July 2, 2008Software development company QArea has successfully accomplished a regular stage of software development project of HuffingtonPost.com, news and opinion site which in over two years has emerged as one of the most influential e-media brands.

HuffingtonPost logoFounded in May, 2005, The Huffington Post — "The Internet Newspaper" — offers extensive coverage of politics, media, business, entertainment, lifestyle and sustainable living. The Huffington Post has carved out a singular place online by offering a go-to destination for smart news, blogs and original content. The site has 9 million unique users each month and is the most-linked-to blog on the Internet, per Technorati. The site has 1,500+ thought-leaders — from celebrities and politicians to academics and policy experts — who contribute in real-time on a wide-range of topics making news today, including: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Wesley Clark, Esther Dyson, Ari Emanuel, Nora Ephron and others.

After a year of challenging tasks and productive collaborative work with QArea, Paul Berry, CTO of HuffingtonPost.com, expressed his appreciation:

"QArea has played a critical role in the development of HuffingtonPost.com. They have been able to become a part of the core team very quickly and develop amazing features that perform under the highest performance and demand requirements possible. They possess the highest level of business cooperation, an outstanding sense of responsibility and delivery of quality work. They are a team of high-skilled professionals who deeply understand the demands of modern B2B market and meet all the requirements.

Thanks to their quick and effective work our site has been featured on the main page of Yahoo several times and serves upwards of 110 million page views a month. Google has featured projects that we have done with QArea, as notable with Fundrace.huffingtonpost.com. Our traffic has grown 500% since working with QArea.

We plan on continuing to grow our business with QArea."
