Bamboo Solutions is a successful provider of technologies that augment the SharePoint platform all over the world, as well as of more than 70 products offering a broad range of enhanced capabilities and solutions that maximize the value of SharePoint deployments.
Sigma Software assignment was to develop a mobile version of Project Management Central (PMC) application – Customer’s flagship among other SharePoint-based solutions widely used for dealing with project management related tasks.
Project Management Central (PMC) is a mature SharePoint-based solution designed to effectively track and manage tasks, costs, deadlines and resources with unlimited customization possibility on the Client`s side.
The main challenge was to choose between native app and pure HTML 5 web solution with responsive UI.
Initially, it was planned to adapt PMC site to mobile devices by means of graphical interface. However, after careful pre-study Sigma Software team suggested to create a so-called “hybrid” of the mobile and web solutions. Through a special wrapper a native mobile version of the site was bound with the web client written in HTML5 and jQueryMobile.
This solution streamlined the development costs and reduced the time-to-market. Sigma Software team also developed a new design concept for mobile application.
The achieved result was perfectly in line with Customer`s expectations.
