SWAZILAND CTS MAINTENANCE

Swaziland CTS has been rolled out in Nov 2014 to monitor stock status of health commodities at different health facilities and warehouses. SIAPS Swaziland contracted SoftWorks to do minor modifications in data entry and reporting system based on country needs, monitor system health and database performance, regular backup of data and check quality of data.

SoftWorks are anticipating the following major tasks to be performed under the project duration –

  • Collect fault reports and troubleshoot end user issues related to the software use. Users will be able to communicate using Skype and/or E-mail.
  • Bugs found would be solved in consultation with the project staff and rolled out with proper documentation.
  • Add/remove new contents to the software in consultation with client. Contents might include template updates, menu & field label changes, data entry field modifications, validation rules implementation, upgrade existing reports etc.
  • Ensure version control of the updated software. We will be using Tortoise SVN (https://tortoisesvn.net) to maintain the different updates. Also every version will have accompanying Release Notes.
  • Update/upgrade back-end Joomla CMS.
  • Take regular backup of database and recover if required.
  • Submit monthly report on tasks performed.
