To address these issues, our client decided to develop a modern custom cloud-based inventory management system.
They contacted Belitsoft, a custom inventory management development company, to rewrite their old IMS.
The legacy version of this software was desktop-based, which created no small number of problems:
We got this contract for a number of reasons:
Previous experience in both eCommerce and Healthcare domains
A quote that gave the customer maximum “bang for their buck”
Good reviews and references available online
The project began with a discovery phase. An experienced business analyst (BA) communicated with the customer to gather the detailed requirements
Based on these requirements, the analyst created interactive wireframes that let the client get a look and feel of how their future system would work
The BA also wrote a detailed Software requirements specification (SRS). When both the wireframes and the SRS were approved by the customer, the developers got to coding
As this project had an extensive discovery phase, an SRS, and a set of wireframes, the team developed it using Kanban development methodology and Fixed-price cooperation model
Our inventory management system developers have preserved the proven business logic of the legacy system, while completely redesign the UX. All of the existing features were transferred, and a few new ones were added
The project was developed in 8 months, three of which were spent on the discovery phase. Thanks to the detailed requirements and anticipating the possible change requests, the team was able to complete the project on time and within budget, to the customer’s satisfaction.
