The company assists with finding residency, locating real estate, getting a visa, transporting from the airport, and more. Using Solid. Rent, people find real estate using a wizard with filters.
Problem

We needed to achieve the following goals:
— Design and develop an extensive search function based on several real estate-based criteria.
— Simplify the admin panel to help content managers add new real properties.
Describe the company.
Solution

After launching the new site, the client stopped using SEO links without losing any traffic. In addition, the site's conversion rate is 2.4% for two target actions: booking a real property or leaving a request. Here are some of the site's current features:
— The site generates a unique, public link that favorites a user's objects. Users can share this link to review a set of objects at a later time.
— The site contains a set of ready-to-view objects.
— The site provides tips to simplify the search process. If there are an overwhelming number of search results, the site advises the user to add new search criteria. If there are no search results, the site automatically removes a criterion so that the results are no longer empty.

Vasko.ru was one of the first Russian online companies to start an e-commerce business in 2004.
Problem

Vasko's existing website was old and ineffective, so we focused on the following goals:
— Increase conversion rates of two key actions: adding to cart and buying.
— Improve the company image.
— Decrease the SEO budget to zero.
— Decrease server costs and simplify the admin panel.
Solution

— We significantly simplified the catalog's information structure.
— We designed a new approach to the site's interaction.
— We developed a new backend app for the site with online billing, CRM integration and content geo-dependency.

It was a major project, but very interesting. We had to develop the whole platform from the very beginning and optimize the selling and buying process for both the client and manager.

With this simple site, we walked through all of our workflow; created a brief with business goals and key messages; developed several prototypes, complete with information architecture and content; built several layouts; and developed the backend on Python / Django.
Solution
