Tender Management Project
A client contacted us with a request for IT support which is capable of managing extensive offerings to their major customers. There were specific requirements as to how the process should look like with the creation of Radars (Potential clients / projects), RFI’s (Request for Information) and RFQ’s (Request for Quotation). The end-result was a web-based quotation management system which helps to document, facilitate the management of, and ensure the quality of extensive quotation works.
We worked with one of the major TV channels in Sweden to create a web-based reservation system for advertisements. The request was to have the display of the advertisements harmonized with the launch of the products of our client’s customer according to specific timetables. A part of the challenge was to integrate the changes with our client’s current system and to optimize the complex planning system over time. The system today supports differentiated viewing of advertisements across different stations.
Achieve a complete and robust transport communications with your mobile devices
Many logistics companies today face the challenge of being able to effectively monitor their transportation mobile devices. Disruptions stemming from the sudden loss of network and the exhaustion of battery in the mobile phones could hinder communication and response from the driver. These problems could, however, be avoided with proactive planning and by building specific functionality in the mobile devices to trigger events according to client requirements.
Envisage the following scenarios:
1. What if a network connection loss in the mobile phone could trigger the automatic sending of an SMS to notify the control tower of the issue?
2. What if the driver can be duly notified of the need to charge the mobile phone when the battery level has decreased to only 5 percent?
3. What if you could trigger automatic reminders to drivers who fail to confirm orders within a specified time?
There are many other possible scenarios which could arise and we aim to help companies take a proactive approach in managing their mobile communications during transportation.
