Deliverables Schedule

[Ed] BaseCamp Website


BaseCamp is a collaboration and project management tool. At the start of the project, Ed will provide Rattler with login details and a walkthrough of the system. This system enables us to collaborate and identify changes early in the development process when they are easier to fix.

[Ed] Initial wireframes for store-facing features


Wireframes for:

Store Account Details
Submit Application
Enter Sale

Should be able to reuse most parts of login and landing/branding implementation here.

[Ed] Initial infrastructure hosted in development environment

Approx. 6/8/2015

Development environment will be located at http://rattler.insightfuldesigns.com.

[Ed] Initial wireframes for customer-facing features


Wireframes are roughed-in prototypes of the finished product that can be used to explore workflow and user interface, but are not yet connected to an underlying framework.

Customer Home Page (i.e. Landing/Branding)

Account Details
Account History
Payoff Schedule

[Rattler] Feedback on initial wireframes


Rattler to provide feedback to Ed regarding initial wireframes and workflow.

[Rattler] Establish accounts with selected third-party services

Approx. 6/15/2015 - Approx. 6/18/2015

Need to establish active accounts with:
Employment verification service
Banking verification service
ACH debit service

[Ed] Initial wireframes for administrative features

Jun 22, 2015

Wireframes for:

Store account administration (create, update, delete/deactivate)
Renter account details
Store account history
Renter account history

[Rattler] Feedback on administrative wireframes

Approx. 6/27/2015

Functioning risk analysis module


Gathers data from third-party services and makes the appropriate lending decision for the user's bank data. At this point, will probably be using test data provided by the third-party services to verify success and failure flows (i.e. approval/denial)

ACH Integration Infrastructure in place

Jul 6, 2015

[Ed] Acquire and deploy SSL Certificate

Approx. Jul 16, 2015 - Approx. July 17, 2015

SSL certificates carry an annual fee. The initial cost for the certificate will be billed separately from labor billing. Typical costs for an SSL Certificate are $1-200/year.

This certificate is crucial for protecting customer's financial data when submitting applications, making payments, etc.

This item is dependent upon Rattler acquiring a hosting account as shown on the Key Decision Points timeline.

Key Decision Points

[Rattler] Evaluate wireframes and workflow

Approx. 6/8/2015 - Approx. 6/12/2015

This doesn't have to be an in-depth review, it is intended to gather high-level feedback regarding the workflow and user interface appearance. It's vital to get any feedback at this point in the project in order to avoid costly rework down the road.

[Rattler]Finalize decision on third-party services

Approx. 6/15/2015

Employment verification service
Banking verification service
ACH debit service
