DecaTech client project receives award

•August 5, 2005 • Leave a Comment

In the 7 years Carrie and I have run DecaTech Solutions, I’ve been fortunate to work with some great clients and interesting projects. The variety of the businesses that our clients own/manage is one of the things I really enjoy about web development.

Sense of Security is a client that I’ve worked with for over a year now. They provide financial assistance to the women and families that are impacted by breast cancer. Sense of Security came to us for assistance in helping to add additional features to their existing website and provide hosting service. I have worked with¬†Angela Ricker, their Executive Director to help them add the ability to take online donations for their many charity events, and most recently helped implement Angela’s brainchild of an online financial assistance web application. She dubbed it FAST (Financial Assistance Screening Tool) and working together, we created a very dynamic, easy to administer web application that Angela and Sense of Security can enhance and modify as needed, without having to work with me for their changes. When the project was completed a few months ago, it was one of my proudest programming achievements in several years because it turned out to be even more flexible than I had initially envisioned, and I knew Angela was pleased with the end result.

This past week, Angela contacted me to say that the Colorado Cancer Coalition had informed her that Sense of Security’s FAST – Financial Assistance Screening Tool Project has been selected as this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Innovative Project award.¬† Nominations in that category were numerous this year, making the field very competitive. The Coalition commended her for her work, and thanked her for her impressive contributions in the fight against cancer in Colorado.

The Colorado Cancer Leadership Awards Ceremony, will be taking place next Thursday, August 11th, at the 5th Annual Colorado Cancer Conference at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.

On behalf of DecaTech, I am very proud to have worked behind the scenes to help Angela and Sense of Security to win this well-deserved award.
