CASE STUDY 1
Our client in the Healthcare Industry wanted to custom develop and configure a Health Care Server to be accessed by both healthcare professionals and patients for various health- related purposes. The patients would be given hardware (a black box) that would be set- up at their homes and connected to the Health Care Server over a telephone line. The patients were also given measuring instruments to keep track of their temperature, pressure, ECG, weight, etc… which were also connected to the black box.
The black box would be able to connect to all instruments, take readings, and upload the information to the health care server. The healthcare professionals would take the patients' readings on a set schedule. Based on the schedule, the black box would give alerts (sounds) to the patient.
The patient data would be uploaded to the server and then checked by the healthcare professionals for any abnormal values (based on a set of limits for each measure set for each patient). Corrective measures would be taken based on the values of the measures taken.
Solution: Checker Server: This server collects all the data from the devices and stores it to the database. It also creates alerts if required. This was implemented using Java Servlets and Apache Tomcat Server
Main Server: This server acts as the Health Care Server where the Healthcare Professionals can connect and perform the required operations, such as adding new patients, editing patient information, setting limits, setting schedules and alerts, and viewing measures taken by the patients. The system was implemented using .Net, C# and SQL Server as backend using IIS on the Windows platform.

The bank had already developed a core banking system and wanted the added telephone banking system to be integrated with it. The services would include balance inquiry, check book request, the last six transactions, and bill payments.
The system was implemented using Asterisk server software on a Redhat Linux server. Digium cards were used as interface cards to the PSTN. The Asterisk was configured and integrated to the existing Sybase database using Java code. Sound files (.wav) files were recorded for each of the voice requirements and installed on the Asterisk server. A voice menu was designed for the user to select the various options. All the telephone banking calls were logged onto a database for usage analysis and help desk purposes.

Automotive after market is a huge business with various manufactures, suppliers, traders dealing with numerous spare parts of vehicles. It was a daunting challenge for one of our customers who had a fairly large customer base in automotive spare parts after market. ACES – the After market Catalog Enhanced Standard were the standard for the management and exchange of automotive catalog applications data. With ACES, suppliers can publish automotive data with standardized vehicle attributes, parts classifications and qualifier statements. ACES also prescribed a XML format data for trading partners to use in exchanging vast amounts of catalog information electronically. Vehicle Configuration database (VCdb), the Parts Categorization database (PCdb) also had huge amount of data which has to be integrated by the customer in his proposed application.
The parts, automobile, price list data were available from various manufacturer in heterogeneous formats. Automobile and part mapping data were also published various formats by manufacturers.
The customer wanted an online application which helps him to create a catalog of all the spare parts of all the existing manufactures integrating all the above said data and also sell and ship the after market automotive parts directly from the main warehouse and/or a network of manufacturers and warehouses to automotive shops and consumers.
Challenges: Our main challenges in this project were Complexity, heterogeneity of data and data formats which need to be ported into the system. Complexity of the various parameters in the automotive domain and its dependencies.
Solution: We carefully learned about the automobile domain and the various data standards and formats in which data is available. We analyzed the customer requirement and came out with a unique solution which took into account all concerns of the customers as well as the complexity of data ETL process.
We developed the solution with .Net framework with application developed in C# with MSSQL server as default database. We created a customized tool which extracts, filter and import required data in various formats into the database. We also developed a shopping portal where the customer could sell and ship the after market automotive parts directly from the main warehouse and/or a network of manufacturers and warehouses to automotive shops and consumers. It creates value in the supply chain by reducing inefficiencies, innovating and implementing cost savings, offering high quality service to high quality customers.

CANCER CLINICAL TRIAL REPOSITORY/MANAGEMENT
More than being just a fund raising organization for Cancer Research, the Client is a prime supporter of cancer research projects that aim to advance the understanding and treatment of cancer. Client supports researchers, both domestically and abroad, at every stage of their career, representing a global commitment to understanding, preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer.
Since the client's distributed workforce provides research, sample collection, storage and distribution of rare and highly characterized biological samples such as disease state plasma to meet clinical research management requirements, a decision was made to move all key operational systems to the cloud as a means of becoming more efficient. The company recognized that a cloud-based file server that allowed the team to easily access and share large files and findings from anywhere in the world was critical to the virtualization strategy.
Research related data, sample notes, findings, pictures of cell based study and many more critical data had to be kept safe but accessible to the people concerned on a need to know basis. Collaboration through file sharing and syncing is quickly becoming a critical component of everyday business processes. Public cloud services like Dropbox, Box, and many others are popular because of their ease of use. The growing popularity of consumer software has led to the rise of unauthorized software use, commonly known as Shadow IT. Storing your enterprise-critical documents and data on someone else’s public servers carries serious business and compliance risks.
The Client was utilizing 20-25 secure email subscription services to transfer small files and emails securely. However, according to a senior resource with the client, “the file transfer size limitation, lack of organizational control, and complexity for the remote user led to a re-evaluation of available market options.” As the client transfers mostly confidential research data and provides a significant amount of security control was also a must. The diverse requirements of the client led them to choose PennieDrive. “PenniesDrive has aided in automating our processes in Clinical trials” mentioned a researcher.
Unlimited File Size
Many research files exceeded 1 GB in sizes the ability to remove that barrier entirely was huge. The Java uploader, combined with flexible file size limitations within PenniesDrive, allowed even the largest research data sets to be transferred successfully.
One Way File Traffic
Workers at partner facilities received credentials to send files. Client, however, did not want to be liable for employees retrieving those files later from their personal computer at home. “We knew it was important to manage the flow of documents,” a senior resource stated. “PenniesDrive gave us a solution that worked well for both end users and system admins.” The granular file controls allow remote users to transfer files/folders to the server and verify their transfer, but then ensures that the files cannot be re-downloaded except by authorized employees. Detailed audit logs ensure accurate documentation of who, when and where files are accessed.
EC2 makes strong financial sense for Cancer Research firms
While keeping aside every penny to add in to the pool of fund raising for cancer research, the client obviously did not want a system that would increase their operational overhead. PenniesDrive came up with the decision of using AWS. The most obvious cost advantage of AWS is that it has literally zero setup costs: you use the same Amazon account you use to order random junk off the Internet, click a button, and start paying for servers, by the hour. You only pay for the boxes when they run, and you only pay for storage that’s actually in use, so your startup costs are minimal, and it encourages experimentation at the hardware level: spin up 10x more capacity than you need, run load tests, and then spin them back down until you really need them. That’s not just convenient, that’s revolutionary. As with many other aspects of AWS, such a large quantitative difference becomes a qualitative one.
100% behind Your Firewall
Unlike many cloud file sync and share, PenniesDrive does not store client’s data. Client has greater control about what is being synced and shared. Client considerably reduces the risk of data leaks, and it allows them to be compliant with data protection laws (HIPAA, Ferpa, UK Data Protection Act, German Federal Data Protection Act, etc.).
Familiar User Experience -- PenniesDrive provides a native user experience most researchers are already familiar with. Zero training required.
PenniesDrive is BYOD friendly: support for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android are all available for free.
Securely access documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and any other type of file, whether in the office or on the road.
Easily and securely collaborate with researchers as well as authorized vendors, customers, and partners.
All data and all versions of files shared through PenniesDrive are captured. Recover a previous version in two clicks
Search Media of your choice! Absolutely hassle-free
Extremely easy to use and well-designed interface
User friendly and highly interactive UI to help researchers spend the least time in saving their work
Knowledge sharing in any format – Audio, Video, Image
While building an application for a cause as noble as cancer research, we had to incorporate every format of capturing knowledge may it be audio, video, images or documents. PenniesDrive has gone an extra mile by including a feature to automatically convert the videos into HD.
With millions of images, audio and video being vaulted, searching and recovering them should also be at the tip of the fingers. PenniesDrive sensed this as a critical requirement to make it a time-efficient system. Keyword or tag search is a unique feature of PennieDrive.
Data Security and Access Control
Clinical data is not only sensitive but highly personal. PenniesDrive values each invention, each finding and each version of your data. Access to this rich research data is restricted and is available only on a need to know basis. Authorized users get access to authorized information based on set policies and guidelines.
COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
There are many fine organizations offering community corrections facilities and services in the Philadelphia region. What sets our client apart are many years of not simply preparing offenders for the outside, but equipping them for real, lasting change inside themselves, even while they’re still in the security of the system. Our esteemed client’s programs include Behavioral assessment, Individual & group counseling, & other services designed to foster deeper network/connections, job interview & computer literacy training, Education/GED opportunities and Transitional support counseling. Our client ensures that when an inmate walks free after a tenure with them, he/she not only walks free but is self-sufficient to live a wholesome, responsible and clean life.
Case Files, offender-related information, Behavioral Assessment feedback and notes, First Information Reports, Policies and many more sensitive data had to be kept safe but accessible to the people concerned on a need to know basis. Day to Day reporting, Pass generation, Schedule Creation were activities that were being handled without a systematic and clean approach. Client needed a system to better manage their internal processes, especially with the geographically dispersed workforce and rapid growth; the new application would not only need to automate the rehabilitation process, but also accommodate the transparency and accountability required by the American Correctional Association (ACA).
Our Client’s community corrections, day reporting and new facilities design programs have created important, lasting change, helping reduce recidivism and increase hope for both the individual and the community. But to automate each of these close to 200 processes with no factor in common was a herculean task. With umpteen proprietary workflows to be formed and many more individual and group reports to be generated, Pumex had just opened the Pandora’s box of automating their processes.
“Currently we manage offenders who reside in our buildings, but we also supervise some who live at home. We foresee a huge number of our population becoming those offenders who live elsewhere, but need to check in with us at our facility for other programs and purposes. Therefore our ability to track them in many different programs and possibly at many different locations was the most critical in our outcome measures and our success at getting our processes right. Pumex did this with so much ease that now we can sit back and relax” said a senior resource with the Client.
Pumex decided to build a custom end-to-end Inmate management system. A team of 4 designed and developed the solution using Java Spring framework, MySQL 5.5, JQuery, and AJAX. The new inmate Information and Management System - is a web-based application that manages all activities related to an inmate registered with the Community correction centre whether in house or away, including:
• Schedule management - assignment of an inmate per skill based on availability, Record details of every schedule, including addresses, wages, contacts and comments
• Case Management - provides a centralized view of all case files of each inmate Automate the process to attach each case file based on availability to a specific inmate and maintain prescriptive treatment plans, incident/ violation reports, medication, and disciplinary/ grievance procedures.
• Offender Movement – Process automation of Pass generation, Headcount, Timely room checks;
• Security - support for all security related tasks like Log residents in and out of the centre, including their signature and the exact date and time, Keep track of each resident’s property
• Acts and Policies – Document and maintain all the federal acts and policies related to each verdict and case file.
• Accounting processes - Enter incomes and disbursements for residents, Auto-deduct amounts by the resident’s program or a specific resident, such as court costs or subsistence, Cut checks directly from the system, Generate billing reports in Excel spreadsheet format at the click of a button
• Document Management – Referral Packets, BOP Statement of Work, Inmate Handbook, Employment Confirmation, Medical Furloughs, Disciplinary Packages, Chain of Custody Forms and many more
• Analytical Dashboards - provide first-hand information on pending tasks for the day, notifications to the supervisor, Alerts on breach of any rule
• Room Searches/Housekeeping/Maintenance - Ability to report issues tied to the room and or offender. Generation of Incident report regarding that area for damage to property by the offender
The iterative approach taken by Pumex and its ability to reflect feedback during the development process ensured that Pumex’s final application fully reflected their user needs; the Platform’s build-to-change support also makes it easy to change the system as needed, ensuring that Client’s internal processes always align with the needs of the business.
Familiar User Experience
The easy-to-use interface require little or even no end-user training. This simplifies the roll-out to large supervisor teams and ultimately increases user adoption.
Support for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android are all available for free.
Keyword or tag search is a unique feature of the Inmate Management System
Data Security and Access Control
Offender data is not only sensitive but highly personal. Pumex understands the gravity of the information being saved and therefore Access to the same is restricted and is available only on a need to know basis. Authorized users get access to authorized information based on set policies and guidelines.
This system is sophisticated enough to know where to pull massive amounts of information from several areas of the databases but simple enough to use for every program and within all segments of client’s company – while still being user friendly. The system is not only flexible enough to grow and expand beyond client’s current capacity but also into additional types of corrections management
People and programs may be located at different buildings at different times and may need to use several different programs in their schedule. Therefore, our system was provisioned to have mechanisms built in to accommodate variations.
