After the initial interactions with the client, we sat down with the client to understand their requirements in depth. As the interactions came to a closure, we realized that approaching the Drupal development project in a step-by-step manner is the best way to tackle the process as the demands are complex.
We discussed the details of the projects with the client, such as the features, the architecture, the development technology, etc. The client accepted most of our suggestions while they shared their preferences for the other ones. The further discussions we had helped us quickly finalize these elements as well.
As the project requirements became clearer and streamlined, what we needed was a reliable team that could deliver top-notch product information management system development. After evaluating the developers, we picked a team having profound experience with offering Drupal development services.
According to the insights that we have gathered through various means, we started working on the application. Our first task was to get the design right. For this, we considered the UI and UX of the application along with the system architecture and database design. The UI/UX took some time for development as we wanted to create an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for the software. As the solution is going to be used to manage extensive products, we wanted the best UI for the same. We went back and forth a couple of times to get the client’s idea perfectly for the design. Once that’s done, we went ahead with the development stage. As we were following the agile methodology, we broke the process into small, manageable sprints for easy and efficient development.
We also worked on the features and security part of the solution simultaneously to make it more seamless with the solution. When the development process ended we also tested the solution for efficiency, performance, and security, which helped us address the lapses rather quickly. As the solution was dealing with customer information, we also ensured that the solution complies with all statutory requirements.
After a thorough demonstration of the software and its performance, the client was extremely happy with the same. However, they shared some feedback, which we quickly added to the software, and it was ready for deployment.
The software makes it easy for businesses to manage their products. The product management capabilities are developed keeping in mind the varying needs of the business for efficient and timely management of products.
Our solution also makes it easier for the users to manage their assets using the application. It takes less time and effort to manage the assets of the users, enabling them to free up time that can be used for other purposes.
The application enables the users to distribute the product data from one central repository to other channels. These channels may include websites, social media, databases, departments, etc., as per the user’s needs.
The software we developed also supports an embedded link feature which makes it easier for users to embed links.
