Core-Exchange Web Service for Railroad Parts now Online
2/6/2012 10:06:00 PM
We were approached by a relatively new customer we had begun managing servers and IT infrastructure for, regarding a website they had purchased that needed help. Their approach was for us to just work with the existing code, which was written in PHP and MySQL, and improve upon it. In investigating the assignment, we decided to quote it with a complete rewrite of the web service. The customer I think didn't realize that at first, that what we proposed was a complete rewrite, because since the estimate was inline with what they had budgeted for the changes and updates, we moved forward and rebuilt the site using Microsoft SQL. In the end, our customer was very pleased and happy with the results.
The site is like an ebay for exchanging railroad parts for the railcars Industry. We are proud to be capable of providing all the IT services we have for this customer, with our development work, website hosting, server maintenance, etc. They really know how to appreciate and use all the talents of our technical staff to their benefit. We now hope to also help Core-Exchange market and promote the updated site to their customer base and beyond. Please visit http://core-exchange.com/ and tell all your friends in the railroad business.
The site was built in .Net and written in C#, with a Microsoft SQL backend. It uses CSS and is W3C compliant for HTML5.
