A sample of projects I've worked on

I've worked on everything from simple static websites to complex web applications with millions of database records. Whether you need help creating something from scratch, completing a project or improving an existing setup, I can help.
Created a bespoke web application allowing users to create and send SMS messages, voice messages and email messages to contact lists. Used by several blue-chip clients, the application has been used to process several million SMS messages.

Developed extensive reporting functionality allowing users to track messages, access delivery receipts and manage inbound SMS replies. Also built an inhouse CRM allowing staff to quickly generate PDF and Excel invoices based on the volumes sent through the application.

Project involved heavy use of Web Services, integration with multiple different parties, close attention to database structure/performance and elements involving use of QR/Barcodes.
