Autodesk, who was a client of Hook 42, is a software manufacturer that develops industry leading tools for industrial design, architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing and media.
We helped Autodesk develop their Services Marketplace, a new website designed to connect vendors who are experts in Autodesk’s software with potential customers. Autodesk needed help implementing this large project which was built on Drupal 8. We jumped in mid-project to assist their in-house team to bring this to launch.
A key component of their website was a custom profile edit page built with React.js. This was a custom front end to edit a Drupal node. We leveraged Drupal 8’s powerful new RESTful JSON API to fetch node data, modify it in React, then send it back to Drupal. Also, we built a project portfolio feature which enables vendors to showcase past work they have delivered. This involved site-building, adding fields to the content type, Views setup, and custom theming.
Autodesk Services Marketplace launched in October 2017 and is successfully generating sales leads for Autodesk vendors while simultaneously raising awareness for Autodesk’s product offerings.
