0006445: Project XL - umbrella

DescriptionThe project XL "eXperience Lift" aims to revamp the user interface and total user experience of Openbravo ERP.

For this project we will use the term consumability as the focus of our efforts to dramatically improve customer’s acceptance of our products.
Consumability involves having functionality that can be used effectively
Highly consumable products enable customers to achieve :

- fast time to value
- get their solutions up and running quickly on our software
- deal simply and effectively with product maintenance throughout the product lifecycle
- Consumability looks beyond usability of a product in common usage when it is up and running but wants to cover the different phases in the product life cycle:
- Pre sales evaluation
- Installation
- Integration
- Configuration
- Up & running usage
- Upgrade
- Maintenance
- Deinstallation

Project XL should focus on those phases that have been identified as important for our and our customer's business. We should use our customer and product satisfaction data for this (see earlier in this document).
Ideas and focus areas that have come up:

- Effective data entry (see earlier)
- Master detail, think Yahoo Mail
- In grid edit
- More natural search, split indexed search and SQL based
- Combined searches
- Saved searches
- Portal style
- Modules, related to main object
- Guidance, help, e-learning from a module on tasks, processes
- Guidance on field and form level
- Integration, open APIs
- Googlemaps, customer location
- Chat
- Google Calendar
- Plug ins ins, e.g. Excel: “save-as OB Expense”
- Provide “Smart Linked Items”, which allow users to drill around the most useful functional links rather than just the data model relationships (example: from sales order to related invoices rather than from sales orders to sales order lines to invoice lines to invoices).
- Enable index based searches from Openbravo on Openbravo data as well as any other data source (company intranet, document management system, etc.) in order to make Openbravo the central cockpit of corporate searches.
- Sticky notes on transactions
- Comments and tags that can be added anywhere
- Work management for ERP transactions
- Integration with Collaboration tools
- Visual redesign overhaul
- Navigation
- Access
- Task based support, suggestions and notifications such as “Related Actions” from each screen that guide users through their most frequent tasks (example: create invoice from the sales order window)
- Home page, overview, dashboards, feeds
- Mobile ERP
- Expensess
- Approvals
- Warehouse
- Camera
- Messaging
- Help
- Synchronized marketing efforts
TagsNo tags attached.
