What was the scope of their involvement?
The Refinery Haus is building a web app, which will consist of two prominent pieces. The first will be a public-facing website that lists information about our business. It will also have a firewall-backed sign-in page, which will direct registered users to the actual app. With the app, there are two unique user paths for administrators and general employees. Developing the user experience is a collaborative effort between both of our teams, but The Refinery Haus has creative control over the design style.
Per OSHA requirements, all users have a unique username, and all practices must maintain records. To support this, we will have to continuously work with The Refinery Haus team to modify the backend. They are also developing an algorithm that prepares a custom OSHA manual based on survey responses. Training videos will also be hosted on the site, along with software that tracks how users engage with the media. An automated email system will send out reminder emails to users.
What is the team composition?
We interact with their CEO a lot due to our prior relationship, but we also work with their lead developer.
How did you come to work with The Refinery Haus?
I have known their owner for many years, so they were the first companies that I reached out to for this project. We talked to a few other development firms but ultimately decided to go with The Refinery Haus.
How much have you invested with them?
It costs us a little less than $200,000 to build the platform.
What is the status of this engagement?
We officially kicked off the project in November 2018, and we plan to wrap things up in June 2019.
