iPhone and Mobile Development
Fi works to exceed the expectations of the end user by creating mobile experiences that significantly enhance those of web sites and applications. We do not treat mobile design and development as an exercise in compromise. Instead we completely embrace the mobile medium, with a design & technology approach that ensures every pixel on the mobile device is utilized efficiently without compromising performance. This approach has proven to be a recipe for success for projects such as the Panamera, EA Sports Madden 10 Franchise and the Kontain iPhone application.. Besides targeting the iPhone, Fi also holds an expertise in building engaging Android and web-based mobile applications.
Facebook, Twitter and Co.
The rapid growth of social media excites and inspires us. Fi is a passionate driver and participant of the social evolution and we closely engage with our clients so they do become a part of it too. Providing a viral gateway to other social networks such as Facebook and Twitter is a key consideration for all our client work including our Kontain Enterprise product. Based on our extensive knowledge and experience of integrating with the social cloud, Fi can deliver anything from viral one-click content sharing to sophisticated embedded social applications. Alkoholprofilen's hugely popular Facebook application for comparing your drinking habits is a great exemplification of Fi's social media excellence.
Fi provides end-to-end solutions for building the next generation of rich internet applications (RIA) offering engaging user experiences tailored to our client's needs. Our highly experienced RIA team favors the Flex framework which offers a robust set of components that can be deployed to all major browsers across multiple operating systems. Utilizing the framework, our team gains access to a rich feature set including run-time skinning, modularization and tight server-side integration as well as the possibility to port the application seamlessly to the desktop using the Adobe Air platform. The Flex framework provides a solid RIA framework for us to build highly scalable and modular enterprise level applications such as Nordstrom's Backroom and our very own video platform solution FiV.
Providing solutions for user-generated media is one of Fi's key services. Whether it is in the context of our media-centric community product Kontain Enterprise or the Porsche Panamera web site and its user-generated photo and video stories, Fi always ensures an intuitive media interaction for the user, a seamless technical integration and an intelligent delivery. Our sincere commitment to these principles led us to build our very own multimedia transcoding solution named KIVATRA, a proprietary transcoding engine which allows uploading of heterogeneous video, photo and audio formats and their conversion into a web-compatible format.
System Hosting and Maintenance
Besides strategy, planning, design and development, a crucial additional consideration for any interactive project is facilitating the required system infrastructure and maintenance after deployment. Utilizing our self-maintained high-performance computing centers, Fi offers system hosting and maintenance services covering a wide field from architecture design, through system deployment to system operation.
