Product Management Systems

Creation of a database to allow for accounting of specific types of products.  This system was converted from a DB2 system to Access for easy daily management of specialized reports.

Online Product Websites

This program was to provide for a website where individuals could see jewelry and request a viewing of said jewelry based upon moving a camera around to display the available jewelry.  Additionally, the program was to allow for a view of the microscope to see the actual closeup of the jewels in the fine jewelry.  System provided for camera panning to view the entire jewelry case.

Luthier Website

The website was designed for a luthier who specialized in making guitars.  The site included a sales portal for various components for guitars as well as jigs and fixtures used in the design and creation of custom instruments.

Photographic Live Retail System (Visual Basic.NET / SQL Server)

This extensive system was designed to allow for a photographer at a sporting competitive event to live capture high-resolution photographs of athletes, dancers and other types of fast-moving photographic objects, automatically upload, scale, proof and size photos for immediate sale on a custom touch screen Point of Sale system.  The System integrated 20 touch screen sales portals that allowed a user to view their specific event and team and select and purchase unlimited amounts of photographs and sizes of photographs for on-demand on the spot printing.  Phoenix produced all aspects of the project to include portable servers, transportable carrying units for the point of sale terminals, wiring diagrams, networking, engineering and transmittal receivers for camera photo transmissions.  We also interfaced with multiple laptops that were coordinating data to the supervisors and the point of sale teams to ensure that high-quality prints were available minutes after an event/routine had occurred.  

The system was broken into 4 components - Centralized Server Data Management, Touch Screen Photo Review Point of Sale, Camera Transmission Stations, Supervisor Review Stations.
