Since 2008, Aquent DEV6 has worked with FCA on a dozen projects and counting.  The bulk of our work has been with the Mopar Service division where we have performed front-end, heavy-lifting development in the automation of service technician and service advisor systems.

Our first project was to help develop a new auto diagnostic application that is used by service technicians around the world. This application improves how Chrysler automotive service technicians diagnose and fix vehicle problems. The success of this project led to Aquent DEV6 working on a mobile, multi-touch enabled version of this application. The mobile version was built using Angular 5 and targets the major tablet platforms. Aquent DEV6 has also helped FCA with other HTML5 mobile projects including an application that streamlines the process of checking-in customers at service departments and creating service work orders.

Aquent DEV6 is a trusted vendor for FCA, providing both application development support and consulting. We train FCA personnel on the latest web mobile app devopment technologies and also instill new best practices within FCA around the use of coding frameworks (e.g. Angular 5 framework for JavaScript development).

Summary: Enterprise training – Facebook Development Platform – React JS – React Native – Train the Trainer

Facebook is the worldwide leader in the provision of online social media and social networking services.  Facebook has more than 2 billion monthly active users as of June, 2017.

In 2016, Facebook set out a goal of building a training program to train 10,000 + developers around the world on the Facebook Development Platform.  In many areas of the world, students still prefer a live training experience with an in-class instructor. In order to train 10,000 students live on the Facebook Development Platform over a relatively short time-frame, Facebook needed to enable and certify 100 trainers in key international locations who would, in turn, train 100 of their own students in their respective local geographies.

Working closely with Facebook managers based in Menlo Park and Indonesia, DEV6 built an in-depth “MasterClass for Developers” instructor-led course which provides deep training on the key components of the Facebook Development Platform including Facebook Login, Account Kit, Messenger Bots, and Analytics.  DEV6 has delivered key Train-The-Trainer Masterclass deliveries on behalf of Facebook in Jakarta, Oakland and Nairobi. At this stage, almost 80 instructors around the world have taken the MasterClass and, in turn, many hundreds of developers have been trained on the Facebook Development Platform by these instructors.

Aquent DEV6 was engaged to develop a mobile app as an alternative to a paper based Psychotropic Medication Monitoring Checklists (PMMC) system. This state-of-the-art tool gives patients and caregivers an easy-to-use method of tracking medications and side effects on mobile and desktop devices. Making a switch to a digital tool reduces paper clutter and increases checklist completion rates via digital reminders. Data is also securely collected in a central database that allows for authorized researchers to easily analyze the collected information. In building the app, Aquent DEV6 utilized AngularJS and Cordova, helping to ensure that the resulting HTML5 app is robust, employs best practices, and is easily maintained.

The Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) is an independent, non-profit research organization that evaluates health care services and delivery to meet changing health care needs.

Aquent DEV6 has worked with ICES on a variety of projects including a mobile version of its Emergency Heart Failure Mortality Risk Grade (EHMRG) calculator. This calculator helps physicians reduce the number of heart failure deaths and unnecessary hospital admissions by using a computer-based algorithm that calculates each patient’s individual risk of death. ICES wanted to improve access to this important risk model algorithm by making it available on physician's smartphones. The app utilizes the AngularJS framework and the Twitter Bootstrap UI library. Aquent DEV6 also created an AngularJS based version of the EHMRG calculator that works on all major mobile platforms, as well as current desktop browsers. ICES plans to replace the current web-based version with the new AngularJS app so as to have only one source code to maintain.

The app applies responsive design to detect the user’s device and offer up the most appropriate interface. Having previous experience with healthcare apps, we applied our understanding of the importance of simplifying the data entry workflow and providing response validation / error checking.
