quiet and serene atmosphere at the Diocesan Center, dramatically
nestled against the Koolau cliffs, belies the true nature
of the Catholic Schools office situated here.
busy office is the hub of operations for the 56 Catholic Schools
of the most important functions performed here is the coordination
of Human Resource (HR) issues such as the hiring of teachers,
employee certification, and the generation of administrative
reports including those mandated by regulatory agencies.
Kaeo R+D was asked to help build this system, the specification
was for a faster system that would allow concurrent access
yet be similar enough in “look and feel” to the existing single-user
system to minimize user retraining.
we delivered a system that is deployed over the web, yet uses
wizards to guide the user step by step. This is more difficult
than it sounds, as it is not easy to retain data and state
over the internet, for each intermediate step and each user
logged into the system.
Kaeo R+D delivered the system within a few months and within
budget. We even managed to subtly update the look by
anodizing the mandated neutral grey page colors with different
hues corresponding to each of the different functional groups.
