Saas MVP Development
Get your business idea off the ground
Need a developer to help build and launch your Software as a Service (SaaS) product?
I've worked with a number of early stage startups to help bring their business idea to life. Test the market with a Minimum Viable Product or build out new features on your existing PHP product.
I've completed over 100 successful projects in the last 2 years, from small brochure websites to complex web applications. Here are just a few of my recent ones.
Pinder Transport - Car Carrier Logistics
Pinder Transport is a car carrier trucking company that had a need to replace their aging trucking logistics software. In addition to modernizing their software, they also found the advantages of moving their business software to the cloud so they could easily access it from anywhere.
I custom built a comprehensive application that automates and streamlines their operation by:
- Allowing them to track and manage the logistics of their fleet
- Assign loads and trips to drivers
- Invoice customers
- Automatically generate driver payroll statements
- Automatically calculate IFTA tax rates (a complex international fuel tax regulation)
- Notify management personnel of upcoming licensing renewals
Leaf Racewear is a London company that sells auto racing safety equipment and custom made racing suits. Their website was old and was in need of an update. I built them a new mobile friendly website with their products featured front and centre. To go along with the store-front, a custom coded check-out process suits their unique needs and makes the customer experience smooth and painless.
A back-end powered by Perch CMS along with some custom tracking software simplies the website management and puts more control in the hands of Leaf Racewear with less dependance on a web developer -- how it should be.
What they had to say:
"I ran the new website through the [business development] website assessment tool. It scored a 10/10... that was pretty fun to see." "I really like how the site is looking!!" - Colin Grandy, Leaf Racewear
Professional Pool Services in London, ON previously managed their website on their own using Wordpress, however after being hacked twice, and also realizing they badly needed a design update, they hired me.
I put together a custom designed website built on Perch CMS. Now they have a modern, mobile friendly website that's also highly secure.
The Biography Centre, an established publishing company, commissioned me to build a subscription based web app for a new venture of theirs that seeks to guide writers through composing their own autobiography. Through a sleek interface, users will be guided through writing about their own personal history from their ancestry into their childhood, adulthood and right into their dreams for the future. The app then compiles everything that's been written into a comprehensive "My Bio" page, which can be shared with others or kept as a private momento.
The unique Timeline feature matches historical events to a user's period of their life, and enables them to record their thoughts and reactions.
An easy Progress panel tracks what sections have been completed, skipped, or need further work.
Users can also upload and manage photos through galleries tied to a specific time period.
The app also includes extensive Administrative controls that allows them to manage the integrated blog, users, help resources, historical events, and the prompt questions.
Cloud based invoicing and accounting software for freelancers, consultants, and micro-businesses. This is my own product launch born out of a lack of other good cloud invoicing/accounting software out there designed for the little guy.
Packing some industrial level security, slick reporting, and lightning-fast performance among other features.
Its free to use!
Power Property Services
This is a web application that serves as a great example of how a piece of custom cloud software can unify your workforce, drasticly reduce man-hours on non-revenue administrative tasks, and provide a serious return on investment very quickly.

Now work crews can:

Community Living Port Colborne/Wainfleet
A Perch CMS powered website done for the Port Colborne branch of Community Living.
Like my last Community Living Project, this website features a custom built employee section which provides training content for internal policies, tracks an employee's progress through it, and notifies adminstrators when training sections are completed.
Mindful Drivers - Student Database
A new driving school needed a student database and portal to manage students, schedule class and road lessons, track payments, homework & attendance, and provide students a portal to login and view their activity and invoices. I built a custom web application to do just that!
- Keeps database records of student information
- Tracks student payments, generates invoices, and can email receipts out
- Schedules Classroom lessons and in-car sessions
- Allows instructors to upload registration forms, exams, homework, and attendance sheets to the app for tracking
- Provides students a portal to view their own attendance records, submit their own homework, view invoices and payment information, and see the results of exams and road tests
