DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION SERVICES
The Compotools developers were hired for a certain stack of the work. During the collaboration, one site which was previously started by another team, was fully developed and completed; two more sites were developed from the very beginning by the new team. Computools experts also implemented new functions and fixed the old ones in the client's framework. Thanks to close cooperation, LineSale enhanced their services, attracted more clients and achieved all the goals.
Several key options we solved:
Assisted in developing and implementation of new features.
Applied crucial fixes to enhance the client’s services.
Assisted in developing reliable solutions for mobile versions of the customer’s websites.
Business Process Automation
Limited time for processing large data volumes
Lack of tests
Tight project schedule
Lack of proper documentation
Availability of frameworks for most of the typical tasks
Quick response for technical requests
High task and decisions acceptance rate
Existing large clients base

Digital Platform & Technology
To build a state-of-the-art platform, we have carefully chosen a set of technologies with exceptional performance and security characteristics. Our chosen technologies were also highly efficient in terms of total cost of ownership and support.
Python was designed for readability of the code and it has some similarities to the English language along with influence from mathematics. One of the main advantages of Python for this project is its ability to work on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, etc).
It was built by experienced developers and it takes care of much of the Web development hassle so that engineers can focus on writing an app without reinventing the wheel. What is more, it was specially designed to help developers take applications from concept to completion as quickly as possible.
Apple Pay is easy and works with all Apple devices. Customers can make secure purchases in stores, in apps, and on the web. It is simple and safe to use, even more than an ordinary physical card.
Amazon Pay makes it simple for customers around the globe to pay for products and services using the information already stored in their Amazon accounts. It is a familiar buying experience for nearly anyone.
PayPal is a faster and safer way to make an online payment, purchase goods and services, send and receive money online. It is a well-known payment system, which can be used almost anywhere in the world.
Work on the digital transformation project involves the creation of a transparent and convenient for all participants communicative eco-system. In close cooperation with the customer, we chose several communication methods, defined a schedule of personal meetings and discussions on the project. In addition, providing open access to the Computool's internal system of setting tasks allowed the consumer's and the company's Team Leads manage and control project on each stage.
For this project, we developed a specification based on the frameworks offered by the client. Since we had a very tight working schedule and short terms to finish tasks, we had to find the fitting solutions as soon as possible. Working in close collaboration with the client’s in-house IT Department gave us a good opportunity to keep close attention on all important functional and nonfunctional requirements.
Development Process :
1. Examining the frameworks provided by the client. 2. Searching for solutions for the tasks. 3. Developing web pages based on Python and Django, using offered frameworks. 4. Filling websites with all necessary information
provided by the client. 5. Additional frontend development.
One of the most important things for a successful collaboration with the client is close communication. The team Lead built a convenient, transparent and clear communication system that allowed all the project participants to be in touch with each other and to stay up to date.
At the end of each sprint, we conduct team discussions and arrange feedback sessions. By exchanging the opinions and emerging ideas, our developers find truly innovative solutions, improving their personal efficiency and contributing to the efficiency of the entire team.
To find a really innovative solution, our engineers meet for brainstorming sessions. They stimulate creativity and each participant has an opportunity to offer as many options as he can think of, including the most fantastic ones. It helps to find the truly ingenious ideas and solutions.
Well-coordinated collaboration at all stages of the coding process increases the pace of the development. This works especially well when our software engineers cooperate closely with their client counterparts.
Internal Communication Flow
To launch the project it a good time, our engineers had to solve many issues quickly. For this purpose we used Jira and Skype, as the best ways to communicate with all the team participants. For the internal communication the developers used Skype and Trello. Thanks to the well-organized communication the project was completed on time.
Project Management Methodology
As we had a tight project schedule, the Computools Team Lead decided on the Agile and Scrum as management methodologies. Each of them brought some benefits and advantages for the project. Agile assists teams in responding to the unpredictability of constructing software. It uses incremental, iterative work sequences that are commonly known as sprints.
The Scrum model suggests that projects progress via a series of sprints. Scrum methodology advocates a planning meeting at the start of the sprint, where the team members decide how many items they can commit to, and then create a sprint backlog – a list of the tasks to perform during the sprint.
During an agile Scrum sprint, the Scrum team takes a small set of features from an idea to the coded and tested functionality. In close collaboration with the client’s team of developers, this methodology allowed each member of the team to take care of his own part of the work and stay in touch with each other.
