Q4 2013 - Ongoing | Tentio

Lead web developer

I am responsible for the development in the creation of an idea management system. The customer is a consultant company that is going to use the system to demonstrate how IT can be used in the process of developing and evaluating ideas in big companies.

TenTio is a consultant company in product and service development.

The project goal is to create a tool that demonstrates to TenTios customers how an idea management system might look like and how such a system can be used to gain a greater breadth, greater transparency and involve more people in the process of developing and evaluating ideas in big companies.

The solution is a web based application where users can log in and post ideas and evaluate them using a series of parameters. The application then uses an algorithm to set a rating on the idea. There is also a social aspect to the application where the users themselves can vote up or down others ideas. The application is written in PHP and the MVC framework Laravel.

I am responsible for all development in the project. I've also been partly involved in the UI-design of the system.

The project is currently ongoing.

Q3 2013 – Q4 2013 | Robin M Bygg

Lead web developer & UI-designer

Timetracking and project management system. My role was as lead developer and UI-designer.

Robin M Bygg is a small Swedish construction company.

Each employee at Robin M Bygg must daily report their working time, material costs, a brief summary of what has been accomplished along with other data to the administration. Before the project this happened through channels such as e-mail or SMS. The administrators then compiled the reports using vast excel documents. The process was time consuming for both employees and administrators.

The project goal was to make these processes easier and more efficient. This was accomplished with a web application. The application is separated in two interfaces; one mobile and one desktop. Employees can log in via the mobile interface and write their report directly to their workplace using a mobile device. Reports can then be handled by the administration through the desktop interface where the administrators easily can filter by different parameters and calculate sums. The application also has some support for project management, such as budgeting and registration of invoices.

I was responsible for most of the development. I also prepared the prototype and the specifications in collaboration with the project manager. The application is built in PHP with the MVC framework Laravel.

The system is currently used by all employees and saves hours of work for both the administration and construction workers every week.

Q3 2012 – Q4 2012 | Svenska Pontonhamnar

Project leader, web developer, designer & SEO/SEM consultant

I helped the bridge construction company Svenska Pontonhamnar with a website, online marketing and branding. This is one of the projects I’ve carried out on my own.

Svenska Pontonhamnar is a company that delivers integrated bridge solutions to yacht clubs, marinas, municipalities and individuals.

The company had a website with outdated appearance that lacked a CMS, rendering it impossible to update the content without code knowledge.

I undertook the project on my own and came up with a graphic profile consisting of logo, typeface and color palette along with a new responsive web, based on PHP and WordPress.

In addition to the website I have analyzed and improved the strategy for online marketing. Using statistics from the site, ineffective and expensive marketing channels was eliminated and replaced with channels that provide better returns. The biggest addition to the strategy was a Google AdWords campaign. Last year it generated 70% of the total number of requested offers, which is the main performance indicator of the website.
