Symfony has been increasingly popular among companies with new great web development success stories. SensioLabs, the creator of Symfony, has recently released inspirational business cases with Gault & Millau and BSN Sports. Learn more about the potential of Symfony for two businesses as different as a French gastronomic guide and a US custom sportswear manufacturer.
Gault & Millau: A Success Story on migrating to Cloud computing
Gault & Millau is a famous French gastronomic guide since 1972, listing many restaurants in digital format and supporting innovation in gastronomy. In addition to this guide, Gault & Millau carries out the labeling of certain products for major brands, as well as numerous event activities, including partnerships with major brands.
In order to offer an always qualitative service and in a logic of evolution, the digital activities have detected a need for a complete redesign of the Gault et Millau websites.
SensioLabs, the creator of Symfony, and Platform.sh helped Gault & Millau overcome its development challenges. SensioLabs first helped Gault & Millau create an optimized infrastructure in a cloud infrastructure workshop and migrate the backend to Symfony (read our article about what you need to know before migrating to a new version of Symfony here).
Then, Platform.sh provided dynamic, easy-to-manage and scalable environments, as well as extreme agility through an automated hosting solution for continuous deployment.
BSN Sports: A new US-based Symfony Success Story
For our latest Symfony success story, we bring you to the United States with BSN Sports.
BSN Sports is the largest manufacturer of custom high school sportswear in the United States. The company produces everything from T-shirts and sweatpants to soccer jerseys, water bottles and soccer balls.
In order to continue to convey and support the depth and variety of its offering, BSN needed a platform to support its sales team more effectively. From a technical point of view, BSN needed to reposition its current applications on the Symfony framework and was looking for consulting services to assist them in the architecture and implementation of the core framework.
As the creator of the Symfony PHP framework, SensioLabs has re-platformed BSN Sports’ applications on Symfony. Thanks to Symfony, BSN Sports now designs team uniforms and custom artworks in the blink of an eye. SensioLabs teamed up with Unleashed, our preferred partner in the US, to co-architect and develop the BSN Sports application.
Learn how BSN Sports empowered its sales representatives and schools to turn what was once an expensive process into an efficient, creative and even fun one: Team Art Locker.
