Elsevier approached Jarvus to develop an iPad-optimized web app to expand the reach of their award-winning ClinicalKey service, previously only accesible via desktop. The application streamlines access to Elsevier’s vast catalog of medical journals, textbooks, and other reference material, and the iPad version will be available to subscribers in the near future. Design by Electronic Ink. Developed with Sencha Touch 2.
Jarvus collaborated with Philly design firm Electronic Ink to develop a retirement planning web application for SunGard’s WealthStation suite of products. Built with Ext JS 4.
For the third year in a row, Jarvus designed and built the PhillyTechWeek.com website and mobile app. This year’s website features a mobile-responsive layout as well as an improved calendar. The app, available on the iOS App Store and Google Play, allows you to bookmark events for a custom schedule.
Our friends at EduCon needed a site for their annual symposium about the future of education. The goal was to create a hub for attendees that would enable them to register for the conference, organize official talks and informal meetups, and build a personal schedule of bookmarked events for the weekend. Jarvus built a fast, modern site with a responsive design for easy use while on the move. We also added live streaming so that virtual attendees could check out each session as it happened.
Jarvus has an ongoing partnership with web.illish.us and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania to build Sencha-Touch–based mobile apps for the school, as well as streaming live events on the web.
Wharton Undergrad provides a resource and event listings for undergraduate students at Wharton.
Wharton Portal offers general school information such as news, and student and faculty directories.
Wharton Connect is a networking tool for Wharton alumni to connect, organize, and stay in touch.
EMBA Live Stream
When UPenn’s Wharton school hosted their annual EMBA conference at two venues in San Francisco and Philadelphia, they needed a way to increase their viewership beyond the 600 attendees. Jarvus and web.illish.us’ solution provided a live stream on the web, with a chat room for realtime discussions as well as an iPad moderation console that enabled the event hosts to take questions from the online audience and present them to be answered by panelists.
The legendary Christie’s auction house in New York asked us to rebuild their existing iPhone app. They wanted to support both iOS and Android, and they wanted some new features such as “My Christie’s” user login, absentee bidding, and the ability to view featured articles and videos of their collection. The updated app is now available on the App Store and Android Market.
The Philadelphia Eagles wanted to build a mobile app to enhance the 2011 NFL Draft fan experience. Jarvus helped the Eagles’ online marketing team develop a concept for a fun app, and then we built it—for iOS, Android, and the web—using HTML5. The app featured prospective draft pick bios, relevant Twitter feeds, and on draft day, a live mode that updated to show picks in real time.
Kargo International, a mobile ad agency in New York, was looking to develop a smartphone app for their client, ConsumerReports.com. They hired Jarvus to handle development, based on Kargo’s designs and specifications. We delivered iOS and Android apps that are now being offered to Consumer Reports’ subscriber base.
SLA, a tech-heavy magnet school in Philadelphia, is the pilot for Jarvus’ educational software implementation. Jarvus offers enterprise support, management, and development of the school’s student information system (grade books, disciplinary records, course enrollment, attendance) and classroom enrichment software (parent–teacher–student portals, blogs, and forums).
For the release of The Roots album How I Got Over and their subsequent John Legend collaboration Wake Up! Jarvus built TheRoots.com to promote the albums with track listings, listenable previews, and links to retailers and social media outlets.
In addition to building a brochure site for the 2010 TEDxPhilly conference, Jarvus paired with web.illish.us to offer a live stream of the event. The event-day site offered a branded stream player as well as a live chat room and a smart speaker schedule that updated throughout the show with bios and photos of the featured speakers.
Philly’s music and culture magazine Two.One.Five contracted Jarvus to completely rethink their online publication. The bespoke content management system we delivered was built around the magazine’s editorial workflow and customized for their team’s specific usage. Rather than having them adapt to the constraints of a prebuilt third-party solution, we created a platform that suits their needs and will grow with their operation.
