DigiCoyote Software

Customer Portal

DigiCoyote Software is one of our longest-term partners. A distributed, full-service web design and development firm, DigiCoyote utilizes subcontractors to supplement their in-house team, depending on the scale and breadth of their projects.

We've worked with DigiCoyote since late 2011 on a number of projects in a variety of fields. After experiencing some significant internal revision and debate surrounding our previous project for DigiCoyote, we moved onto a new undertaking for them, for one of their clients in the building automation and monitoring field.

For this project (for which the client name can't be disclosed), we worked with DigiCoyote's back-end team to develop a Sitefinity-based customer portal solution. The client required a portal application to allow their staff and customers to manage service orders and requests, invoices and contracts, as well as create inquiries and manage building locations. Depending on the user's role, they're granted access to either their own services orders and information, or as an administrative users, the data for all customers.

  • Over the past few years, Nick has been a valued senior team member on multiple DigiCoyote projects with our largest clients. Nick's expertise in UX development is evident in his work: whether it be communicating his industry knowledge in team scrum sessions; documenting recommendations; seamlessly integrating multiple technologies; or simply implementing clean code and design.

    Also a skilled communicator, Nick is both very professional and friendly. An asset to any team, or leading any project, I would highly recommend Nick without hesitation.

Technical summary

Our team at Taunt developed a set of full-featured front-end templates for all of the primary content areas of the site. We then worked with DigiCoyote's engineering team to integrate these stand-alone templates with Sitefinity CMS.

We also implemented and customized a variety of HTML5/JavaScript-based controls, primarily from the Kendo UI Web framework, to improve the user experience, including sortable/filterable data grids, calendar controls and auto-completing dropdowns. These data-bound widgets draw from Sitefinity-driven ASP.NET web services as JSON data sources.

Usability guidelines and visual design was provided by a senior designer on DigiCoyote's team, Roanna Clarke Aalto of Aalto Interactive.
