User Problems

User Problems

The website for Castle & Things was visually dull. The client sought to improve the user experience for both members and for the general public. EB Pearls designed the end product uniquely to implement both interactive pictures and thumbnails that appeal to users.

Process

Like all our engagements, we started with a structured conversation in the form of a project kick-off workshop, whereas a team we worked with Castle & Things to gain an understanding of the considerations and unknowns so that the project was well informed.

Backlog creation

Backlog creation

We developed a prioritised agile backlog to make release and iteration planning easy. This communicated all the things the team plans to spend time on. Once the backlog was created, it was regularly maintained to keep pace with the project.

During this process, the feedback from the clients was collected. This resulted in adjusting, adding, design and workflow sketches and so on. This also allowed us to understand what tasks to prioritise and also to track the project progress.

Design Sprint

Design Sprint

The design sprint of this project assured all the team members were on the same page which resulted in a successful collaboration of the team. Furthermore, performance, plan, and progress were shared with the client through the prototyping and testing of solutions.

Internal Testing

Internal Testing

To get feedback and improve further, internal testing was done. After the testing, the most important goal we kept on our minds was easy navigation, allowing users to reach the desired screen, as well as the uniformity in the screens.

Once the product owner described the objectives of the back log and sprint, our scrum team performed all of the steps in the particular sprint. Additionally, the development team planned the essential tasks to meet the sprint goal.

Learning

Learning

One of the major lessons we learned was that even if we are implementing something new to the audience, we need to be flexible enough to cater to the other audience too. We also created too many business rules for avoiding loopholes, that made it rigid for the admin or the sales agent if something changes.

After the website is developed, we regularly communicate with the clients and we are always available for future maintenance and are committed to ongoing support. We are monitoring the features that have been released so that we can fix any issues that arise.
