A radically different way of approaching city design.
Harvard Graduate School of Design - 2012
Flux City was an investigation of three key premises:
Here, we introduce a multi-step system for remediating stormwater runoff through natural infrastructure (wetlands). The additional benefit of natural infrastructure, of course, is that it can be further enjoyed by both people and wildlife.
A fanciful, yet fascinating approach to city-making: automated design derived from a catalog of parts that responds to a series of environmental inputs.
Lastly, the third leg of the stool: the product that researchers (Vetty employees) use to actually conduct the background checks.
This is a basic researcher workflow. Note that it is divided into 3 stages:
Generally, teams of researchers are assigned to different accounts, with each member taking on a specific phase. Due to Vetty's limited resources, individual researchers take on their own accounts and conduct all 3 phases.
The main focus of the researcher dashboard is the "Adjudication Needed" column, which uses a simple "yes" or "no" to indicate when there is a pending task. Hovering over the cell in the column brings up more detailed information.
Because researchers are trained users, the dashboard can adopt more complexity for more power. Below, custom components that allow each column to be independently searchable:
Much like the client portal (for account managers), the candidate details are where most of the tasks are done:
The researcher portal is now undergoing a major redesign to accommodate larger teams. Stay tuned!
Whew, that's it! A complete Consumer Reporting Agency platform from scratch. As of this writing, Vetty has experienced a 10x increase in MRR and is now undergoing a serious M&A bid.
