Client Requirement

Our client required a website that would allow users to check the validaty of certificates issued by the client by entering a certificate number. After checking the certificate is valid they should be able to download it in pdf format.

Our Strategy

We used the Codeigniter php framework for the backend and Bootstrap for the user interface and a MySQL database to store the site content.  A key requirement was to make the system quick and easy to use for administrators so a very simple filename based system was devised. Certificates are uploaded in pdf format via a bulk uploader with the certificate number as the filename meaning adding new certificates is extremely quick.

The Result

The portal was completed on time with no issues.
