The Britannia Living website was developed several years ago and has been incrementally improved by multiple development teams. The client, Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA), had a series of requirements that they wanted to implement on the website; these ranged from small amends and fixes to new features such as a 'where to buy' module on product pages and a new navigation menu. We also recommended that the codebase was brought up to date by refactoring existing code and using modern development tools, like Composer, to manage dependencies. We recommended this essential work to enable faster and more reliable updates in the future.
We held a discovery and planning workshop where we listed all the requirements, along with our recommendations, as user stories. We then prioritised the backlog and produced a sprint plan based on the available budget.
Our Agile team of UX designers and developers then completed the work, whilst keeping the client involved in the entire process. Given the amount of legacy code, we knew working on the website would be a challenge and our test plan proved invaluable in checking that requirements had been met without impacting existing features.
