Chorus is ideally suitable for workflow management tasks. The Chorus model allows work to be requested, tracked, and recorded and is fully customized to your existing business processes. Chorus is ideal for models where clients (internal or external) request services and a team of service providers fulfills them. Existing instances of Chorus are customized for use by web site maintenance teams, enterprise level project management, and other purposes. Perhaps the best thing about Chorus is its simplicity. Many successful deployments have shown that novice non-technical users are able to become immediately productive without training or documentation. Chorus differs from other taskflow management tools because it is tailored to fit your processes and does not require any changes in the way you work now.
The Trio model takes the typical shopping cart metaphor and breaks it into three work segments: the public catalog and ordering system; the admin system allowing the product catalog and pricing to be managed, and a fulfillment agent system dedicated to the team charged with picking and shipping your orders. Trio can handle electronic delivery, e-commerce payment processing, accounting system integration and many other functions.
Orchestra was developed to allow management of large websites to be distributed directly to content matter experts with no expertise in web management or HTML. Content updates are performed by staff you designate and limited to specific areas of the site. Your HR person maintains your job openings, your PR person maintains your press releases, your event staff maintain your event calendar. Orchestra goes well beyond this and can actually allow your divisions (departments, field offices, etc) to maintain and update their own unique website with a unique URL while maintaining your global brand identity standards and central oversight. All user interaction is through web based, simple to use interfaces. Orchestra add-ons include a "nearest location" zip code lookup engine, ability for users to register for upcoming events, and many other features. Orchestra is an ideal solution to solve your website management challenges.
We also develop custom software, modify existing products, and assist with deployment of any application or initiative. We look forward to discussing your challenges and providing a range of solutions and recommendations to solve them efficiently.
