Geeks on the way, Development ( 2005 – 2007 )
Geeks on the way, previously The geek patrol, Is,was a small company of around 40-70 employees, They needed a technology integration to accommodate their size and marketplace expansion, All of my work was not public facing in this project.
I integrated their incoming phone call handling software teriskas into their Customer relations management software SugarCRM and
enabled an automated Ip phone integration so the incoming call would bring up the client history on the operators screen when they pick the call up.
Also added the functionality to SugarCRM to propose the nearest tech to the client at the time of the scheduled appointment to reduce the traveling time and cost for the tech.
Built an online payment portal for the techs to use, it would allow the customer to pay for the services and software on-line, and integrated the payment system into SQL-ledger ERP system, so their accounting data would be continually up to date.
