Annunci.net is a leading online classifieds website in Italy with about 1M uniques every month. It is a generalist classifieds site with ten categories, more than 90 subcategories and about 350,000 ads online.
- Drupal is open source and we would build a technical team staff looking for the best freelancer specialized in this framework.
- The architecture of Drupal supported us to design the lifecycle of a classified ad implementing a workflow.
- Drupal offers the best features to implement security and access control for ads and user accounts.
- We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel for any other marginal feature.
The goal of the project was to rebuild a six year old site from scratch improving some existing features and adding others. Key of the project was adding a faceted search and filter feature that helps users to find the right classified ad.
Annunci.net contains about 350,000 ads and many other user generated data (searches, favorites, user accounts). With the new platform we wanted to be sure to manage these data to ensure acceptable performance in presence of limited hardware. We succeeded!
We integrated a brand new seo system with the drupal development. The integration was simple and offers a flexible system for our future requirements.
This new version of Annunci.net offers some premium products to advertiser. The purchase system of these features was developed with the Commerce Module and the design of the payment and the management of the cart was a breeze.
