CLIENT CASE STUDY

Original version

Triplestones was engaged to rebuild www.customguitarpicks.com.au into a modern site with improved design and SEO.

In addition, a core requirement was the inclusion of an online guitar pick designer component; the goal being that the customer can go to the site, upload their custom images/artwork, edit them and see a preview of their final product before submitting and paying for an order in one smooth streamlined and user-freindly process.

A fully featured back-end system would also be needed for order processing, and inventory management.

Triplestones delivered and continues to host the solution in the .NET framework achieving all this, along with standard web store functionality to compliment the custom guitar pick design component. A mix of products can therefore all be ordered together, over a choice of payment methods.


The designer mechanic was delivered via the .NET Framework's image processing suite, meaning changes happen server-side and are then delivered to the client preview window via AJAX. The round-trip delay is offset by the reliability and platform independence of the processing engine.

The site also utilises Triplestone's proprietary simple CMS plug in, in XML storage mode, for WYSIWYG live-in-page end-user content management.

Version 4 - Coming Christmas 2017

The site has been completely rebuilt from the ground up in .NET Core 1.1 with a new site design, logo and pick designer in house at Triplestones.

The major improvement for version 4 is the pick designer which has been moved to the client-side. Delivered using the HTML 5 Canvas specification, the design process is now much more interactive and responsive without the overhead of any server-side processing.

The new order processing engine also includes multi-currency support through both PayPal and dedicated payment gateway integration.


CLIENT CASE STUDY

Venue Management System

The Abbotsford Convent Foundation choose Triplestones to develop and host a bespoke venue management system to handle bookings for the various rooms and spaces at the iconic Melbourne arts and cultural precinct.

The VMS is delivered in a SaaS configuration over the web to local workstations and roaming tablets - enabling the taking of bookings on the move. As well as a richly interactive calendar view with click-drag event editing, the VMS also handles the financial side of things with a highly customised invoicing module that off-the-shelf solutions could not match to exact requirements.


A public facing portal page allows venue enquiries to be taken and fed as potential bookings straight into the system. Booking conversions can then take place at the push of a button.

Attendance is monitored against configurable limits and allows for detailed capacity planning - essential for such a busy venue with many spaces available for concurrent hire.

An equipment hire module is also included that automatically raises orders with suppliers based on the week's bookings and requirements.

A detailed suite of reports polishes off the solution, exporting out to Excel or PDF formats.

CLIENT CASE STUDY

Core service

Triplestones has provided technical management of the Drifters Creek site, and its associated sites since 2014 when their remote location on the VIC/NSW border proved difficult in sourcing locally the necessary technical expertise for planned expansion.

In addition to providing updates and technical support to the core Camping and Outdoors shopping site, we also provide domain/email management and consultation to the team at Drifters Creek.

After having written some custom modules for their back-end services, Triplestones also took over hosting of the site in 2015.

CLIENT CASE STUDY

A LONG HISTORY

In the seven years leading up to the founding of Triplestones Software, director and lead developer Mark Godfrey was a senior developer with ArtsHub and was lead architect on their .NET platform rebuild.

Their 'What's On' listing engine incorporates Triplestones' proprietary listing priority algorithm for making sure articles are listed according to importance, relevance and urgency.

A continuing relationship has seen Triplestones create their repeat billing system, an event booking module and their core listings engine.
