The ability to be ability to calculate gtot from spectral data was of high importance to the project.
Six different languages were used to build the website and the Program not to mention the CRM. The program had to perform hundreds of individual calculations with the data that was available in order to get the desired outcome.
Current members of the organisation are working with a number of different labs of which have a number of different process that they are using. Standardisation was key and a challenge for Mandarin was to get all of the labs in line with our requirements so that the data they provided was of a standard that we found acceptable according to European standards.
As a new website was being created for the database. a brand had to be built around the concept. ES-SO wanted there to be a correlation between the existing logo and the new one. Mandarin blended the well know symbol for databases ( the stacked disks) and blended it with their existing logo.
Creating a brand new program from scratch was no easy task. The internet based program had to upload files and check them for errors. It then had to process the data through 40+ calculations in order to produce a graph. This graph was peer reviewed as part of the online process which could then , one verified be uploaded onto the database.
Ensuring that data was valid and that a correct work-flow was introduced was the first challenge. Fault and error prediction was the first task. Mandarin had to predict how the program would be used and work through possible solutions.

About This Project
Mandarin were tasked with creating a website that could access a database of their members product information. The website also had to have the functionality to be able to upload a file taken from a photo-spectrometer and convert it through software developed by Mandarin into usable data.
This data would then be stored on the database and accessible to Architects Specifiers and Building control managers.
Users of the website also have the ability to view and partake in an online forum developed by Mandarin.
