Who is ThingaMaWebs and why choose us over the rest

About Us

Having been a professional software engineer in the private sector since 1985 our founder and owner Kevin Regan found himself with a strong knowledge base that other web developers didn't have so he started ThingaMaWebs to help people get their messages out to the world on the internet.

Communication the key to any projects success and we value a solid communications chain above all else.

Who Are We?

There are many companies in business who can put a picture on the web for you but, at ThingaMaWebs we provide a complete solution from hosting, to back office design, database design, Search Engine Optimization, content management, custom optimizations, and software engineering.

You take a picture tomorrow and 20 years from now it still holds the memory you felt dearly about when you first took it but if you look at the back of the image there is nothing there. This is what you often get from web design firms that are not trained as software professionals.

Your website is more than an image of a memory but is your vision for a future. Why place that future in the hands of a photographer when you need a web design that does more than look good.

Kronos Inc.™
Guided a 4 person team for development of 6 custom reports for use by the healthcare industry in Kronos’ Workforce scheduler. Work involved the use of Crystal Reports 10, servlets, and SQL stored procedures. This project lead directly to 6 Kronos clients becoming reference accounts to develop other sales opportunities for the scheduler suite. Optimized Kronos HTML tree display component by replacing tables being used for layout with div elements, removal of client cached elements, and better use of Ajax and DOM display mechanisms. The work I did lead to an increase in display speed from 36 seconds to 6 seconds and a 40% reduction in browser cache space when loaded. Work involved JSP, JSTL, Struts, Ajax, CSS, Java servlets, Javascript, and HTML. Designed and developed a UI to generate custom reports through Crystal Reports CRPE interface using Java servlets, applets, swing components, XML, Javascript, JSP’s, MSSQL, and Oracle. When I took over this project it was already behind schedule by 6 months and I was able to deliver the product on time with other suite products for the 4.0 product. Guided a 5 person team and added significant design input on an employee self scheduler application for the Kronos Scheduler suite. This application allowed hospitals and retail clients to increase customer and employee satisfaction by automating a previously manual procedure and allowing managers to quickly see staffing shortfalls and overages then administer corrections before they became a crisis. Work done using JSP, Struts, JSTL, Javascript, HTML, CSS, and Java servlets. Designed backend support for a database archiving system to allow clients to reduce the size of active databases while retaining accurate accounting of previous timecard, scheduling, and budgeting data. I was tasked with delivering this product in one year while mentoring a group of 3 SQL engineers in Java. Due to my design and diligence this product was delivered 4 months early allowing Kronos to avoid a costly litigation for non-performance by a client. Work involved Java Servlets, MSSql, Multithreading, XML, and Oracle. Developed applications to allow clients to configure various features and properties of Kronos’ scheduling product. In developing these applications I worked closely with, provided design input, and coding support to another team of engineers creating a UI framework allowing rapid development of JSP base UI application for the Kronos suite. Work involved Java Servlets, JSP, JSTL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, Javabeans, and XML.
