The Wireless communications industry is a complex universe of options and choices for today’s consumer. The mega-trends in communications have fundamentally changed the way people communicate. Using ColdFusion, CF Webtools has a team that produces efficient code for one of the largest third-party retail sales and support processes for wireless products and services in the world. Intricate collaboration is involved with major carriers – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T*Mobil – through this third-party provider, to build and maintain sophisticated admin tools and public-facing pages. The scope of the admin tool includes but isn’t limited to: tracking inventory, tracking brands, managing products within brands, managing campaigns, managing sales and reporting data. A nifty, customized e-commerce solution is also in place too.

The Education sector is widely diverse. As such, the demands for web applications have such a wide spectrum that it takes developers who are “fleet of foot” to support the requirements. With ColdFusion serving as the foundation, CF Webtools team creates clean, organized and well commented code that supports diverse processes and systems. Our expertise has contributed to building specific functionality which includes maintaining a subscription based e-learning product, maintaining an admin side management toolset, sustaining and improving an assessment results tracking module and implementing new functionality to support further professional development for educators as required.

We love to support the enterprising entrepreneur who has a vision AND a budget to birth that vision. Startups can offer the best opportunity for creating that code-base we all dream of: well structured, highly organized, sublimely efficient, intuitive and scalable. However, the reality of the matter is that (usually) the moo-la doesn’t match the dream. CF Webtools team will work closely with you even before the first line of code is ever written. Our owner, Mark Kruger, has an uncanny ability (some say it’s a “gift”) to see the big picture and verbalize the best options regarding IT strategies and your budget. Mark will invariably pitch in with his thoughts during these pre-coding conferences.

CF Webtools has an impressive footprint in supporting the financial sector using ColdFusion. The financial industry is incredibly dynamic and as such tends to use ColdFusion to its maximum potential. CF Webtools maintains mission-critical code and servers, consuming streaming quotes and a host of financial data to help our clients achieve their business objectives. Our roots in this sector go deep as our founder and first 3 employees all cut their teeth on financial applications for DTN Telvent (subsequently a customer of ours). Our historical experience working with charting applications, fundamentals, technicals and aggregate stock, options and commodities feeds leads to rapid applications development in this space. You will have to tell us what you want but you will not have to explain a covered call or drone on about moving averages or buy signals. We have a pool of in-house institutional knowledge that helps us leap ahead to your specific requirements. We also have extensive experience with 401K programming, defining benefits, and portfolio rebalancing. Our Project Management team loves developing sophisticated systems that are easy-to-use but have a solid and scalable foundation.

Our footprint in the industrial and manufacturing industry primarily revolves around building tools to do the “heavy-lifting” using ColdFusion. CF’s rapid application development resulting in a shorter time to market delivery is an appealing trait our clients in this industry require. CF Webtools excels at end-to-end, complex systems development. We are experts at building warranty management systems, vehicle ordering applications, vehicle inventory and management systems, dealer locator systems and connecting appropriate aspects of these various systems together to produce long-term solutions for our clients. Furthermore, CF Webtools provides on-going maintenance and enhancement development for these systems. Besides RAD, ColdFusion ties quite economically to 3rd party REST APIs which we leverage to our clients’ advantage. The “baked in” tools of the ColdFusion application server, (ex. Event gateway functionality), further provide us the ability to save time in development. Our support doesn’t stop with the tools we build, though, as CF Webtools also provides front-end support for multiple, exciting heavy-equipment brochure sites!

Portals and bagels! What a concept. CF Webtool’s industry leading ColdFusion experts augment a team of highly skilled in-house developers to provide every system required to efficiently support a $15MIL revenue a year insurance provider. When we say every system we mean EVERY SYSTEM from front-end client-facing pages to an intricate agent portal to marketing reports to financial analysis to whatever makes this company keep on ticking year after year after year. Enhancements and needs are prioritized based upon intense communications between the IT team and end users.

CF Webtools Project Management team works closely and listens attentively to our clients in the marketing arena to provide intelligent solutions in this challenging industry. Our experts leverage the built-in tools ColdFusion has to offer to provide state-of-the art, efficient code. CRM systems, campaign management systems, Social Media integration, SEO tools, email Marketing systems, DB engineering, industry research and statistics systems, integrating 3rd party APIs, and payment gateway support are few of the many daily systems and processes that CF Webtools builds and maintains.

We embrace non-profits and fully support them with our ColdFusion proficiency. Working with non-profits, we understand the cash flow challenges and pace our development “burn rate” to match the client-set budget. CF Webtools has been instrumental in building sites end-to-end, creating structured support for user’s account and the co-responding admin tool to manage users, customizing e-commerce solutions and implementing client designs. We find that many Non-Profits benefit from our staff of knowledgeable IT experts in terms of planning a long-term strategic roadmap for their organizations.

CF Webtools has vast experience in this sector. Over the past three years we have literally programmed nearly 7,000 hours in support of clients in this space. ColdFusion lends itself well to the type of complex systems required to support our clients in this field. It is robust enough to handle the heavy database usage we see our clients requiring. From customized ERP and CRM systems to advanced testing facility web-site support, CF Webtools tackles all the heavy lifting required to maintain secure and smooth 24/7 operations.

This broad spectrum requires business acumen, comprehensive technical knowledge and just plain ‘ole common sense to provide service exceeding our client’s expectations. A typical day at CF Webtools involves knowledge-sharing amongst our crack staff of ColdFusion developers covering such topics as best practices, smartest technology to use to accomplish ‘XYZ’, or even better yet, input from the grand old Guru himself – Mark Kruger. Our clients in this space offer us unique challenges as the tools and systems they use are generally customized to the “Nth” degree with legacy code which never really seems to be commented adequately! We enjoy the opportunity to engage with new clients in this arena and to learn about their businesses and how they succeed doing business the way they do business.

Yes, believe it or not, you can build a successful ecommerce system using ColdFusion (with whistles and bells, even!). From classic auto parts to jewelry to firearms to coffee and underwear we’ve been there. As light-hearted as this all sounds, we all know that ecommerce systems and the supporting admin and ancillary systems touching the ecommerce system are very, very intricate and complex. The support structures we’ve offered to these clients includes CF Webtools providing 100% of the support to CF Webtools providing assets assisting the client’s in-house resources. CF Webtools also provides server configuration/tuning as well as security services for many of our ecommerce clients.

CF Webtools ColdFusion experts creates the support structure for a nationally known high-school athletic website provider. Support for importing a massive data feed to allowing users to use a scheduling system, use an email blast system, access and upload photos, and more are all required. In addition, in the travel industry, CF Webtools has built end-to-end booking systems incorporating multiple web-services, creating a sophisticated admin tool and assisting in the on-going maintenance of such systems.
