Some of the interesting web applications I have built over the years.
It's a really neat solution to the problem of managing the distribution of customer stock.
This was originally built for a print company that held large amounts of customer stock in their warehouse.
They had no easy way to manage the flow and distribution and realised they needed a system that allowed customers to login and call off items for delivery as and when they needed.
Research suggested this was a fairly common issue that 'stock holding' companies have so I sat down with my team and put together the first working version for what we now call 'Pick Commander'.
It has since been reproduced for other industries and can be adapted for almost any type of business.
It's an affordable content management system for any business serious about their online presence.
Not happy with some of the frailties of open-source content management systems, I set about building our own.
It's called Bond CMS, it uses the CodeIgniter framework and it's now my preferred CMS platform for most new CMS sites I build.
Bond CMS has lots of basic modules installed that can be customised to suit the client. It's also easy for us to develop new modules as and when the project demands.
Having our own management suite to call upon means we can quickly deliver a commercial level website that is tailored to fit the client and give them the control they want.
It's an online portal that lets users signup to view live webcasts and ask questions on the fly.
This was built for a web broadcasting company so that customers could login to view live and pre-recorded broadcasts from anywhere in the world.
It uses an intelligent signup and login system that validates the user before delivering their broadcast. For live streams, I built a real-time Q&A interface that allowed users to ask questions that were then delivered in real-time to the speaker.
The system logged user activity that was later available to be viewed online or downloaded as a spreadsheet report.
Without changing the URL, it delivers the same web page content in any language you care to choose.
This was built for an international manufacturing company who wanted to deliver website content across 16 different languages.
To make things more complicated, it had to be extremely easy to use because each country had their own administrator and not all of them actually understood any English.
It made us think a lot about creating a good user experience and after a few discussions, a few cups of Punjana tea and our an in-depth 'story-board' session, we came up with a solution.
It was so successful that we only needed to present the solution once and the client 'got it' straight away.
