Key features and highlights

  • Registration

User registration became easier with a better, more intuitive UX. The new application flow allows users to fill in their personal data, mark their preferences, and register both themselves and their teammates for MUN events.

  • Payment

The new payment feature enables secure payments via Stripe and other methods.

  • Communication

With new real-time communication options like chats and box messages, the platform’s social networking capabilities have been reinforced.

  • Delegation

The delegation page lets MUN participants create teams, also known as delegations, and apply for a conference together. The page redesign improved such functions as adding and removing members, and communication with teammates.

  • Job Market

SmartexLab contributed to the development of this brand new feature MyMUN is going to implement in the near future. The team developed a clickable prototype of the service allowing companies to register and publish their vacancies on the platform, and users to apply for them. In addition, SmartexLab created a presentation explaining the feature.

  • Collaboration Details

Consistent meetings twice a week and communication through Slack guaranteed the success of the project. The team was actively shaping and refining the platform functionality, coming up with new features. By setting the right priorities, the team was able to address the project’s tight deadlines and extensive scope.

Business challenge

MyMUN is an online platform for organizing Model United Nations (MUN) events all over the world.

It provides conference coordinators with event management automation and enables 14-29-year old students to apply for participating in MUN simulations.

The website combines such features as a database of 1,500+ events, registration for events with flight and hotel booking, a collection of research papers, and social networking. At the moment, the user base exceeds 100,000 people.

In the previous version, the website was too cumbersome to navigate through, calling for a massive redesign. The problem was, its front-end tech — Angular 1.4 — couldn’t support the upcoming changes to the UX and UI, so a migration to Angular 1.6.5 was needed.

Delivered solution

During the redesign and migration to Angular 1.6.5., SmartexLab overhauled the core platform functionality and added new essential features.

The team revamped the UX behind user profiles and service pages, using Sketch for mockups and InVision for prototyping. The new platform interface reflected the changes, making the website more relevant and appealing to its target audience.

The new functionality now includes more ways to work with user and team profiles, connects online payments, and enables real-time conversations between users.

Project results

SmartexLab finished the UX and UI redesign of the MyMUN platform in two months.

To make the platform navigation more straightforward and user-friendly, the team revamped such processes as user registration, team delegation, communication, and payments. In addition, a prototype for the brand new Job Market feature was developed.

Now the project is in the maintenance and support phase while the client is preparing a new scope of functionality.
