Green Mountain Technologies designs state of the art composting facilites

They have done so for more than twenty-five years. GMT has more than 30 municipal and commercial compost facilities ranging from 3,000 to 200,000 tons per year that have been efficiently composting curbside collected yard debris, food waste, biosolids and agricultural wastes.

Cypress Mill Co. has worked for years with GMT to provide custom software for embedded hardware, remote monitoring applications, and calculators for compost recipes. We continue to work with GMT by upgrading and updating their software based on their needs.

We at Cypress Mill are thankful to Green Mountain Technologies and we look forward to supporting their efforts for many years to come. To learn more about GMT and their work, be sure to visit their website.

PROJECT
Modular Aeration Control System (WebMACS)

 

CHALLENGE

Designed and developed improvements to integrated hardware and software compost control system.

 

SOLUTION

Cypress Mill Co. designed a completely new version of the control software and user interface based on feedback from previous versions.

 

Building on the strengths of the React javascript framework, the new user interface incorporated responsive design to allow ease of use for desktop and mobile devices.

 

Automated test coverage was included for both the Lua control code and the React application so that developers could add features and make changes without worrying about breaking existing functionality.

 

Finally, by architecting clean boundaries between configuration concerns and application features, the new software was able to deliver a customized package for each compost facility which performs reliably and requires minimal effort for each new project.

 

SUCCESS

Since the initial completion of the new WebMACS version, Green Mountain Technologies has delivered customized systems to multiple compost facilities and implemented numerous additional features that were not previously available in the product. Customizations can now be delivered more quickly and with fewer technical issues than before. The collaboration between Cypress Mill Co and Green Mountain Technologies has resulted in a stronger product with better support which allows them to serve and satisfy more customers.

PROJECT
nSide Staff Augmentation

CHALLENGE

nSide had an idea for a novel mobile app solution. Rather than expand their software development staff, they decided to outsource the work to an experienced and flexible team who could work on the product on an as-needed basis.

SOLUTION

Flexibility is the keyword for this solution. nSide wanted to move forward with some new products but their software development staff were already focused on developing other solutions. nSide chose Cypress Mill because they could get exactly what it needed: a team who is available for the long-term, on an as-needed basis. 

Cypress Mill team members worked directly with nSide’s team to learn their goals and develop their new idea. As the project progressed, our experience allowed us to offer suggestions for best practices and recognize possible missing elements. 

With each scope of work during the project, Cypress worked directly with nSide’s team to review potential solutions and decide on a course of action.

SUCCESS

nSide has achieved their new product goal, and continues to set more goals. Cypress Mill was able to provide project management, software development, and careful planning to assist nSide in getting the full value from their budget. We held weekly review meetings with nSide to review the software as it was built, making sure the Cypress team was writing code and making decisions in line with the nSide goals.

Throughout the project, nSide had direct oversight of and influence on the direction and results of the project. Cypress Mill was able to assist them with their vision and see it to fruition. Cypress Mill continues to work with nSide to help them meet their goals.
