BaoBae provides a place for small retailers and local designers to sell all kinds of products for babies and mums. All items can be searched either by particular product categories or by retailers. Polcode was tasked with moving the entire platform from a custom-made system to Magento. Since the original solution had no automatic way to export data, our developers extracted all the necessary data manually
and converted it into a format acceptable for the Magento Mass Importer tool. Our developers also implemented a “gift basket” functionality that allows the user to create a custom collection of gifts based on a declared budget and send it to a chosen person. Items can be added to the basket automatically as well as manually.
Ringadoc is an innovative service for doctors that allows them to handle after-hour calls from their patients more effectively. An automated process makes sure that only urgent calls receive an immediate response, while at the same time all calls are registered in an interactive calendar. The ultimate goal is to provide patients with access to doctors at any moment of the day and make it easier for the latter to focus on priority cases. Polcode has been part of the project for many years. Our developer performed various tasks that defined the way Ringadoc functions. It included backend work such as: - the design of the database structure; - implementation of new functionalities using the MVC framework; - development of various backend mechanics using Redis and Resque;
- phone call handling via Asterisk AGI and a custom library based on EventMachine; - payment processing with Authorize.net and more recently Stripe; - notification sending functionality; - implementation of searching with the Solr search engine; - audio-text and text-audio transcription using the AT&T Speech/TTS service; - and configuration of centralized servers with Puppet and management of all servers. Further work was also performed on the client-side, which included conversion of HTML layouts into HAML or ERB views, design of interfaces or interactive forms.
Student Mundial is a service that makes it easy to book accommodation, housing and apartments for people interested in studying abroad. You can find the perfect and affordable place to stay thanks to the multitude of matching options and no booking fees. Additionally, the student only pays after they've actually arrived at the place.
The Polcode team was in charge of implementing a new language version of the web service. Our developer also created an API for a related portal, Housing Anywhere, and modified the implementation of Google Analytics, which included changes in the setup of conversion tracking.
The Riskanner platform allows its users to learn more about themselves - their weaknesses, strengths, propensity to take risks in financial investment decisions, etc. At first, the user is asked to fill out all sorts of psychological tests. Based on their results, the application generates charts and reports.
It’s also possible to share the test results with other users. The Polcode team built the application from the ground up. Our developers are now also in charge of the everyday maintenance of the platform, which includes the task of performing updates.
It has been our goal for quite a while to make our growing collection of books on web development, eCommerce and a variety of other topics available to every Polcode employee. With five offices in Poland, we needed a way to organize the process of loaning books in an orderly fashion. At the same time, we wanted to give our employees the ability to easily add items and create collections online. The web application we have created achieves all of these goals and provides our employees with a splendid user experience.
To facilitate management, it introduces three user roles: super admin – to manage users in all organizations;, admin – to manage all users within one organization; and user – with the ability to borrow and search for books. When the user borrows a book, the admin schedules it to be sent on the next possible occasion and the app tracks the entire process to make sure that the current status of each book as well asand the number of copies available to the remaining users is up-to-date.
YourCare is a social network for people with disabilities and other health problems. It is also a place for doctors, physicians, therapists and other service providers for disabled people (such as anti-slip flooring) to advertise themselves. The platform required many changes in order to improve its efficiency on both the client- and server-side. Our team successfully completed a variety of tasks - we added a payment module (BrainTree) and an eCommerce module to manage the subscription sales.
We implemented a string of SEO-related improvements. The Polcode team was also in charge of moving the site to another server and developing server side scripts tasked with automating backups. The remaining tasks included multiple small changes such as email notifications and fixing front-end bugs.
