Selected Projects


Health and Wellness Marketing Materials Portal

A large health insurance management firm engaged Tecture to develop a gated “library” of  “maintaining good health” marketing materials for their contracted companies’ HR departments. The management company staff was spending a great deal of time manually providing the materials — fliers, calendars, emails, newsletters, posters and even videos — to their clients. The idea was to develop an online, self-service portal from which their clients could select materials to develop their own “keeping healthy” campaigns and reminders for their employees. Tecture developed the idea into a working product. 

In the process Tecture: Conducted a through discovery and requirements gathering process • Conducted stakeholder focus groups • Developed a user approval process with white-listing and black-listing • Organized the content by topics and content types • Implemented a robust search engine • Developed a sharable collections tool • Designed visual tutorials to increase user adoption • Implemented full usage metrics and reporting

Celsis: Diverse Technologies/Seamless Customer Support

Celsis, a biotechnology company delivering rapid microbial detection systems (since acquired by Charles River Laboratories), asked Tecture to deliver a customer portal. We conducted a website platform technology selection process prior to any implementation of the website. We evaluated various CMS and portal platforms that would integrate seamlessly with Celsis’ marketing automation system, ERP and CRM. Tecture selected a single CMS that could serve both website content management and customer portal functions. We then built a middleware component to map customers, their accounts, purchases, equipment, reagents and contracts from other databases to the website. The result is a unified system that matches customers with their purchased products.

Charles River Laboratories Microbial Portal: Easy, Secure Software and Documentation Downloads

After Charles River Laboratories acquired Celsis — including the customer portal Tecture had built and maintains (see project above) — the firm asked us to implement a consolidated Microbial Solutions customer portal that would encompass both its Celsis and Endosafe product lines. Due to an impending major software release of its flagship product, we prioritized first implementing a simplified version of the portal with a single product (the Endoscan V, version 6 software release) with all its related documentation. Customers who purchase the software are securely invited to the portal to register their purchase and download the software and documentation. Initial registrants can invite additional teammates from their company to access the portal and the software. The portal allows Charles River to push new software releases and documentation to its customers quickly and efficiently. The portal will eventually include all products and related documentation for the Celsis and Endosafe product lines.
