Beezwax News July 2012: Web, Mobile, Data, Action!

That's Show Business.

Super smart systems, with some Hollywood glitz.

Some clients want it all … robust data management tools, a customer-facing web application, and mobile apps for busy users on the go.

Reel Security, whose business is security and professional services for TV and movie sets in Hollywood and beyond, asked Beezwax to play the leading role in producing an integrated system for three platforms — FileMaker, Web and Mobile.

The system enables Reel's clients to request services at any time, from anywhere. Their web application handles budgeting, location scouting and even suggests where to park your car! For Reel, automating workflow has allowed them to double revenues without adding administrative overhead.

We now have the most advanced online software system for Location Managers in the entertainment industry. This would not have been possible without Beezwax.

–Mario Ramirez, CEO, Reel Security

Reel Security has expanded their services to multiple cities and increased client retention. In fact, having best-in-industry software has helped them to attract some of the hottest clientele in the film and television industry. How's that for a Hollywood ending?

Here's one way we drive quality in our web development.

Software evolves. What your organization needs this year may not be what you needed two years ago. And it's hard to predict all of the functionality you'll need in the future.

The practice of automated testing can help prepare for the future and reduce costs over the long term. By adding automated tests into software code, developers can anticipate how a change in one component will affect other components.
