Tribe365® wanted an app that would play a vital role in its digitally-led High Performing Teams Programme by:
The app would work on the basis of anonymous users giving quick responses and answers to questions from their respective employers about:
The organisation would then use these crucial insights to implement improvements to the culture and working environment
Measuring organisational culture and team performance on a constant basis hadn’t been achieved before, so the Tribe365® app would be a world-first!
Initially, the client envisioned a desktop solution, but we mutually agreed that it would work much better as an app offering unlimited ‘on the move’ mobile usage and a great user experience.
The app would have to facilitate real, honest employee feedback on organisational culture that would be entirely anonymous (thereby eliminating the possibility of the user being questioned or challenged by directors, managers or colleagues about their comments).
The key technical challenges would be around how to:
Various formulae and weightings relating to each question would also be required to enable the automation of assessments and reports.
Users would also need to be able to anonymously give their colleagues ‘kudos’ for being good team members each day.
Chetaru has a set process in place for approaching new systems and app concepts:
We link with our clients to build process flows around how everything fits together
We draft an initial module break down and how we feel the system will work. There is a schedule of costs, outputs and timelines
Client agrees to initial costings, timelines and outputs
We develop initial plans and initiate controlled testing between Chetaru and the client to see what works and what doesn’t – and to make crucial alterations based on those findings. Most of the significant adjustments required are made at this stage in the process.
Initial plans are great on paper, but we always need to be very responsive to the need for changes – after all, the proof of the pudding is in the eating!
All updated functionality internally released for final internal and client testing – and we make tweaks where necessary to make sure that the end product is completely spot-on
All systems go! App goes live!
This is a set process, sure. And it works extremely well. You get to know what works (and what doesn’t) after building 50+ innovative and robust native apps built from scratch!
But that’s not to say that we’re ‘stick-in-the-muds’. You can’t be in this game. So, at Chetaru, we continually:
The time this project took until first release, from start to finish (full app design, build and release to the public)
