Ag Works

AgWorks is a portal site that provides agents and producers with spot-based commodity pricing, comprehensive, ag-based weather information, and a variety of market news and updates. This portal application can be used as a wrapper around other web-based applications.

 

"We went to production with the Kendo release on time on the evening of the 28th. It could not have gone any better. I had cautioned our team to be prepared for a possible mid-day hotfix since we had changed every single screen in the system, but by noon the next day we had no show stoppers of any kind reported, and only a very few minor cosmetic issues. We have had a few minor issues come up over the week, but they were far less than I had anticipated. The incredible work done by the Falafel team, our developers, and the exceptional job our QA team did led to one of the smoothest rollouts of a project of this magnitude that I have ever seen. I think it would have been almost impossible for us to pull this off under the circumstances and on the timeline we had to work with without the Falafel team being onboard with us. I greatly appreciate the effort you put in and the professionalism you showed. You did a great job keeping the project together and on track."

Availtech

Avail Technologies wanted an easy way for citizens to track buses, stop locations and routes in real-time from any device. Only Falafel Software had the breadth of knowledge to deliver such a solution. On the web, Kendo UI was used in conjunction with ASP.MVC Razor to deliver a lightning fast and responsive HTML 5 site. A native iOS app was created for iPhone and iPad users, and a jQuery mobile optimized website was created for users of other devices. From any of these clients citizens can view a Google map with real time information about bus locations, bus capacities, routes, stops, delays, announcements and more; then use the advanced toolset to optimize their travel.

Imagine trying to track patients, blood inventories, medical supplies, hospital beds and every other medical asset during the chaos of major natural disaster. Add in the fact that every emergency is different and you have quite a problem. Global Emergency Resources has the solution, and their product was built by Falafel Software. The HC Standard software package is a completely dynamic system down to the database. All screens are configurable, any data can be recorded including photographs and videos of the scenario, GIS mapping enables near-real time logistics information and every asset can be quickly be turned into a chart or graph for immediate visual interpretation. All of this flexibility is possible thanks to the innovative database structure, which can adapt and dynamically update its schema automatically.

"We approached Falafel Software to help us develop an advanced healthcare application with very complex and specific requirements and a short delivery cycle. Not only have they innovated at every level of application and system design, they have also immersed themselves in the demands of this vertical market space. Falafel has exceeded my expectations in every way with unsurpassed professionalism, experience and friendship in delivering this application."

Jaroth

Jaroth needed to create a logistics dashboard, from which they could schedule, manage and analyze their ice cream delivery business. The solution was the StoreVoyant system designed and built by Falafel Software. StoreVoyant is a centralized hub that integrates information flowing from disparate systems, such as the Accounting/Delivery/Inventory system, mobile handsets in the fields, and the Ticketing System. In StoreVoyant, based on roles, different users can manage their portion of the business. For instance, dispatchers can use a highly customized Bing Maps dispatch screen to make decisions about which tickets to assign to which drivers, and business managers can use the dashboard screen to approve or deny new business opportunities. Falafel built the new system from scratch, and worked with Jaroth to migrate data from three legacy systems in to the new hub.

With a suite of applications referred to as Cultivate. When J.G. Boswell needed new, high tech applications to get a deeper analysis of farming data, they turned to Falafel Software. Cultivate users can now visually find and assess crop information using GIS maps of the fields, then compare with previous maps, make precision drawings, and calculate distances all from a map view. Additional aggregation of field data was also incorporated into Cultivate by Falafel Software. Crop trends can easily be uncovered with enhanced sorting, filtering and charting capabilities that allow any trend to be isolated and visualized.

Quidsi is a consumer products, that like many companies, was faced with reconciling it’s processes with its project management software. Falafel Software was called in to bridge the gap. We created an application that allowed Quidsi’s international team to manage projects and resources visually, and the data was integrated with their existing AxoSoft OnTime project management software. Now, instead of logging on to various systems to analyze, organize and enter data. Qudsi uses a Silverlight application by Falafel Software that allows project managers to drag blocks around a screen to schedule projects according to time and resource constraints.

Determining the levy on each parcel of land in a district has always been a time consuming and labor intensive process. Traditionally, teams of IT personnel run, review and rerun data to come to a conclusion. A multi-disciplined civil engineering and planning firm known as Albert A. Webb Associates (WEBB) sought to improve the efficiency of this process. With the help of Falafel Software, a software package known as WebbStar was born. With WebbStar, a task that previously required an entire IT team, now just requires someone to push a button. The time it takes to complete an assessment is now measured in minutes instead of hours.

"I contacted Falafel Software last year for a big rushed project as they were recommended to me by Telerik. After having been a Telerik user for many years, I've come to trust that their recommendations were trustworthy, and Falafel Software has proven themselves to be just as trustworthy. Having worked for the IT/IS Industry in both the public and private sector for close to two decades, I've had the opportunity to work with many consulting firms, developers, project managers, and consultants. Yet, Falafel Software was able to amaze me with their expertise, service, responsiveness, and workmanship. They truly care about the work that they do, and the success of their client. This is what makes them the top on my list. Thank-you Falafel Software!"

Unity Media needed to manage projects with both Agile and Waterfall methodologies. AxoSoft’s OnTime project management software easily handles both cases, but lacks a feature Unity Media desired: a Gantt chart. Unity Media simply called in Falafel Software, one of AxoSoft’s partners, to build the enhancement. With the OnTime API, we built a new Silverlight application that gives project managers the ability to visualize a project’s status and update tasks through a Gantt chart.

Telerik Trainer

For Telerik products, Falafel Software writes training courseware, creates training videos, and trains thousands of Telerik customers. So when Telerik wanted a desktop video trainer that would enrich the self paced training experience, they turned to Falafel Software. Falafel developed a WPF solution known as the Telerik Trainer . The Telerik Trainer has a beautiful design with rounded edges, glowing buttons, and a dark theme matching Telerik’s branding, but the Trainer is much more than a pretty video player. Synchronized highlights and tips point you at additional resources and recap the most important facts. The table of contents is updated in real time and allows you to quickly see what is coming up and jump from topic to topic. Seamless integration with Visual Studio allows you to launch corresponding code examples and be taken directly to the point being illustrated. Falafel Software produced close to 50 videos for use with the Trainer and packaged them all with the app’s administration mode. With just a few clicks, videos, code, tips and a table of contents are wrapped up into a single Telerik Trainer file.

At an airport, hundreds of things must happen quickly and seamlessly between touchdown and takeoff. JBT AeroTech produces much of the equipment airports rely on and often provides the experienced personnel needed to ensure things run like clockwork. To ensure operations personnel were aware of all things taking place, JBT AeroTech envisioned “iOps”; a customizable web based monitoring application that could provide real time visual feedback of multiple airport functions. JBT AeroTech hired Falafel Software to help turn the idea into a reality. Falafel delivered an extensible and configurable ASP.NET AJAX based application that made heavy use of Telerik’s RadDock component for customization. User’s could choose to monitor an entire terminal or any individual airport system including individual gates, elevators, escalators, baggage systems and HVAC systems. Designed for large flat screens, much could be seen at one, but user’s never lost sight of high priority alerts, thanks to a RadRotator that continually scrolled across the top of the screen with important information.

In 2011, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties distributed 45 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in need, making this food bank one of the largest in the nation. Nearly 240,000 people were fed each month and collecting and distributing this food required 297,755 hours of volunteer service. Organizing food drives and tracking volunteer contributions is an essential aspect of their day to day operations. Falafel Software designed and built an internal web based application allowing each department to enter, retrieve and report on this data. Every food drive and every volunteer hour is recorded in this system.
