Client and Business Goals

Pyramid

Client: An innovative US-based company specializing in collegiate sports data management.

Business Goals: The client aimed to revolutionize the way collegiate football player data is managed and utilized. Their objective was to build a comprehensive, user-friendly database for football staff at various colleges. This database would serve as a centralized platform, facilitating the tracking and recruitment of football players seeking to transfer colleges. The ultimate goal was to create a tool that saves time and resources for college football staff, while providing accurate and easily accessible data.


Challenges

Spiral

The primary challenge was the client’s lack of detailed project documentation or wireframes, combined with their limited experience in software development. They required a sophisticated, database-driven web application with specific features like filterable, sortable, and searchable database options, custom column calculations, user-specific customizations, and robust admin control over user permissions. The project demanded a high level of technical expertise and creative problem-solving to translate the client’s ambitious ideas into a practical, efficient application.


The Solution

Solution

Our team approached this project with a meticulous and collaborative mindset. During the Discovery Phase, we worked closely with the client to develop project documentation and wireframes, ensuring a clear understanding of their vision and requirements. This phase was not only efficient but also sparked innovative ideas that enriched the project.

We built the web application from the ground up, incorporating all the desired features:

  • A dynamic, easily navigable database that users could filter, sort, and search.
  • Functionalities allowing users to mark database rows and perform custom calculations.
  • Personalized user experiences with saved customizations and secure login features.
  • Comprehensive admin controls for managing user permissions and data access.

Throughout the process, we maintained constant communication with the client, integrating their feedback and new ideas seamlessly. This innovative solution has significantly enhanced the client’s business operations, leading to increased customer satisfaction and revenue. In terms of costs the client mentioned in the Clutch review the following: “Already made back my money in 26 days with more customers“.

Describe their project management. Did they deliver items on time? How did they respond to your needs?
I was a demanding client. They kept everything incredibly organized and always stayed on schedule. I was always adding in new things, and they made sure that the changes were made while also keeping me aware of the effects on the overall schedule. I never had to worry about anything.

What was your primary form of communication with Exore LTD?
  • In-Person Meeting
  • Email or Messaging App
What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?
Their adaptiveness and overall skill. I truly believe there is nothing I could ask them that they could not create. And, their attitude of always being ready to fluidly change the direction or feature made my life so easy. I pretty much just had to think of what I wanted, and they made it happen.

Are there any areas for improvement or something Exore LTD could have done differently?
It truly is hard for me to think of anything that they could have done better. In the spirit of trying to help them, I can say one thing on my end that was tricky at the beginning was getting used to all of this project management software like slack or Asana.
That really isn’t in their scope as developers, but I think I could have been a more effective client at the beginning if I understood the threads, where to navigate to files, etc. out of the gate. And let me confirm that this was not really a problem at all!
