Business Architecture

  • The Cleveroad team has designed flexible and customizable Workspaces within the project management tool. This module allows users to have free access assigned to them being in the role of a workspace admin, and enabling them to invite other team members to their workspaces. In addition, users can create other types of entities within the workspace, depending upon their permissions.
  • The Station module is implemented as part of the Workspace. It allows users to strategically design their Workspace and align with their current objectives, facilitating a seamless workflow across all the departments and achieving improved productivity.
  • The Lists with Tasks are available in the solution. It enables users to create multiple lists within one Station, which is convenient for breaking down complex projects or multifaceted operational tasks into more manageable components. Each list can represent a different stage, aspect, or category of work, so that the team members can efficiently prioritize and manage the scope of tasks.

Product Essentials

Core features and modules revealing the logic of the web-based project management system.
Workspace structure

The project management system provides a flexible and customizable workspace structure to meet each business’s needs. Users can create workspaces tailored for clients, departments, and programs. Within these workspaces, they have the ability to establish stations dedicated to specific projects or operational tasks.

To prevent data loss, the system allows to create documentation repositories directly within the workspaces. Users also can create custom lists to organize your data, complete with powerful calculated attributes. These lists can also be linked to create structural hierarchies and facilitate lookups.

Development in Detail

  • We leverage an individualized development approach, facilitating seamless collaboration within a "mixed" team. This covers close cooperation between customer stakeholders and our employees, resulting in a highly efficient project team. The customer required an outstaff team. The Cleveroad experts were managed fully by the client’s company. Our team has successfully implemented such a unique project management system, handling all the arising challenges, and delivering qualitative software which satisfies the needs of the Middle Eastern market.
  • Our Business Analysts and Solution Architects conducted in-depth market analysis and research to differentiate the product’s specialized interface from the standard layout. The experts reviewed the competing products and their user interfaces, defined challenges and frustrations of the target audience, and composed functionality based on user needs and potential for distinction.The primary research helped the platform gain credibility of customers and engage them into using the highly-oriented solution growing the value for the business users.
  • During the Discovery phase, Solution Architects, Business Analysts, and a Designer accompanied by the customer-side Tech Lead and Project Manager have produced a comprehensive set of deliverables to lay the groundwork for the project. These incorporated a feature breakdown list (FBL) complete with estimated timelines, functional and non-functional requisites, a project plan, and a Gantt chart designed for budget oversight. The process also delivered strategic assets like Value Stream analysis and Competitors analysis, all contributing to a well-planned project creation.
  • As a key step in our engineering process, we handled the challenging right-to-left UI requirement. This involved building our interface elements for key views such as Grid, Kanban, Gantt, and Calendar entirely from scratch. Each component was imbued with its own right-to-left rendering logic, addressing the complexity of the United Arab Emirates script. To guarantee the Arabic translation accuracy and layout adjustments, our UI/UX designers collaborated closely with an Arabic translator from the customer side to provide the most valid user interface design rendering.
