Description: Web application to capture sales data from brokers around the country and display the results thereof.
Rode was struggling to automate the gathering of information and the collating of responses from geographically dispersed brokers with tight work schedules. They also saw tremendous value in being able to visualise the data geographically on a map.
White Wall Web created a centralised online database for the brokers to login and capture their information. The system automatically collated results and geo-located the data for reporting onto a map. Google Maps was used to enable the creation of custom geographical areas for reporting.
Rode is able to capture this data and collate it far more efficiently. As a core revenue stream of the business, this efficiency impacts directly on the bottom line.
Rode has also now been given the means to visualise their results on a map according to specific customised areas that they have defined.
The solution was built using Ruby on Rails and MySQL. The Google Maps API was used to present the data visually on a map. The Intellectual Property is held by Rode and Associates.
