Asset Management System

Our client produces and installs digital and other stationary devices across North America. We built a system that allows the client to monitor their devices and ensure that everything is going smoothly both leading up to, and after installation.

The software we developed checks the status of digital devices using various APIs supplied by device manufacturers, and alerts the client if there is an issue. It includes a task list that lets managers add to-do items to any device. Devices and issues are grouped by location, with maps to help visualize where problems are occurring. The system can be used both internally by our client as well as by their clients so that they can see and manage the status of their own devices.

For this project we used our favourite frameworks: CodeIgniter to structure and simplify back-end, Knockout.js for robust lightning-fast front-end, and jQueryUI for attractive and intuitive widgets. Thanks folks!

 

Renewabled

Renewabled.com offers its users a way of finding renewable energy suppliers near them. The site has a search tool that returns a list of distributors within a radius of the user’s selected location.

The owner of Renewabled approached DOMIC needing help to improve the accuracy of these results. David added an additional buffer to the results to include the city bounds, as well as suggesting and implementing various other changes to improve code efficiency.

This week I decided to make a quick little application purely for this purpose. I hope you, too, will find this simple tool useful. … Continue reading
