To solve these problems, existing campaign manager needed improvement.

- “Fixed price” model was used. We fixed and agreed on the set requirements, timeline and cost.
- DMP demos were held on a bi-weekly basis. This allowed us to get feedback instantly and to adjust the deliverables
- Weekly project status report kept our client aware of the completed tasks and plans for the next week.
- Quick, regular sync up calls with business analyst made the client feel more confident and clarified requirements to our engineering team without any interruption in development.
