Supporting the development of a solution for time management and periodic assessment of doctors
Challenge: The client wanted to develop and launch a new module for one of their products and were looking for an experienced technology partner.
Approach: Our partnership evolved to further projects, each starting from a design workshop. Products were then collaboratively estimated, developed, and delivered.
Result: Together, we delivered three solutions which allowed Allocate to achieve significant cost-savings, much shorter time to market and more flexibility in resource allocation without losing on quality.

Solutions we delivered
We started to work on eRoster – application for doctors’ time management, integrated with Outlook. Its most important functions are planning, time settlement and reports for managers.
E360 web application
We worked on several projects for Allocate simultaneously. One of the biggest is E360 – a web application, which helps to manage the periodic assessment of doctors. We provided a dedicated team responsible for the development process and quality assurance. Thanks to E360, the evaluation process and creating surveys are much easier.
A service used to send text messages to nurses informing them of available additional shifts within their hospital. Allocate decided to develop its own texting service, based in the cloud so that all of their products could use it. It was said that after the first release about 100 hospitals will use it, sending 12 mln text messages a year.
Architects for Allocate and Future Processing held a workshop at the beginning of each project to design the solution from the very beginning.
It was then estimated and developed using a very collaborative process that ensured the product was delivered on time to a very high level of quality.
