Our Delivery Processes

How we design and deliver webstores on time, on spec and to budget each and every time.

Solid Project Planning

247 Commerce adopt a structured approach to project planning which recognises eight distinct project development phases. From defining detailed requirement specifications to approval of a fully prepared and tested ecommerce platform, and then beyond, we guide and support clients through every stage of the project lifecycle.

Agile Development Methodologies

Our team adopt a distinctively collaborative approach to ecommerce development and integration projects. We use Agile methodologies which are designed for rapid, iterative planning and development cycles and deliver solutions which evolve through the combined effort of cross-functional client and agency teams.

JIRA Project Management Tools

We rely heavily on the Jira project management system from Atlassian to organize development work. Jira is used for task level scoping and planning and provides complete access to sprint boards, tickets, comments, attachments, as well as a view of code commits.

Maintenance and Optimisation

We don't stop at ecommerce site design and development but extend our services into ongoing site security and maintenance too. We'll continuously optimise your site's performance, implement timely upgrades and security patches, while always providing the highest levels of site and server security (including regular backups of critical data).

Agile Development Methodology

We use Agile methodologies for most major software development and integration projects. Agile development is a software development process which accounts for unpredictability by allowing for changes to be continually implemented as clients are provided access to multiple iterations of the solution, which is delivered early and often.

Members of Agile development teams perform various duties and self-organise in a way which encourages adaptation, flexibility, an evolutionary development process for the project, and the frequent delivery of pieces of working software. This means clients are able to change their requirements for the project as pieces of it are completed, and those changes are planned for as part of the Agile process.

Our Project
Planning
Framework

Ecommerce projects typically feature a development lifecycle with eight distinct phases

Explore

Our early engagement team will meet with your team to explore the options available to you for your new ecommerce platform.

Plan

Highly qualified Magento specialists ensure the functionality you require is explored, defined, tested and delivered.

Design

A creative "kick-off" captures all the critical information including your objectives, customer demographics, user personas and aspirations.

Build

An incredibly talented group of developers look for the most robust solutions to give you the functionality and results you need.

Test

Our testers QA against the original specs to ensure sites are the highest quality, both operationally and visually.

Deploy

Our early engagement team will meet with your team to explore the options available to you for your new ecommerce platform.

Plan

Once the new online store has been thoroughly tested on a staging site and is exactly as you want, it's time to go live.

Optimise

After your site has gone live, we can advise you on how best to optimise your store to increase sales and improve efficiency.

Extend

Extend your platform with new features, functionality and capabilities, fully customised to integrate with your back-office processes.

Agile Values &
Principles

The Agile values and principles stipulated in the Agile Manifesto form the foundation of agile development. The goals are lean processes and flexible adaptations to change.

The Agile Values

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

Principles behind the Agile Manifesto

We follow these principles:

Jira Project Management Tools

Jira Software is an agile project management tool that supports any agile methodology, be it scrum, kanban, or any other unique flavour. From agile boards to reports, users can plan, track, and manage agile software development projects from a single tool.

All project activities are logged in to a central database and each activity goes through a number of workflows. Workflows are used to control the status of the project as well as the rules by which it transitions from stage-to-stage.

Using JIRA adds speed to project delivery and ensures the most efficient and effective involvement of all stakeholders.
