We were approached by S3 with an idea for measuring and improving compliance through the use of a web-based tool. The challenge that this project presented was the sheer volume of Outcome-focused Regulations to be assessed, the need to provide feedback and advice wherever gaps in compliance occur, as well as the need to measure compliance on an ongoing basis.
How we solved the problem
We simplified what was a complex set of business requirements. Prototyping was an important part of the design process, allowing us to collaborate closely with S3 to clarify functionality and workflow, thus optimising the user experience.
This was one of our first large-scale custom web application projects. The product was built using Django development framework and, for the first time, we based our frontend build on Twitter's Bootstrap. Both of these development tools allowed for an extremely efficient build.
The result is an easy-to-use tool that provides a clear, visual overview of compliance levels as well as where improvements can be made. Legal firms are able to provide evidence of their compliance measures and continue to improve their services through continual self-assessment.
