Modular Aeration Control System (WebMACS) Image

Modular Aeration Control System (WebMACS)

Challenge
WebMACS is a compost aeration control and monitoring system comprised of both industrial process control components and custom software. It was already a successful product, but Green Mountain Technologies needed assistance with improving the user interface, adding new functionality and making the product easier to customize for each composting facility.

Solution

Cypress Mill Co designed a completely new version of the control software and user interface based on feedback from previous versions.

Building on the strengths of the React javascript framework, the new user interface incorporated responsive design to allow ease of use for desktop and mobile devices.

Automated test coverage was included for both the Lua control code and the React application so that developers could add features and make changes without worrying about breaking existing functionality.

Finally, by architecting clean boundaries between configuration concerns and application features, the new software was able to deliver a customized package for each compost facility which performs reliably and requires minimal effort for each new project.
WCI Inventory System Image

WCI Inventory System

Challenge
Commercially available inventory management systems were not meeting the client’s needs due to:
  • Lack of flexibility with managing barcodes and inventory locations
  • Awkward hardware and software implementations that were difficult to use
  • High monthly subscription costs

Solution
Through multiple interviews with the client’s team
members, we were able to document real-world examples of how the software would be used and identify the key features they needed to track inventory effectively. 

We then designed a web application to implement those features in the simplest way possible while also providing a solid foundation for future improvements. The solution included the ability to register existing barcodes as well as create custom barcodes, and then use a barcode scanner to check inventory in and out of the system. 

By using the modern Django web framework combined with Agile development processes, we were able to quickly build the web application while getting feedback from the client’s team members every step of the way.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the general manager at Green Mountain Technologies, a commercial composting company that does engineering, consulting, and fabricating of composting systems of all sizes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Cypress Mill Co, LLC?

Cypress Mill assists us with the programming of our web Mac system, which involves the computerized controls of our state-of-the-art systems for the composting. It also includes our municipalities with our ASP systems. Their team also assists us with the programming of some of the controls.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Cypress Mill is in charge of our frontend development. Since they’re remote from us, their team works closely with our electronics technician to put everything together.

What is the team composition?

I believe it’s between 2­–4.

How did you come to work with Cypress Mill Co, LLC?

Years before our engagement began, an employee from their organization worked here temporarily.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $50,000–$70,000 a year.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing engagement started in February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The success of their work is always amazing. Over the years, we’ve built a wonderful partnership with Cypress Mill. Their team has become an integral arm of our organization.

They’re exceptional when it comes to helping us. If there’s ever an issue with programming, they’re great at having a sense of urgency. Last week, we had a system programming issue at a university. They were available immediately to help us get it up and running.

Yesterday, we were working with a major municipality, getting projections together for their electrical work. Cypress Mill assisted us with getting all of the schematics and quotes together.

In my position, I don’t deal with them on a daily basis. But I know that they’re always there to assist us.

How did Cypress Mill Co, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re excellent at project management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team has also provided us with information in regard to how they run and market their business. They’ve recommended people that they’ve used for those services, and we have employed them as well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m not aware of anything at this point. As a company, we’re looking to get more innovative programming moving forward as the industry changes. I would suggest Cypress Mill continue to be cutting-edge as they move toward more 21st century tools and programming.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure that you’re contacting them. Be clear about what you need. They’re great at responding and listening. Their team is always looking at how to best resolve issues for their customers.
