Django Web Studio is maintaining this inspection platform for the world-wide engineering firm Arcadis. The iOS iPad app is used by inspectors in the field, backed by a RESTful web service. Staff can administer the platform using the backoffice web application.
Arcadis is a large engineering enterprise with world-wide reach. One of the many activities of this company is the facilitation of the assessment of building conditions. Its primary customers for this activity are governmental organisations seeking to enforce laws regarding building construction quality and adherence to environmental laws.
As the title of the platform suggests, Arcadis provides an inspections tool for such clients according to private requirements and/or building regulations, both during the construction phase and when in use, and with provisions for adding findings, and means to escalate to 2nd and 3rd tier inspectors.
The Survey Platform is a combination of a backend API written in Django, communicating with an iOS application for iPad, and a midoffice web application. The combination caters for two distinct groups of users: the first, inspectors of building permits for which the iPad is a reporting tool, the second, for project managers tasked with tracking the activities of the inspectors and the progress of the building permit projects.
Django Web Studio was asked to take over changes and support. We did a number of major features, including most screens for the midoffice but also a number of important enhancements to the backend API.
At the moment we are doing Tier 3 support. In addition to this, we are discussing and implementing enhancements and new features.
More than 200 users in some 40 organisations are using the platform, and have created more than 6000 projects.
