The customer— one of the world's leading steel and mining companies and a prominent international supplier of lead products in the B2B marketplace— aimed at refining their existing iPhone/iPad application which automated the management of clients’ orders.
The customer had a mobile solution which lacked fine performance and proper integration with the corporate database.
The previous vendor failed to produce a sophisticated and fully operating system.
The legacy solution contained significant code inefficiencies which resulted in frequent crashes. Thus, the customer’s business goal was to reduce the expenses related to the maintenance and support by addressing its technical problems.
With this in mind the customer turned to PixelCrayons as a company with the proven track record of successfully completed architecture optimization and code refactoring projects.
The application represents a versatile mobile tool for order processing automation and embraces a set of instruments for order entry, management and monitoring.
The enhanced solution is an iOS application that shifts the placement and subsequent acceptance of orders online, shows due invoices, facilitates order status tracking, provides for an ability to lodge quality claims with the company and more.
Clients place orders by accessing either the company’s catalogue or previous order history, monitor order progress, check due invoices, lodge quality claims with relevant photos attached and track their consideration status.
Managers receive clients’ orders and claims, track and process them and view client information.
Technical support staff receives quality claims and views respective orders, as well as initiates appropriate action in respect to delivery flaws.
