About Client:

Our client Caritas Bangladesh started its journey on January 13, 1971, it is a social arm of the Catholic Church in Bangladesh, mandated by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Bangladesh (CBCB). There are eight local Offices in eight regions which are Barisal, Chattogram, Dhaka, Dinajpur, Khulna, Mymensingh, Rajshahi and Sylhet.

The key objective was to create a strong digital web-presence through a digital approach and to advocate an informative portal that will keep all the official, employment, organizational records, user registration, CV field option and creations, application for a job, job bank and posting, etc. in one place. 

Strategy:

 

After getting full requirements from the client by face to face meeting. We as a whole team analyzed the feature list and developed users’ stories. We Selected the technologies ( laravel, MySQL etc). We Splitted full products with small features, made release plans and created milestones. We allocated a Development Team (how many developers will work). The design team created a mockup for confirmation from the client. Used case and data flow 

diagram with Implementation code and testing. Released the application after handling the requested changes. Created Product user guide and documentation. There were numerous stages which we created and shared with the client for necessary input and afterwards we blended all stages for conclusive discharge. Additional efforts had been given to prepare this web-based job portal.

Execution:

 

Firstly client’s requirement : Developers collected the full requirement from the client. Then our project manager and system architect analyzed the requirement and initialized the feature list. They selected the team and technology which will be used for developing the solution. Here 8 developers (4 backend and 2 frontend developers and 2 QA) worked on this project. The frontend team created the wireframe for better understanding. After confirming the wireframe from the client, the project manager created the ER Diagram, used case model and the project plan. In the meantime, the QA team created the test case plan. The project was splitted into 4 phases and set release plans for these 4 phases. Development team started implementing code and after completing the phase one QA team started their testing and development team moved to phase two.

 

After releasing the test result and fixing the bug, phase one was released and sent it for client’s feedback. This process was followed for the other three phases also.

After completing all 4 phases and their feedback we deployed the software to their live server and carried out other necessary steps for the environment set up. 2 days training to their HR department was given to operate the software with full documentation.
