Boost Web Tools


As the team managing grew and more resources were put into online marketing I ran into an interesting problem where I was being constantly asked to verify and micromanage inventory and pricing data.

This was due to the fact that our checkout process and inventory were managed by an 3rd party vendor and the only way to get the data they needed was from a series of XML feeds that we used to keep our environments in sync.

While not a lot of work it was a constant source of daily interruptions so I decided to use some down time to turn all those feeds into a simple user friendly UI that was easy for non technical people to use. The project took me about a day and I put it on an internal site for everyone to use.

To my surprise this page turned out to be massively popular and ended up getting passed around the company. Turns out there was a lot more people who used that data than my immediate team and by creating this tool I had saved them and me a lot of time.
