The Alongsiders team wanted to combine their data collection tool with the right dashboard solution to serve as a partner portal for their leaders. After researching multiple options that ended up being too simplistic and non-customizable, the team found Liferay Experience Cloud.
Liferay Experience Cloud provided a strong out-of-the-box foundation that could be customized according to the unique nature of Alongsiders’ needs, and its flexible low-code technology meant the portal could be integrated with Alongsiders’ existing tools. Crucially, Liferay Experience Cloud was completely hands-off for infrastructure management and support, so Alongsiders could funnel IT resources elsewhere.
From design to launch, Liferay Global Services was instrumental throughout the entire development and implementation process. Liferay Experience Cloud features like Liferay Objects drastically cut development time, and Remote Apps made it possible to build customizations without changing the platform's architecture. Despite encountering delays, the new partner portal launched in six months.
