  • Adhumansoft - Professional Portal (Development)

    This intranet website is an extension of the company’s text application whose target market consists of hospitals and clinics with complex staff working hours. The intranet provides the ability to manage calendar and planning reports, vacation requests, schedule changes, incidents, payroll reporting, and more.

    The main technologies used in developing the front-end of the intranet were HTML5, SCSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and jQuery UI. PHP was used in creating the back-end to communicate with central SOAP web services.

    Most recently, a social network plugin was added to the portal using Bootstrap, Nunjucks, and MySQL in addition to the technologies mentioned above.

    The social network has the ability to create groups of users and roles. For example, groups can be seen from people within a specific department, or read-only groups can be created for pinned announcements. Posts include text formatting and attachment capabilities while groups provide the ability for online and offline direct messaging between members.
