Successes

MVP

MVP is Mass Valuations by Pagaros, and is used to provide unimproved land values to the NSW Dept of Land and Property Information for the purposes of rating and taxing. Values for approximately quarter of NSW are provided using this software.

MVP provides the ability for Valuers to meet their contractual obligations to the NSW government and provide:

  • annual valuations for their contract areas
  • coded and analyses sales
  • completed supps
  • statical analyses of valuations

The software is compatible with all file formats required to exchange information with the LPI, and is able to work with ValMap.

MVP has been in continuous use by Valuers under contract to the LPI since 2003, and at the start of 2015, we recently released the web version: MVP3.

Othello

Pagaros is proud to have designed and built the Australian Othello Federation’s web site, and honoured to host it on one of our servers. We are also in the process of porting Papp (the globally recognised tournament pairing program) into a web application.

SARDS

SARDS is the Sales And Reporting Data System, built for a local real estate valuation company. It manages valuations, sales and timesheets for the organisation. SARDS is a Sales and Reporting Database System that was developed for a local customer. It contains several modules for managing different aspects of the company’s process flow.

The program was written in C++, and uses MFC as the windowing framework. It uses MySQL as the database, and is working with more than 1,000,000 records. It is a multiuser system with an average of 10-15 staff accessing the database at any one time.

  • Valuation Instructions When received, they are entered into SARDS. From here, administrative staff can update the instructions, generate reports, and perform comprehensive searches.Valuers can record delays and any other information on the instructions.
  • Sales can be imported from downloaded sales information, and users can also enter sales information as a detailed sale. Detailed sales can contain not just information about the sale, but also a complete sales analyis. SARDS is able to import a series of photos for the sale.
  • Valuations¬† SARDS really shines when it comes to short-form valuations. When an instruction is logged in, SARDS creates a valuation. When the valuation is for a financier, SARDS is able to take the information entered by users and generate the reports required by banks and other lending institutions. SARDS is able to import a series of photos for the valuation.
  • Timekeeping SARDS has a builtin module that allows valuers and administrative staff to keep track of their time. The user interface is very intuitive, and the user doesn’t have to type times.
  • System Management The System Management module provides an administrative user with the ability to add, remove and update user rights, and update reference lists of all types.

The Folio Network

folio_redThe Folio Network servers and website were built by Pagaros, and went live in October 2003.

The system consisted of four distinct areas of functionality: data collection, data distribution, a charting client and the web site. It was made up of ASX stock market data collectors running on a Windows 2000 server, data distributors running on Linux servers, and a Windows charting client.

  • Data Collection The Folio Network was supplied with ASX stock market information by MarketCast. This information was stored in a MySQL database, with additions to the database happening at up to 2000 records per second over the course of a trading day. The collectors (one for live data and one for delayed data) feed the data to the first level of distributors running on the same machine. These processes were all Windows services, written in C++.
  • Data Distribution The collectors passed data to the first level of distributors, who in turn, pass it on to the main distributors. There could be an arbitrary number of main distributors, each of which subscribed to the first level distributors. In this way, the system can be assured of meeting the data demands of any number of subscribers. These main distributors were the servers to which the Folio client connected. They were Linux daemons, written in C++.
  • Folio Client The Folio Client was a program that people could download for free. The installation package contained a certain amount of data so that the program’s functionality could be evaluated. If the person decided to subscribe, entering a username and password would bring the database up to date. The program was written in C++, using the WTL as the windowing framework, and SQLite as the database.
  • The web site was the way people were generally introduced to the product. We registered it on Google as a sponsored link, so a lot of our traffic came directly from the search engine. We also used Google for searching within the site. The site had two main access points. The public access point contained information about the product, user login and account access; a signup area that includes access to a payment gateway; and online help including FAQs, an online manual, a wiki and a discussion forum. The administration access point was password protected, and restricted to a certain range of IP addresses. From this point, we were able to view the status of the various servers; manage user accounts; generate reports; and process payment batches.

Key2IT

The Key2IT system was more than just a product. It provides secure communication data of all types. It consisted of a range of client and server components, available for Windows, Linux and Solaris.The Key2IT suite of functionality incorporated many modules and programs. There were clients available for Windows, Linux and Solaris; servers were also available for Windows, Linux and Solaris. There were secure modules available for Outlook, and SMTP server extensions for Microsoft Exchange and Postfix.

WPM

WPM was developed in collaboration with another software development house. The program manages the invoicing, receipting and reporting requirements for shopping centres. WPM is a program designed to aid shopping center managers with invoicing, receipts, budgeting and owners’ reporting.

The program is written in C++, and uses MFC as the windowing framework. Database functionality is provided by Microsoft Access.
