Technical Proofs of Concept

PPS engineers are continuously brewing up innovative ideas to demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of leading software and technologies.

We generate proof of concepts for two reasons:

  • Value-added for our clients
  • Internal intellectual curiosity and de-bunking of “This can’t be done…” statements

Our engineers work very closely with our clients to demonstrate the value and efficiency of specific solutions and implementations. Please contact us if there is a specific Proof of Concept that interests you and we can discuss it further.

Highlighted Proofs of Concept include:

  • Mobile Application Development
    PPS has been working to help our clients keep up with the growing mobile trend as smartphones, tablets and portable devices become more of a social norm than ever before.
    • MicroStrategy Mobile Application
      Our engineers demonstrated how business intelligence and reporting efforts should be available and achievable anywhere, any time. The PoC contained a live and fully functional product.
    • Enterprise Timesheet Mobile Application
      This PoC demonstrated how our client’s timesheet system could potentially be available for on-the-go users. The PoC contained a live and fully functional product.
    • Web-to-Mobile Site Translation
      This PoC provided our client with an idea on how an existing website would look on a mobile application. Our engineers were able to demonstrate a fully functional mobile site that represented the full site, including the integration of social media.
    • Cross Enterprise Search tailored for Mobile Users
      This PoC contained a fully functional mobile demonstration showed how the client could quickly search across separate systems and applications across the enterprise
  • eSignature
    PPS provided a PoC to discuss the eSignature solution for one of our clients by demonstrating the value added for implementation. Key Facts includes:
    • The requirement for handwritten original signatures often creates the biggest delay in an otherwise electronic transaction. E-signatures make possible long-distance transactions, in which parties are in different time zones and/or different continents.
    • Digital signature are legally enforceable in each of the 50 US states as outlined ESIGN, the Electronic Signature in Global & National Commerce Act , enacted by President Bill Clinton in June 2000.
    • The average paper document is copied 9-11 times at a cost of approximately $18 and filed at a cost $20, plus the added cost of storage media, space, postage and distribution.
    • According to recent AIIM research, in 56% of organizations more than half of the printed documents are printed just to add a signature, creating paper bottlenecks that cause process delays and introduce higher overhead costs.
  • Splunk
    PPS engineers provided a PoC that highlighted the existing challenges that our client has faced, along with a demonstration of how Splunk addresses each of the issues in question. The PoC also included the implementation and configuration path for Splunk.
