ShakingHand was brought in to upgrade and fix this troubled (at the time) project. We completely re-wrote the consumer-facing UI and the search algorithms. The result is a very user-friendly, fast and desktop-like Rich Internet Application providing comprehensive information about recycling anything in the Metro Vancouver area.
The live site can be viewed here.
This site has now been provided to the cities of North York and Santa Monica for their own use.
Kurt has that holy grail of outstanding communication skills and extremely robust development expertise every project manager hopes to find, yet rarely does. He jumped into a difficult role and got deliverables back on schedule within a matter of a few weeks. He is a fine caretaker of usability principals and user-centred design. Kurt was a breath of fresh air on my project and I will seek to bring him onto any project I can in the future.
