Code4Tag’s policy has always been what we call “Tripple P”… And by “Tripple P” we mean PARTNERS, PRODUCTS, and PARTNERSHIPS. Also, we have always had the growth of our internal and external partners in the centre of our attention. After all, their growth translates more or less directly to our growth.
Moreover, there is a good reason why we call our clients our partners. We operate within two partnership models. Namely, Project Management and White Label (code4tag.com/products-and-partnerships/) and in the process of cooperation our clients stop being cases in our portfolio. They become potential for further cooperation for Code4Tag and we become potential for further cooperation for them.
Needless to say, we treat our clients/business partners in a very individual way and always try to cater to their very individual needs. Thus, depending on their unique requirements, they can engage in cooperation with us on two different levels:
- as our internal partner [i.e. experts cooperating with Code4Tag]
- as our external partner [i.e. marketing/interactive/SEO agencies, software houses, VCs, hospitality, telcom, fintech, end-recipient of our products, etc.]
Today, we would like to talk about the latter of the two.
- What does the whole process look like?
- Where do we start?
- What steps do we take on the way?
- How do we monitor progress?
These are some of the questions we will be trying to address.
The whole process starts with an open, free of charge call. This initial, one-off free consultation of up to 30 minutes allows us to determine what our potential clients’ expectations are.
If everything goes well during the first open call assessment, it is followed by our in-depth technological audit. The audit is aimed at detailed diagnosis of our clients’/business partners’ specific needs which, in later steps of the whole process, ought to help us implement the most adequate solutions. The audit package typically consists of a minimum of 10 man hours a month. If need be, however, several such packages can be purchased. The open free of charge consultation of up to 30 minutes and the 10 man hour audit together constitute the basis for what follows… and what follows is a detailed analysis and a report on the work that needs to be done.
Now, it is time to get down to some core tasks. We start off with a project document which consists of several parts such as client’s/business partner’s requirements or the shape of the final application. Based on this document, we are able to create a kind of a “road map” including several milestones which ought to be reached on the way. Obviously, progress can be easily followed using tools such as Pivotal Tracker (pivotaltracker.com) – a cloud-based project management tool designed specifically to aid collaboration between teams and monitor progress throughout the entire process of work on a project. At this stage of a project lifecycle, we typically work in one-week sprints according to the Scrum management framework (i.e. an agile project management framework facilitating structure of teams and managing their work utilising a set of values, principles, and practices) (www.scrumalliance.org).
As you can probably imagine, after all this work is done, we deliver a demo of the product to the clients/business partners. Nonetheless, the whole process doesn’t necessarily finish there as we always leave space for perfectiong our products.
