The Challenge

The site aimed to provide effective file and record management, enhancing employee experience and reducing the need for manual tasks. They sought for a set of apps tailored to their specific requirements including managing travel budgets and expenses, and for maintaining effective risk management which they wanted embedded within the site.

Working in collaboration with a UX designer to flesh out initial designs for each page, we ensured services met the diverse needs of the client and users within their organization.

Our Approach & Solution

The first step in delivering this project was to establish a project plan consisting of the tools used to conceive each component, and realistic timescales for delivery, identifying components that could be built using out-the-box webparts and those of a bespoke nature that would require development. Certain requirements needed an effective data model to support record storage and we therefore designed entity-relationship diagrams outlining the intended database structure.

We then worked with a UX designer to work on key aesthetic features such as colour scheme and object placements on the site, in line with the SharePoint capabilities and limitations in mind. Once the design had been agreed upon we began implementing each component using a waterfall techniques to develop, test, review and sign-off each component with the client. Implementing effective defect and change management ensured a level of robustness could be achieved, and technical issues could be monitored and resolved promptly.
