Microsoft .NET Case Study – Environmental Organization


A large environmental clean-up organization was losing track of its costs as it pertained to specific areas of an environmental job. The company had over seven locations and lacked a consistent method of managing sales and job costs, and management was finding it difficult to track the profitability of particular job or cost centers.


The environmental company had the following challenges:

  • Sharing information among its multiple facilities in a timely fashion.
  • Providing timely, accurate and consistent job costing information to the corporate office so that profit analysis could be performed.
  • Providing information to their clients on the schedule, progress and cost estimates of future work.


Working with the client, we devised a job cost methodology that would be embodied throughout the organization. We created mechanisms via the application that would give customers certain access rights, and “online views” to our newly created web-based solution, which provided their client’s updated information on their specific projects(s). Furthermore, we built the application based on a central database; we based architecture so that there would be one entry point into the application, thereby giving the corporate office instant information regarding their jobs throughout the country.

Profit Improvement & Customer Satisfaction Benefits
Via the new application provided, the client learned of jobs that were no longer in the company’s best financial interest. They were also able to fully analyze the “Cost Groups” concern so that further action could be taken. Their clients expressed satisfaction for having the ability to review the status of their jobs in an on-line fashion without having to wait for updated reports or experience the difficulty when coordinating meetings.

Aptude provided us with Oracle DBA migration support, including an upgrade from Oracle 11.1 to Oracle 11.2, and the project was completed on time and to specifications. The project manager and project consultants were responsive and proactive, resulting in a successful conclusion to the work. I would definitely contract with them again, and have recommended them to other technical offices at the University of Georgia.
