Portfolio

A private neighborhood website

Neigbourly is a social networking platform designed to improve interaction and communication between neighbours. It helps neighbours connect by engaging communities, allowing people to share important local information and watch out for each other.


To meet all requirements, we have built up a team of 6 PHP developers experienced in debug and system investigation. The team work with our client members, consult

and suggest solutions to fix bugs. We continuously implement new features in order to improve the user experience and to perfect the app. 

Foch hospital's digital tool

A project combining an iOS mobile application and a web application developed with the Symfony framework.

Project environment. To improve the follow-up activity of Foch Hospital’s patients who are in the anesthesia department of the maternity ward, we were asked to design a digital tool, as well as a tool that allows retrospective data analysis. At the time, all childbirths were recorded in a paper notebook, making it

near impossible for them to easily access a past year's data. A complex environment. We had to first understand how doctors follow-up with their patients and what tools they were using. We had to work closely with the information systems division in order to answer several questions before we started the technical design of the application. Where will the database be stored? What is the network coverage in the hospital like? Doctors are often working under emergency conditions, so we had to build a portable tool. We imagined and developed a strong set of tools for making doctors' lives easier.

We built a native iOS mobile app that works with a Symfony web application.The dynamic mobile interface enables the creation, consultation and modification of a patient’s data, and allows real-time, online recording of anesthesia activity taking place in the maternity ward (for example epidural analgesia, or during a caesarean section). We set up an asynchronous transmission system to avoid connection losses to the database. We also added an offline mode to the mobile app: When the device reconnects to a Wi-Fi or 4G access point, it returns the data saved on the iPhone to the hospital database.

The web application, on the other hand, provides statistics and reporting tools. It includes many advanced features to improve maternity service quality and to measure the satisfaction levels of patients who recently gave birth.

Developing and maintaining a complex multisite platform

Eurovet, a world leader in the organization of professional trade shows related to lingerie and beachwear, organizes international events in Paris, Cannes, Lyon, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and Moscow.

With a strong international culture, providing professional services from the start, Eurovet has built its reputation by creating events in strategic parts of the world, whether they’re meeting platforms used

as commercial development accelerators, image catalysts, as well as sources of innovation and inspiration for the companies they support on every continent.



Eurovet was looking for a technical service provider capable of resuming the development and maintenance of an entire front-end digital platform they had developed with WordPress, as well as linking it (via APIs) to the back-office information system.

Eurovet has a very complete front-end and back-end office information system with numerous websites for the various trade shows and the management of their customers and visitors through a large centralized database. There is the main site, as well as other variations for the exhibitions, which allows the Eurovet marketing team to autonomously create and manage the different websites. Everything is interconnected to the database and to the CRM, allowing them to access and manage all customer and visitor contact information worldwide.

TEAM : 1 Java team (1 lead + 2 dev) + 1 React.js team (1 lead + dev) + 1 lead iOS

Bringing together multicultural teams.

As a software publisher, a chemical substance compliance and environmental performance specialist, EcoMundo supports its customers in putting new products on the market thanks to a database of more than 200,000 substances, and a software suite that combines EcoMundo’s scientific and regulatory expertise.


With more than 25 collaborators in France and in Canada, EcoMundo is one of the world leaders in its

market.


EcoMundo called on us to build a team of Javascrpit Developers. This team reinforces the French technical counterpart that they already had in place.


Our team works in direct contact with EcoMundo’s French developers using various communication means. We employ direct communication tools such as Hangout, allowing efficient and quick exchanges between teams, in addition to task management tools that allow the monitoring of all tickets, their progression and the ability to communicate during precise phases of the project.


our case studies

A team that consisted of three developers at the end of 2014 grew into a dedicated team of 12 developers spread between our service centers in Madagascar and Vietnam, who work together in reinforcing EcoMundo’s production using Javascript technology.

Successful cooperation for more than 5 years.


We set up a local management system that consists of a team leader and two technical project managers, as well as an agile organization through weekly meetings and daily touch-points. The French, Malagasy and Vietnamese technical environments are fully synchronized to allow everyone to work as if they were in the same room. Additionally, we implemented unit and operational testing development (Selenium) to improve the quality of deliverables.


Telemarketing management platform

Autodistribution, a leader in the distribution of spare parts for cars and trucks in France, organizes national telemarketing campaigns during which hundreds of telemarketer agents sell products over the phone.


To make the campaign's monitoring more effective, and in order to follow the required objectives, Autodistribution had to build some very specific tools.



Agile from the

beginning.


In order to match the exact need of their Sales department, we worked directly with them using the Agile Methodology to design the application. Initially, the platform was designed to organize telemarketing activities such as vendor registration, breakdown of supplier groups, product registration and goals to achieve.


In a second iteration, we built an interface to help sales managers record the live sales of their team. Managers are now able to follow telemarketing activities in real-time. The application also includes a live chat that allows various key people to interact in order to facilitate a sale's progress. It also helps to motivate team members. The manager can download a full report of a team’s performance in order to analyze sales efficiency.



An optimal platform, for both vendors and suppliers, developed using PHP Symfony technology.


The platform’s ergonomic design, fluidity and efficiency have allowed Autodistribution to integrate it quickly into their sales process. Tested and approved during the first telemarketing activity, the platform will from now on evolve to provide additional features and further optimize tracking and telemarketing promotion.


"Congratulations to the whole team who had worked on the National Telemarketing Tool! We're excited to see the second version with new functionalities for our next national telemarketing.

Solving the HR problem and speeding up the time to market of DropCloud software.

In 2008, in response to the growing demand for large file sharing, DropCloud created a web application named "We Send". The application allows users to access various features: 10 GB of storage, sending files via permalinks, file traceability, etc. The solution was then transferred into collaborative file storage and sharing space to become, at the end of 2012: "We Drop". This app is available in a Healthcare Hosting Data

environment (HIPAA), based in France.


DropCloud has a very wide range of customers, from professionals (B2B) to individuals (B2C). The platform is currently used by 300 clients and +500 000 users.


Over the years, the development teams grew but access to resources and technical skills became more complicated. “We used to work with young graduates engineers. The inflation of developers’ salaries and their scarcity quickly made itself felt,” explains Marc Renversé, CEO of DropCloud. “We needed to access a variety of technologies.”


Building a multi-technical team of 5 developers.


Our collaboration began with the development of a prospect management application. DropCloud had seven public sites and five application sites, all independent. A lack of cohesion between the applications and the old sales prospecting solution required the development of an ad hoc CRM by ourselves.


For the firs two and-a-half months, we dedicated a team of two developers who worked on the creation of the CRM with the Symfony framework. We also built a set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) in order to easily communicate with the other DropCloud platforms.


After this first successful project, the technical team grew to five fulltime developers, who could work on three projects simultaneously. These projects use Symfony (for the back-end), Angular (for the front-end), Cordova (for the mobile app) and even technologies such as C++.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company is a web development start-up which has built some of the most popular websites in New Zealand including neighbourly.co.nz and grabone.co.nz. I'm the Development Manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BOCASAY ?

Bocasay augments our in-house development team with a team of web developers dedicated to our projects.

What were your goals for this project?

Our two on-going projects require a mix of maintenance development and new features built. For our e-commerce platform, we're building an alternative to Shopify with has a better subscription purchase experience for customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I contacted many off-shore development companies in Vietnam, India and the Philippines. Had meetings with them and ultimately chose Bocasay because they felt like the most technically capable company and were small enough that meant they were more available to us.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Bocasay is building subscription purchase features which customers use directly when purchasing on our platform. Most of this functionality is built in PHP/Symfony using React on the frontend.

What was the team composition?

We have 3 developers helping us build our e-commerce platform and 4 developers helping us build a social networking platform. The Bocasay developers work as though they are members of our existing team of around 7 developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

For the Neighbourly (social network) project, they have helped build large parts of the platform which helps 800,000 people across New Zealand connect with their neighbours.

This has allowed us to meet our business goals and grow the platform. Our e-commerce platform is also now live and was delivered on time despite tight deadlines thanks to their support.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We manage the projects from New Zealand. However, Bocasay have senior developers who mentor others in the team and help make technical decisions where needed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their technical ability. They are invested in the wellbeing and careers of their staff.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None that I can think of. Bocasay has done a good job of taking any previous feedback we have had in the past and changing processes to improve their service.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Openergy is aiming to develop the first SaaS platform for energy simulation, perfectly adapted to the needs of people who are willing to take engagement for building energy consumption

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BOCASAY?

We hired Bocasay to help us develop the front-end of our new platform.

What were your goals for this project?

The platform is very complex, and has many pages. The goal was to accelerate our speed of development and have a good code quality

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We knew someone who worked with Bocasay and who recommended it to us, and the pricing was very attractive. We also looked at other companies (in France) what they can offer. For the first month, we worked with another company in France, and then we switched to Bocasay.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We were in charge of the backend, and Bocasay was developing our front-end (with the help of one person of our company). Each week, we provided them mockups and detailed tickets, which they estimated with our front-end developer and then developed during the sprint.

What was the team composition?

In Openergy's side :

  • 2 back-end developers
  • 1 front-end developer
  • 1 project owner In Bocasay's side
  • 2 front-end developers
  • 1 scrum master
RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We were able to develop many pages faster than if we were on our own. We were aiming to launch the project within 8 months, which could not have been done without exterior help.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was really effective. Each week, the team could give its feedback on the last sprint in order to improve our work for the next sprint. The team listened closely to our needs and the deadlines we could have during our collaboration.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their team listened closely to our needs and could adapt quickly if we had changes to make.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The main difficulty we had was that the team was not completely autonomous, they often needed the help of our front-end developer. This might be due to the fact that when we started working with Bocasay, the project has already started, so they did not handle everything since the beginning. For the next project, if they start since the beginning it would be great to understand the whole project in order to be more autonomous
