Brief Overview

This project was an overhaul of an old already in use system, to redesign and bring it up to date, as well as apply an API for a supporting mobile application. The system was one for universities part of a major cooperative across Japan to easily perform administrative tasks, and manage and track dormatory accomodation they offer as well as private student accomodations being let. The system also needed to have an API for a mobile application that would inform students and their parents about the processing of monthly rent payments.
