The Client

Manage It is a unique Australian company that supports Australians with disabilities by providing them with a wide range of online services designed to help them and their families become more independent and take greater control of their lives. One such of these services is Self Manager. Self Manager is a system designed primarily for users with disabilities, allowing them to manage their care staff's details, including payments, timesheets and contact information as well as providing a wide range of reporting and management features to easily review performance and costings.

AB Web Developers has been privileged to count Manage It as one of its long-time clients, with a close relationship being held between the two companies for several years.

The Challenge

AB Web Developers had been previously tasked with developing the whole Self Manager system from the ground up. The first version of the Self Manager system had been in operation for over 3 years and was quite successful with allowing Australians with disabilities to manage their employees, timesheets and financials. However, it had started to show its age and with the latest trends in internet browsing, most notably with mobiles and tablets, the old system simply was not good enough anymore.

In 2014, AB Web Developers was tasked with redesigning the system.

The challenge was set: To bring this older system in line with the latest browsing and website trends - in particular, mobile and tablet browsing; as well as developing a more modern and contemporary interface that's pleasing to the eye but still very accessible to the disability community.

The Solution

Leveraging the flexibility and ease of the incomparable Twitter Bootstrap CSS and JavaScript framework, as well as the latest version of the CakePHP framework, AB Web Developers set out to completely redesign Self Manager to be responsive and presentable by inserting the Bootstrap Grid System into the old templates, and also refactoring the backend code to be faster, easier to maintain and more powerful.

AB Web Developers have always offered fantastic customer service, which is why I have been a long term customer of AB Web. Ben in particular always goes above and beyond with any of my queries (most of them silly at times) and Simon is always very thorough with his explanation at explaining things. AB Web has a great team and I look forward to continue working with AB Web in the future.
