Objective

To build a platform for digitally tracking and management of documents, assets, tools and facilities using QR code, RFID and Geo-tracking technologies.

Why Footprints

User Needs

  • Manage the documents being processed by number of departments and hence ensure faster completion time
  • Track real time geographical location of an asset and limit the movement area
  • Maintain the facilities and assets in a building and ensure timely replacements and repairs

Challenges

  • Building a framework which can accommodate various kinds of asset tracking and management needs
  • Handling data from different types of data sources containing geo-location, barcode, QR code, RFID
  • Satisfying user specific data analytics needs with the customisable dashboard
  • Providing the organisation admins to audit the changes with upmost granularity

Development Practices

Peer Reviews

Peer evaluation is as necessary as self evaluation. Every pull request raised to the repository is reviewed by the peers to keep typos and trivial bugs at bay. It also ensures that the everyone in the team is following similar conventions while coding.

Unit and Integration Tests

We believe in delivering highest quality of the work. Mobiux is built and stands on that principle from Day 1. We make sure that every code push to the repository has gone through unit and integration tests.

Unit test covers most of the minor functionalities of the product, but we integration tests again to test the UI/UX and the product functionalities. We automate the integration tests using nightwatch.

Code Quality Analysis

We use SonarQube for the code quality analysis. It makes sure that the developers follow the most common conventions, duplications are minimal, tests have been run with enough code coverage. It also warns of potential security vulnerabilities.

Continuous Integrations and Deployments

Continuous integration helps keeping the code quality checks before the new code is even introduced into the repository. Tests and Sonar analysis is part of this process at Mobiux.
A peer review is only done only if all the tests and the sonar quality checks pass. Post the peer review, the new code is merged with the existing repository and the automated deployment pipeline triggers. This ensures that the live system is always updated with the minor features updates.
