A web application portal for processing procurement in a very big construction company who uses the Vista ERP. The portal was designed for project managers to submit procurement orders and manage their receipts.
The client wanted to develop a custom web application as a front-end for project managers to submit procurement orders and manage their receipts. The challenge was to understand the Vista ERP database design and existing SQL code to reuse.
The team was assembled with a business analyst to work with the client to define requirement specifications and a developer to investigate the Vista ERP database. This initial activity was critical to come up with a sound proposal that helped the team and the client got an agreement quickly after that.
The team then developed and delivered every 2 weeks for client review and feedback. The application was successfully released after 12 weeks, and the client was very happy that we got more work from the client afterwards.
- Understand business requirements via initial call with the client.
- Create a proposal and got approval from the client.
- Milestone-based develop and deliver the software.
- Release and maintain the application afterwards.
The client was very happy with the fast turnaround. The success of launching the application led to the maintenance and further development work that required us to develop some other phases afterward.
