Avanga 2.0: better functionality, more opportunities
Our next step was to test our MVP to understand whether this tool could bring value to our employees. We collected our employees’ feedback and detected some functional shortcomings that caused the need for product improvement and the implementation of additional modules:
Leads. Leads module contains a database with data about our potential clients. With its help, our sales team can find information about prospects interested in specific services and also see all the closed and lost deals. This option is helpful for building a solid database of leads, reaching more potential audiences, and ensuring the sustainability of the business.
Invoice. The module automates the payment process and provides the income/spending report overview. Thanks to the automated process, our accountants don't have to spend much time and effort verifying electronic documents. Additionally, this module prevents the loss of payment documents, as all of them are archived and can be easily found.
Clients. This module stores important data about customers in one place and is responsible for showing the current status of each client. This option allows employees to improve their efficiency in terms of building long-lasting relations with the company's clients and better addressing their needs.
Apart from that, we decided to change the technology to improve our MVP. For the second version of Avanga, our developers used React because it is easier to maintain and flexible due to its modular structure, which simplified the process of making changes.
Avanga 2.0 also has a Chrome extension that allows project managers to monitor their team’s actions in real-time, schedule chat sessions, and customize and rearrange tasks faster. Additionally, Avanga 2.0 includes Stripe integration, which collects and processes payments automatically. One more peculiar feature of Avanga 2.0 is that it is powered by AI technology to optimize business processes within the company.
We are planning to work on the product’s AI further so that it will help our employees optimize their workflow by automating routine tasks, improve sales forecasting accuracy based on the previous data, offer buyers more fitting services based on their behaviors, and more.
