A client came to me with a request to develop a cross platform mobile application for his business, this app would allow customers to see the status and details of their project at any stage during the project’s lifetime. WordPress was selected as the platform of choice for the backend due to it’s ease of use, angularjs and cordova were selected for the app to ensure that it would run on all devices. The resulting app worked using multiple external APIs including Docusign, Outlook and Dropbox.
We were approached by Cathexis EU to pitch for their project to turn their existing Excel based quotation system into a cloud-based system that would allow their team to generate quotes via a web portal. After a successful pitch we set about turning their project into a reality, we had a number of initial consultation meetings and produced a specification document outlining the work to be completed. We then carefully considered a variety of technologies for the build and settled with a PHP based backend and an Angular Js based frontend. This approach allowed us to give the user instant feedback as they selected options to build a quotation.The initial phase was to build a database with the backing data contained in the excel sheet, we manually designed and uploaded the data which allowed us to eliminate duplication and develop a comprehensive backed data system from which almost all of the data feeding into a quotation could be managed. We then began work on the front-end quote line builder element as there was a large number of user selectable options and nuances that went into the creation of each line of a quotation. This was a major undertaking and required a number of meetings to clarify amendments and tweaks that were required. We then set about building the remaining parts of the system including PDF and Word download functionality and specific pricing levels for specific users.
A client came to us and asked us to re-develop their old joomla and virtuemart and convert it to woocommerce. We ported the products over to the new site and spent a lot of time setting up variations and attributes in order to get the products to work correctly in woocommerce. We build a custom theme for the site and some custom pagebuilder widgets to allow the client to manage the site effectively. We also built a custom tartan lookup component for the site. In addition to completing an almost direct clone of the site we made improvements to make it mobile responsive and to integrate an automated feed for google shopping.
