listings in one of their premium web sites Zapping.com. They challenged us to provide the quickest, cost effective, error free system available. Input came from text files which were received from cable companies just a few days before the end of the month.

Solution:
In less than 7 days, we provided a system which:
  • Reduced effort from 40 hours to 2 hours per month.
  • Increased channel listings from 5 stations to 34 in this same 2-hour effort.
  • Implemented improved displays which increased viewer visits by 300% within 60 days

    As the result of these development efforts, Zapping.com became the most complete and reliable Guide in the argentine market.



    Fotograma.com:


    Is a company which provides news and reviews for movies

    Business Problem:
    Fotograma published through a manually updated web site. Journalists and webmasters spent an average of 4 hours a day updating the weekly content of the site.

    Solution:
    In 11 days, we developed an application to feed a database with the news, and required HTML files needed for the website.
  • We reduced the time spent to upload information from 20 minutes to 5 minutes per news item.
  • Journalist time saved was used to produce more content significantly increasing readership interest
  • Automated news indexing for easier accessability and sorted by different criteria.
  • Fotograma.com converted from a weekly publication to a true portal with constant updated news as a result of these development efforts.
  • Frequency of visits increased 400% because readers accessed daily rather than weekly.
  • Automated email generation and distribution to each subscriber reducing time managing subscriber data by 80%

    As a result of these efficiencies, Fotograma added listings for DVDs and VHS listings and recommendations.



    Rock.com:


    Is a portal that identifies 6500 artists and their work.

    Business Problem:
    Site was updated manually since its creation in 1996 requiring large resource efforts.

    Solution:
    Developed an automated publishing system allowed the contents to be duplicated across all artists involved in each musical effort.
  • Artist records increased from. 32000 to 50000. and lyrics from 4500 to 6500.
  • Current content allowed producers to plan their musical venues from the latest information

    As a result of these efforts, the site became the most important encyclopedia of Rock Music in Latin America.
