If you required a web application to either dove-tail into a website or run as a stand alone portal, then give us a call.
Web apps are basically a computer program that runs on a web server and presents the results in a web browser, examples may be:
Hotel Allotment booking system for Bali Tours & Vietnam Tours
Ideograph was requested to build a hotel booking system. Though there are off the shelf systems, and industry based specialised software for hotel bookings, none of these could be customised for their unique requirements.
The application runs behind their website. Employees can login to the Admin section and book hotels for their clients.
First built in 1989, the system has been running none stop since then, though updated periodically as technically required and as new functions have come available.
Basically the application works like this:
Holdfast Marine are contracted to manage approx. 1500 boat moorings in the northern part of Port Philip Bay.
The boat moorings are leased from Parks Victoria (a government department) to lease holders (usually the boat owner).
Each year, the moorings need to be inspected, every 3 years the moorings have to be completely pulled up and inspected, and replacements where necessary.
Inspections and replacements are at the lease holders expense. Leaseholders pay their yearly subscriptions to Parks Victoria. Maintenance work cannot be done to mooring until their Lease has been paid to Parks Victoria.
Ideograph was requested to build a management system to schedule and record inspections, work done and payments for each mooring.
The application records:
It's a standard requirement today to securely dispose of any digital equipment that may store data, this includes just about every digital device these days. The devices need to be pulverized into tiny pieces so there is no chance of ever retrieving data.
Secure Hard Drive Destruction, Department of Justice's preferred certified disposal supplier, approached Ideograph to build a system for The Department of Justice to use to minimise paper work and save time for getting quotes and raising purchase orders for disposal of digital assets.
In consultation with the Department, Ideograph built the system to work with their methods and procedures.
Insight into how the procedure was…
Department of Justice has 94 locations across the State of Victoria. When one of these locations needed to dispose of some digital assets they would ring the dedicated department within the head office of Department of Justice and request a quote.
The team member would get a list of digital items eg. Mobile phones, digital cameras, datacards etc. and would ring their supplier 'Secure Hard Drive Destruction' to get a quote. At the same time logging that the location has items to dispose of.
The quote would then be emailed back to the team member at Department of Justice and then emailed back to the original location for approval.
Once approved then the location would notify the team at head office of Department of Justice, they would notify 'Secure Hard Drive Destruction' of the items to be picked up. With that there is also 5 levels of security - depending on the sensitivity of the items and the data.
At the top level of security, the driver picking up the items has to be certified and be the only driver (other words, has to pick up and deliver to point of destruction). A representative of the organisation disposing of the item/s also has to witness the destruction of the item/s.
Internal reference numbers are allocated for all quotes and orders.
AND ALL THIS REPORTING WAS DONE ON EXCELL !
Ideograph designed and built a secure portal that alleviated all the double dealing and managed all the processes used on both ends - Department of Justice and Secure Hard Drive Destruction, making whole process fast, simple, user friendly.
Feed back from the Department of Justice is that it is fantastic, saves them untold hours, and the same at suppliers end.
The web app performs the following…
