Window Shade System

WSS is an application for supply chain management, order entry, shipping management and invoicing for a window shade manufacturer. Deployed as a web application, it allows their staff to stay productive, even when they’re not in the office. Their old ASP intranet was rewritten from the ground up in Rails to help keep up with the changing product line as the business grows.

The D10

The D10 came to us with a challenge: Online registrations for their charity event opened in 10 days and their web application needed some serious work, specifically with its semi-functional registrations system. We delivered, and went on to add additional features, including a mobile site that allowed donors to place performance-based donations during the event, a mobile scoring tool that allowed scorekeepers to record results in real-time during the event, and physical, real-time performance and fundraising leaderboards.

We provided on-site services during the event to make last minute changes, and the event went off without a hitch, raising over $1M for pediatric cancer research.

We continue to maintain and improve the application for each year’s events. The D10 is now in 5 cities annually, with more to come. The 2016 NYC event was featured on NBCSN. Be sure to check it out and make a donation to a very worthwhile cause while you’re there.

CharityBets is looking to change how competitors typically raise money for charity through the events they compete in. The focus is on performance-based donations, where the better a participant competes, the more money they raise for their charity. CharityBets needed a web application to allow competitors to showcase the events they are participating in and solicit donations on behalf of their charities. The application itself helps promote the competitors, charities and events all in an effort to raise money for good causes.

Leave It To Siri

Apple’s latest invention, Siri, seems to have quite the personality and we decided the web needs somewhere to showcase the lighter side of Siri. LeaveItToSiri is a collection of conversations with Siri, mainly interactions that didn’t quite make the cut for Apple’s official promo videos. Check it out and submit your own!
