When some 525 Princeton Review employees around the globe had major problems distributing information and collaborating between locations via the international education company’s intranet website, The Princeton Review turned to i2Integration.
Project Manager Sofia Hansen said employee users were waiting “far too long” for the system to complete even the most basic tasks. And when employees can do nothing but wait, that’s time and money lost.
i2Integration optimized The Princeton Review’s intranet site which utilizes .net, a Microsoft-based technology, and DNN, a content management system. Now, functions that were taking minutes “are running in seconds,” Hansen said. “i2Integration did a great job improving the performance on several of our functions.”
In fact, through code modifications and upgrades, i2Integration slashed load times in some areas by up to 92 percent.
John Forsberg, i2Integration’s CEO, recalled the project, which resulted in a Master Service of Agreement for Web development services. “This is the type of project we love: an almost Whodunnit where we sift through mountains of code, looking for ways to tweak performance,” he said. “Then, when at the end of the project we can show definitive, not to mention drastic improvements in performance…How fun is that?”
Hansen listed the benefits of working with i2Integration: “They are very professional, attentive to our needs, responsive, available for us during our business hours and technically solid in DNN.”
The attributes above are critical to the New York-based Princeton Review, Inc. (Nasdaq: REVU), an educational services company which helps more than half of all university-bound students research, apply to, prepare for and learn how to pay for their education, as well as works with U.S. school districts to measurably strengthen students’ academic skills, and provides school districts with college and career resources.
The company also authors more than 200 print and software titles on test preparation, college and graduate school selection and admissions, and related topics.
