A Central Authentication Service (based on Laravel) that offered a single sign-on experience for all users across all Pulso’s online applications. An online platform for Counsellors, Employees and Organisations that provides access to numerous Pulso services.
Personal assistance matters!
Pulso Europe is a KU Leuven spin-off that is the driving force for everything related to Employee Assistance. They offer numerous services that empower employee resilience and help to create healthy workplaces. Pulso Europe asked us to create 2 applications for them.
This project challenged us as it offered us the opportunity of building 2 applications / services simultaneously. Careful planning and a thorough analysis of all functionalities was paramount to make sure that the development would be perfectly aligned with both applications and all features.
Design & UX
It stands to reason that security and privacy are one of the key concerns in this project. Not that they are optional in other projects, but this project really deals with personal, confidential information on a daily basis. Making sure that we comply with OWASP regulations and placing the users’ security first, every step of the way, was one of our main concerns.
Development & backend
We used Drupal as content management system for the EAP Online platform and Laravel for the central authentication service providing the single sign-on functionalities. These choices were not made lightly. Drupal was chosen for its webmaster & content editing functionalities as well as the seamless multilingual support, Laravel for its API performance and a very short time-to-market implementation cycle.
