Problem

As ideel grew from an idea to a leader in online discount fashion, it needed a new technology platform that could handle increased load. Millions of new customers, orders, payments and shipments had to be processed through a state of the art system that automated all of the moving pieces.

Approach

Sphere Software designed feature enhancements to their existing platform, providing better oversight and integration with multiple logistics providers and warehouses, while automating communications at all points of the supply-chain. Sphere also designed and built ideel’s Offer Promotion Engine, which provided a more accurate way to reach targeted customer segments.

Problem

OneMain Holdings, Inc. (formerly Springleaf Holdings, Inc.) is a financial company that has been providing personal lending products for more than 100 years. They needed to start transitioning their brick and mortar business into the digital world. Their new service would be an iLoan.com site where a potential borrower could apply for a loan, get the application verified and approved, and receive the loan. The site also needed to offer customer support throughout the entire loan life cycle via backend logic and customer representative applications. With these improvements, OneMain’s clients would not need to visit physical branches at any point during the loan process.

Approach

Sphere provided a team of experts to assist with the rapid development of the application and the related test automation. We helped to implement complex integration with 3rd party financial vendors like IDology, InstantID, TheWorkNumber, Yodlee, GDS Link, Acxiom, and others. QA automation of a complex SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) application enabled fully testing the whole application in integration without hitting external services and allowed for the development of continuous integration. By augmenting our client’s team, Sphere helped OneMain to more quickly deliver their product and meet their ambitious goals.

Problem

Sears Home Services (SHS) turned to Sphere to support and maintain a reliable, user-friendly, secure website that offers potential customers a vast array of home improvement services. Individual pages were slow to load and lacked important features related to remodeling, repair, and maintenance. When clicking various links, users received error messages or were taken to the wrong page. The website crashed on a weekly basis, and creating new content was problematic. Important security measures also had to be addressed.

Approach

Sphere’s team of experts continuously conducted functional, regression, and smoke testing to detect and correct Sears Home Services’ functionality and stability problems. Requirements for improvements were generated from both our Sphere testing team and outside business users. After determining the issues, key features were incorporated to enhance customer experience and increase sales. Users can now easily order on-site consultations, schedule repair appointments, and access how-to guides in the Knowledge Center. They can also read about the latest design trends and get remodeling ideas on SHS’s Learn page. With the site’s newly implemented content management system, content can be easily added and updated by SHS’s marketing team without developer involvement. The website’s overall performance was also greatly improved. Users do not receive error messages when clicking on various links, and the site has faster load times. Sphere provided 24-hour support throughout this entire process. SHS has now transitioned to a highly functional, stable website that offers solutions to any homeowner’s needs.
