Most Recent Projects worked :

Project 1 : Inventory and Logistics cost tracking system

Project Background:

Client has an application to forecast / Budget the inventory cost and logistics cost in their ERP systems ( Date 3, Prism and PRMS) on annual basis, monthly basis and also in adhoc basis. In parallel the client has tracking application to measure the actual cost of inventory and logistics. This helps to compare the estimated and actual cost of inventory and logistics.

Issue:

After few years down the line the tracking system was not included with those new modules which processes the inventory and logistics cost. Due to which the actual value calculated by the system was not accurate.

Proposed Solution:

Analyze the modules not feeding the inventory and logistics cost to the tracking system, identify the transactions with all the deductions and other charges and derive the final actual cost. Introduced a consolidated file to track the inventor and logistics cost from old and new modules and report on annual basis, monthly basis, period to period basis.

Benefits:

Obtained accurate inventory and logistics cost and facilitated to track the cost easily if any new modules introduced in future.

Project 2 : Introduce new bar code and digital signature to avoid paper work in ordering and invoices

Project Background:

The client has upgraded their bar code system as suggested by the US federal specifications. This bar code will be printed on their products. Also introduced digital signature to avoid paper work in the orders made by their customer and invoices. This approaches were installed only for their specific branches.

Proposed Solution:

Analyze existing system and new specifications captured to feed the values to the new bar code system. Analyze and modify those reports, modules involves printing hard copy of the orders made and invoices and modified accordingly to process in online and capture digital signature.

Benefits :

Lead time gets reduced, paper cost get reduced, order processing time gets faster
