Portfolio Project - Arkitektkopia

Arkitektkopia is a family of distributed Web-based applications that provides online ordering of drawings and color prints for the building and construction industry in Sweden. An around-the-clock level of availability, reliability and scalability are the main system requirements.

The software system consists of two primary applications:

  • Customer application
  • Administration application

Customer application allows end users to:

  • Send print orders of various types (drawings, color prints, business cards, expo materials, etc.) to a specified print shop
  • Customize user information and user profile

Activate/deactivate Arkitektkopia has the following add-on services:

  • Archive orders
  • Template orders
  • Store, share files
  • Drawing Viewer, etc.

Administration application allows:

  • Arkitektkopia administrative personnel to manage print shops and customers in the system
  • Print shop personnel to handle orders sent to the system by customers

The system provides multi-language support (in Swedish and English) for both the Customer and Administration applications and allows Arkitektkopia administrative personnel to perform localization “on the fly”.
