Stenströms and Forbytes teams started the project from the Discovery stage to choose the right digital transformation strategy. Stenströms got a clear understanding of the project structure and obtained all documentation necessary for the development stage: project scope, schedule, budget, team structure, technical approaches and more.
According to the project plan, Forbytes software development team needed to digitalize the production process of Stenströms custom-made shirts (Made-to-Measure, or MTM). Previously, retailers used a paper-based form to create unique shirts with special measurements and style for their clients. This form was scanned and sent to Stenströms office in Sweden first, and then to the factory in Estonia. The process required a lot of time, lead to mistakes in measurements, and became a bottleneck for company growth.
In four months, Forbytes team finished the MTM app according to initial business requirements. To ensure work transparency, we used Jira for setting requirements and tracking time. This provided Stenströms with full control over project progress.
The new app is connected to required information flows and after testing will be integrated into the business. The expected benefit – the number of produced Made-to-measure shirts per week will double.
