    months and they released a new version every six
    months with actual development time being three
    months.
  • The Company needed to build workflow
    functionality into the product in the next
    version in the short span of three months.

MORSE BACKGROUND
  • Morse is a leader in the document and electronic
    record management solutions business in the
    United Kingdom. The Company provided both
    technical consultancy services and off-the-shelf
    products.
  • The Company's product is being used extensively
    by public sector and government organizations
    that traditionally need to publish vast amount of
    information on their website.
  • The Company makes continual efforts at product
    improvements and releases a new version every six
    months.

MORSE BACKGROUND
  • Although the standard features in the product met
    most of the customer's core requirements, the
    Company also delivered extended functionality
    requests by customization.
  • The source of most customization requests lay in
    the variations in business processes followed by
    each client. The Product Managers increasingly
    felt the need for building workflows into the
    product to increase the power of the application
    and offer more flexibility to end-users. Workflow
    automation was therefore given top priority in
    the roadmap for the next version.

THE PROBLEMS
  • Morse had a half-yearly release cycle. The actual
    time for coding was a maximum of two months.
    Besides workflow automation, the roadmap also had
    a few other high-priority items that had to be
    included in that version.
  • The company operated on a total staff strength of
    about fifty but this included all divisions.
  • The Product Managers drew up an initial list of
    requirements for workflow automation. The time
    estimate for implementing, testing and
    documenting this set of functionality came to
    four man-years. The company's technical team did
    not have enough technical staff to build the
    requirements in three or four months.

THE PROBLEMS
  • Initially, the Product Managers pared the
    workflow functionality list to the bare minimum.
    A month went by in development of these features.
  • But the Product Managers were none too happy with
    the resultant prototype. The workflow features
    were basic, even primitive. They were also rigid
    and couldn't be easily customized by end users.
  • The Company's customer base consisted of large
    organizations, especially those from the public
    sector. They would expect more sophisticated
    features.

THE SOLUTION
  • Considering the time and resource crunch, the
    Product Managers decided that it was more
    sensible to purchase a workflow component or
    plug-in that was already available. The Company
    opted for Skelta Workflow .NET Developer Edition.
  • Skelta Workflow .NET was a perfect fit. Skelta
    provided a completely embeddable workflow engine
    that they could quickly integrate into their
    application.
  • It's framework offered wide scope for
    customization. Most importantly, it could mesh
    invisibly into the existing application without
    standing out as a third-party component.
  • The ROI was significantly augmented by Skelta's
    affordable pricing..

    Edition. The key factors
  • influencing this decision were

    integration with any software application or
    product

THE EXECUTION
  • Morse deployed three resources for integrating
    Skelta with their product.
  • Customization was required to a certain extent to
    cater to specific areas of
  • integration. The time taken to understand the
    technical documentation, add custom code and to
    integrate was three weeks a total of nine man
    weeks. Skelta provided email, chat and online
    support during the implementation.
  • Morse had achieved in nine weeks what would
    otherwise have taken four man years a net
    savings in time of forty-six man months.

THE RESULT (ROI)
  • Morses savings in terms of development time was
    41 man months.
  • The ROI considering the company's average pay for
    a development engineer, worked out to 850, or
    8.5 times their investment in Skelta and the
    costs of implementation.
