There are a variety of platforms and technologies available within the business application market, however we prefer to use either ASP.NET or PHP to implement our designs. Working within either of these disciplines we have evolved solid and robust design patterns which allow us to produce code in a consistently resilient and robust way which compliments our agile development process.

The Process Working with the IT service function within Peyton and Byrne, we designed a series of business applications to standardise the production, delivery and reporting functions within the organisation - taking all aspects of the business process into an online format. In addition to providing web services for staff, we also created a mobile interface for customers to make reservations at a number of the Peyton and Byrne restaurant outlets. This service was also provided with a web based management interface for authorised users to confirm bookings via both email and SMS services.

The Process Working with the client at our premises we executed a pair programming phase to build the initial prototype of the product to the exact business requirements. The prototype underwent serveral iterations of development focussing heavily on the deal ticket interface and ensuring that reporting functions were aligned to both sales manager and broker’s requirements. Once the prototype was sgined off, we were able to move into the development phase with client input through regular business review sessions to ensure that any issues or bugs could be prioritised effectively either completed or moved into the next iteration. The product took advantage of live currency feeds to enable users to constantly manage exposure, risk and margin calls in addition to being able to place deals with real-time data. The integrated CRM enabled the sales team to work much more closely with the traders and brokers to elimate previous separation of concerns between departments and bring the business closer together by creating a common interface for transacting with clients at every touch point.

Thomson Reuters IT Service Request System We develop business applications and software systems that transform productivity and efficiency for our clients

Thomson Reuters came to us to provide a solution to an increasing backlog of service requests across a workforce of over 50,000. Requests were being submitted across a myriad of MS Word and MS Excel documents scattered across their corporate intranets. We initiated a period of analysis and presented a report to all form owners, this was used as the platform for our proposed solution.

Key to our success is blended agile development and a streamlined delivery process. We prepare customer/user journeys and personas – these define the audience and their interactions with the product.

Case study @

The Process Using our Blended Agile Development techniques we developed a system that enabled system admins to create and update all forms, line managers to action all requests and users to intuitively make service requests through a web interface. A sophisticated form builder controls all types of input field, tooltips, validation and conditional branching. All requests pass through a workflow engine, all users have a personal dashboard. Email alerts are distributed for all requests and scheduled reminders are used to clear any static requests. The application has had a significant impact in reducing calls to IT Support and results in few requests being lost.
