What Client Was Expecting from the Perception System?

Digitalization follows sophistication, and now offices and field work of civil engineers and architects are experiences sophistication in entire business processes and deals with clients. Papers have almost disappeared, and big to tiny computing devices have replaced the papers. Drawing accomplished on computers and viewed in laptops, tablets, and sometimes on smartphones too using digital viewers.

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.

How We Evaluated Client’s Needs

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 –

Genuine Approaches Taken by Team of Software Developers at Perception System

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.

Project Management

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.
