August 2015 - Successful rollout of absence solution for leading European financial services company
03 August 2015
This already complex project had the added challenge of an extremely tight deadline with the project requiring completion in just under 4 months. Contracted to assist with the building of a new self-service absence solution for a leading European banking and financial services company, the solution was to be rolled out to various European countries, and required translation into three languages.
We are proud that the project was successful, creating a robust solution that worked well from day one and delivered on schedule. Key factors to the success of this project were:
- Sequencing the build order of the various components to maximise speed of build and testing.
- Maximising coding efficiency by reusing code and sharing code between components.
- Positive working environment with a firm commitment to make the project a success from all team members.
- Frequent catchup meetings between the our own and the client teams to review current issues / blockers.
The team was composed of both onshore UK based staff and resources from our offshore team, based in Pune, India. There were regular scheduled calls between the UK and offshore teams, with follow up email and instant messaging between the calls. The client expressed their amazement that so much could be achieved in such a short time.
