6 Release Roadmap Q&A
eCo Plus Enhancements Sarah Jones
eCo Plus Usability: Key Benefits Make it simpler and easier to use Enable more orders to be placed by eCo Plus To reduce the time taken to complete the order entry journey Improve order accuracy to reduce delivery delays Reduce the number of abandoned/cancelled orders
Pain PointsWhat we are doing Double entry of network ID and billing account Once entered, this data will now be pre-populated in subsequent fields Unclear about what information is required Adding hover text to provide help on filling out complex data fields Simplify wording in Service Catalogue/Bundles Remove clicks by pre-populating data from Etherway to Etherflow order Adding post codes to A and B end VLAN Delayed OrdersAdding Hover text to provide guidance on what information is required to stop delays later Missing out critical information on orders Making Third Party Name mandatory, and bringing it onto the main order screen Address MatchingAdding the address key to the returned list of addresses within the pick applet. Order Entry Pain Points
Usability Improvements screen shots For bundles containing a network product, the Network ID field will be filtered down to the associated order lines Once the Etherway order is created, the common data e.g. Network ID, Billing Account will be auto-populated for the Etherflow order When adding a spoke to an existing network/bundle, the Network ID will be blank and once entered, will be pre-populated in all related order line items Once the Billing account is selected, it will be pre-populated on all relevant subsequent pages. If the Billing account is edited, the change will flow to the associated order lines
Change wording to - ‘If Network ID blank, please select an existing network, if pre- filled, a new network ID has been created’ Adding Hover Text – ‘Where you want your circuit installed within the selected site. We need this information to ensure our engineer installs the circuit in the correct location’. Adding Hover Text - ‘Your onsite contact will need to be aware of What product has been ordered. Who placed the order with BTW on their behalf. That the visiting engineer will be from BT Openreach. Whether the site is ready, or which date it will be ready. The power requirements of the product ordered, and whether available now, or the date it will be available. The location where the equipment is to be sited, ensuring that access is available. If the equipment should be rack mounted etc, and whether the rack is available with sufficient space on it. The point of entry of the BT network into the building and ensure is access available. Potential internal routes through the building and the ability to agree these routes. Landlord/ Wayleave Grantor’s details for any internal routes or new duct entries if required. Provide details of site restrictions, safety requests, induction courses, out of hours working, parking or security restrictions. Details of a secondary contact in case they are off at time of survey, or when any work to be completed at site ‘ Usability Improvements screen shots For every save message on a page, add a hover message indicating the order will be saved for 48hours for editing
Adding Hover Text – ‘Is there a password we would need to know to gain access to site?’ Adding Hover Text - ‘Are there any dangers accessing this site that we should be aware of?’ Adding Hover Text – ‘e.g Power Station or Electricity Generating Site.’ Third Party Name will be moved to the front page under Site contact and will be made mandatory and we are adding hover text to say – ‘What is the name over the door of the site where service is to be provided?’ Usability Improvements screen shots
Add Hover text to Save and Close to say ‘The draft message will be saved for 90 days’ Usability Improvements screen shots
Adding Address Keys, and Easting and Northing Information to the returned address information,
KCI Improvements Following your feedback we are changing the wording of the cancellation KCI that is sent to you if BT have cancelled an order due to non acceptance of the excess construction charge after 30 working days. The wording is being changed to - Customer name Your Order Reference: xxxx BT Order Reference: 1-xxxxxxxxxxx Your Description: xxxxx Name of person who submitted the order BT have cancelled Service Id ETHAxxxxxx being supplied under Order No 1- xxxxxxxx on date xx/xx/xx due to non acceptance of ECC's after 30 days.
