The history

Originally this tool was created as a standalone application in the 90s with the aim to deliver the best project management solutions. Being the first and the most recognized management product, it gained worldwide blue-chip customers such as Toshiba and Hitachi, etc. After 10 years of success on the market, founders took a decision to transform it into a web-based SaaS tool. Today, this web tool is continuously developing with new features and solutions creating an increasingly powerful and complete system.
 

The team

When the client came to us a part of the back-end was functioning and written with Python. So, we started with building a front-end team that consisted of 3 UI/UX developers, a manager, and a business analyst. Later we added 3 back-end developers, 1 devops. Then two QA engineers joined and helped to develop a test plan and automate the most e2e and unit tests. Finally, we built a cross-functional team that completely satisfied the product owner.
 

The goal

The goal was to combine the reliability of the original application with new practices and management solutions. The new tool had to consist of several interactive products enabling easy creation and management of projects, a delegation of tasks, and control of their completion using various workflow visualization methods.

The cooperation

We started with building redesigning the application and began developing front-end. After 8 months of development and since many releases performed perfectly and on time, the customer asked to take care of all back-end, so we added back-end developers and devops to continue the development and support of all the server parts.

Design
