Our case studies
Explore our expertise in Liferay product development.
Portal for medical document management
Challenge: The product is a web-based medical portal designed to streamline document management for medical personnel. The client turned to Aimprosoft services to obtain a correctly working website functionality after the migration to a new Liferay version.
Solution: Our developers migrated the already existing Liferay-based website from version 6.2 to 7.1. Besides, the team migrated the initial customization, custom portlets, database, and theme. However, they faced a problem related to a new API as it changed to the latest version. To solve such an obstacle, our developers transformed the implementation of modules that are responsible for customization. With the Liferay platform’s flexibility, we managed to successfully migrate the healthcare platform and optimize and simplify the workflow for doctors.
Portal for workers in the agricultural sector
Challenge: The product is a portal created for professionals from the agricultural sector. The client came to us with well-defined requirements regarding the functionality implementation and intention to use, particularly the capabilities of the Liferay platform to build the portal for employees from scratch.
Solution: Our team made sure that employees can fill out various forms on the portal and provide data about different aspects of life: marriage or divorce, the birth of a child, accident, salary declaration, etc. Special PDF reports are generated based on the filled data, and the requests are sent to a defined email address and also available for download. Portal is implemented on the latest Liferay 7.4 version, using modern Liferay features (i.e., master pages, fragments, and stylebooks), as well as Liferay forms and the Site Initializer framework for the portal data setup. As a result, we developed a portal that helped significantly automate routine activity for the employees, making it more time-efficient and convenient.
Healthcare provider portal
Challenge: The product is a healthcare portal created both for patients and doctors so that the former can find the necessary specialists and the latter conveniently sign the contracts with the patients that submit their requests. Our client's idea was to develop such a portal from scratch, which would offer convenient tools for both parties.
Solution: Following the initial requirements, our team created a dynamic interface with a special role and permission management system that changes its content depending on whether it’s a patient or a doctor. The portal provides patients with an advanced search tool that helps them find the required doctors easily. Once the patient finds the necessary specialist, the portal requires both parties to sign the contract. To implement this feature, our team created a dynamic form builder that gathers data about doctors and patients and converts it into contracts in PDF. Also, the developers implemented the e-signature feature to ensure that doctors and patients can conveniently sign these contracts. Overall, the capabilities of the Liferay platform and the customer’s intention to help patients easily find qualified doctors transformed into a robust healthcare portal.
Virtual1: web portal for a UK’s
Challenge: Virtual1 is the UK’s leading telecom provider. The client opted for our Liferay development company to create a centralized portal that would serve as a single point of connection for wholesale digital providers and facilitate their commercial growth.
Solution: The most suitable option to meet the set requirements was to use Liferay OOTB. During the portal development, our team made several software solutions for user accounts and back-office, including a custom order workflow, setting module for service packages, software kit for partner account settings. We also implemented a killer feature that is an online opportunity for partners to order products and associated hardware devices, compare prices of carriers, and perform e-signs. Thanks to the efficiently developed functionality, Virtual1 rapidly increased its partner network and eventually became a leader in the UK’s digital service market.
Motive Retail: auto dealer integration platform
Challenge: Motive Retail provides system integration solutions to the representatives of the automotive industry. The client came to us for a Liferay portal development to create a product that would enable seamless communication between car manufacturers and dealerships worldwide and streamline documentation exchange between both parties.
Solution: To overcome the major challenge related to the absence of a single collaboration platform, we chose the Liferay platform. We created a Liferay-based portal with a structured system of roles and permissions that was designed to store content, manage internal processes, and arrange communication between dealers and manufacturers. To solve the obstacle related to an inefficient process of heterogeneous documentation exchange,we built the Motive Integrator and integrated it with the Liferay portal. We created a robust solution that filled the gap in the lack of an integrated system for seamless collaboration and eliminated time-consuming manual efforts to work with different types of documents.
Challenge: The developed web solution is a portal that connects together certification centers, examination providers, and customers. The client came to us with a ready-made solution and requested to provide Liferay consulting services first. After the conducted consultation, the client hired us to assist with the product’s migration since the attempt to conduct it with the previous vendor failed. To conduct the migration successfully, it was necessary to rebuild the product from scratch.
Solution: Candidates can book a particular certification/exam in a specific center on a given date. Once they come to the test center, they get registered for the exam with a help of the center's invigilator. Afterward, he can pass the exam in the examination provider's system (integration with such systems is implemented on the portal). The portal had been upgraded from 6.2 to the latest 7.4 version. Code was upgraded and refactored, considering best practices and new Liferay features. Styling updates and Liferay customization was implemented according to new requirements. Also, the approach for 3rd-party systems integration had been changed considering new technologies. As a result, we assisted with the successful Liferay migration helping the client meet the set business objectives.
Challenge: The product is a sports portal for players, clubs, trainers, and fans. It contains information about tournaments, players' ratings, club members, news, etc. The client came opted for our Liferay application development services to expand the existing Liferay team and assist with the migration of the solution from the 6.2 version.
Solution: In the course of the development, the portal has been migrated from Liferay 6.2 to the latest 7.4. A lot of JSF widgets were replaced with fragments. A new theme had been developed according to the brand new style and used modern front-end technologies for Liferay development, such as fragments, style books, page templates, and master pages. Integration with a remote Oracle database was implemented using the MyBatis framework. As a result, the expansion of the team with our Liferay specialists helped the client significantly accelerate the development and migrate the product seamlessly.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a tech-savvy person to create a web product on Liferay?
No, you don’t. With modern Liferay features and inline content editing, you can create wonderful and visually appealing websites without any technical knowledge. You can master basic Liferay website development, create pages, drag and drop fragments, change images and text, modify styling configuration (fonts/colors/etc.), and create your own style books with brand styles. For Liferay application development, you may need a bit of HTML/CSS knowledge to create your own fragments. However, for complex solutions, it’s better to hire professional Liferay developers such as the ones from Aimprosoft.
Should I update my portal to the latest version?
In most cases — yes. If you’re still on the 6.x or lower version and planning some updates on the portal, you definitely need to consider an option for migration. With the new Liferay 7.4 features, a lot of functionality you need will become available out-of-the-box, and you’ll get a much better interface and capabilities for content editing, configuration, analytics, and integrations. If you’re already on 7.x, you need to check what features from the latest version might be useful in your particular case and come up with a decision based on that analysis.
- How often Liferay releases a new version?
Should I use a Community or DXP, or Enterprise edition?
There are not that many differences between DXP and Community editions. DXP has some specific “enterprise-only” features that are related to search configuration, workflow builder, audit, etc. If you’re not interested in them, you can proceed with a Community edition. DXP license also enables Liferay support. But support services can also be provided by a Liferay development company like Aimprosoft.
