Repair depot resource planning system
Our client, a provider of multi-vendor, component level repairs for a wide range of point-of-sale (POS) touch screen and visual display products needed to better meet customer demand. The company needed a tracking system that would allow it to easily and efficiently manage the complete return merchandise authorization and repair process, the repair parts inventory, and track time spent on repairs. The client considered off-the-shelf software, but found it either too expensive or that it required excessive customization to adapt to their existing business processes.
APP Design’s solution was to develop a custom repair depot and return merchandise authorization system.
The system manages and tracks returns and repairs through the entire process, from inbound receipt of shipments, diagnostics, repair, quality assurance, packing and shipping. The systems gives the client the ability to gain real-time visibility of all repair chain activities and up-to-the-minute repair status, whether a unit is in repair on a technician’s bench, waiting for parts, able to be refurbished, assigned to scrap, in final quality control, pending shipment, or in transit.
The system also manages the replacement parts inventory and tracks a technician’s time and parts used in the repair of a unit. It provides a technician online access to unit specifications and in-house customer based business rules.
An executive dashboard displays real-time key performance indicators and metrics such as incoming shipments, unit repair turn-around time, low inventory and technician efficiency to manage the business and meet customer Service Level Agreements.
The system has allowed the company to dramatically scale their business operations from a local to nation-wide level.
Multi-Media Website with e-Learning Capability
Our client had a unique blend of requirements to achieve its desired goals. Specifically, they wanted a web-based system to replace their CD-ROM and spreadsheet based athlete assessment and training system. They needed the ability to use specific hardware such as game controllers for both on and off-line assessments. Typical web-based systems would not allow the use of controllers or allow for off-line capabilities.
After a comprehensive set of design and architectural reviews, APP Design decided on a Java Web Start architecture which caches assessment data for later transmission to the client’s servers. This allows athletes to train off-line using common game controller hardware while still preserving automatic update capability.
APP Design worked with the client’s web designers, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the new system with numerous explanatory videos. The new system features new exercises, progress charts with universal rankings, and real-time feedback.
The new system helped our client garner larger customers and more productively manage the program data. Our client can now more easily and effectively view activities from all clients, review athlete involvement,
answer support questions and monitor the system.
