Trifork at MDevCon

Trifork attended the Mobile Developers Conference on March 7th at the Pathe Tuchinsky in Amsterdam.

Customer success stories

CBR logo CBR (Centraal Bureau Rijvaardigheidbewijzen)

Trifork and Cito have been involved to improve the existing online test system. The CBR is the organization appointed by the department of infrastructure that assess driving skills and  medical fitness of drivers. It now allows to take an exam individually and at your preferred moment.  It includes features such as a calculator, reference tool and a time-based functionality (complete the exam in a certain time).

The new system is based on QTI (Question Test Interoperability) technology, a world-wide Open Standard. The client lockdown allows secure digital assessments by making it impossible to start up other applications or browse on the internet while taking a test and therefore prevent from fraud.
The whole system is completely touch based (including a touch(on)screen keyboard) and displayed on a high resolution touchscreen.
CBR and Trifork are now in the testing phase of the new system, so far the project owner seems enthusiastic about it.

For the Ascert foundation, which governs certifications in the Dutch asbestos industry, we developed a completely new version of their SMART application. This web application is used primarily by organizations that draw up inventories of asbestos sources found at project sites. After entering a lot of details about these sources the system performs a risk classification and produces an official report which includes work instructions for the removal party.

The problems with the old system that needed to be solved by this version were support for a broader range of browsers (old system was IE only) and better performance and scalability. An important new feature was the possibility for the domain experts from TNO to perform their own functional administration to update the reference data and rules that make up the classification model. In addition to this, users had to be able to authenticate using eHerkenning and pay for report tokens using iDEAL Professional without the use of a third-party payment broker. Read further
