Recently, while at TRX, I designed, developed, tested, launched and mainained the TRAVELTRAX Matrix, an online sales and training tool. Originally the idea had been presented as a request for a static website with each area of information in its own page. During the planning stages, I pushed for a dynamic development approach that did not require loading additional pages. Instead, the information was displayed dynamically in one page. The Matrix enabled users to launch fully functional reports and FLEX dashboards, a useful function in sales demonstrations, and for training new personnel.

Not only did I design the interface, and how the information flowed to the user, but I also managed the project, created the content (both visual assets and copy), developed, tested the tool in a variety of browsers, launched and maintained it.
