Custom Business Directory Listing Image

Custom Business Directory Listing

RSC developed a new kind of business directory listing service using AWS technologies.  The application uses dozens of metrics to determine which listings should be shown to the user.

Perkins + Will Document Management System Image

Perkins + Will Document Management System

Razor Sharp Consulting was sub-contracted by Robots & Pencils to complete a project management application for Perkins+Will. The application had tight integration with Box to house the various files associated with their construction projects.


We worked with the project management at Robots & Pencils to develop the PLUS product for Perkins+Will. The application was built using ReactJS and Redux for

client-side state management.


  • Responsive design (PC / Tablet / Mobile)
  • Single page application
  • PDF preview

Household Refrigeration Website Image

Household Refrigeration Website

We were contracted to design and build the new Household Refrigeration & Appliance service website. Our content creators wrote articles, tips, and all of the copy on the website.

HQCA Focus Image

HQCA Focus

Razor Sharp Consulting was sub-contracted by Arcurve to build a reporting engine for the Health Quality Council of Alberta. The reporting engine provides similar functionality to Tableau.


We worked with the existing project management structure within Arcurve to deliver this project on-time and within our budget constraints. The challenge in this application is that we were not able to use a back end

component, meaning that all of the data transformation had to occur in Javascript on the client side.
Block Talk Image

Block Talk

We were contacted by the founder of Block Talk to assist with the development of the Android version of the application and to maintain the existing iOS application and back-end infrastructure.


Block Talk is a fast growing application with approximately 50 new signups per day. Many community reports are created every day helping users feel connected to their community.


We recently completed

an add-on for Block Talk that connects the back-end with Inoreader, a popular news aggregation service. The new integration allows Block Talk administrators to configure a connection between a news feed and a community within Block Talk.
