About Client

The Client of this Project is based out of Australia. Our Client was well established and successful in their line of Work which is Real Estate. Most parts of Our Client’s profession included management and coordination with the employees engaged in field work.

So in order to efficiently manage work, Our Client was using third-party software such as SmartSheets. It is cloud-based work management and collaboration tools using which one can efficiently manage their own and their employee’s work including:

And many more.

Challenges We encountered and successfully
resolved during the project
Challenge 1: Narrowing down and Polishing up Our Client’s widespread ideas.

The domain of Our Client’s Project is very vast. It constitutes a wide range of services and aspects. The initial ideas and references provided by our Client were very vague and not specific.

Our Solution:

Our business Analyst team invested in a lot of time and effort to gain a fresh insight into the Project's domain and refine Our Client's ideas and vision. We performed detailed research of other software belonging to the same domain and referred to multiple use cases.

This phase itself took us a whole 2 months to complete. But in the end, We emerged out with a concrete idea and vision regarding the software.

Challenge 2: Presenting an Appealing and Engaging Gantt Chart.

Gantt Charts are a visual representation of Project plannings and generally hard to understand or comprehend. We needed to come up with a simple and understandable presentation for the same.

Our Solution:

ChromeInfotech tried and tested various third party Libraries/tools to obtain the perfect look and presentation. After several failed attempts which also included compatibility issues, We were able to acquire a Gantt Chart that represented Project schedules intuitively and appealingly.

Challenge 3: Timely Support and Maintenance

Our dedicated development team and Our Manager put in a lot of efforts to accomplish this. They worked in shifts and sometimes even beyond working hours to accommodate Our Client's software with constant support.

We also deployed short term and temporary solutions for any issue( known as patching). This helped us to take control of a situation for the time being and then eventually come up with a proper and permanent solution.

Final Outcome

After overcoming all the challenges, We were able to successfully come up with a Robust, High performing and Bug-free “Field Service Management Software.” We took into account all Our Client’s requirements and delivered a product which satisfied all the expectations of Our Client.

As a result, We built a long-lasting and trusted relationship with Our Client with Prospects of repeating business in the future.
