iPhone Calculator App for Oil & Gas Company Sparrow Technology

Sparrow Technology designed a complex proprietary mathematical equation in MS Excel, with many input fields to calculate interference in well heads during drilling in the oil and gas field. Using excel was cumbersome and required extensive knowledge of the software in order to generate proper data.

Krisco Designs created an iphone app which featured a splash screen video to highlight the Sparrow Technology brand and developed a calculator app that allows its users to calculate magnetic interference both easily and accurately.

Database Driven Website with CMS and Custom Modules

Sunnyside Home and Garden needed a visual revamp to their website. They wanted to make adjustments regularly and utilize the website as a better marketing tool. They wanted to become a valuable resource to garden enthusiasts everywhere but didn’t quite know where to start.

We created a solid visually appealing design and incorporated a CMS back-end system for staff to log in to and make updates to web pages. We added blogs, FAQ, a unique custom built plant knowledge base and even newsletters. A custom system was made to handle donation requests. The backend was integrated with MailChimp to handle email newsletters.

Dynamic Forms for the iPhone

Krisco Designs was approached by Rogers Communications to develop a service-based software prototype that allow dynamic forms to be used on an iPhone instantly and with ease.

We built a website that allows users to log in and design their own forms using a Form Builder. Those forms then show up on their iPhones in the EZForms iPhone App. Forms can be saved to a cloud server and instantly viewed on the website. We also integrated QR codes in the forms to allow the iPhone App to scan a printed form and instantly make it accessible through the iPhone.

Augmented Reality for the iPad

Our client wished to create an iPad app where users would see through the iPad camera and be able to see ‘virtual’ waypoints. As the iPad was turned, the waypoints would stay in the same spot in the real world! Once a point was centered a short animation and description about what they were looking at out the window was displayed on the screen. This app was created for an exhibit at Ralph Klein Park in Calgary.
