ZoomCare 365 2020

Just prior to the Pandemic, we had an opportunity to work with a client in the medical industry who wanted their website modeled similarly to a competitor. We started with our foundational ERP system, which includes a website builder for easy editing by our customers and us, and developed an additional module to extend the system for locating the closest facility to a visitor of the web page.

The locations module was custom built to reverse geocode a users location, after being granted permission to see where they were physically. Next, we did math calculations to find the facility within closest proximity.

This project is great example of how we leverage open source tools like our fundamental business suite, and expand the system by adding customization. It can also integrate with other systems, like map APIs and direction services.

DaSilva & Father, LLC 2018

David from DaSilva and Father, LLC came to us with a problem, and that was the cost to run email for his business. The provider he was using was charging outrageous fees to increase the storage limits, and David needed lots of storage since he is in the construction industry and often emails plans in the form of large attachments.

SBO provides email service to this construction company based out of the South Shore in MA. We were able to set them up with a low-cost email service they can use on all their devices, and this allowed them to focus on work rather than deleting emails to meet a silly quota.

Cambridge Blockchain, LLC 2015-'16

Contracted as a full-stack developer to help build a method to validate peronal identifial information and documentation against an Ethereum blockchain ledger. Documents and PII are shared between parties, with the capability to expire and revoke permissions granted through a privilege model.

This was a greenfield project, when I arrived the client had an amazing concept but no existing code base. Over the course of 9 months, the vision grew sharper the result was a piece of a software and associated RESTful API documention. The client was happy to have a product to showcase to investors and successfully raised over $10M in funding, with their most recent backer being PayPal. The concept has achieved awards in Blockchain/Innovation competitions, and the result of our effort is being put to test by large financial institutions and insurance agencies.

Valuable lessons were learned in developing this application.
