Waikato, New Zealand
We have been working with SilverStripe since 2009. In that time, we have build and maintained many types of web infrastructure: operational and commercial, large and small, responsive or not, and in January 2014 we have delivered our first project built on the Government's Common Web Platform (CWP).
The Waikato District Health Board is one of the first government agencies to take advantage of the Common Web Platform (CWP). We were approached and selected to develop a full re-build of the Waikato DHB's website on the CWP. The main challenges of the development of this responsive and highly visited website was firstly the fact that we had to be pioneers on a new platform (launched the month before our work started) and secondly to make sure the website supports IE7 and IE8.
A less commercial and rather highly complex operational project was the taking over, maintaining and evolving of Metro Connect, which is Metro Performance Glass' direct customer ordering system for glass fabricators and merchants. Metro Connect is a proprietary Computer Aided Design (CAD) application that runs on web browsers. It is quite a sophisticated piece of technology and a complex one too. Our team needs not only to be abreast on web technology and on top of all the challenges of software development but also apply advanced mathematical skills to the project.
