AfriGIS is a leading provider of Graphical Information System (GIS) solutions and Location Based Services (LBS) in Africa. Advances in Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies have led to a wide range of possible applications for GIS and LBS and therefore an increase in demand for AfriGIS’s services and products. For AfriGIS to maintain its current growth rate it needs to meet all new and existing client and market demands. The constraints of short delivery periods, high end products and limited resources requires an effective use of workflow, content management (including development support documentation), process management and a clear definition of roles and responsibilities. A business process content management system for software product development is to be developed and implemented at AfriGIS. The Stage-Gate Process will be used to evaluate new projects/ideas and Alfresco (a shareware CMS) will be implemented to manage the relevant content and to automate workflow.
