Your data, your way. We understand the need to access information through a variety of applications and we specialize in making that possible. Whatever the format, purpose, or destination, we’ll make sure your data gets there.
Our software developers work with web service APIs every day. We specialize in moving data from A to B using standardized, secure practices. We have experience creating and consuming RESTful and SOAP services using XML and JSON to perform a wide variety of tasks ranging from day-to-day website interaction to multi-system data synchronization.
LIGHTFAIR International is an annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference. It is run by the owner of AmericasMart, architect John Portman. We maintain and enhance applications for this website, which is very similar to the work that we do for AmericasMart. These applications include dynamically created exhibitor lists, online submittals for Innovation Awards, online call for speakers, and vendor booth sign-up and support. We also maintain their admin panel (a non-public website) that is used for exhibitor maintenance, vendor space assignment, and billing/invoicing.
Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA)
The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) quality assurance accreditation program gives HVAC contractors a way to prove their competence to builders and homeowners. Designed by ACCA with contractor input, the quality assurance program focuses primarily on ANSI/ACCA standards, accrediting contractors who follow those standards when installing HVAC systems in new and existing residential buildings. Benningfield Group was responsible for creating a website and app that could collect and catalog data directly from contractors as they moved through the qualification process.
To be effective, the systems had to be both user-friendly and robust. As contractors use the app to complete an installation checklist, the software provides guidance and assistance as appropriate. Once the checklist is complete, the app employs several internal error-checking methods before uploading the results to a database. As soon as the data is uploaded, the database performs further validation checks before automatically sending the information to various stakeholders (e.g., HVAC contractor, ACCA Program Administrator, etc.) for review.
Working with ACCA, Benningfield Group put its experience in both software development and energy efficiency into creating the infrastructure for this important project. This unique position allowed us not only to leverage the expertise of our talented software team, but also to take advantage of our staff who understand the needs and expectations of the app’s regular users.
