Quick start and first deliverables within two weeks
The client already had a number of customers that were ready to employ the product as soon as it was complete and stable enough for actual use. Our first focus was to create a dashboard, finalize and launch a full-fledged demo with stable basic features within a two-week deadline. We took on this challenge while the client concentrated on business matters. That's how the story began.
Integration with the client's in-house team and work processes
The full product had to be completed in collaboration with the client's in-house team. We had to operate under tight scheduling and speed things up whenever we could. The shortened delivery cycle was achieved by means of putting development on two parallel tracks. The in-house team, headed by CTO, would take care of the mobile app and the real-time sync service. Our team would focus on the back end and finalize the dashboard. On down the road, we scaled the team and took over the mobile app development as well. Within an endless request flow, feature prioritization helped us to set up planning and single out the features that really mattered.
Design of a complex client-server architecture for the Command Center
Microsoft .NET technologies in conjunction with Xamarin for mobile allowed us to build a consistent and flexible solution for distribution and management of tasks with subsequent reporting and real-time data synchronization. A number of auxiliary features were added to enhance convenience and productivity, e.g. GIS functionality for adding images and functional icons to events on the map.
Delivery of the solution to government entities
The outcome of this intense work was a product that went live to bring returns to the client and gather feedback for ongoing evolution. At that point, all the processes were set up. All it took afterwards was to follow the same pace—perhaps less intensely, yet just as steadily.

"Our project had to be completed under the strictest deadlines one could imagine. Our clients, mostly government entities, needed a reliable product, completed as soon as possible and reliably delivered afterwards. The project was a huge success. Regular releases and non-stop work were made possible by the skilled and competent engineers provided by MobiDev."
