challenge

challenge

To make 30,000 signs easily accessible to the general public via the Dutch Sign Language Centre.

progress

Efficient management of a large volume of data in a single application landscape using modern techniques.

impact

Awareness, accessibility and understanding of Dutch Sign Language by the general public.

challenge

The Dutch Sign Language Centre faced huge challenges. The central database of all signs and the related applications were very outdated and badly in need of replacement. They lacked the ability to keep up with the changing needs of the Centre and growing demand from users for easy online access to all signs.

progress

progress

We first produced a visual representation of the desired situation in order to understand how to get everything up to date again. We then devised a road map so the full redevelopment could be done in stages.

We then developed a completely updated data structure. We used that data structure as a basis to develop a future-proof application landscape. It consists, among other things, of a new website, webshop, management environment for the Centre and underlying applications (including internal APIs, layers and links to accounting packages). Coupled with the new log-in methods we implemented, Dutch Sign Language is now easily accessible to users in a user-friendly way and easy for the Centre to manage.

management

single sign on

Single Sign-On and account management layer for easier use, management and expansion of log-in methods.

impact

Because the applications and thus Dutch Sign Language are now available to more consumers and organisations, it facilitates better awareness. It also gave the Centre a better understanding of how to edit signs, the structure of organisations, and the decline in subscribers. This has put the organisation in a better position.

In addition to enormous strides in terms of user-friendliness for the general public, the Centre now also has new commercial opportunities.
