Our main delivery during this Arctic SharePoint Challenge has been, though a bit defragmented, revolving around the Lynx Ink case. Our version of the Lynx-case sports a web shop, an intranet site and several services and features used by both customers and employees.
The Web Shop sells different products that the customers buy for their lynxes. It also provides services such as ridding customers of their lynx when they have grown tired of them. The intranet site contains statistics for the sales people working at Lynx Ink and tracking services for the customers.

The site is custom tailored from master page, to page layout and cover the customers design needs not covered by SharePoint 2013. The custom design also elevates SharePoint covering accessibility and smooth design using HTML5 and CSS3. Topped with the native coloring feature of the Design Manager the design follows best practice for SharePoint 2013.
Lynx execution feature
As a service Lynx also assists its customers to put down their lynx when they for some reason is unable to maintain their lynx. The customer fills in a form that is sent via SharePoint to the CRM-system used by the sales department. From there on the process is handled by sales and legal to accept or deny the request.
The LynxShop lynx tracking page
The lynx tracking page is made for lynx owners that have a lynx with a tracking colar. The LynxShop is the only place in the world where a tracking colar for lynxesesss is available by the way.
When you enter the page we show a simple Web Part that lists out all the lynxesesss in the system (with a tracking colar). By clicking on the Show link on the far right side, the page reloads and more info appears, three more Web Parts to be precise.
The first one shows extended information about the selected lynx (picture, name and description).
Then we have the most interesting one, a google map which shows the current location of the lynx, where the tracking colar started broadcasting, and the route in between these two points.
Right next to this we have a simple Web Part that shows the current weather forecast for the current location of the lynx.
The LynxShop customer heat map page
A simple page that shows a google heatmap based on the locations of all our customers. This is important for the sales –and marketing people of our organization. Then can then see where they could concentrate their sales and marketing to gain more customers.
The LynxShop amusement page
This page shows two things.
- A countdown bar which indicates how long to when the next lynx will be executed. This is based on data from our CRM system.
- Quote of the day. We believe it’s important to keep our employees and customers happy and smiling so….
The LynxShop Receipt Generator
When a purchase is done in the LynxShop, a service is being kicked off in our backend which will generate a receipt document which will be shipped off to the customer by e-mail. This document will be a merger of multiple documents and other information.
The LynxShop Execution Receipt Generator
When a customer has applied for a execution permit on their lynx (or applied for execution by a hit-man), this application will be processed by our execution agents in CRM. When they approve/deny the application, a document will be generated and sent to both the lynx owner and the hit-man (if it’s a hit-man case).
