everywhereIM is contacted by someone from the healthcare sector that is struggling with a problem or has an idea for an app, after which a meeting is scheduled. The Director and a Medical Advisor are always present at this meeting. Some customers have already worked out the idea, while others are still open to input. By all means, everywhereIM thinks along with the project.
The quotation is based on information shared during the acquaintance and on additional information provided. After the acquaintance, the Project Manager consults two in-house Developers to estimate the functionalities and hours needed to realize the project. The offer will be elaborated on and discussed. We prefer to come by for a visit. However, considering the current measures, this is done via an online meeting. Based on that meeting, the quotation will be adjusted or signed.
The Medical Advisor and Project Manager draw up a Functional Design (FO) in consultation. The Project Manager sets up a project plan. As soon as the customer approves the FO, the development starts.
The Project Manager monitors the deadline and regularly checks the progress with the Developer. In the meantime, a graphic design is set up by the designer. The Developer will work towards a first test version. In this phase, the Developer reports the progress daily to the Project Manager. The Developer will test the app before releasing the first test version.
The Project Manager ensures that the first test version is tested on various iOS and Android versions by at least two testers. The test results are recorded in a test document. The Developer then processes these test results. After that, the first external test version is delivered to the customer.
The customer provides a test document with their findings. The Project Manager examines these test results and assesses whether it concerns a bug or a functional adjustment. The Developer will fix bugs. Functional adjustments will be included in a ‘Change Request’ (CR). The Developer estimates the number of hours needed to realize the CR, and the project plan is adjusted accordingly. After realization, the second internal test version is first delivered, and secondly, the second external test version. If bugs still occur after this test round, the test phase will be rerun.
