Sales Representative Locator Application
Way back in 2004, before the term “AJAX” was coined, I built this Flash-based sales representative locator app that was used internally at Macromedia. Clicking on a state to pop up sales rep contact data was a quantum leap from the manual searches through 70-page PowerPoint decks that had previously been required to find contact details for a particular territory. Sales people changed territories frequently, so this app, backed by the sales contact database allowed users to find a contact with one click. This single page app queried the database asynchronously and loaded the results into the app long before either “single page application” or “AJAX” entered the lexicon.
