It was determined that a globally-accessible component library leveraged across platforms and teams would provide a near-immediate resolution.
Apexon helped implement a shared component library of readily-consumable React components, hosted through Styleguidist. This component library provided developers the ability to import it into various projects as an NPM module adhering to semantic versioning. Additionally, design system rules were coded such that developers did not need to write CSS within their applications, which ultimately improved consistency.
As a result of implementing this library, new component creation was reduced, as designers could quickly reference a live instance of the component library as well as back import it into the design tools of choice.
Developers spent significantly less time on component creation or enhancements and could instead focus on quickly implementing new features and resolving bugs. Sprint velocity presented a meaningful increase while application consistency and performance improved.
