Theodo helped TheOne.Diamonds build a market place where diamond rings can be designed and bought online from the world's leading diamond exchanges. We helped the founder realise his vision by designing and executing an innovative and scalable technology strategy.


The Challenge

  • Like many entrepreneurs, TheOne.Diamonds’s founder was not technical and had not yet hired a CTO

  • Faced with a competitive market, it was a priority that development be quick and efficient. The product needed to be feature rich and represent a clear competitive edge

  • The API of the diamond wholesaler was unreliable and regularly unavailable. This made it significantly harder for TheOne.Diamonds to provide accurate pricing to their customers

How Theodo solved the problem

  • A Theodo architect developer, together with the client, developed a sophisticated and scalable technical solution

  • Good design was central to the project. We integrated UX and UI designers into the Scrum team to ensure we built an elegant and streamlined user experience

  • We collaborated closely with the Product Owner, giving him daily updates on progress made

  • The team solved the API problem by building a custom AngularJS application that cached an up-to-date version of the wholesaler’s data. This could then be displayed in the event the API was not available

Business Value Delivered

  • The platform was built in only five weeks to extremely high design and technical standards

  • The project was delivered on budget, on time

  • The founder had peace of mind, having been involved in the development process and knowing that the team remains available on demand
