In our first French project for a few years, a reflexologist asked us to create a responsive website that she could maintain herself and add blogs to. The colours of the office and logo were already defined and these needed to be factored into the new website.
This project, on which Simplify I.T. was a sub-contractor, is a complicated control panel built to very precise requirements. It allows the business owner to record damage to buildings and attach 4k-quality videos and images to an inspection line. It also allows their clients to log in and view all their buildings on a Google Map and view their inspections with pixel-level zoom functionality. Finally, it features a custom-written file manager, similar to DropBox.
In a very interesting and historic War of 1812 project, a descendant of Lt. Andrew Playfair came to us requesting a website that looked beautiful, had a historic feel, that was mobile-friendly and could be updated at any time. A WordPress Responsive theme was the solution, with lots of Simplify I.T. customisations and image work.
Kilmarnock Enterprise is a rapidly-growing company in Smiths Falls, Ontario. In an effort to bring their business systems in line with the company’s strategy, they commissioned Simplify IT to: – perform an in-house analysis of their processes and procedures – facilitate meetings with stakeholders – reflect all findings in a technical document – gain approval from all parties on the company’s approach to a new business system.
Simplify I.T. has just completed an internal SQL Server and PHP driven sales accounts system for a multinational company, to replace a Google Sheets file. It has approximately 100 users. This complex new system, which runs on an internal server, is an authorisation system that sends emails to the relevant users asking them to review a workflow stage and fill out the relevant data relating to it. It contains a suite of reports and has different security levels.
Savoir, a French-culture business based in Ontario Canada, needed a fully responsive and phone-friendly library system that its students could use to look for books, CDs, DVDs etc. As is often the case, off-the-shelf solutions were either too complicated or lacked some of the required features. As always, Simplify I.T. created a system especially for the client.
This month, we delivered our first Canadian training course, in Microsoft Project 2013. Designed specifically with the company’s employees in mind, the one-day course was a huge success and is just the first of many planned courses in the area. Other courses available include Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, Outlook and PowerPoint.
Our second Canadian project involved creating an online calendar system for a luxury cat hotel near Perth, Ontario. This system allows the owners to record cat bookings and visits and most importantly, see at a glance the projected revenue for this and future months. Previously they used Microsoft Excel and had to generate each month manually which was extremely time-consuming.
Another Canadian project, Pickers Trading Place was one of the more challenging websites that Simplify I.T. has worked on. Fully responsive and phone-friendly, it allows antique dealers and pickers to create an account and list their products for sale. It also allows for PayPal payments and the creation of auctions as well as trade-to-trade offers.
