Everest Delivers a Media Planning Framework
Our client is a leading media planner whose web-application platform provides the framework for planning and tracking media campaigns, among other services.
Media-campaign planning and execution is time-intensive and requires significant manual work that is highly prone to error — including collecting quotes from scores of vendors and applying specific business rules to different media types. In addition to being challenging for planners, the manual work is a serious obstacle to data consistency and quality — and turnaround times. Taking a full week to plan a campaign was not unusual.
As the in-house team focused on core-business planning and execution, the client contracted with Everest Consultants to develop and maintain the application framework. Everest’s scope of work included:
- Analyzing the business requirements and designing the work flows
- Building the core components of the framework for reusability
- Testing and verification of the application with real-time data
- Distributed teams and multiple stakeholders
- Release cycles developed in accordance with stakeholders’ priorities
Technology and Tools
- PHP and MySQL
- Google Maps API
- Responsive Web design
- Cloud-based file management system
Our risk-based testing knowledge and experience enabled us to help the client deliver a relatively bug-free product within their time, resource, and budget constraints. In addition, the finished project:
- Reduced media-planning time from 40 hours to 15 minutes
- Reduced product backlog meant increased velocity for added features and releases, helping the client achieve its time-to-market goals
- Automatically exported files to PowerPoint and Excel
- Reduced the time needed to fix defects and for regression testing
- Achieved a defect-removal efficiency rate of more than 95%
