Work / Projects



Outside of office hours I maintain a system I built from scratch called AvocetCRS. The system allows staff of Avocet Trust to log client referrals and keep track of them, from the start to the finish of the referral process.

The system features include:

  • Overview - When first logging in the staff team see a screen showing them client records that have not been updated recently, sorted by the most untouched record at the top.
  • Full audit trail - When any record is changed it will log who made the change and what the previous entry was.
  • Action tracking - Actions can be assigned to individual client records which have their own independent audit trail.
  • Documents and Comments - A record can have any number of files attached to it. Also staff can add comments to the record at any time. Both document uploads and comments are added to the audit trail.
  • One click printing - Using some advanced CSS techniques I was able to make certain areas of the system print nicely.
  • Integrated Support - The system features a contact form that goes straight to my inbox in case anyone needs support.


While experimenting with the latest versions of MVC I ended up developing RanText. It serves no real purpose beyond being an alternative to 'Lorum Ipsum' generators but it is a good showcase of AJAX functionality.

Have a play with RanText!
