Projects I’ve taken online in 2012

This year has been an amazing year professionally. Together with my employee Martin, and a contractors I've been using for visual design and HTML, I'm proud to report we've taken the following features for the following customers online 2012.



Companies can give their employees mobile phones. Companies pay the bill for these mobile phones. Companies with thousands of such phones get PDF bills which would be inches thick if one were to print them out. mobilreport imports the data electronically and allows various reports over the data: which employee phoned the most? To which countries? During their free-time or during business hours? etc.

Programmed using Java Wicket, we use MySQL to store our data, which then gets exported to XML, transformed via XSLT to create the reports that you see in the browser, and which you can download as PDF, RTF or XLS. My colleague Martin Schmidt at Onestop Concept used Altova Stylevision is used to make designing the reports a case of WYSIWYG.

In 2012 we released:

Offer Ready

I've been working for Offer-Ready on-and-off since March 2007. Operators can integrate this software into their workflow and find the optimal tariff for their customers. With this optimal tariff, documents such as offers can be generated.

This is great software that throws up a number of interesting technical challenges. We consider millions (no exaggeration!) of mobile phone tariff variations in well under a second, to find the optimal one.

This year we designed three new pieces of software from scratch, they are now all online:

HR Gamification System

New product, not released yet. Website should support Human Resource departments to use the talent already within the company to find new talented employees. Using appropriate current techniques such as gamification.

I will be providing the software development for this product. Currently supporting the customer with requirements, doing software design. HTML is being done by my employees in Philippines. Next year we'll get on to the software development (with Martin) and taking the system into production.

United Youth

Between July 2011 and February 2012 inclusive I was the sole developer for a charity web platform called United Youth for Kurt Braunhofer. Although development was continued by a new team from March onwards, in December 2012 the new team took their platform online and included one piece of software from me: the Symbol Page.
