On The Cloud

The Client

It is committed to provide sophisticated and latest reviews of the HR Cloud software and create an ecosystem for genuine product buyers by supporting it with whitepapers, blogpost, market analysis. The main aim of the product is to “reduce the time to make buying decision with the latest information about the market”.

The Challenge

Many a times the L&D or HR team fails to find the list of various software vendors which they might need at a single place. These software may be from the categories like People Analytics, Talent Management, Video Conferencing tools, Learning Management Systems, Course Authoring Tools etc. The task of searching them on google is time consuming and cumbersome. Hence client wants to build a web portal which can allow users to find all these products at one place and compare them for the better understanding of features, pricing, reviews, etc.

The Approach

After hearing the requirement, Knowzies team proposed a deep research and study phase to the customer to validate the market and real needs of the customers. This was done through a lot of secondary research and by comparing some similar sites like Capterra, G2App, GetApp to name a few. Post that, the feature list was prepared based on the real needs of the intended target audience and a detail product road map was prepared. etc. During the development phase, there was a lot of improvisation in-terms of feature list, GUI and usability aspects of the product. The agile development methodology helped us to redefine the original product road map and our flexible approach helped to build the right set of features without too much of re-work. The approach of writing user stories one after the other was the key highlight of the project.
