Internal communication platform proposal for ACME

A new, more agile way to communicate for members of your team

December 16, 2019
Attn: John
Version: 2

 

What we will do

You need custom software to improve your company’s internal communications.

You’re a big company, and you need a comprehensive, cloud-based instant messaging service that, broadly speaking, allows your workforce:

  1. Send and receive large files.
  2. Make phone calls and videoconferences.
  3. Sync data to and from your project management tool.


First, John, we’d like to thank you for trusting Quoters.io to handle this project for you.

Here is a proposal that we believe meets all your needs.

Table of contents

At Quoters.io, we propose a project with the following characteristics:

Required features

Based on the requirements defined by ACME and specifically by John, app features will be divided into seven categories:

  1. Instant messaging features.
  2. Features for sending large files in formats such as video, image, snippet...
  3. Calendar integration.
  4. Project management software integration.
  5. Ability to make calls or hold meetings remotely.
  6. Implementation of statistical monitoring tools.
  7. Any other specific requirements indicated by ACME.

Technology 

App will be developed with the latest technology on a MEAN* environment that will be hosted by a high-quality, private hosting provider with 99.99% availability.

This hosting provider will be scalable to support load peaks, with the possibility of expanding with additional servers and load balancers if necessary.

Phases and validations

We work using SCRUM methodology, which is based on the flexibility to incorporate changes regardless of the phase the project is in.

Our proposal includes a series of phases that will coincide with the implementation of each of the app’s critical features. After each stage, we’ll test and validate the feature before it is tested by you. Once that phase is approved by the client, we’ll proceed to the next one.

This way of working allows us to develop the app agilely, reducing the margin for error. And certain design changes can even be incorporated if necessary.

*MEAN is the acronym for the different technologies to be applied: MongoDB, Express, AngujarJS and node.js

Project phases

Here is our proposed schedule for your project:

 

Phase

Duration

 Project kick-off2 weeks
 Wireframing/Design7 weeks
 Development9 weeks
 Test and debug4 weeks

The duration of these phases is approximate and subject to modifications, especially if there are structural design changes, or critical changes in some version of the operating system that affect the management of resources on the phones (memory, storage, etc.).
