Development and Maintenance of Rugged Smartphone Manufacturer Website


Our client for this project is a US-based manufacturer of the world's most rugged smartphones. These are specifically designed for those working in hazardous environments. One of the devices manufactured by this company has been entered in the Guinness World Records for being the toughest smartphone. We contributed to the development and maintenance of its website through the integration of Salesforce support chat, Lazy Load in certain pages and development and integration of the Public Safety web page along with video optimization. Here's a look at the details.

Integration of Fitness Calculator

The Fitness Calculator calculates a user's Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE). Based on a user’s details like gender, age, height, weight, daily activities and exercise information, it calculates the amount of calories s/he would need to consume to arrive at their suggested weight loss percentage. The user can vary this percentage among 15%, 20% and 25%. It also calculates the amount of calories a user needs to consume to encourage muscle growth without increasing unwanted body fat. The results are sent to the user via Email. Both, the user and administrator will have access to the results. This Fitness Calculator was developed on Wordpress platform and we used open-source PHP framework.

PayPal Sandbox Testing

We created a Sandbox account for testing the website’s PayPal transactions. Based on the responses received via this account for sample testing transactions, we made the necessary modifications to the website. It was made live once the PayPal transaction module of the website was rendered free of bugs.

Pushing the Website from Staging to Production

This was achieved via the following steps:

  • Backing up the website before pushing it from the staging to the production stage
  • Tying up loose ends by deleting demo pages, discouraging search engine tracking of the staged website etc.
  • Switching the domain name of the staged website to the production name
  • Transferring the site to the new server and configuring it

Final Deliverable

The development procedure has been conducted in Joomla platform and the database used is MySQL.
