Spectrum IT designs, develops and deploys end-to-end IT solutions supporting specific business needs in accordance with client requirements.
Information systems are becoming a pillar of modern society, enhancing many traditional forms of human activity. In order to enable entrepreneurs to tap into their potential we provide services in the scope of design, development and deployment of dedicated IT solutions. We specialize in the delivery of targeted, custom platforms, designed and realized in strict accordance with our clients' individual requirements. We also take part - as a consortium member - in numerous European research projects, delivering prototypes and feasibility studies for complex innovative systems in such areas as science, media, banking and crisis management. Our team consists of skilled programmers and designers with years of experience in crafting complex IT solutions.
Selected projects from our portfolio (2009-2017):
- Lead Structure Search Portal (LSSP): a tool designed to facilitate the search for the so-called lead compounds, with interesting pharmacological characteristics. This process is one of key phases of modern drug discovery. The system enables analyses in the context of two distinct search strategies: structure-based experiments which target a particular protein molecule, and ligand-based experiments where an imported ligand library is screened for interesting compounds. LSSP was developed for Earlham Institute (former The Genome Analysis Centre - TGAC) from the United Kingdom.
- Locus: an accountancy web system developed for Centrum Rozliczeniowego Spectrum which supports remote management of homeowner associations. The system is capable of calculating and filing advances, registering payments, creating and settling meter reading lists and annual economic plans, monitoring payment status, dispatching penalty notices and managing invoices (with an integrated document scan repository). It also provides a secure channel of communication between association members, managers and accountants. Locus is outfitted with independent user interfaces for accountants, association managers, building caretakers and homeowners. Security is maintained thanks to advanced data encryption mechanisms and built-in certificates.
- Brassica Information Portal (BIP): an advanced system implemented under a contract with Earlham Institute (former The Genome Analysis Centre - TGAC) in order to facilitate sharing of genotype and phenotype research among plant breeders. The target user group comprises scientists involved in breeding new varieties of plants belonging to the Brassica genus. The underlying goal focuses on the extensive nutritional potential of such plants and capitalizes on the popularity of associated research projects.
- Web Drug Ranking System: a system to support diagnostics and treatment of HIV-positive patients, developed in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam. The objective was to create a Web-based service enabling medical practitioners to specify the HIV virus genome mutations detected in a given patient's bloodstream and compare drug susceptibility factors for such mutated viruses. Based on public medical HIV data repositories, the system is capable of recommending optimal treatment strategies.
- Technology Transfer Office Platform: A web-based platform developed for the Technology Transfer Office, itself part of the Kraków LifeScience Cluster. The platform developed within the project enables the Office to manage tech offerings which are at the core of its business activity. The platform comprises separate interfaces for administrators, TTO officers, collaborators (who contribute to selected offerings) and potential clients.
- Virtual Bookshelf: a system for publishing and selling e-publications, fully integrated with the Internet bookstore of the UNIVERSITAS Scientific Papers Authors and Publishers Society. In the scope of the project, the Publisher's legacy content distribution system was extended with a secure e-book repository along with an automatic watermarking module and a subsystem which allows readers to purchase and download e-publications directly from the UNIVERSITAS Web portal. Moreover, extensions for electronic payment options and e-book publishing management were developed.
We are always on the lookout for collaboration opportunities in the scope of developing and deploying innovative IT systems. If you wish to find out more about our offer, please consult the Collaboration section.
