ACADEMIC WORK - Development of an information management system for internal meetings

Academic Work is one of Sweden ́s largest staffing and recruitment companies. To facilitate their business, Fastdev has helped to develop an information management system to handle internal meetings.

Background

Academic Work hires and recruits students, academics and young professionals who are at the beginning of their careers. They have offices in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Switzerland. The company collects feedback from over a thousand employees and notes from hundreds of meetings held monthly. With so many employees in different countries and industries, sharing and managing files and finding meeting notes became a real challenge. Prior to Fastdev’s involvement, meeting minutes and lists were written in several different programs such as Word, OneNote and Notepad.

Development of unique tracking system

There were no existing programs that could solve Academic Work’s problem. Therefore, Fastdev developed a unique digital tracking system to handle this. The system made it easier to share files, find meeting notes, but also to find information about employee goals and performances. This greatly assisted the company’s management, team leaders and hundreds of employees.

Several different technologies were used in the development of the system. For the back-end Asp.Net, MVC 5 / Web, Entity Framework 6.x, Azure AD, Azure Storage and SQL Server were used. For front-end CSS3 / LESS, HTML / HTML5, TypeScript, ReactJS / MobX and WebPack 2 were used.

Meetings management screen

The system is a Single Page Progressive Web Application located on the Azure cloud service and interacts with the company´s Active Directory, which is a Microsoft directory service. With Progressive Web Application (PWA), users can continue to work even if they are not connected to the internet.

Academic Work’s decision to use a custom-made system has paid off well. All the necessary information is easily accessible and nothing is forgotten or lost. It has also made it easier to prepare meetings and collaborate with colleagues.
