As this was a QuickStart project, BVT did not want nor need a long discovery process. It was more important to get their foundation in place fast. For this reason, all the work was completed remotely and we ensured a fast turn around. From start to finish, the entire project took five weeks (one of which was a public holiday), however the actual consulting and development work was completed under time and so we could deliver additional functionality for BVT at no additional cost and in the same time range.
The discovery process involved a questionnaire and a follow up call, this unearthed BVT's objectives and key requirements so we could understand the big picture as well as the details. BVT's also supplied some supporting documentation which helped the team understand the brief.
With the initial scope laid out, our QuickStart team set to work and completed the initial spec under time. With extra time available for development, the team decided to open up the development environment for testing and collect feedback at this stage. Although BVT was satisfied that the initial scope had been met and everything was functional, they identified several additional functionalities that would benefit their work: An additional filter logic, additional formula fields to save time on manual calculations, and a updated picklist so users can pick more than one asset.
With both initial and expanded functionality developed and tested we conducted remote user acceptance training where no issues were discovered and the staff we happy with the system.
