Self Storage Application Service Request Workflow

Friday, January 24th, 2020

Introduction and background

For our client 10 Federal, which is a US-based company, our team had to work on a project known as Work Order. Work Order is aimed at self-storage facility operators who are in need of an efficient and effective work order system. Work Order would help them manage their day to day orders as well as maintenance tasks they need to complete in order to run their self-storage facility business.

The project required us to build an SAAS-based system, meaning that it will be a web-based, on-demand software that runs on the provider’s servers. It has been designed in such a way that it will have three major deliverables in it. These deliverables include –

  • a super admin web application

An all-encompassing web application for the admin so that they can run Work Order smoothly and work on complaints as quickly as possible.

  • a client-side web application

A web application that can be accessed by the clients so that they can use Work Order effectively and manage all their tasks from one platform.

  • a client-side mobile application

A mobile application for the clients to use so Work Order can be easily accessed from anywhere, anytime.

Challenge

For this project, our main challenge was that we had to work on Work Order, keeping in mind the complex processes involved in maintenance related tasks within self-storage facilities.

On top of this, we had to design the architecture of the system based on microservices to support SaaS model. The complex processes, combined with SaaS model was challenging our aim of building a system that is fast, smooth, efficient and user-friendly. Our team had to take time and learn to fully understand the complexities of the self-storage facilities processes so that we could deliver a practical, sustainable solution.

Solution

Dot Net or .NET was used to develop the Work Order system, including the admin web application, the client-side web application, and the client-side mobile application. Dot Net is a software framework that is developed by Microsoft and is used to develop software that can run on Windows-based operating systems.

A SaaS based solution was our approach so that the client can sell the software to clients, and clients can access it with ease. All they would need is a browser and an internet connection for the web application, and a smartphone with an internet connection for the mobile application.

After our team successfully completed the project and provided solutions for Work Order, the system was equipped with the following features:

  • Management of maintenance works
  • Allocation of tasks to property managers
  • Subscription management, and more.

Now, with Work Order, self-storage facility operators can organize their tasks better, and improve their efficiency and productivity. Put simply, the system helps them to run their business operations better.

How DevOps Changed the Face of Application Development

Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

Today, the top UX design firms are investing heavily in advanced technologies that can help them in the faster development and delivery of products. As competition rises, the need to stand out from the crowd by delivering high-quality and reliable apps in shorter periods increases.

To achieve this, DevOps has emerged as one of the best technologies for the best app design agency developers, allowing them smooth integration and deployment. We discuss the benefits of DevOps below:

· Better build quality

Through DevOps, companies can combine operations and development smoothly, thereby creating a suitable environment where build quality can be nurtured. It brings together development-centric focuses, including performance, features, reusability, and so on, along with ops-centric focuses, such as maintainability and deployability, thereby bringing together the best of both worlds to positively impact the build quality.

· Accelerated time to market

With DevOps, apps can reach your target audience faster, thanks to Disciplined Agile Delivery. Rather than having the development team building and testing in an environment that is separate from the operations teams working on productions, DevOps allows every change to be delivered to a production-like environment, thereby ensuring that the code is deployed to the production environment.

This puts away any chance of complexities that arise due to misunderstandings and miscommunication between the two teams, thereby accelerating the entire production process. This allows the best UI UX design services to cut down release time so that the app can reach the audience faster, and you can stay ahead of your competitors.

· Automated and reliable processes

With DevOps, you have access to various tools and principles that can help you develop apps through automated and reliable processes. This makes way for a better application quality as your teams can thwart many drawbacks of version control, continuous planning, continuous integration, configuration testing and management, deployment, as well as continuous monitoring.

Thanks to this automation, you don’t have to worry about the chances of errors caused by time-consuming manual processes. This means that you can develop, package, and deploy an app with increased ease, accuracy, and reliability.

· Improved team collaboration

Last but not least, DevOps leads to improved team collaboration between development and operations. Initially, these two teams worked separately on their specific tasks, which was not very efficient or productive. Now, thanks to DevOps, both of these teams understand the other’s workflow and processes better, thereby enabling a culture of collaboration and increased efficiency within the app design agency.
