Industry Project continues over lockdown with growing tech company Lentune

Wednesday April 8, 2020

In uncertain and unprecedented times, there is always a silver lining for certain industries and tech is one of them. During the Level-4 lockdown period, the team at Christchurch-based tech company Lentune Software Solutions, have been busy supporting customers to enable them to work from home. Not surprising, their business has increased over the last few weeks. 

"Businesses are moving fast to optimise cloud-based technology to automate the accounts payable processes, and Lentune's technology eliminates the need to send physical paper invoices." says Di Wang, Senior Developer at Lentune.

SIGNAL student Manpreet is currently on-site creating a ‘Responsive Web App’ prototype as part of her 200-hour SHIFT Industry Project.

"Manpreet is working with us to complete a proof of concept project by building a web app to replace our current Lentune Mobile app. This will allow us to maintain the product more easily in the future. By the end of her project, she will demonstrate a prototype to the Lentune team.  Manpreet's prototype will also make it easier for users to access the software on any of their devices. We look forward to seeing her proof of concept come to life in the coming weeks. "

Industry Projects are an integral component of the SHIFT programme and give students the opportunity to gain valuable connections and world-class work experience. It is a chance to practice new skills, collaborate and network with industry professionals and can sometimes offer a pathway to employment with the host organisation.

If you are looking to up-skill into a tech career, or you may be an organisation looking for a student to help with your next project, please get in touch with us. Our SHIFT students are talented, mature and professional and are dedicated to pursuing a rewarding career in technology, and adding value to your business.  

The 2020 SHIFT studio projects are also about to commence in Dunedin, so if you have an idea for a six-week off-site group project, please get in touch with Kylie at dunedin@signal.ac.nz asap.
