Communication

One of the keys to successful cooperation is a properly created communication framework. To collaborate on a project, the most convenient and effective communication methods are always selected, providing quick contact and receiving answers to urgent questions. For this project, Computools used Skype for video conferencing, email for exchanging data and reports, and face-to-face meetings.

Business Process Mapping

01
CONSULT

The consultative stage allows to identify project goals and customer expectations, identify possible risks, obstacles. We study ready-made solutions, similar solutions from competitors (if any), our own developments in order to choose the best way to achieve the goals and complete project's tasks.

02
DESIGN

The interactive prototype being developed at this stage opens up new possibilities for both parties. This is a great way to understand how close the developers' and the customer's vision of the finished product. It also allows to more thoroughly study the necessary functions, introduce new ones or change already agreed upon ones. The specification developed at this stage forms the basis of work on the project, while maintaining the basic algorithm of the necessary actions.

03
ENGINEER

Creating a team is one of the important stages of development since the success of the project depends on the selected specialists. After the formation of the team, roles and tasks are distributed among the performers. All tests and checks are carried out according to the created schedule.

Interactive Prototype

The clickable interactive prototype serves as a convenient additional tool for working on a project. The ability to learn the features, options and basic design of the application helps to better understand the requirements and needs of the client. In addition, it saves time on making corrections to the finished product.

Digital Platform & Technology

To build a proper architectural solution and parsing system, NodeJS microservice architecture and MongoDB chosen for the preparation of the backend solution.

NodeJS

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, JavaScript runtime environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command-line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user's web browser. Consequently, Node.js represents a "JavaScript everywhere" paradigm, unifying web application development around a single programming language, rather than different languages for server- and client-side scripts.

MongoDB

MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with schema.

System architecture

Specification

The project specification allows to avoid errors on the project and captures the actions that must be performed during the development process. The basic algorithm of actions is created at the design stage.

BACKSTAGE

The development process takes place in a friendly area of constant discussion and timely completion of tasks. We strive to create a healthy working atmosphere where each project participant can express their opinion, propose an idea or solution.

Dev meetings
Developer's meetings serve two purposes at once. Firstly, it is the interaction of team members, which allows it to rally and work more harmoniously. Secondly, it helps to detect errors in the code, find a solution or share experiences with other developers.
Team Brainstorming
Brainstorming is one of the most productive ways a team can work on a project if necessary to find an original solution. Each participant has the opportunity to offer an idea, even the craziest. Truly innovative solutions appear in the discussion.
Feedback sessions
At the end of the project or a large part of it, we conduct feedback sessions. This helps to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the project, its participants. Everyone gets the opportunity to improve their skills for the next project.

Internal Communication Flow

Internal communication on the project is built in two directions. The project manager chooses a convenient system for distributing and monitoring tasks, as well as messengers and communication methods for video and audio conferences, solving urgent and current issues. For this project, Jira and Skype were chosen as the main methods of communication and project management.

Project Management Methodology

Application development is conducted as efficiently as possible according to the agile methodology. Scrum was chosen for this project, and the workflow itself was divided into convenient segments - sprints. During the sprint, code was developed in the frame of tasks. All participants in the project at the end of the sprint carried out a check and sent a report on the done work. This allowed to identify errors and bugs in the early stages and eliminate them. This ensures the stability of the developed code, its purity and high performance.
The key benefits of using Scrum are: the quicker release of a useable product to users and customers, higher quality, higher productivity, lower costs, greater ability to incorporate changes as they occur, better employee morale, better user satisfaction.

Design Development

Creating a catchy and attractive design was an important part of the project. UX/UI designers have created a customized application design to reach a wide audience of users. During development, user experience came first, as usability was one of the key needs of the target audience.
