The existing business department had been managed predominantly with knowledge retained by a small team of personnel, primarily functioning simultaneously as telesales operators and supplier liasions, using spreadsheets as their only IT system.

Guidance was provided in determining suitable models to make the ad-hoc markups consistent.

The project was undertaken on contract with the initial development undertaken from Lisbon, and subsequently in New Delhi with a PM in the UK. The project was cancelled following client's capacity limitations with their IT department to complete basic integrations with the new platform.

Design was temporary put in place myself.

The mobile app was developed primarily using embedded responsive web views that allowed speedy function development with access to all CMS functionality. Notifications provided seamless on device access to the views.
