Our Work: Custom Software Design & Development

Custom Software Design & Development

When commercial software solutions don’t fit your needs, we can build a web-based, database, or GIS application tailored to your business problems.

We are technology agnostic, meaning we study your requirements, your in-house expertise, and licensing costs before defining an appropriate architecture or software solution. Although we are a Microsoft Gold Partner and an Esri Business Partner, our primary goal is to provide maximum value to you.

With relational databases being the foundation of most applications today, our expertise also covers the gamut of database skills. From assessing poorly performing databases to developing logical and physical data models to converting data—these skills are cornerstones of our business.

Featured Custom Software Design & Development Projects

Issue Tracking SharePoint System

Our client used a spreadsheet to track issues identified by 30+ regional health organizations it serves. A staff member would email the spreadsheet to those assigned a task, who would update the status and return the spreadsheet. However, this process allowed issues to fall through the cracks, hurting the regional health organizations’ perceptions of our client.

Energy Efficient Database

Through its energy-related programs, the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) was collecting detailed energy usage data. With a $300 million grant for a rebate program that gathered detailed energy usage before and after efficiency improvements, AHFC’s data was going to increase exponentially.

Burn Permit Site

For 6 months each year, Idaho requires a fire safety burn permit for any burn outside city limits. But getting a permit required going to a permit issuing center. The Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) wanted to make getting a permit easier. They asked us to create an online, self-service permitting application that also supported their traditional agency-issued permit workflows.

Food Brokerage Accounting System

As a broker between food suppliers and distributors, our client’s processes and requirements had evolved over time, but their accounting application wasn’t designed to accommodate these changes. For example, the existing system only tracked transactions at the invoice level. However, each invoice could include multiple products, each of which is subject to different contract rules.

SharePoint Document Management System

Containing 400,000 project documents from the past 10 years, the Hummingbird document management system was considered mission critical by ANTHC’s Division of Environmental Health and Engineering (DEHE).

However, the system required constant support; corrupted documents randomly; and couldn’t meet DEHE’s needs in key areas like searching, automated workflows, and security. DEHE asked us to replace the system with SharePoint.

SharePoint Migration

The Oregon Food Bank (OFB) uses SharePoint extensively—from automating business processes, to managing documents and intranet content, to sharing information with partners.

To take advantage of new features and improvements, OFB keeps their SharePoint infrastructure updated. However, because OFB uses SharePoint so heavily, upgrading can be a significant task.
