Custom Tool Design

Truly unique needs require truly unique solutions. Sometimes “off the shelf” just isn’t going to get the job done no matter how many modifications you make. We offer custom tool design as a solution when your organization’s needs are so unique and specific that the only correct approach is to build something from scratch that meets all the requirements.

Designed Specifically For Your Needs

There’s no need to worry about whether the solution is going to meet your needs and requirements, because it’s built to those exact requirements. No weird workarounds. No features you should just ignore because your organization doesn’t use them but they came with the solution. The solution only exists because you needed it; and because you needed it, we built it.

Custom tools are amazing, but they usually require more resources. Which is why we take the care to do discovery and look at all the viable solutions available to you. Sometimes an organization thinks they need a custom tool when really what they need is an existing tool with a plugin. We guide our clients through their options for solutions and make sure they understand not only the solutions but the implications of choosing those solutions.

Case Study

EZ Form

An IL4-based Google Forms-style open source solution that we developed and deployed allows users to create their own custom forms as well as respond to forms sent to them. Results are aggregated and shown in customizable charts/graphs that may be downloaded as image files. Responses can also be downloaded as Excel files.

Born from a USAF (United States Air Force) and USSF (United States Space Force) need to identify discrimination of race, sex, and rank among the military branches, which required units to track and report the specifics of each of these characteristics of all involved with each disciplinary action dispensed.

Replaced the existing static, time-consuming, human-error-prone tool used for reporting and tracking while addressing the inability to use commercial solutions due to the Impact Level of the information.

Originally built for Space Launch Delta 45, EZ Form, which we deployed within Platform One, has been widely adopted by other groups across the DoD (Department of Defense) for a variety of other use cases.
