Over Two Decades of Successful Projects
Quoin has a track record of innovation and results building mobile web and enterprise applications, improving software development, and guiding our clients.
LIMS & E-Commerce
Quoin supported the reengineering of a Laboratory Information Management System and supporting e-commerce website. We continue to provide assistance on technologies, architecture, and implementation of new system features.
Clinical Data Appliance
To support a cardiovascular test developed by BG Medicine, Quoin implemented a network-based application using Java and a rules framework to retrieve, score specific clinical patient data, and generate a result to predict adverse patient outcomes. The project objective was to build an easily-deployed software and hardware solution that can access patient data, apply rules-based calculations, and provide the resulting index value as a new result for a patient's medical records.
A principal consultant from Quoin conducted an audit of the firm's knowledge management practices and provided detailed recommendations on processes, staffing, and training.
Social Media Campaign
We designed and built a social media website for a political campaign. Our project team worked closely with CHAPA to rapidly deliver a sophisticated and engaging site to support a state-wide ballot referendum. The website featured a series of video testimonials from families that benefited from affordable housing programs.
Digital Learning Platform
Quoin provided engineering leadership and multiple project teams for the MindTap digital learning platform. Our long-term collaboration delivered specialized applications and facilitated the adoption of agile development at Cengage Learning.
Enterprise Development & Support
Our technologists supported a range of web, mobile, and enterprise development projects for this regional telecommunications and home security provider. Over a long-term relationship, Quoin was responsible for critical systems including Customer Support, Customer Self-service, Billing, Retail Point of Sale, Customer Email, and others.
Digital Training Platform
Our project team was responsible for the comprehensive development of an e-learning and digital training delivery platform.

Key features of the platform included support for student administration, assessments, and progress monitoring.
Customer Management System
Quoin led a project team through an intensive year-long effort to support online customer and account management at a major utility. The project was instrumental in the deregulation of power generation and distribution in the region, and it enabled retail and commercial customers to choose providers. The key challenge for the project team was to create an architecture for the heterogenous environment of legacy and new systems and to provide accurate and timely account information to consumers.
Jahia CMS & Website
Quoin designed and built a new corporate website and supporting Jahia Enterprise Content Management System. Our project team was responsible for design, implementation, content migration, and testing of this flagship site. We worked closely with the customer to meet an aggressive development schedule and support an upcoming industry conference.
Hotel Booking E-Commerce
Quoin collaborated with a start-up company to build an online booking service for luxury hotels. Our project team participated in the specification of requirements and user-experience of the website. We were responsible for all phases of development - implementation, testing, integration with back-end booking service, and deployment - and helped Five Star Alliance go from concept to launch in 12 weeks.

Our principal consultant performed a hands-on evaluation of the platform, and provided detailed recommendations to improve robustness, availability, and performance.
PII Redaction Tool
The IRS wanted to analyze important customer comments submitted via their website. This presented a complex problem as the IRS needed to ensure that clients who upload comments are never at risk of divulging Personally Identifying Information, or PII.
