With over 400 media clients and 11 years of success, WorldNow has solidified relationships with many leading media companies. WorldNow clients operate award winning sites and have won numerous awards for their Web efforts, including the National and Regional Edward R.

The main product is a CMS for local media websites throughout the United States, called The Producer. It`s an advanced Internet technology that enables local media companies to build profitable Internet businesses. The WorldNow Producer is an entirely browser-based Site Management System and a cost-effective way to manage and distribute media content on the Web.

The product has an extensive video streaming module, the Video management system. It employs an open architecture tailored to the individual needs and strategic goals of customers in a variety of formats including Flash, Silverlight, and Windows formats.

Challenge And Solution

Over 12 years of development, the product codebase is rich in functionality and complexity. At the same time, their clients have strongly embraced digital channels as the way to exploit new revenue strategies. It was essential to seek out new resources to complement their core staff with ASP.NET programmers.

Redwerk has established a permanent team of senior software engineers that complement Worldnow`s team. Redwerk team is responsible for maintenance, architecture and new development for their current and new Video/CMS products. All work performed follow an agile methodology.

The CMS and Video platform are SaaS applications running on hundreds of servers, where stability is a key.

Redwerk has successfully assembled an offshore team to facilitate daily development activities. To provide better communication between the teams from the US and Ukraine, we have a direct US number in our Kyiv office. We also conduct knowledge exchange trips where our team is onsite in the Worldnow office. Our engineers have successfully ported legacy parts of the system from Microsoft Classic ASP to Microsoft ASP.NET/C#.NET (REST architecture) and contributed valuable ideas to the products design and architecture.

What is so impressive about Redwerk, is their never say die to their commitment to their clients. During the terrible crisis in Kyiv, one of their programmers went to their office to do something that he felt was important. We never knew what happened here at Worldnow until moths later. There is a noble and courageous quality to everyone that we’ve encountered at Redwerk. They do brilliant work and execute what they say they will always on budget and on time. I can’t imagine a greater company and group of people that we could’ve been blessed to work with over the years. I am very humbled by Konstantin and his folks. I hope you have the good fortune to work with them as well.

Incredible Folks the World Over!

We’re living through some terribly dark times. On February 24th, Russia invaded Ukraine, a peaceful and sovereign country, barbarically shelling civilian areas in multiple cities.

The war rages on, and everyone fights on their front. Our battle is the economic one - we continue working to employ Ukrainian tech experts who lost jobs, pay taxes, donate, and inform the global community about what’s really happening over here.

While we may not be the right fit for you, perhaps someone from your network could be interested in our services. Please refer them to us and reshare our message. Just doing that, you’ll help us a bunch.

Our delivery teams keep helping businesses launch new features, release updates frequently and safely, and modernize their SaaS platforms.

If you are open to learning more about Ukraine and how we mitigate war-related risks, drop us a few questions.

Stand with Ukraine by working with Ukraine!
