ViewSonic App Marketplace Design and Database
ViewSonic needed a partner portal and frontend for its ISV applications. In addition to being able to make in-house edits, emphasis was placed on scalability so we chose Laravel instead of a traditional CMS.
We needed to create a database schema that could easily scale to hundreds of thousands of apps. On top of that, having a filter query system that runs a minimal number of database queries per search minimizes the stress put on the server during times of high traffic.
In researching ViewSonic’s competitors – we also wanted a page that would loading quickly and handle hundreds of apps without breaking a sweat. Instead of conventional loading, we opted to lazily load in apps with a pagination fallback for older devices. This gives a seamless infinite scroll experience while still providing a load time under 1 second.
What We Accomplished
ViewSonic’s ISV program provides a rich interface for learning about applications available and easily expanding these to include new partners without any choke points.
The intuitive design not only houses a lot of information in a meaningful way, but always scales responsively to any screen size and is extremely mobile friendly with a minimal footprint of around 700kb included scaled images.
