Planit helps clients ranging from Nestlé to 10 Downing Street plan their events.
Planit realised that their project planning could be improved, and some of it automated. Which would allow them to service more clients and give a better service to their current ones.
They also realised that if they built the software well enough then they could sell it as a service to their clients.
Planit approached us with the idea to create a bespoke software, initially used by them and once it gained traction to be expanded to be sold as a software that other event planners could use.
HOW WE DEVELOPED THEIR SOLUTION
Planit wrote a brief of what they wanted to achieve, together with a sketch of their vision.
We took the brief and broke it down into a list of high level features.
And then in a workshop, with lots of tea and biscuits, we took that brief, the high level features and used it to plan out the project and the platform.
We answered high-level questions like, what are the goals of the platform? And specific ones, what do we want users to do when they hit the first page and what do we want them to feel?
Once we had a clear vision for the application, we took time and budget constraints and made a plan for:
- The best technologies to use
- Which feature set to implement in the MVP
- A final budget and timeframe to deliver
