A high performance digital home for Colorado's favorite games.

Client: Colorado Lottery

Industry: Gaming & Conservation

Fusionbox is the software development agency of record for the Colorado Lottery. As such, we created all of their digital properties, including their website, mobile applications, and several pieces of software including their vendor interface software.

The Colorado Lottery, a division of the Department of Revenue for the State of Colorado, creates and sells Lottery games of chance that are held to the highest standards of integrity, entertainment, and efficiency to maximize proceeds for the people of Colorado. Over the past 34 years, they have returned $2.9 billion to Colorado for parks, recreation, open space, wildlife projects, and public school construction.

We also worked to overcome the following technical challenges in developing the complex backend of the site:

  • Encryption and other security controls to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of PII and drawing-related data
  • Data modeling and database design for large dataset
  • ETL data migration from legacy format
  • Fault-tolerance for external API integrations
  • Security consulting for internal processes and technology
  • Concurrency control techniques to ensure the consistency of data being manipulated by many parties at once
  • Auto-scaling fault-tolerant deployment on AWS
  • Screen-reader compatibility, internationalization and 508 compliance

We also provide hosting for all these properties and we’re proud to say that the Colorado Lottery site was one of the only State Lottery sites that stayed up and running during the $1.6 billion Powerball Jackpot in 2016.

A custom application to create, update, and share digital playbooks.

Client: Paterson Center

Industry: Business/Life Consulting

The organization and presentation of multiple coaching sessions' worth of charts, graphs, tables, and plans can now be easily digitized and shared 400% faster than before.

The Paterson Center guides individuals and teams through detailed LifePlans and StratOps to achieve personal and professional growth. Facilitators spend time speaking with clients and taking detailed notes, which are transcribed into a variety of charts using a local word processor.

Fusionbox developed a custom software that would allow Transcribers to populate each LifePlan or StratOp with charts in any order, and populate them in a more time-efficient manner. We worked closely with Paterson to review the purpose of each chart and redesign them. We also introduced the functionality for digital versions of the plans to be shared as both view-only and editable modes, allowing users to view, share, edit, and print their own plans from their computers, tablets, or phones.

Our mobile web app streamlines manufacturing QA and troubleshooting.

Client: Gallery Carts

Industry: Manufacturing

Gallery Carts manufactures and maintains custom food and beverage carts for a wide variety of vendors. They have a detailed QA process to ensure products are delivered on time and as expected by their customers, but the meticulous details were recorded on paper, which made it less readily accessible to everyone involved in the process.

We developed a custom web application that allows everyone in the QA process to instantly access the status of a given cart with detailed checklists of inspections and other QA steps that need to be completed before delivery. Each cart has its own QR code, which can be scanned to immediately view information about that cart’s history and components of the cart can be reviewed for a more efficient maintenance process. Carts can also be sorted in the application to view the carts present at a specific location.

A software tool that allows users to customize bikes based on their measurements.

Client: Retül (Now Specialized)

Industry: Cycling

Retül is a Boulder-based cycling outfitter that provides technology, tools and training to help cyclists improve performance and comfort on their bikes.

Fusionbox developed a piece of custom software for Retül to help users customize their bikes for their body with different parts. When Retül wanted to add even more features to this software, they came back to Fusionbox for our expertise in software programming.

After users have been sized with Retül's measurement equipment, this custom web application reads those measurements and makes suggestions of various bike frames. Each aspect of the bike is entirely customizable by the user, from parts to angles. All changes are represented in real time with an animation, so users can see exactly what their custom bike will look like.

Retül chose Fusionbox for the redesign and development of their website, as well as both iterations of this custom web application. All development and design was done in-house by the Fusionbox team.

We helped rethink their user flow to enable users to find information quickly, contact the best person to assist them on the first try, and complete forms more effectively. Fusionbox also ensured that their new responsive website supported their shifting brand and accommodated Colorado Marketplace standards.
