Building the Performance Hub
1.3 Creative started at the end of 2015 as a response to the clear signs that the world is moving into the fourth industrial revolution. This time, it’s digital. Our vision is to help secure a positive outcome for society as it moves through this unprecedented rate of change.
Client passion: 1.3 Creative’s mission is to create an accelerated and inclusive culture of digital innovation for good. We aim to always remain open to change and improvement, as we take our modern digital agency forward into the future.
Client problem: 1.3 Creative is a rapidly growing web design and development agency with a team that is spread throughout 4 countries and 9 cities. As part of our transparency initiative, we wanted a highly configurable tool built around some of our unique processes.
What we delivered: We took our Google calendars using the the Google Calendar API and augmented them to deliver additional and valuable insights that are shared across the team. Using emoticons, the team can now see if they are mixing up their time in the correct portions between work, meetings, learning, experiments and open slots.
Allocating tasks across a remote team can be difficult, so we then focused on the ability to create, assign and manage tasks with a powerful reporting capabilities. We went even further and added a notifications system and built an email engine to deliver summary reports to the management of 1.3 Creative.
This solution was built using the tools within our RSA (Recommended Solution Architecture) including Angular, Material Design, User Stories and Agile delivery methodology.
