J-Value Mathematical and Computational Support
RossTech have contributed to developing the software toolkit for performing J-Value analysis of safety spend to mitigate risk, and continue to be the preferred supplier for maintaining the software. J-Value is a cross-industry approach, the risks considered can range from transport to nuclear to health. As part of this work-package, Ian Waddington who leads our risk analysis work has co-authored the paper: Waddington, I., Boyle, W. J.

Nicholas Howard – Website
Nicholas Howard Ltd approached us to create a company website, showcasing their approach to recruitment which is based on experience and hiring with as much care and attention to detail as their own clients would. In addition the site needed to carry up-to-date listings of their jobs and include a search feature. We selected WordPress as the Content Management system, allowing the site to be easily updated.
Tonsho – Web Application
Tonsho is our in-house web application for sending large email attachments. Tonsho is a full blown web application, built in Java for Apache Tomcat. In addition to building the front-end web site and web application for sending files, this project involved integrating with several external APIs: Amazon S3 for file storage, Google Chekout and PayPal for payment processing, and ReCaptcha for protection against spam. This application makes deep use of email integration, for which Apache James is deployed with custom plugin components called Mailets. To top it off we created a custom Java Applet to handle bulk uploads, to enable Tonsho to seemlessly handle dropped network connections during uploading.
Rotary Bristol Aztec – Social Network Website
Rotary Bristol Aztec approached us to develop a site where they could update information about events, share photos and also message each other for organizational purposes. We felt that the social network creation site Ning would provide the most cost effective way to fulfil this brief. We created and configured a social network on Ning, opting to remove the adverts and pay for the premium service. We then created styling for the site to match the general Rotary style. In addition to giving details of the chapter’s own events and news, the home page also takes a news feed direct from Rotary UK.
