Realm Digital’s long-standing client, Daily Maverick required the development of their new website. Realm Digital was tasked to bring the Daily Maverick vision to life through the implementation of additional functionality that has been on their wishlist since inception.
The new website demanded a complete rethink of how users engage with news and information online, and how Daily Maverick could best meet the needs of their readers.
With over a million readers a month, all with varying news and information preferences, keeping everyone’s experience tailored, while having the website perform at its optimal best, was the main objective and challenge.
The new website features the addition of User Profiles. These User Profiles includes a dedicated preference centre, which allows users to follow their favourite authors, edit newsletter alert preferences and find saved articles.
With preferences unique to each profile, presenting countless scenarios and requests to the server at any given time demanded extensive testing and optimization.
We are incredibly proud of the team at Daily Maverick and the important contribution they make to SA politics through their investigative journalism. Given the critical role their website plays in the dissemination of their content internationally, we were honored to be involved.
Realm Digital worked religiously with our team to bring the new Daily Maverick site to life – despite working on a tight budget and the huge scope that a news site entails. They worked closely with us in all aspects of the project and their input and commitment helped shape the final product that we are extremely proud of.
