Major Changes Made

Sprint Module Action Category Feature Description Value to Client
7 Administrator Module Added Primary
  • Adding values to lead form
  • Removing fields from lead form
This module allows Vimbox Administrator to have the flexibility to modify its Sales lead if there's new changes in services to the company. As the company is looking to expand beyond Singapore, there will be more move options available to customers, resulting in a need to modify the current Sales Lead form. The addition of this module gives the Vimbox administrator the ease and flexibility of adjusting the required fields of the form on his own without the aid of IT.
7 Administrator Module Added Primary
  • View all leads and status
This module allows Vimbox Administrator to have an overview of leads with their status of completion. The manager can better gauge the company's schedule to identify, at any point in time, the status of all leads, so as to get better a foresight of the company's sales in the near future.

The team has experienced what it’s like being involved in a full project life cycle. We picked up hard skills such as project management and web application development. Not forgetting soft skills such as internal communication within the team and communicating with external parties such as our supervisor and sponsor. We have also witnessed our solution value-add to the company’s business process, making the project a fulfilling one.

Product Owner's Testimonial

Individual Reflection

No matter what you plan, unexpected thing will happen. This is undeniable. Always be ready when it comes to any changes.

I have learnt more about Javascript on how it helps to deliver dynamic web content to better facilitate user interface and user experience.

Xue Ning
I have learnt the importance of scrum methodology as it helps us to manage and responds to change efficiently.

Yu Sheng
Although my role is a backend developer, I have realised that there have been too many occasions where frontend development have a significant impact on the backend. Therefore this allows me to pick up frontend development to fully understand the function scope so as to produce more comprehensive pieces of codes.

Qing Wan
Every user has different intuition. User testing with a variety of users is important in understanding your target audience.
