Terms of reference for the development of business applications
The presence of a business on smartphones and tablets of consumers expands its opportunities to increase conversions and increase customer loyalty. The first step to creating an effective commercial application is the development of a well-thought-out technical task.
What is included in the service
TOR for the development of a business application is a voluminous document that records all aspects of the project.
Analytics of business processes, assessment of the market situation.
For a more accurate setting of the goals and objectives of the project, preliminary studies of the company's product and its market niche are carried out.
Description of application functions.
What and how should happen on the screen when the user presses certain buttons. What services should be available, what information is visible.
Methods of monetization.
If it is not an online store or a service application that is being developed, the project payback schemes are prescribed in the TOR - display of advertising, subscriptions, donations.
Devices and systems.
A list of smartphones and tablets, as well as versions of Android and iOS operating systems on which the application should run.
Low-detailed prototypes of UX design screens to understand the planned user paths.
Budget and projected payback of the project.
Interaction with third-party services, integration of corporate identity elements, user data processing policy, etc.
Why do you need a technical task
The TOR for creating a business application performs a number of functions.
Formalization of requirements.
From abstract ideas, the wishes of the customer turn into concrete tasks.
A clear statement of the task leads to its clear execution. By pre-writing all the functional requirements for the application, you can avoid rework in the development process, thereby saving the budget.
Working through and coordinating the terms of reference, the project manager works closely with the client. Constant interaction avoids misunderstandings in the vision of the future finished product.
Development time planning.
Many business processes in the customer's company may depend on the end date of the application development. Breaking deadlines is an extremely undesirable phenomenon. Realizing this, the project manager of the performing studio, based on the TOR, draws up a detailed Scrum scheme for working on the project, during which he reports to the client.
The TOR describes in detail the functions of the future product, after which the costs of their implementation are calculated - the salary of employees, payment for working software, etc.
