Kunai began work on a discovery phase to map the customer journey and validate the tools, platforms, and development schedule for the project. Kunai also facilitated interviews with Client consultants to better understand their needs. This phase concluded with a low-fidelity demo prototype consisting of early sketches and flows.
Next, Kunai developed a clickable demo. This phase would flesh out the feature set for the next phase, a low-code demo as well as begin work on the back-end database solutions necessary to turn Client’s existing spreadsheets into the dynamic experience they were looking for.
Kunai opted to use a low-code provider to streamline the development process and allow for easier onboarding and hand-off. The team used Mendix to stitch together data from Client's digitized experiences and insights, client data, and third party benchmarks. Mendix made up the bulk of the UI tools and widgets for the project. Mendix widgets were developed in React to help integrate Tableau Viz, packaged JS code for Tableau filters, and implement export functionality.
On the backend, Microflows were utilized to obtain Trusten Tokens for database access from the browser as well as database modifications in response to changes in the frontend.
