A company that specializes in selling and servicing oil and gas well equipment worldwide, needed to create an updated website to showcase their equipment and services. This website would need to display correctly on mobile devices as well as desktop computers, be easily maintainable, and be searchable and secure. In addition, the site needed to have a consistent and appealing look and feel.
Logikos created a multi-page application that is easily maintainable through the content management system (CMS). The site uses responsive design to control exactly how the site will look on different sizes of screens and devices, and it implements custom-built security features. Custom templates for each specific type of page were created with a clean, crisp look and feel to match the design chosen by the customer, and to give the website an intuitive format. After completion, the website met the customer’s expectations with a modern look and feel, mobile compatibility, and easy maintainability.
The landscape of technical skills changes daily. New technologies and techniques arise while older ones wane. Organizations race to find the right people for the work they are doing today.
Traditional skill and resume databases use full-text searches that can only match keywords; they cannot infer skill level through work experience or realize that a listed skill or experience implies skill in another, unlisted area.
Organizations need a search tool to effectively query and manage the technical resumes of their employees.
Logikos designed and developed software that can not only search by keyword but also finds matches through relationships between skills, training events and certifications. Results are ranked based on work experience and inferred skill. Information can be viewed in the browser or exported to PDF in resume format.
The software allows users and administrators to add new skills, training, certifications and relationships between them to incorporate cutting edge technologies as they emerge.
This software was designed and built using a flexible Service-Oriented Architecture. It can be integrated with other Enterprise Resource Planning tools as desired.
Provide an easy-to-use dashboard interface to monitor and configure a network of military radios. Device hardware is found using the WS-Discovery and conversed with using a publish-subscribe mechanism.
Working with our customer, Logikos helped to create software that finds radios, aggregates data from them and provides a centralized, cached information bus exposed for use by applications. The information bus is exposed behind firewalls using high-performance Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) endpoints. The bus is available across the firewall to web clients via Web API interfaces. A modern website was built with pages that access the Web API interfaces using Ajax.

A medical device company created an Android application to help patients better manage their diabetes care by making it easier to provide reliable health information to their caregivers and HCPs.
The customer needed the product to be tested both rigorously and quickly, yet the approach also needed to provide test deliverables appropriate and acceptable to the standards of an FDA-regulated environment. They needed help defending the value of the product to important stakeholders, so they needed experts to make them aware of important problems and risks quickly and efficiently. They didn’t have time or funding for a ponderous test approach or sorting through mounds of paperwork and minutiae.
Logikos guided the test effort under a Context-Driven Test Approach, in which we exercised the product in the ways it would be used and could be used in the real world. This approach takes into account that complex software projects often evolve in unpredictable ways over the course of development. In addition, the approach regards software as a solution: thus, if the Android application did not resolve the problem or situation it is meant to address, then it cannot be considered a success.
Within our context-driven approach we utilized Rapid Software Testing skills, which helped our testers quickly learn what was important by:
The focus was on finding out how the product worked—and how it didn’t work—rather than simply checking to see whether test cases passed or failed. Rather than confirming existing knowledge about the product, the tester is focused on revealing new information, with minimal fuss and busywork.
Logikos was able to identify and report important bugs within the very first days of testing, which allowed for engineering releases to be made early in the development process. Results from each subsequent test iteration led to sounder engineering releases, which allowed testing to become even more robust and led to an reduced development cycle as well as a shortened overall test cycle. The anomalies and observations reported provided the customer stakeholders the confidence they needed in making product launch decisions. The product was submitted to the FDA for review and approval was granted without any re-work or requests for additional supporting verification documentation.
An automotive company was prototyping a new state-of-the-art infotainment system. The customer needed the User Interface (UI) to be created and demonstrable in a short period of time. Requirements and documentation were limited, and what did exist was very preliminary. The project promised to be fast paced, requiring frequent changes as the UI look and feel and functionality would be honed by customer stakeholder feedback. Additionally the system needed to be robust enough to support demonstrations, and constructed with sound design principles to facilitate extensibility for use in future products.
The customer has praised the Logikos team several times regarding Logikos’ ability to understand the existing framework and quickly develop and make modifications to the UI as various changes are requested by stakeholders.
The restoration industry specializes in cleanup and restoration after fires, floods, and other property damage. Equipment and vehicles must be deployed quickly, and are often moved between job sites within a large geographical area. Expensive equipment is lost, left behind, or underutilized.
Access to up-to-the-minute asset location information would reduce losses and increase efficiency, however traditional asset tracking systems using bar codes or passive RFID tags are time-consuming, temperamental, and prone to human error.
Logikos designed and developed an asset tracking system consisting of custom tag, tracker, and remote receiver hardware devices; embedded firmware; cloud-based business logic and web applications; and native Android and iOS apps.
We also designed and developed end-of-line test fixtures and software to support tag and tracker manufacturing.
Restoration companies attach vehicle trackers to in-dash wiring through a simple aftermarket install. After plugging in building trackers and attaching tags to equipment, the system is operational. Active RFID equipment tracking tags communicate in the 2.4GHz frequency band to building and vehicle trackers, and trackers automatically communicate equipment and vehicle location to the cloud via a 3G cellular data connection.
Companies access their tracking data in a secure fashion via popular web browsers, smart phones, and tablets. The system maintains graphical and tabular vehicle and equipment history for use by companies to monitor their business efficiency and to support billing their customers. Powerful software analytics maximize their ROI by summarizing equipment and vehicle use, while highlighting potential missed billing opportunities.
The product is currently deployed across the US and is expanding to other countries.
This system was built to be extensible as additional features are needed, and is ready to be adapted to any industry with similar fleet and asset tracking needs.

A company needed a new website to showcase their expertise and flexibility in providing their services. It also needed to be easy to navigate and display well on mobile devices. The finished site had to be responsive and attractive, with a modern look and feel.
Logikos created a website with a consistent theme, eye-catching animations and effects to capture the user’s attention, and custom-built user navigation. The website also employs security features to prevent spamming attacks and a content management system (CMS) to make the site easily updateable and maintainable. The site was created in reusable, configurable sections to make it easier to redesign and update. The completed website was a responsive, custom-built site that was secure and easily maintainable.
A leading company in the development of diabetes management systems required a new enterprise information management system to replace their existing product. The new product would continue to interface with existing patient devices, but the company required a completely new system design.
The company needed the product to easily accommodate new features and functionality with minimal or no change to the system’s core functionality. The plan was for the new product to be relevant and viable for at least 10 years.
The new product would be designed, developed, and tested as a Class II medical device.
Since the overall goal was to accommodate future growth, Logikos developed the system using a software design pattern that emphasized extensibility.
Using this design pattern, new types of blood glucose meter and insulin pump devices could be added to the core functionality with changes to configuration only. This design approach also allowed for software components to be easily replaceable as well. For example, one product in the product line required the use of a different database solution. Another extension to the system required interfacing with a cloud based web service to save information remotely.
So far, seven product versions have been deployed in numerous languages worldwide. Logikos has been the lead software development and test vendor for every aspect of the product lifecycle; system design, software design, software development, formal test, product release, and product update activities.
