Shinetech built an offshore development team with on-site project support to assist in product development. An experienced project leader in London, who also served as a business analyst, was assigned to work directly with Avant Garde, while also managing the development teams.
As part of the process, Shinetech began visiting various race tracks with the client to better understand user expectations and the user experience. In accordance with Agile practice, each developer on Shinetech's team was a project quality stakeholder and had a clear understanding of overall system objectives and the project status.
Following the information-gathering phase, Shinetech’s lead developers established the main app framework and architecture and developed the app modules. The teams had weekly meetings with Avant Garde to show demos, collect feedback, and define the next sprint and task. The project leader ensured both the onshore and offshore teams clearly understood the goals and requirements for the app, and were able to provide ideas and solutions through meaningful communication without language barriers.
The Track Day 'G' mobile app was released in early April 2016. The app incorporated a telemetry algorithm that tracks and analyzes users’ race performance and calculates everything from speed and acceleration rate to G-force and slope. The app provides predictive lap timing reports, dynamic vehicle profiles, and a session data analysis summary, complete with graphs and satellite views.
Users can share and compare their results with others within the app and also through social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
This collaboration is just the beginning of a strong relationship between Shinetech and Avant Garde, who has expressed interest in working with the Shinetech team for the second development phase of this project.
