Goodwill Electrical & Mechanical Services | Web Application

https://hr.bizzyness.io/
This would be version 2.0 of the GEMS desktop app, but instead of using Electron to create a desktop app, we moved to Vue to create a web app for easy deployment and fine-graining the different services of the system.

While using the existing back-end service, we used Vue and Nuxt.js to create the app and deployed the site to Google Cloud Run. The app is authenticated by Firebase Authentication; once the user gains access, it can now use the back-end service for processing data. The app uses both the LAMP and Firestore for accessing data. On Firestore, the data involves information on the entire GEMS data and its configuration. Currently, only the HR web app is being utilized.

Goodwill Electrical & Mechanical Services | Accounting and Payroll Desktop App

This ERP system project integrates all the business solutions of the company. It is an in-house project solely to address the business needs of the management part of the company.

This uses Electron to create the app on the desktop, which also involves technologies like JavaScript, Node.js, and REST API to communicate with the back end.

KEY FEATURES

Goodwill Electrical & Mechanical Services | Attendance Mobile Application

Created the mobile application for employees to be used as an interface for inputting attendance using React Native for development.

The app is fully integrated with the back-end system for the main GEMS app. Every entry is saved and automatically reflected in the records when generating payroll.

Goodwill Electrical & Mechanical Services | Back-end Service

This is a back-end service for the entire GEMS system; every front-end side application is connected to this server with REST API.

This uses the LAMP stack technology, which is hosted in GCP and Bitnami. Additionally, some features of the front-end app also use Firebase services, like Firestore, to save specific data. Additionally, most of the apps use Firebase authentication for creating and logging in users.
