bTask.com (now presenceworks.com and instantwork.com)
Case study A large and complex directory site seeking to match Independent Contractors with Businesses, bTask wanted to revolutionize the market place: whereas similar services took days to make a match, bTask wanted it to happen in real time.
Besides our usual optimization of large database issues for this kind of site, the Madfish group created an innovative multi-protocol Instant Messaging (IM) program for bTask, allowing employers and skilled workers to find one another in real time on the web.
A best of breed implementation, helping our client achieve clear product differentiation in a highly competitive field, on time and on budget. As a testament to our development methodologies, we're proud to have completed this extensive project via email, IM, and telephone for a client on the East Coast, with only one in-person meeting, at the website's launch.
