Distributed, web professionals. (human friendy)
Small but powerful team sizes (max 5).
No neck beards! (well, maybe a few).
Free kisses on the cheek (it’s a french thing).
GDPR is something we understand (scout’s honor).
We play nicely with others (it’s true).
We used to author CD-Roms in the 90s (!!!).
The Cyber Information Superhighway is back! :)
The bread and butter of us brave web designers and developers. Once you outgrow weetabix wix and bob square pants space, reach for us across the ether and talk to us, we don’t bite. There is more to the web than vacuous bouncing logos in tight grids! Holy screeching modems!
It’s business as usual but this time with a digital twist of lemon. After millions of years has mankind evolved to simply become spreadsheet pushing apes? Let’s get some automated API goodness and drag all that business logic into the cloud. Hurrah for the Cloud and incessant IT catch phrases!
These scary, complex, challenging projects give our competitors tummy wobbles, but we love’em! They are packed full of juicy acronym goodness that make peoples’ eyes glaze over... Yes my hipster bearded friend, we are hurling bytes (octets for frenchies) through air, copper and fibre!
In this short video from Treehouse, co-founder Ryan Carson explains the different types of projects, tools, and job roles that are most common in the web industry. Disclaimer: chiefDreamer is not affiliated with Treehouse but we love what they do.
The challenge: The unpacking, identification of installation of home security and automation products can be a technical demanding task for the consumer. In collaboration with Somfy and other consultants, we developed and fine tuned a new online guide to replace the previous outdated system.
The process: The development of a web and tactile based installation guide was agreed upon and fine tuned to interface with the data connections of the end product that are linked to Somfy servers located in France, Germany and Italy.
The results: The process enabled a smother installation for the consumer, reducing damaged and misconfigured equipment and reducing the load on the international call centre staff.
The challenge: Compliance Australia provides Quality ISO 9001, Safety and Environmental certification services to businesses and organisations in Australia and New Zealand. The online application forms needed to be more intuitive and streamlined.
The process: The first task involved breaking down the process of data entry while respecting the critical path in addition to the validation rules for the minimum information required. The form submission also entailed the automatic generation of a custom certification agreement and complex formulae to calculate the risk assessment category for the auditors.
The results: The auditors working for Compliance Australia now have a streamlined sales pipeline that greatly reduces phone calls and on site visits to client premises. There has been a noticeable reduction in business expenses and an increase in profit margins.
The challenge: The United Nations (UNISDR) WCDRR World conference in Sendai provided a complex challenge as the conference involved hundreds of events and workshops held at over a dozen venues representing over 180 countries. Since a flat or categorised list was out of the question, our project manager devised an interactive interface to filter the events based on a multi faceted search engine, to drill down to events of interest based on venue, theme, date and segments (intergovernmental, multi-stakeholder and public forums).
The process: The main process involved collating and merging hundreds of spreadsheets and then running data cleansing and uniform character encoding algorithms to import the data into a MySQL database. Some of the data was incorrect, duplicated or contained mixed Japanese/English encoded text.
The results: The end result was a clean, clutter free interface that promoted the searching of events and workshops. The reduced reliance on printed programmes and phone calls for assistance was reduced to a minimum, thereby reducing costs and contributing to a successful high profile UN conference.
