  • Project by ITWARE- Development of automated Hours Accounting solution for onsite Engineers

Business Challenges

Wade Adams has been our customer for more than 15 years and have been using Infor’s ERP solution to manage their spare parts, inventory, maintenance and projects business excluding estimation. For remote projects given the volume of data and number of project engineers it was impossible for them to capture the hours for each project by employee and to be keyed in to ERP every day and to get updated job cost sheet every week based on hours consumed

Our Solution

An easy to use front end application where project data was transferred from ERP and an option provided to site supervisors to capture time sheets using bar codes and job cards which would then be populated directly to the web based application and transferred to Hours Accounting module by week for each project and validated with the total weekly hours for each project by group before posting to operations

Business Benefits

The system reduced manual errors for data entry as well reduced the whole time for weekly job costs sheet for labor by 2 working days and more accurate analysis cost overrun for each category based on a simple dah board for project managers.

Technology used

  • Baan/LN Tools scripts/schemas
  • XML integration for data
  • ASP DOT NET front end with Dashboards

Customer Feedback

We have been using Infor ERP (Various versions) for the last 10 years for our Operations and though there have been many changes in the company structure at a Global level, local support and services from Infor and ITW team especially Ram who has remained with us as a business partner supporting us all these years has really helped us to stabilize and optimize the solution with a low TCO without any major issues or need for frequent upgrades till date.
