Product Supply Chain Tracking Service

WEB APP

b

Background

The customer needed to develop an internal corporate application for product supply chain monitoring. We were requested to create a service for tracking product supply chains. It works by creating projects (jobs) within the system, in which the entire production pathway is recorded: from application to delivery to the end customer.

S

Solution

IntexSoft specialists synchronized the application with the corporate service for holding tenders. Thanks to this, our client can easily integrate projects with the tender system and automatically create and launch tenders.

One of the essential technical tasks was the synchronization of the service with the SAP system. IntexSoft specialists created the possibility to process incoming invoices in SAP ERP automatically.

Initially, it was necessary to adjust the parameters that affect the total amount of value-added tax manually in each project. We have created a feature for VAT calculation: a user imports the Excel file into the application – and the system automatically calculates the tax amount for each project.

App working cycle

In the application, the order processing cycle occurs as follows:

one

When receiving an order for the delivery of any product, an employee creates a project (job) in the app, where they specify all the data: product name, quantity, and delivery address.

one

The employee integrates the project (job) with the system to create the tenders. To do this, a user needs to generate an XML-file based on the order in semi-automatic mode and load it into the tender system. After launching the tender, all suppliers of this product type receive letters describing the request. If the project includes several types of products, a user can also create several tenders.

one

A contract is concluded with the companies that win the tender, then they proceed to fulfill the order. An XML file is created in the tender system based on the project and uploaded to the product supply chain tracking app. The project information about suppliers, cost, and delivery time is transferred automatically.

one

When the products are ready, the supplier company delivers them to the logistics company's warehouse. The employee notes this in the project and arranges delivery to the office of the end-customer.

one

The project is billed in automatic mode and is considered closed after the end-customer makes the settlement.
