- CASE OF STUDY -
All Over Print application (AOP+ app) is intended for online shop owners who would like to work with company that provides Easy Print on Demand Fulfilment and Worldwide Dropshipping services.
What is AOP+
AOP+ All Over Print is an application where store owners will be able to upload their original artwork, which will then be placed onto a variety of printable objects to offer on the store, including shirts, hoodies, mugs, flip flops, tank tops, phone cases, cushion covers, flags, leggings, etc.
The application is integrated with ecommerce platform Shopify.Currently we are completing integration with Etsy and starting integration with Woocommerce and Amazon
The Client came to us with Upwork. He is director of a Garment Decorator / Print-on-demand Fulfilment company based in London, UK. Company does print-on-demand dye-sublimation (All Over Print) & direct to garment products and dropship to their customers with their brand.
They wanted to get independent from the vendor for printing and build their own solution with a Shopify AOP+ application. Client had already written specification for development which was used for estimation.
The project has been estimated at 6 months follow-up support. But due to weak feedback from the Client (he travelled a lot) it was completed in 9 months, as we had to redo design concept, therefore markup and some features on the backend.
Once AOP+ application released, we continue developing new features and integrating new e-commerce platforms on the Client’s demand.
Initially Client had well documented project specification, so he chose Waterfall Model.
Pricing model was Fixed price.
After deadline was missed, Client switched to Agile Model, as he realised that for his complicated project:
- daily cooperation with a team is a must
- developers better understand business idea for their proper implementation
- changes in the requirements may occurs even in
the later stages of development
Before proposing solution to the Client we analyzed the project specification from features and technology perspectives, estimated a ballpark number. After that, we sent a proposal that completely satisfied the Client’s needs.
Next, we carried out a whole complex of works on project management, business analysis, design, frontend, backend development and testing.
