We managed to adjust the CRM to match the requirements of a new platform, with only a few small changes.
Chilling was designed and developed within two months. It brought new customers from day one after release. Our new summer design targeting students and young grads led to fast sales growth and the great success of the first Chilling season. Here is the summary:
