The client was in search of a dedicated web development company to create a generic ERP application solution for workflow management and eDiscovery needs among diverse industry segments. The client wants the proposed web system befitting itself in any segment of distinguishing workflow establishments as per their needs for routine business processes and goals achievements along with the maximum productivity. The main purpose was to provide complete control of the internal processes serving the customers of the business. The system must provide complete access to current visuals, work specifications, flow & stages and active involvement of users at each stage of various case studies during the entire web development project.
How did Perception System evaluate the client’s needs?
We have applied standard requirements gathering strategies and techniques. The cooperation from client-side was praiseworthy. Below are our key findings for the client needs. We have found following prerequisites during requirement research:
- The need for ERP web application development aroused to alleviate bottlenecks come into the way of project management.
- The targeted diverse industry segments were government sectors, corporates, law firms, security agencies, and service providers.
- In these industries changes in workflow, patterns were rampant. So, concession over creating a generic platform was a big challenge.
- We have decided that the targeted industries should follow EDRM (Electronic Discovery Reference Model) for their workflow management.
- We have selected a right platform (for technology stacks) to reduce workload and minimized chances of failures or iteration.
- Our technical experts have checked the elevation view of project volume.
- We had determined the complexity involved in the project
- After having detail research, we decided to choose Yii framework as the backbone to script execution.
Sincere Approaches Taken by Perception System
The client has selected Perception System as its web development partner considering it as an unmatched team of web developers with a successful portfolio. We had set up a series of conferences with the client-side team and try to understand existing workflows of their targeted businesses for the system.
We had applied standard research and analysis strategies and methodologies to know the exact requirements and formulated development strategy accordingly.
Kiosk development project was especially designed for dental care niche using American 3rd party ‘Kiox’ hardware. Therefore, we have analyzed hardware, operating system, and software integration & compatibility.
We have planned inclusion of features and functionality targeting interests of doctors as well as patients. We also have considered opportunities to include other dental clinics to provide location-based services and generate ads revenue.
