Trade show app development

We developed a web application to be used at a trade show stand for a large engineering company. The application comprises a React-based frontend and a Node.js backend and runs on tablets at the trade show. Its frontend features Responsive Design for display on visitors' mobile devices.

We integrated the application with the client's Manufacturing Execution System (MES), enabling users of the app to schedule and monitor orders, as well as viewing the machine's Key Performance Indicators in real time.

Document Search Engine

We developed an Apache SolR and Python based search engine for internal documents for a mobile telecommunications provider. Alongside "traditional" information retrieval algorithms, TextRank is used to display a short document summary as a search result preview. Particularly helpful is the ability to search for complete texts, as wall as keyword searches, in order to find similar documents in the archive.

Marketing Automatization / Retargeting

We integrated Google Tag Manager for a large eCommerce client. This enables the retargeting of customers using automatic targeted ads and mailings. The campaigns are based on data from product views, carts and orders. Using Google Tag Manager also allows integration of further services, as well as supporting detailed data analysis.

Extension of a Contract Termination Predictor

We assisted a telecommunications provider in extending a contract termination predictor originally developed by us. The predictor calculates the likelihood that private customers will terminate their contract within the next 100 days. As well as the general customer and contract infomation used previously, new events such as customer service contacts and shop visits are included in the expanded prognosis. This delivers more precise information to customer service centre and point-of-sales agents about the strength of the customer relationship, allowing even better personalized customer care.
