Customer Driven Development
One of the many reasons our National Conference is so popular is because of our Customer Driven Development sessions. Over the past eight years, this “Customer Driven” philosophy offers an innovative way of proposing your “wants and needs” into the future of the AgVantage system. We offer special sessions where our customers bring us the enhancements they would like to see in the software. Customers get a chance to vote on those suggestions via our website whether they attend the conference or not.
Upon closing the voting, we meet internally and take the top three of so suggestions from each product line and begin the development and design phase for those enhancements. Those results are published in our July eNewsletter. In addition, customers come to us frequently to propose additional enhancements. Our Customer Driven Development Process has become the backbone of the AgVantage Software development process.
AgVantage applications can be described in a number of ways. We have our legacy (back office) applications that reside and run natively on the IBM Power System, the web applications that also reside and run within the OS on the IBM Power System, and the PC applications that are installed on 32 or 64 bit PCs running Microsoft Windows. We also have a number of applications written for both the Android and iOS operating systems.
AgVantage® V7 is the newest production software, released in April 2010. AgVantage® customers have the ability to pull enhancements to this software each and every day, if desired. This is available through a web application we have developed and is extremely popular with our most innovative customers. However, most pull once a week and some not as often.
Software changes are fully tested, including Unit, Regression and Integration testing. The Developer and Support Specialist work closely together to ensure as smooth of a transition as possible when code changes are released. Customers are allowed to test an enhancement, if desired
Our design team, including our customers on a regular basis, is also a part of the testing process. Our development team is cross-trained to program on several applications and within many skill sets.
