Project management tools

Web based tools to assist project management processes became useful since they can decrease the amount of time spent for building charts or for merging spreadsheets created by multiple individuals into a single large file.

Another fundamental role is consisted from the fact that our web solutions can also interact with databases containing documentation, analysis, tasks, bugs or technical cases leading to a complex solution which can produce reports fast based on all the intelligence gathered up to a certain point.

Content management systems

WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Typo3, Magento, Prestashop or Opencart are open-source content management systems maintained by the open source communities which deliver out-of-the-box functionalities.

Most popular ERPs are delivering multi-user management features for areas such as accounting, human resource, manufacturing, product life cycle management, project management, customer relationship management, data services and access control features and so on.

Customer resource management tools

Porting projects - changing platforms, frameworks or content management systems - from one technology to another but maintaining the front-end features
Merging projects - enterprise application integration - integrating functionalities from two different projects or solutions
Technology conversions - moving from Microsoft technology to Mac OS X, Unix, Linux, Cisco, etc.

Management processes

We’re focusing our expertise on the following processes as the UK market demands increased attention on how to improve their potential.

Project sustainability

The ability of a project to maintain its operations, services and benefits during its projected life time.

Requirements gathering

Obtain full list of requirements from the product owner or stakeholders and predict with accuracy most of the technical dependencies which will be involved.

Risk management

Identify the risks and then minimize their potential by consulting over them with the developer during daily stand-ups.

Budget management

Choose cheaper service providers and train existing technical personnel to perform in-house maintenance.

Change management

Run change projects for periods over 6 months+ without disrupting current technical processes and by absorbing the expenses gradually.
