Once we understood the infrastructure, we worked closely with the in-house team, joining all their project planning sessions so that we could work in partnership to create the upgraded version of the platform. Building the new enterprise infrastructure and ensuring it remained compatible with the older features was a major challenge – but we approached it confidently and with a clear agile methodology.
As a result, we were able to deliver a number of new features including:
- An access request feature for Lexus Partners with an approval and registration process
- A calendar
- Discussions, reminders and groups
- A platform to request, deliver and manage assets and collection between Lexus Partners
We created a separate server for processing long tasks, we fully rebranded the platform and we forensically reviewed
and improved the coding for the site. As we built new features we constantly referred back to best practice to ensure that the site would work smoothly and seamlessly.
Our team were able to add real value to this project through our specialist knowledge of .net and SharePoint, which allowed us to improve the overall infrastructure of the site, to optimise website performance and to write new onetime tools for fixing and migrating data using Aspera Connect.
