    iPhone App Development for Pernod Ricard

    Pernod Ricard (the owner of Absolut, Jameson, Malibu, Martell, etc) came to us in May 2013(!) with an idea to turn their database of cocktail recipes into a quickly-searchable app to be used by their 18,900 employees. The idea was put on hold for a few years but for 2019 we decided it was go-time to build this native iOS app.

    They posed these challenges to the Div team:

    • Build an offline-first iPhone app so that users can access content when there is no cell service.
    • Build the app with React Native and CouchDB.
    • Import recipes from an Excel spreadsheet.
    • Scrape images and missing data from an old Pernod website.
    • Within the app povide instant filtering for text, brand, product, ingredients, occasion, presentation, style.
    • Allow users to bookmark and share recipes.
    • Allow users to create menus from a selection of recipes, PDF the menu using multiple styles, and email the PDFs.

    Pernod then used the Apple Developer Enterprise Program to distributed the proprietary in-house iOS app to their employees.

    Drupal Design Development and Performance Optimization for NYC-based Spirits Company

    Migrate website to Pantheon, reduce the codebase, implement caching, SEO audit, accessibility audit

    A performance audit of Bowler Wine's website showed "enormous network payloads". The Div team was brought on board to do an overhaul of the codebase and site-build to improve performance, accessibility (ADA compliance), and SEO best practices for their website. We also did a redesign + redevelopment of the frontend. The site has about 8,000 pieces of content, mostly well-structured in the database, but not optimized on the frontend. We migrated the website to Pantheon, removed 70 modules from the codebase, implemented sensible image presets, caching, and used Apache Solr Search to build an easily searchable display of Bowler's extensive portfolio of wines and spirits.

    Multi-Brand Web Platform

    Building and maintaining 5 websites for 5 brands can be an expensive undertaking. We came up with an innovative, budget-conscious way to build out 5 websites, all with similar functionality, for 5 brands using the Drupal Domain module, Pantheon, a single codebase AND database. The result is a single CMS that allows content editors to log in to 1 system, add or edit content, and publish to any or all 5 domains.
