Art Sterritt

Art Sterritt

Art Sterritt is operated by Vonnie Sterritt, who from growing up within the surrounds of the Clutha and now the Manawatu rivers means that water described gorges and plains are so much a part of who she is.

Overwhelming light, skies, seasons and landforms have allowed for an enormous compositional scope which she translates onto her canvas. 

What did Vonnie Steritt require from us?

artsterritgallerySterritt approached us looking for an update to her website in order to meld with her artistic prowess. Prior to this, she had an older website that was not only out-of-date, but was an annoyance to remove/add/modify listings of her work. 

This is made even more of a problem, because not only did she have to pay for support to get any listings changed, this was usually a slow process that wasn't her fault. The slow process also entails the fact that when visitors come to the site, they are not viewing the full catalog of what she has in stock, reducing the chance of a painting being sold. This easily causes loss of business on top of support pay expenditure.

 

How did we accomplish this and what were the results?

artsterritlistingsWe used the CMS Joomla for the website. Using the ZOO component for her art listings, Vonnie is now able to implement her own with no outside support. This was the best option for Vonnie, as now she doesn't need to contact support to modify what she needs done on the site, she is able to do it herself.

Along with that, we used a theme that really melds well with her artistic flair. Without her paintings, it is a basic layout, however, once combined with her art, it really shines through and just looks fabulous.

Overall, the outcome has been greatly positive. Not only does Vonnie now have a site that really melds well with her art, but the ability to edit listings whenever she wants to with no cost except a couple minutes of her time, is fantastic. Since Vonnie cycles through her art rather quickly, she has managed to save a significant amount from support, and increased sales overall due to a quicker rotation of her listings.

Whether you're a sheep farmer, your cows have mastitis, or you have to measure your key performing areas, you'll love what Baletwine has to offer. 

What did Baletwine require from us?

Baletwine approached us wanting to develop a major set of products for them. They wanted a site and 3 applications developed.

The idea was to use the site as a platform to house all the applications they were wanting developed, which was the main focus for them.

How did we accomplish this and what were the results?

Website

baletwinesite2Trio Technology built the marketing website for Baletwine in Joomla using the Joomlart theme JA Cloris.

The website is a simple one page website as it is mainly a platform for all the apps being developed to be under with all the information into just a couple of pages.

The site covers the apps, sample images, contacts, downloads and other essential information.

 

 

Farmboss

baletwinefarmbossThis is a mobile application developed using Phone Gap and HTML5 and is freely available to the website users, looking for agricultural tools on hand.

We designed FarmBoss for Baletwine's vision for a tool to make calculations and decisions for the everyday farmer.

The App uses effective, easy to use tables and charts with the use of JavaScript frameworks to create a user interface that needs no explanation.

FarmBoss contains many packs which can be emailed as csv files. This means that they’re ideal for communicating with staff, consultants, absent shareholders or with your own PC for further evaluation when it suits.

Farmhelp

farmhelpCaptureThe FarmHelp app is a tutorial app designed to help the small/lifestyle farmer cope with the farm chores and functions needed to run a modern and busy farm. From the website;

"Farmhelp is a great resource for information on farming and livestock tasks, using methods that have been tried and tested over 40 years – right on your Android mobile phone and at your fingertips. Whether you're an experienced farmer or starting out with a smallholding, Farmhelp can save you time, money, and get you back to doing what you do best – tending your land, livestock, and allowing your staff to work quickly and safely unsupervised."

We built the back-end functionality for entering and storing the content and image. We also built the XML Parser for moving content from a back-end server to a device. The Android only application was built by Pixel This with Graphic Design by Marshall Creative.

Chart-It

baletwinechartitBaletwine wanted to create a mobile application for technologically advanced farmers to use on the go. The result was an extensive application which provides tools to measure and report on all aspects of the farming business.

The application was developed using a combination of a mobile JavaScript library called Phone Gap, as well as HTML5 and CSS.

Phone Gap is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. This makes development more effective and efficient for the client.

The application was designed with multiple platforms in mind. Through rigorous testing, the application is fully responsive to all mobile and tablet devices. This means you don’t have to worry about having difficulty with navigation and usability no matter what device you decide to use.

Chart-it was designed to be used independent of WiFi and phone signal for those times you are far away from civilization.

Bridge NZ

Bridge NZ

Bridge NZ, originally known as the Independent Bridge Stationery Supplies (IBSS), started as a small business in Palmerston North that specialised in the game of Bridge.

As of 2015, they are located in Whanganui and have developed not only the NZ Bridge Scoring Programme, but the BridgePad as well.

What did Bridge NZ require from us?

bridge exampleBridge NZ approached us with two things in mind. 

Firstly, Bridge NZ needed a way to easily access Club event results across New Zealand, for team events and for Swiss pairs. After a meeting, we decided to create a web app which uses HTML5, CSS and Kendo UI with embedded Razor. This allowed us to create an easy to use, fully functioning application that Bridge NZ and all its clubs can use.

Secondly, Bridge NZ specialise in Bridge products and rely on selling these products. They came to us looking to update their outdated and aging HTML site, as this could no longer be their gateway to selling products.

How did we accomplish this and what were the results?

Results Application

Razor

Razor is a markup syntax based on ASP.NET that lets you embed server-based code (Visual Basic and C#) into web pages.

Server-based code can create dynamic web content on the fly from servers or other web pages.

We used this to generate the results in the web app.

 

Kendo UI

dropdown menuKendo UI Mobile is a performance focused UI framework top of jQuery. Making use of adaptive rendering technology, it emulates native-looking UI on devices without developers having to change anything.

Usage of JavaScript can be made minimal, existing mostly in the ViewModel portion of the MVVM pattern. By that token, it’s the UI components where Kendo UI Mobile really shines.

We used Kendo UI to create a visual appeal of the website while also keeping the website fully responsive on all devices.

 

HTML + JavaScript

These languages were used to glue all the components together creating a web app that fully caters for the customer.

Website

bridge dropdownThe Bridge NZ website that we developed has now been updated with Joomla using a fully customized theme to maintain the websites unique feel while also bringing it into the 21st century.

The website uses a Joomla component called Zoo which is used to display data and information. (e.g. products, club info, etc..)

The website also uses another component called Hika shop which ensures that the shopping cart works flawlessly for their customers.

Bridge NZ now have a web app that is simple and straightforward to use to keep track of results, and have the ability to share them with the organisation.

They also have a modern, easily navigable website. With the upgrade in website design, they have a clearer laid out website, which in turn causes customers to be able to use it better. The happier a customer is with browsing a site with a seamless and easy experience, the higher the chance they will purchase from the site.
