Project Synopsis

CTS was responsible for developing a web-based literature fulfillment application for its client. The application provided the client with the ability to send financial investment-based literature to brokers and individual investors through the use of an online application. Through the touch of a button, order information is sent from the client's database to the third party vendor responsible for fulfilling the orders. The orders are then sent to the designated recipients. CTS assisted the client in all phases of the project lifecycle—from functional and database design reviews to the development, testing, and implementation of the actual application. CTS also provided additional maintenance and support after the implementation and assisted in the development of post-install enhancements to the application.
