This project involved incorporating the Northlink website into our previously-built content management system to provide EGIS with a consistent trio of websites.
In a project that was not a typical one, Simplify I.T. showed its versatility by installing 4 new computers and a server in the Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre. With the facility open from 6am to 10pm, a detailed implementation plan was required in order to minimise disruption. The migration included the usual files and folders along with Sage, Quick Books, backups, membership system and point-of-sale equipment.
This project involved working around a DOS accounting program called Take5. While this simple package does the day-to-day tasks extremely well, it’s very rigid when it comes to reporting. Simplify I.T. learned how the DBF tables interacted and set them up to automatically extract to a server overnight, automatically convert and import themselves into a Microsoft Access database. Combined with pre-written forms and reports, this allowed for a whole new level of sales reporting that could be developed and changed rapidly. The couple of days previously spent typing VAT data (every 2 months) has now been replaced by a one-click report.
The Chiropractic Association of Ireland (CAI) requested that a custom-written membership system be written especially for them, to precise requirements. This system would need to handle all aspects of their association…historical documents, payments, certificates, specialities, education, insurance, profile photos…with a full field-level audit trail. Simplify I.T. delivered exactly that.
Paul asked for a content management system (CMS) that would allow him to update all the content via a user-friendly Simplify I.T. custom-designed control panel and we created exactly that.
Simplify I.T.’s third Magento (open source CMS) project involved working with the client to create an online wedding stationary store. This huge website allows visitors to choose a product, customise it, pay for it via PayPal and submit it for printing.
The owner of LocalSigns.ie, a new business, wanted the ability to add new towns (with Google Map coordinates) using a custom-written control panel. Within each town, he needed to add an unlimited number of locations as placemarkers, with an image and text for each. This was a new area for Simplify I.T. and we’re very pleased with the result.
SMF Engineering were spending many hours every week creating invoices manually in Excel. Simplify I.T. built a small system that allows them to generate their invoices in a structured way and have one-click reporting.
Following on from a previous Magento installation, we worked with Swift Print to set up another Magento (open source CMS) website on the same platform. This website allows visitors to upload their own artwork and submit it directly for printing, while paying via PayPal.
A leading Irish civil engineering firm needed to extract data out of Sage Coretime in a pre-defined format, which had been approved by senior management. The brief we were given was that the query needed to be repeatable and the data capable of being exported to Microsoft Excel with one click. Simplify I.T. achieved exactly that.
