PolicyMap offers a state-of-the-art data and analytics engine that supports companies in government, healthcare, universities, nonprofits, and libraries. PolicyMap hired Think Company to help the organization grow its business and launch new and ambitious features for its platform. The companies worked together to design, develop, and launch the foundation and systems needed to make PolicyMap’s product more effective.
Agile workflow to improve processes
Recognizing the benefits of adopting an Agile work environment, we helped PolicyMap improve their internal processes by showing them our workflow and demonstrating how we leverage collaboration tools like Jira. We collaborated closely with the PolicyMap team through a series of design sprints, constantly passing sketches and in-flight work back and forth.
Staffing a development team
We even assisted PolicyMap with their hiring process, identifying the developers that would be needed to integrate the new front-end work and support enhancements on an ongoing basis.
Enhancing the product interface
We worked closely with PolicyMap to simplify the product interface and unify the design language across the application to ensure a clear and consistent user experience across all features. In doing so, we were able to elevate valuable but elusive features while retaining ample real estate for the application’s focal point: the map itself.
A collaborative development process
Our developers and PolicyMap’s developers worked conjointly in the same codebase to build and deploy new features on the revamped platform. Additionally, we helped PolicyMap update their source control management with a collaborative review process in Git using BitBucket.
We frequently consulted on decisions that would increase key performance metrics, including the speed at which complex data renders on the map.
Building a digital foundation for success
PolicyMap now has the foundation and systems to enhance their product more effectively. By refining the user experience to be more intuitive, we were able to reveal insightful data in more areas of the interface. For advanced users, we surfaced previously hidden features and controls, providing more power to explore, learn, and share critical insights through the data and analytics platform. We continue to help develop and integrate front-end components into the PolicyMap system.
