We worked in partnership with Volt to design an API that would be optimized for bulk actions, allowing a coach to update an entire team's workouts and progress in a single request. We then developed an Angular.js front-end that works in concert with the API to create an experience that's fast and fluid.
Many of the coach screens were designed to be very information dense, with a large amount of information displayed across several pages. This required a top notch API from us and a solid back-end from Volt. The two development teams worked closely to ensure that both sides of the application worked together seamlessly.
In addition to in-person meetings, we also used Slack to communicate with their development team while the project was underway. This helped facilitate conversations necessary to keep the project moving, without slowing down the workflow of either team.
Product development is an inherently collaborative process. Teams working together to create content, design and code, require seamless communication and trust. Many of the best products we have designed have been with great partners, like Volt. Our relationship with the Volt team is among the strongest we've ever had and we’re proud to celebrate the work we’ve been able to accomplish together.
