A customer in the beauty industry had separate warehousing and accounting applications. The process of notifying the accounts department that an order had been dispatched was being done manually via email so that they could then locate and convert each sales order to a sales invoice in their financial system. Our Software Development team wrote a Windows service that automatically retrieved deliveries from their warehouse system, connected to the financial application and then located and converted the orders to invoices. This greatly reduced the amount of work the customer had to do by hours each day and removed any possibility of user error, streamlining business processes.
A manufacturer and distributor of motor accessories purchased a bagging and labelling machine to speed up the despatch line in the warehouse. Our Software Development team devised a solution that loaded the picking document into the bagging machine and then generated consignments with the chosen courier. As the bagging machine scanned a picking note, it would print and apply the relevant couriers label for the consignment and the order could then be updated as despatched. As a result, the customer was now able to process five times as many despatches per day, increasing efficiency and ensuring accuracy.
