Email Integration

To: 
1999
From: 
1996

ePostings was a strtup specializing in rule-based email filtering.

I build the rule-based engine in pl/sql, an SMTP server in Java that lived inside ORacle (Hard to describe but very effective).

Designed email farm, sorting farm, and storag architecture, along with the usual ERD's and other artifacts of development process.

Problem Definition: 

How to effectively manage email for the busy professional.

Approach: 
A system which touches many functions requires many protocols: Java, HTML, PL/SQL, PERL, and server architectures were each critical parts of the whole.

Expert Witness

To: 
2005
From: 
2001

Like its sister project, VerdictSearch.com, NLJExperts.com (The NLJ is for National Law Journal, another property of incisivemedia's), designed application, coordinated production, and incremental improved, and managed this application for 5 years.

Problem Definition: 

Like verdict research, expert witness search is one of the big opportunities in the legal information market.

Approach: 
Full-stack developement from ERD to buildout to primary-level support.

Legal Research

To: 
Present
From: 
2001

VerdictSearch.com, owned and operated by IncisiveMedia, LLC, is one of the leading legal research venues in the world.

Initial architecture and build-out, coordination with designers and testing.

Clemandco is proud to have incrementally improved and maintained the application for over 7 years now.

Business Journals

To: 
2006
From: 
2003

When I arrived on the scene at the Westchester and Fairfield Business Journals, 4-day-a-week employee went live with the web version of these papers the Thursday after Monday morning publication.

Using XML from Quark (later InDesign), a smaller staff was able to generate the full web version of the paper four days before the paper version hit the mailboxes, at a tiny fraction of the cost of a full time employee.

Build out full eCommerce for online paper purchases, integrated with two different vendors.

Problem Definition: 

One of those integration problems at which clemandco excels: how to take items and protocols on hand and turn them in a real, working system that saves time and money?

Approach: 
Many phases, from initial development of the online papers and scripts, to full ecommerce, metatagging, dynamic publication through much-hacked Drupal instance.

Debt Collection

To: 
Present
From: 
2002

The firm of Moss Associates came to me to build a system for debt collection to be used by lawyers distributed nationally.

The system logs, assigns, tracks the items, and reports on monthly totals and commissions for users. It generates court papers in Word format, and tracks every call, change in item status, final payments, and even mailing labels for correspondence.

Kind of like a CRM, only with debtors.

Problem Definition: 

How do you build a national law firm of part-time associates specializing in debt collection?

Approach: 
Full application development, from ERD to application architecture to graphic design to debug to rollout.

MEMBER+

To:

1997

Dubbed MEMBER+, the Neta4 solution offers a unique strategy for integrating push, privacy, and personalization technologies into a single unified software package which allows customers to more effectively trade personal profile information for merchant-supplied benefits and discounts. Using MEMBER+, Web-based merchants will be able to deliver product and service related promotions direct to customers on a one-to-one rather than an anonymous aggregated basis, helping build brand loyalty and increasing customer satisfaction.

Ongoing project, with teams in Jerusalem, San Francisco, and New York.

Facilities Manager

To: 
2006
From: 
1995

One of my favorite projects.

Chemical Bank asked Design Systems to integrate existing DBASE databases of assets with their AutoCad drawings into an intranet.

Users would be able to browse drawings, identify cataloged assets and maintenance items on the web instead of requireing AutoCad. (Remember this was 1994 -- .DWG viewers were few and far between.

The resulting mix of AutoLISP, HTML, dynamic image mapping, and scheduled cron jobs was known as the Chamical Bank Facilities Navigator.

Problem Definition: 

Integrate dissimilar packages into a web presence.

Approach: 
Low-tech, low-price solution using materials, protocals, data, and techniques at hand.
Result: 
I got a call from the client 10 years after sign off. The application had been up -- with minor modifications -- continuously for 10 years without additional maintenance!
