The Mayor’s Office in Montevideo had the goal of providing all citizens with a participation platform where they could access public government information, as well as actively shape policies to improve city management through debates, proposals, participatory budgeting and collaborative legislation.
To effectively set up this new line of collaboration between the government and its citizens, the Mayor’s Office needed to customize and implement new functionalities to a leading open source platform called CONSUL. This Ruby on Rails citizen participation platform is used in more than fifty countries around the world and has a very large community around it.
Through a public tendering process, VAIRIX was selected to carry out the project. Our engineers worked side by side with the Mayor’s Office staff following an Agile workflow environment.
The platform was successfully launched and has received high engagement and praise from users. In addition to gaining new expertise related to open-source projects used within the company, we’re proud of having taken part in helping enable our community to have a say and an impact on how the city is run.

MOD is a custom furniture retailer who needed to build a responsive e-commerce web platform that allowed its users to customize their furniture orders online.
Supported by a state-funded accelerator and working on a tight deadline, they turned to Vairix to help develop and launch their platform. MOD first engaged with a different contractor for this project, but were unhappy with their work as they were not able to meet the project’s requirements. They decided to change contractors, looked around for Ruby on Rails specialists, and found a long-term partner in Vairix.
For a two-month period, Vairix had a team of two developers dedicated to building the platform along with its customization features, and also addressing problems such as credit card processing issues while taking on any change requests. Vairix currently provides ongoing maintenance support for the finished site. This is one of several examples where the Vairix team stepped into an existing project which the previous developers were unable to complete.
By engaging with our expert team of developers, MOD was able to meet their tight deadline and launch the platform. Their satisfaction with the quality of our work has resulted in a long-term partnership.
