Silver Touch has developed a SaaS Based Web & PDA Application for one of its California, USA based client with cost effective and improved service levels at remote Stock Room.
Client Base: California, USA
Industry Vertical: Service
Business Model: Staff Augmentation
California based Software-as-A-Service (SaaS) provider for inventory management solutions since 1994. Client’s end customers were looking for a remote inventory management at the last step of supply chain, the point of user (POU). Client provides organizations with real-time visibility into remote storeroom inventories and then automates replenishment. Whether the inventory is consigned or customer owned, client manages inventory at the point-of-use to increase sales and service levels, optimize inventory and eliminate stock outs. While items at the POU may be inexpensive or commodity products, the cost of a production line shutting down from a stock out or an inoperable machine is prohibitive. Client’s service productively and cost effectively optimizes inventory while maximizing service levels at the remote stockroom, store, or service van.
Client’s primary requirement was a Web Based Application on a Windows Server and a Windows Mobile Application with scanning and high performance features to capture transactions at the Point-of-Use. With this new Web and PDA based application, the client had also planned many new features and functionalities which were not available or not feasible in their current client-server application. Main concern was to have centralized control for administrator across all enterprises, companies, and stockrooms. Client wanted the visibility of inventories across multiple Enterprises and Companies. Managing off line storage on PDA device and sync the same with database when connectivity is resumed was even more challenging. Sensor based automated stock maintenance was yet another concern.
Silver Touch Business Solution
Considering client’s requirement Silver Touch proposed and developed Stock Room Management inventory system in ASP.NET (Web Application) and Windows 6/6.5 (PDA (POU) Application) with Agile Methodology. Web Application was developed with MVC 4 with specific views and controls and moreover the Web Application has been developed on SaaS approach to provide client’s end customers independent inventory management. We have developed unique PDA application with Barcode scanning. PDA application can work in offline mode and sync data with web application when the connectivity is resumed. 3rd Party Control (jQuery Data Tables) and 3rd Party equipment (Sensors) were implemented and integrated with this application for fast and accurate data management.Read Full Case Study
