FTO: Improving processes for Information Systems with RedmineUp

FTO is a consulting company, which has been implementing and maintaining information systems for businesses based on the 1C platform for 16 years. Their team has also been implementing and supporting BI solutions.

Project description

The project implied the setup, modification, and optimization of Redmine.

Redmine is a free, open-source, web-based project management and issue tracking tool. It allows users to manage multiple projects and associated subprojects. It features per project wikis and forums, time tracking, and flexible, role-based access control.

Business challenge

Our team set up the server. We installed RedmineUP plugins and expanded their functionality (we added the ability for individual users without administrative rights to manage the tags). In accordance with internal rules, we:

  • Improved the process of working with tags
  • Made reports on relevant parameters and templates
  • Optimized Redmine and added the ability to preview downloaded documents in xlsx, xls, docx, doc, and pdf formats, as well as images
  • Made a selection of converters from text to htmlp and set up the conversion
  • Launched and configured the plugin for visual editor and preview while editing tasks, adding comments and articles to wiki similarly to Word

Value delivery

We uploaded reports and task lists to xlsx, connected and configured the editor so that it would be convenient to edit wikis and the contents of tasks.

We made formatting more understandable — by analogy with Word or Google Docs. The client had a large volume of ready-made wiki pages in which markup was used — and it was important to save all this. As a result, we installed the plugin and optimized the current pages so that they were displayed without a glitch.

We installed the Agile plugin from RedmineUP, set up the correct operation, and developed a tag management system based on the Redmine Tags plugin. We also set up the xls feature, added the ability to preview PDF documents, and view Word and Excel documents. We optimized server operation and assisted with configuring server architecture to stable operation.
