The client desired to migrate and update the on-premise SharePoint MDF (Marketing Development Funds) management application to a modern Microsoft 365 solution.
The custom MDF application was migrated and modernized from an Angular application to a React-based SPFx solution. This involved migrating existing data into M365 SharePoint and performing a lift-and-shift conversion of the custom application. Working with the client, enhancements and improvements were defined and implemented during the application conversion. These changes encompassed tightening up the request creation form and process flow as well as improvements to the reporting and fund tracking capabilities.
- Enhanced request form including better error messaging and required field handling.
- Improved workflow process to be streamlined and eliminate unnecessary stages.
- Created new stages for tracking of funds when in interim states.
- Added the capability to track and report the funding source and request type.
- Updated and improved process flow of information to and from the OEM, re-activated the ability to allow OEMs back into the MDF application to do direct reviews and approvals of a request for funds.
