The solution is called OfficePlay and offers a virtual office experience for businesses who have employees working from home. Employees can meet up in a virtual world and walk around, talk, collaborate, have private meetings, play games with each other and interact with chat bots for support.

We started with a business challenge of connecting employees who are working from home because of the lockdown. We conducted brainstorm sessions and a competitor analysis to find ideas and use cases. We then presented this idea to real potential end customers and conducted user research to define the most valuable requirements for our solution. The requirements are defined in detail in chapter 2.1 and the research process and documents can be found in chapter 1 and appendix a.

The solution is built upon the Salesforce platform, and this required to overcome interesting technical challenges for which we designed design patterns and algorithms. In chapter 2.2 and 2.3 a detailed review of those challenges and the overall architecture and implementation is discussed. In chapter 2.4 a current draft of the user interface is presented to give a visual understanding if the different use cases. In the last two chapters you can find the references and appendices.
