Challenge

Civil Survey Tracker is a hosting product created for a customer based in Griffin, USA. Customer wanted to provide hosting services to surveying companies where they can manage their projects, staff, time, invoicing, history and accounting.

Basic features required by the customer are as follows:
  • Survey project management and easy tracking of surveys.
  • Client information management, online registration, ordering and live project status.
  • Project time management and staff time management with cost using punch in - punch out.
  • Barcode scanning.
  • Update project status from PDA.
  • Field Note Scanner.

Since the client operates in a very demanding environment, he has to update features constantly and provide customization based on client requirements. As it is a software as a service, implementing customization for each customer and making them compatible with new features was a very challenging task that our team performed. Other challenges were to create graphical job viewer, attachment explorer, crew calendar and conversion of application and UI to latest framework and designing concepts.
