Design a software to fit enterprise-level operations

Employee turnover is far more complex than it seems at first glance, especially within big companies. Therefore, as a starting point, we have determined the business logic of the status transition tree. Then each status of the implemented structure was interconnected with the relevant approval person. As a result, after a user’s validation, the employee’s status is automatically changed at the scheduled time, which allows updating the budget promptly.

Deliver statistics for headcount fluctuation analysis

Since data analysis is a vital basis for further planning, we have provided access to the stored forecast & actual results. All results are available on the user’s dashboard and are supported with easy-to-analyze charts and tables. The data visualization serves to bring users insights, compare outcomes and optimize budgets for next periods.

Perform a holistic business analysis stage to meet budget restrictions

MVP stage had a strict budget, therefore the client chose a fixed-price approach. Since the FP approach is based on predefined scope and project requirements, business analysis was the initial mandatory step. Additionally, the main MVP feature of automatic employee status transition had many pitfalls and required more clarity. The feature list was reviewed and scope modernization was applied in close cooperation with Michael, which allowed us to provide a realistic estimate for budget & timeline restrictions. And, what’s more important – resulted into meeting those estimates and delivering the product on time.

Focus on UX design & wireframing to use MVP budget efficiently

Addressing MVP limitations within the design stage as well, we’ve focused on delivering an intuitively understandable UX design. Then, instead of creating a custom UI design for all screens, we have used wireframing, Material UI and generated a few color scheme options. This optimization allowed us to save time for other crucial activities within development and business analysis stages.

For me, it was a great experience to delegate the entire development process to a single full-cycle development team. I had a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve as a result of the MVP stage, and the team worked on this challenge to help me achieve my goal. From business analysis and design to the final delivery, the team was very flexible and attentive to my preferences. They took ownership of the technical solutions and their implementation giving me an opportunity to focus on the business matters rather than the technical ones.
