Cloud Printing without Google

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Cloud Printing without Google

LVT Cloud Printing IconMojoe.net and Liquid Video Technologies just completed LVTPrint which is our own software version of Cloud printing.  We developed our own cloud print software because we had been using Google Cloud print for our client NTHS. NTHS which stands for National Technical Honor Society is a association which has thousands of members. When new schools sign up or current schools adds new members they get anywhere from 10 to 500 new members.  This then requires them to print a roster, a member certificate for each new member and then a membership card. Each one of these are printed from different trays and different printers at there office in North Carolina.

So they where looking for a way to only have to click one button from their web site and have it print all of the internet orders with the Roster being printed and having the correct orientation, also to the correct tray,  the member certificate being printed to the correct paper type and tray, and then the member card being printed on special paper along with being printed to the correct tray.

We started by solving this issue by using Google Print which worked like a charm but in the last few months it has just stopped working with no rhyme or reason and as usual even though the product may be great you can never get anyone on the phone at Google for support.  Well, NTHS has come to rely on the one-click-printing feature that we developed in association with Google Cloud Print.

We had no choice we had to develop our own software so NTHS would not have to rely on Google Cloud Print so that this feature would continue to work. So we set down and wrote a windows based software app that allows their web application to communicate to their local server and as the orders come in our piece of software looks for new orders. Gets the orders, que’s them up and then prints the orders in the correct format and to the correct printer.

We are currently working on developing this for other companies as a stand alone product that can be used with any web application or web site that needs to print multiple/single documents from the web and still want the ability to do that from any internet connection.

If you would like more information about LVTPrint or would like a free consultation please do not hesitate to email us at info@mojoe.net or you can call us toll-free at 866-466-6563.

Whats your Function Junction | Web Design Greenville, SC

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

So is it okay to have a web site that may look great but does not work?

Well, my answer as a designer and developer would actually surprise most people. YES, it is okay to have a great design with no function, but for your client it is probably a big fat NO. Your web site should not only look amazing and be original; it should also function correctly and perform call to action to get your clients their desired results. There are great deal of developers out in the web community that are not designers and vice-a-versa.

We recently, had a client decide to use another web development company and the design of the site is nice. Unfortunately for our client the web development company was not experienced with shopping carts, so even though they have a nice looking site. The clients customers can no longer order online and the site basically no longer works. So what should you do if you experience this issue.

Ask questions, Ask questions, Ask questions, and educate yourself for the benefit of your company and its web site. Now, I am sure you are wondering what questions to ask? Well, here is a small list of questions that should help inform you if the company that you are about to work with is capable of performing not only the design but also the functions to your web site.

Questions to Ask:

Question: How long have you been developing web site?
Answer: If the answer with 1 year or we are just starting out, this can be a potential red flag if you are looking for a web site to do specific actions that may be complicated.

Question: Who is your developer/programmer?
Answer: We outsource our development to India, or  we know a guy. RUN, the reason is very simple. The person you are talking to most likely has no knowledge of the programming for a website and if this person is your point of contact then transferring your idea to them and then to someone else and so on. Well, you get the idea, your function will get lost in translation both literally and figuratively.

Question: What programming language do you use?
Answer: The answer should be immediate and they should be able to show you examples. If not then this is another red flag.

Question: Do you comment all of your code?
Answer: If they say no, or unfamiliar with what comment your code means then you need to find the nearest exit and leave the building. Commenting code is a practice that all developers should do when coding a web site. It is basically cliff notes to each section of code on the web site. The reason this is important is because the comments will assist another web developer if the site has to be moved or another web developer has to take over the project.

Question: We would like a self contained web site that we manage ourselves (CMS), can you develop something like that?
Answer: Once again the answer should be yes. But they should start out by evaluating your project and seeing if you would be better served with having an out of the box solution; such as, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, or DNN. The reason being that if they develop something that only they understand then you are stuck with them and can never move your site. Having a foundation in one of frameworks mentioned before will make your site easier to move and most of these frameworks have a large selection of plugins to quickly add function to your web site. Now, there are some cases where custom programming is warranted and is very necessary, but remember if the programmer comments there code and also the web company agrees the coding belongs to you then there is no problem. Custom programming can be very beneficial in the development of your web site. This answer actually leads us into our next question

Question: Do you write code from scratch?
Answer: The answer should be yes. If it is no or they are unsure then you have an issue. Having a web company that can actually write code from scratch especially for a complicated and very involved web site is extremely important and can be critical to the operation of your web site. Your site need to have the ability to grow and expand over time…as I have said before, ” A web site is a ever evolving and growing means of communication.”

Remember, interview your potential web development company, spend time with them, ask questions, make a plan, and be sure to ask for examples.

I will be writing some more in-depth blog post that will deal with Planning, Development, Design and Maintenance so please be sure to check back often and feel free to contact me at 864-859-9848 or you can email me at dwerne@mojoe.net

Thank you,

Client Education | Web Design Greenville SC

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Clients our great to work with some will push your talents to the limits or will challenge you to solve a problem.

I personally enjoy working with every client no matter what the project, design, or programming issue. The one thing I think every client should be is no matter the situation on hand is EDUCATED. Education is key so that a client can make an informed decision about the products or services that they require for their web site or web development application.

A great many of clients get different points of view from many resources some of worked on sites before and have good and complete understanding of the development process. Some clients have little or know understanding when it comes to web development or web design. So in general clients can vary in their understanding and knowledge on web sites and web applications.

We spend a great deal of time educating our clients on the services that we offer whether they end up using us or not. The reason we do this is because if a client will actually sit down and takes the time to understand the aspects on Search Engine Registration, Search Engine Optimization, Responsive Design, CSS, HTML, as well as Hosting, SSL, Analytics, and Marketing. Then we beleive we have done our  job to let the client know which company is the best decision for their site or project

We want an informed client who can make an informative decision…..If you would like additional inforamtion or would like to sit down and discuss your site please do not hesitate to call us at 864-859-9848 or you can contact us.
