School Payment System

Client & the Business Case:
The client is a leading IT solution provider for K-12 school districts in the US for Parents, Schools and Districts to easily manage all School Payments – From Registration fees to school fees to School Lunches. There were multiple online products available for Fee Payments, Lunch Payments, Free or Reduced Application, Integrated Online Forms. The need was to upgrade and merge these products into two applications one for the patrons and the other for the Admin. There was also the need to upgrade the technology and recreate most part of the products to make it simplified and more user friendly. Most of these products were hosted SaaS products that required a significant upgrade in terms of the functionality. To meet this initiative they found it appropriate to leverage Chimera's technology and prior expertise in handling similar applications, and outsource the need of their product to us.

Solution:
The initial challenge was to understand the existing functionalities of the product before proceeding to upgrade the system. Multiple client visits and frequent discussions with the customer enabled the team to quickly define the requirements for the changes required.
