Case Studies

Members of Biteit have had extensive experience in designing and developing software solutions. The following details some of the more interesting projects:

Project Information System (1999)

The client was a consultancy organisation with its head office located in Sydney and consultants located throughout the country. The company was in a rapid growth phase and needed to improve its collection and management of financial information on their consultants and projects.

The solution consisted of MS Excel templates where consultants entered their weekly time and expense details and a MS Access database for collation and reporting of the information.

Each week the consultants would email their timesheet to the accounts department which would import the data into the database. Although the MS Excel files incorporated basic error checking, the MS Access database checked to make sure that there were no real errors before importing the data. The systems complexity related to the need to enable consultants to have multiple roles in a project at different rates and also to support the change of rates over time, while retaining a full information history. It provided reports for invoicing and the payment of consultants working as contractors, as well as date range reports for individual consultants and projects. The system also became the main project information store incorporating invoicing details and project metadata.

Ultimately the need for consultants not located in Sydney to access financial information on their projects resulted in the Internet based reporting system being requested and developed. The Internet based system allowed consultants to see all the financial information on any of their projects.

LawSearch (1999)

The Department of Finance and Administration (DOFA), was responsible for managing the Commonwealth Government Bookshops and providing them with information on Commonwealth Legislation. DOFA had a number of mainframe and word processor based systems for managing this information.

The solution required detailed analysis of the current systems and determination of all the possible relationships between legislative items. This proved a challenging task as there were a number of cases where legislative items did not follow accepted rules. The solution also had to reengineer the process of maintaining the legislation and import the existing data from various systems.

After 3 months of using the system DOFA saw the opportunity to make this information available to the public. The solution was based on the database being uploaded to the web on a nightly basis and a simple search and report interface being provided. Website accessibility and page loading speed were the major priorities for this site. This system is currently available at: www.lawsearch.gov.au

Online Registration System (2001)

The client was an international multiple sport and cultural activity event held in Sydney, Australia in late 2002. They were expecting over 15,000 competitors participating in 49 sports/activities and 594 events.

The task was to develop an online registration system to enable participants to:

  • indicate if they were a participant / media / spectator / volunteer
  • provide bibliographic information
  • select sports/events, limited to those available for their gender and age
  • indicate partners for doubles events and create teams, or join teams, for team events
  • provide additional information for sports and events (eg. expected time, club membership)
  • calculate their registration fee (based on number of sports and events for some sports) in $US and $AU (depending on country)
  • pay their registration fee online using credit card in AU$ or US$ (supporting 1,3 or 6 installments)
  • receive confirmation of their registration by email
  • provide/change their password (stored encrypted)
  • log back in after starting their registration to complete it or make changes
  • have new login details emailed to their registered email address if they lost them

The site administrators were given online functionality to:

  • maintain lists of sports and events, including details of sport/event specific requirements and information
  • maintain textual information that was displayed in the online registration
  • obtain reports of registration status (ie. incomplete, complete, complete and paid)
  • obtain reports at sport and event level, including participant list and team details
  • obtain financial reports of amounts paid / due
  • search for and view individual registration details, including payments
  • edit individual registration details and tag registrations as deleted
  • enable sports coordinators access to a limited set of admin functionality to assist them to manage their events

The client originally had a target of 80% of registrations to be electronic. Over 99% of registrations were received online.
