Consultation and requirements capture

At the start of each project we make sure that we understand all of your requirements from a commercial, functional and operational perspective.

To do this we use a system called viewpoint analysis which is based on the premise that any system can be viewed from a number of different angles (or viewpoints).

So rather than starting from the premise that ‘I want a system to do the following’, viewpoint analysis starts from the premise ‘What are we all going to do with the system’.

Each Wide Area project includes:

  • Stakeholder review
  • Extensive consultation
  • Detailed requirements capture

This process ensures that each stakeholder within the client's organisation is considered and non-functional issues are covered such as hosting, security and maintenance. We adopt this practice to minimise risk and ensure that our clients understands the true cost of ownership - we aim to avoid surprises at all costs!

Project planning

Once we are satisfied that we have captured all of your project requirements (commercial, functional and operational), we will produce a project plan that will include a key set of milestones, together with a series of tangible deliverables. Project time-lines can also be agreed.

Project milestones will map the implementation process and identify dependencies between tasks, on external services or on contributions from you.

The plan will typically include a series of delivery milestones which give you the opportunity to sign off the project in a stages rather than in one go, at the end. Our aim is always to eliminate risk and avoid surprises.

Project delivery

Your project will be delivered using an online application that lets you track progress, comment and feedback to our development team.

Where appropriate, each project delivery milestone will be made using a live web environment. This approach allows you to sign off on all usability issues such as performance and load times before launch.

Your project will be delivered using an online application that lets you track progress, comment and feedback to our development team.

Where appropriate, each project delivery milestone will be made using a live web environment. This approach eliminates any risks associated with a big deployment at the end of the project, and allows you to sign off on all usability issues such as performance and load times prior to project launch.

By getting you to sign off the project is phases, we avoid any risk of significant change requests at the end of the delivery process, keeping the project on schedule and on budget.
It also removes any large scale deployment processes from the end of the project, and all associated risks.
By getting you to sign off the project is phases, we also avoid last minute change requests at the end of the delivery process, keeping the project on schedule and on budget.
Our change control process will keep you in control of your project at all times.
