WalletCard Certification Management WordPress Extension

  • Agency Partner: 12th Street Consulting
  • Year(s): 2015
WalletCard offers a novel way for employers to issue certifications to employees who have completed coursework or training modules and proven their ability to perform certain tasks or jobs. After creating a business profile, employers can create certifications for any number of learning requirements, and once an employee has achieved the proper qualifications, certifications can be assigned to the employee. The employee also visits their account and verifies the certificates that have been granted them. Our agency partner 12th Street Consulting commissioned us to assist in building out the client’s website to perform these functions. Together we created a prototype which extended Wordpress's user model with a more complex structure, and built a custom theme that extended WordPress functionality.

  • Agency Partner: Blue Sky Projects

After having worked on several projects with Marc Rapport of Blue Sky Projects, we were invited to participate in a project for our biggest “name” client--an enterprise client. T-Mobile’s testing department were making use of robotics to perform tasks on handsets, but the data set returned was indecipherable. The client’s senior engineers weren’t inclined to write a middle-tier application, so we stepped in. We placed two developers on-site for three weeks to work in a classified wing of their Bellevue campus headquarters. We built an internal application to collect the data in a database, and then sort and filter that data to display it in a more useful way, complete with search capability. We then set up a local WAMP server to allow them to run the app locally.

  • Agency Partner: Samantha Caudill, LLC
  • Year(s): 2010

Samantha Caudill, a one-woman agency out of Ohio, contracted Twelve23 in 2010 to help with a project for her client Poppin Prints.

The challenge was rendering various sizes of image uploads in their actual sizes and dimensions on the card templates. When evaluating the end client's needs, we opted against a custom build and took advantage of features found in Adobe Scene7 to configure images. We then built a JavaScript wrapper application that would connect Scene7 with the site's CMS, which was managing the pages.
