Colleges use systems that are designated for specific purposes – like Assignments, Announcements, Mails, and Printing Systems etc. With the advent of smartphones and tablets, colleges are intending to have mobility solutions that can keep the students updated with data from different systems in one view. The portal dashboard solution will ensure the one-stop view of summary information from all the supporting systems.

Product Development Partnership

Customer conceived the product idea to build a student dashboard which would pull information from heterogeneous sources that would enable students to effectively communicate, collaborate and enhance their learning skills.

Customer partnered with Congruent to design and build this product. The product is built in two flavors: SharePoint based Dashboard and ASP.NET MVC 4.0 based mobile web site with different backend systems – either local Database based/Cloud based web services.

The product has different modules to help users with emails, socialize, track assignments, plan for individual improvements to name a few.

Congruent managed the entire project in typical waterfall model. An extensive requirements analysis phase followed by exhaustive design sessions setup the base for the product development phase. Customer had UAT in phases taking stock of the proceedings during the course of development to plan for their sales and deployment cycles.
