Project Planning

Based on our findings, we created flow diagrams for the entire work-flow and planned the project development process by defining technical implementations.

Project Architecture

Web architectures at Perception System defined the entire back-end application architecture for database synchronization, and the front-end architecture with navigation, modules, and data interactions.

Wireframe & Prototypes

After several attempts and meetings with the client-side team, our web application designers prepared wire-frames and prototypes citing all possible work-flow diagrams, navigation, and data flows.
