Universal All Access (Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, the home video distribution division of American film studio Universal Pictures) Rewards portal is a social platform that enables automated targeting/re-targeting of shoppers to extend customer relationships beyond the store aisle. It allows customers to engage socially with the brand, which consequently influences their purchase habits and inadvertently encourages a similar kind of pattern among their connections to maintain a continuous channel of brand awareness through social media. The portal helps in maintaining a perpetual dialogue via contests and promotions, rewards and gamification, targeted couponing, and purchase validations with new customers while simultaneously establishing a rock-solid customer base.

Challenges

To increase sales of the upcoming release of Universal Studios movies in the form of optical disk drives and digital media

Solutions

Use Knoldus Solution and Kafka to implement a scalable event-driven architecture that powers the alerting system and broader digital transformation

Results

All the services are now independent in nature. This allows the developers to maintain the project in a better way so that the faulty code is easily identified and debugged efficiently.

Impact

Challenges

The company wants to keep its visitors engaged while visiting its website. To achieve this goal, they want to integrate the Thrillworks game so that users should feel engaged with the portal. The company needed a better Ul for the registration and login pages to increase the traffic spikes While taking care of customers and their behavioral engagement with products and the brand. The main challenge is to extend the registration and login flows to allow Universal to integrate & align the process into their games. We’ve to track users with a unique identifier who register and log in through these games and, after that, create a validation/forwarding/redirect page on the All-Access site to push the users into the game once they are already logged in.

Approach

Knoldus worked closely on the business requirements to identify key areas and integrated a section on Universal portal UI to play the thirllworks game. We have extended the registration and login flows to allow Universal to integrate the process into their games as well. Our developers  Implemented a completely new UI on registration and login pages to increase the traffic spikes and simultaneously capture meaningful geographical information of customers and their behavioral engagement with products and the brand. 

Solution

Knoldus worked closely on the business requirements to identify key areas. After all the  criticalities were identified, we started building the portal in Knolway (Knoldus software development methodology) following a two weeks sprint schedule. The user interface was built on Angular 8 with modern web libraries. We optimized the user interface to adapt the game section and registration/log-in page to every possible extent to keep the user experience as smooth as possible. Architecturally, the entire portal was broken down into multiple logical services, distributed as microservices, each using Reactive Manifesto for development needs, making all API communication asynchronous and non-blocking.

This below figure shows main features of the UNIVERSAL PORTAL. 

While implementing this game feature, we considered all three perspectives:

Results

They adopted the completely new UI on registration and login pages to increase traffic spikes. The user engagement was increased to the Universal Portal. We always care for customers and their behavioral engagement with products and the brand.

The final product could perform extremely well under high traffic spikes because all communication was done in a non-blocking & async fashion and scale-up was easy under the microservices architecture spectrum.

The user interface was developed in such a way as to facilitate a non-blocking environment, essentially adding to the best user experience and allowing the generation of data holding critical value for branding needs.

All the services & modules are now independent. This allows the developers to maintain the project better so that the faulty code is easily identified, debugged and tested efficiently.

To increase the user experience by enabling ease in routing & workflows throughout the application and also enhance the quality of the animations used in the application.

Extend the registration and login workflow to allow Universal to integrate the process into their games (e.g. The Forever Purge). It also enables the collection of registration email content if registered from the game. SSO is implemented from a UI perspective as well.

The team is dedicated, hard-working, and knowledgeable. They sincerely provide a flexible solution design that enables secured communication between the various components, saving significant time and money. This process has enabled us to become future-ready. They quickly understand our project and its technical challenges. Initially, there was a communication gap, but gradually the team worked on it and performed well.
