Project Added

October 11, 2010 1 comment

It appears that boredom can, in fact, strike twice in the same day – I’ve added another entry into my projects section for anyone interested.

Commerce Network

Commerce Network is a product I created for a small Wilmington, NC – based company by the name of PrimeVendor Inc. It was designed to electronically handle all invoices, purchase orders and receiving reports passed between the private sector and the United States government in addition to all state governments governed by the US.  At the time of creation it was typical of most government agencies (and many contractors) to handle all of this manually on paper through snail mail and faxes with humans processing the documents.  Needless to say, the cost savings of replacing all of these humans and paper with a software, paperless solution are dramatic and compelling.

In order to meet these lofty goals the product had to be designed in such a way as to support any and all delivery mechanisms, protocols and data formats and, similarly, be able to then transform this data of ‘any’ format to an output destination of ‘any’ protocol in whatever format the receiver required.  It also had to be able to scale to the levels of potentially handling billions to trillions of such interactions in a day.  Additionally, we needed a web portal accessible by both our clients and the agencies they dealt with where the users could create, send and receive these documents in addition to being able to view the logs of all documents that passed through our system (and bring up each archived document for display).

New ‘Projects’ Section, Theme

So it appears that I finally got bored enough to update my blog with a new theme and a projects section detailing some of the current and past projects I’ve worked on.  For now I’ve just added my current project, MarginPro, but as boredom ensues I’ll add some of the others..

MarginPro.com

MarginPro is an extremely extensive cloud (Windows Azure) application consisting of probably the single most fully featured and beautiful business application written in Silverlight 4 currently around.  In addition to this there is also our public facing MVC application that hosts all of our marketing material, login page and a full featured help (editable and expandable in real-time by admins) and support site complete with training videos, tutorials, the ability to log support cases directly to our support department and numerous deep integrations with our CRM system to enable our sales and front-line support staff to handle the vast majority of issues that arise without ever needing to expend any development team effort.

This project is a perfect example of the benefits of software done right – if any of our customers any where in the world ever encounters an error, our development team is instantly notified via extremely detailed e-mail complete w/ the error message, stack trace and a few other pertinent bits of information.  Usually within a matter of minutes we’re able to resolve these issues and can then, with the click of a button, deploy the fix to every single user of our system without even a second of downtime or a single user interrupted.  Likewise we’re able to develop, test and deploy new features the same way with a turnaround rate of ‘several’ to a dozen+ features pushed to customers every week.
