Abstract

This project worked with Endicia to bring an external United States Postal Service system into Endicia’s environment. The system is used to calculate data needed to print shipping labels for packages. We built a full-stack server-to- database application that interfaces with Endicia’s services. We received requirements to prioritize performance and to handle hundreds of requests per second while never incurring downtime. Through this project, we made this service’s response times 30x faster. The program was then handed off for deployment.
