THE PERFECT MAM SOFTWARE, IN FOUR STEPS

The BLAM user interface has been designed by information architects and operational specialist with a focus in simplicity in operation, but the user experience may be completely customised for specific business and operational needs. BLAM is architected to enable entirely bespoke web-browser user interfaces and journeys to be created without fuss or expense. From simple re-branding to a fully customised user experience BLAM is the most readily customisable and accessible management & workflow core available. For a fully customised user experience we typically initiate a four step approach to the design and implementation:

1. WORKFLOW DEFINITION

The executive has established a vision for Programme, the business benefits have been defined and the objectives set. As the project is mobilised the first step is to understand the operation and requirements. Blue Lucy’s operational analysis team, who have rounded expertise honed at the sharp end of content production and technology operations, will gather operational and technical requirements from user groups and managers. If it does not already exist the ‘as is’ operational workflow should be worked up before work begins on the target ‘to be’.

2. USER RESEACH & INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

Having defined the processes the software is to support operationally, Blue Lucy then investigate the functionality in operation, defining the user interaction. We interview users groups about how they work, and would like to work to allow us to design the information architecture of the interfaces based on this input and best practice. The output being simple wire-frame designs for review and additional input from stakeholders.

3. DESIGN & BRANDING

With functional requirements and workflow diagrams established, we now have a structure for the user experience, the next step is to design the way it looks. We can create a completely custom user interface for each client, incorporating a new look and feel, with a style based on your likes and dislikes, or following existing corporate branding guidelines.

4. DEVELOPMENT & REALISATION

The final designs are then applied to the lightweight thin client browser based HTML-5 & CSS-3 interfaces which control the Blue Lucy functional services via standard and open REST web services interfaces. The Blue Lucy functional service components have been architected so that they are completely abstracted from the controlling interfaces meaning that building entirely bespoke workflows and user interfaces isn’t costly or risky.
