Vine is one of the examples of our strategic partnership with RCS Global Group. By combining RCS Global’s industry knowledge with our technical expertise, we were able to build an application that improved previously manual processes and provided insights into supply chain ESG performance and risks.

Improved membership management

The key factor for building a community is people. With that in mind, we worked towards improving the digital environment for Factory’s community members, so they could have such a nice experience online as they have among the building’s walls.

What we did was to improve the platform’s Member Area, where people can, for example, manage their profile and membership plans, and also added new networking tools like a Job Board, Companies Directory and Event Listing, making it easier for people to share experiences and connect.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

Integrated Front & Backend with LiveView

To create a responsive and high-performing web application and meet client expectations, we decided to use Phoenix Liveview. What is special about it is the ability to integrate both frontend and backend, in the Elixir fashion. This reduced the distinction for backend and fronted development in our team, thereby reducing the bottlenecks and making the whole feature development process more streamlined.

UX / UI DESIGN

Powerful, yet easy to use

Extensive UX research allowed us to identify the needs of each user, from the auditors inspecting mines to all stakeholders throughout the supply chain. With that, the user journeys were mapped and each UI element was carefully planned to maximize control, ease of use and information transparency. The result is a tool that makes the complex seem simple, enabling powerful capabilities through a easy-to-use and intuitive interface.

PRODUCT CONSULTANCY

Turning vision into reality

Taking into account the complexity of ESG due diligence and the countless possibilities for new features, it’s important to make sure the application is being developed according to the client’s business strategy, product vision, and their users’ needs. This requires close collaboration between LLI's product managers and RCS Global’s stakeholders.

Our collaboration with LLI on the Vine platform has been excellent and rewarding. LLI has consistently demonstrated their deep expertise and provided great product and technology advisory. Their work processes ensured they delivered high-quality results that exceeded our expectations. Their attention to detail, technical proficiency, and commitment to quality greatly enhanced the functionality and user experience of Vine. Their good integration with our team created a unified and efficient working environment. Post-launch, LLI has provided continuous support, addressing any challenges while continuously introducing innovative improvements to enhance the platform further and support us on our journey to version 2.0.
