Challenges Handled by BOP Team

The delivery team had to interact with many departments during the project. Allocation of tasks, understanding the requirements of various departments, and communicating with each one of them was a challenge. However, the team managed to resolve the issue by the effective utilization of the project management platform which enabled them to maintain sound communication with the client.

The implementation of a project management platform helped resolve these issues as it enabled our team to maintain sound communication with the client. We made sure to read the brief carefully and adhere to the instructions provided by the client and hence managed to complete the project without any hitch.

Requirements for the Inventory Catalogue Management Project

The client wanted us to revise the company catalog and ensure all features were up-to-date. Whenever there was the inclusion of an additional inventory, we find the data for missing inventory from the manufacturer’s website.

Apart from this, we were also assigned the task of providing metadata and SEO support to their e-commerce websites. We also handled the functionality and running of their e-commerce services.

The client updated all information regarding their inventory on a Google Excel spreadsheet. Additionally, the team was also part of the client’s project management platform. All communication took place through the channel, including the assignment of tasks. BackOffice Pro had to share the spreadsheet on the project management platform once we completed the job. This eased the distribution of information to different departments.
