About the Client
Industry Real Estate
SMPS is an organization of consultants. They offer planning and design engineering services for diverse types of infrastructural projects.
Services we offered
Field updates are taking place in real-time and offices are seamlessly connected with fields and clients too. Digitalization/computerization has brought transparency as well as efficiencies in their day-to-day operations, and they now need viable software solutions for project management using the latest system, which includes electronic gadgets and networking facilities.
To be precise, civil engineers & architects wanted to track each professional activities of their employees by providing a user authentication based Project Management System (PMS) through any device including mobiles. They want to include industry-specific features like –
Should login & see the assigned tasks
Select the task and seek approval to start it
Can log hours for those tasks
See the milestones
Send CAD and other deliverables to the concerned stakeholder
See payment schedule and payment receipt
Project Manager Requirements
Check the progress and status of work on the dashboard and in-practice/on-site
Receive deliverables and forward to concern person, authority, or client
Define milestone and check hours logged by employees
Carry audit of work done, find missing deadlines or incomplete deliverables and take appropriate actions

Requirement Analysis & Feasibility Study
We have allocated our business analysts to dig the details for their requirements and actual problems they face. We have run competition analysis to know that what existing off-the-shelf or ready to use software available in the market doing and where those fail to deliver their bespoke requirements.
Wireframe Designing & Prototyping
Based on the findings, we have set up design for wireframes of project management software and prepared interactive prototypes after several meetings with their business teams and approvals. We have designed symmetry of their daily chores and traditional or prevailing project execution methods.
We have identified the pitfalls of manual project management system in work allocation, tracking of work, monitoring work quality, checking deadlines, and managing work hours, hence the payment.
We have recognized shortfalls in role allocation, and real implementation in project execution to establish liability for anything happens good or bad during the project lifecycle.
Monitoring & Controlling
We have decided to set up a rich dashboard that provides complete visual cues regarding project progress and real-time updates, as well as tools to manage the project easily, quickly, and efficiently.
Our journey in this software development case was fascinating enough and sizzling throughout the software lifecycle.
We have analysed the client’s needs precisely.
We have divided it into the lifecycle of civil engineering and architectural projects and relevant terms.
We have broken down it using a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) methodology.
We have adopted a way of developing traditional PMS into digitalized system as per needs of all stakeholders.
Designer and junior civil engineers doing technical work.
Project Managers who are managing projects working under the hood of a chief engineer or architect.
Design project plan, define milestones, and Deliverables.
We have selected the most appropriate technologies, tools, and techniques.
Deployment & Maintenance
We have delivered PMS successfully to civil engineers and architects with satisfactory maintenance and support services.
Milestones & Deliverables
We have decided milestones and deliverables with the consent of the client and delivered the web portals in the continuous delivery model.
The website has achieved quick adoption among the regional and international users and touched the 20K+ number of users within a short span.
We delivered the social networking site successfully to the customer and provided a satisfactory level of maintenance & support.
