Case Study: A website for Life Science industry
Based in UK, this client is a consulting agency providing service to Life Science industry. The client
needed a comprehensive website portal comprising various functions such as website inquiry, user register,
events searching and content management. In addition to successful implementation of these required functions,
Nova also enhanced the scalability and maintainability of the product to a great extent.
As the client requested the website to be integrated with CMS feature in order to
simplify the configuration and management, we suggested the client adopt DNN framework
to build up the website. Under this framework, our main tasks were to create Pages
and Models as well as the correspondent Skins, then bring them together to realize
the requested Portal. This would require constant communication with the client
to clarify the requirements and business logic/flow in detail. We managed to meet
the client's requirements by customizing relatively simple modules with DNN's
own features and developing new DNN modules.
As the client lacked of IT experience and the specification, we had spent sufficient
time on the commutation with the client to lead out the necessary information on
one hand; on the other hand, we also helped the client to finalize his work flow
and business logic with our constructive ideas and advices. The client himself gained
new knowledge and skills through this process and expressed his appreciation for
our work in the email at the end of the project.
When approaching Nova, the client was a little worried about our services and quality,
because the client has never try any outsourcing services, and it was his first
time to work with an offshore team. He had no idea about how to document the requirements
and specification, how to facilitate the project progress, and how to monitor the
team's performance etc. He even didn't know how to set up the web site. But our
following performance and service reassured him. We helped the client creating specification,
in the meanwhile kept smooth communication with him about project progress; we sent
weekly report to indicate the team performance and project status. At the end, the
client gave us highly praise and he mentioned that he would definitely come to us
if he had another project.
The client had received a website which meets every piece of his requirements. He
is considering to further our cooperation by bring enhancements of the website and
upgrading the DNN to the newest version etc.
