Custom Web Applications

We understand that off-the-shelf and out-of-the-box solutions are not right for everyone. IMC has the technical expertise on staff to create custom applications or assist with any database or other API integration.

Online Databases

Online databases make it easy for you to share information with your clients, customers, and remote staff. We can help you create a database structure that fits your needs, your customer’s needs, and your budget. Our database development experience includes simple tasks such as scheduling as well as complex tasks such as product configurators and eCommerce solutions. We have built financial reporting systems, real-time database integration systems, product configurators, and custom database applications for a number of customers.

Sample Work

Anderson Instrument Company has worked with IMC to create applications that have helped reduce the number of calls to customer service by automating some processes and providing Anderson’s customer service representatives with the time to work with customers who need to talk to a representative about their particular custom applications. For Anderson, we have:

  • Created a real-time Return Materials Authorization (RMA) database application. Anderson’s Distributors can login and enter an RMA request or retrieve the status of a pending RMA.
  • Created an online product configurator and custom shopping cart. Anderson’s Distributors, once logged in, can configure any one of a number of their products. Distributors can save common configurations for future use. They can then order the products online.
  • Created an application that allows customers to enter a product serial number and retrieve Material and Calibration Certifications for that product. The application creates a PDF “on the fly” based on the information stored in Anderson’s databases, using real time data from both MySQL and SQL Server databases.

Websites can be much more than static brochure pages. The possibilities are endless:

  • Integrate your website with order tracking or shipping information
  • Customize your shopping cart–providing features unique to your products
  • Provide reporting tools and real-time information for your customers
  • Create interactive product configurators
  • Introduce a calendar to keep your visitors informed
  • Update your site using content management tools
  • Keep your users up to date with a blog
  • Provide an online forum for your customers
  • Create a custom database to meet the needs of your business and customers

Real Estate Websites

We have over 15 years of experience working with real estate agents. Our custom real estate WordPress integrations ensure that your website will work with MLS IDX and RETS systems and remain compliant with any rules and regulations in your state.

  • Easily add and remove resource links

Sample Work

The Scott Varley Team at Keller Williams works with IMC to keep their real estate web site up to date and current with their current listings and information. Scott’s site is combination of data from Capital Region MLS and data entered by Scott’s team. For this real estate website, IMC has:

  • Created scripts that automatically grab data, anytime of day or night, from a Real Estate Transaction Server
  • Created an application that will pull data from MLS and extra data that Scott’s team uploads to the site to create a Fact Sheet for each property on demand. Scott’s branding is on the fact sheet, which can be printed, saved, and emailed to friends and family.
  • Set up WordPress to help Scott’s team manage the new construction, agent information and photos, and virtual tours.
