Development Philosophy

Technical Basis

Latest technological developments and requirements will be integrated in our software, even if the complete software architecture and technology involved is to be completely refurbished.

We see a continuous update not as a mere pressure, but as a challenge to provide our partners with a learning management system, based on modern technology.

If required we also connect other products (e.g. virtual classrooms, webinar software) in our learning portals. This enables our customers to combine various tools to their individualle required learning surrounding.

Development team

Software-Architects, data base specialists and software develpers (e. g. Java)work together in crossfunctional teams to develop TCmanager's function portfolio further or are dedicated to particular customer specific projects.

Close cooperation and continuous exchange within the team is mandatory for the creation of premium and functional software.The flat hierarchy and uncomplicated communication enable quick decision and efficient problem solving.

Agile Software Development (SCRUM)

Fast and manageable planning and development cycles support fast results, so corrections and adjustments can be quickly tackled.

Iterative concepts are particular efficient in interdiscipline and cross-functional trams. Continuous feedback is immanent in the process and lifts our sound software development on a high quality level.

Front End - Graphical User Interfaces

Quality aspects of our software applications are not only the manifold and reliable functionalities for academies and learning professionals, but also their graphical representation.

We differentiate between the graphical surfaces for training administrators on one side, whose tasks are the organization of training and academy management, and web surfaces of portals for employees, managers and instructors on the other side. Portals and internet pages are designed based on the corporate style guides of our customers.

Naturally applications for mobiles and desktops will be tested on the the browsers and screen formats they have been designed for.

Tested Software Quality

Our thoroughly designed software tests are based on a structured approach. This way we ensure, that our software meets high quality standards.

Our test scenarios include:

  • Unit tests
  • Integration tests
  • Last-Tests
  • Performance-Tests

Employing the user perspective ensures not only the perfect functionality, but also an appropriate user experience.

Time reserves and failure analysis including thorough cause studies guarantee that our software runs extremly reliable.
