Involvement

Project Management Methodology

Agile, SCRUM

Scrum is one of the most popular Agile methodologies. It is an adaptive, iterative, fast, flexible, and effective methodology designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout a project. Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective accountability and continuous progress. The Scrum framework is structured in such a way that it supports product and service development in all types of industries and in any type of project, irrespective of its complexity.

Challenge

BGO Software had to implement a comprehensive and flexible facilities management software solution from scratch in order to replace the old system (Accendo) based on Silverlight technology. The requirement of the client was to develop an application with the same outlook and functionalities as the ones of the existing system, without making significant changes to the initial interface.

The biggest challenge for our team was to implement the same look and feel of Silverlight adding extra functionalities to SVG, plus pure JavaScript without using any external libraries. By utilizing the newest HTML5 (JavaScript + SVG) technologies our engineers managed to implement transitioning tasks and handle the complex graphical part of the project.

Solution

StackFM is a collaborative infrastructure management solution – CIMS, developed with the idea that highly detailed floor plans and maps contain all the data and successfully converts CAD Drawings and PDF Floor plans so that the platform can give the customer all benefits of a powerful solution.

  • Assets Tracking

Tracks exact location, dimension and more for an unlimited number of assets. Easy drag-and-drop manipulation on floor plans or maps, the system sends notifications when leases or warranties expire, seamless integration with work orders management. A dashboard view allows users to see multiple reports simultaneously.

  • Space Planning

Plans your space according to your needs with an easy to use graphical interface. Identifies available space on color-coded floor plans. Precise measurements and multiple planning scenarios. Custom space and forecasting reports.

  • Work Orders Management

Gets your maintenance under control with computerized maintenance management software. Creates work orders directly for specific assets, at a specific location, or independently. The user-defined life cycle allows for handling a wide variety of work orders; manages warranties, vendors and service contracts.

  • Activities logs

A centralized system to record and analyze daily activities throughout your organization, by creating log entries through various channels, intuitive and user-friendly dispatch interface and robust reporting and analytical capabilities. 

Results

As a result, BGO created a web-based application that could hardly be distinguished from the existing Silverlight system. We managed to mimic its look and feel and to improve speed-end response time significantly.
