Custom Software Design and Application Development
Most of the time our POS solutions are so called, “out-of-the-box” meaning the software is merely configured to the particular situation. But sometimes for a truly complete solution we need to write custom software
At Point-of-Sale Systems.Com we are manufacturers of hardware, plus developers of POS software and dealers for a number of different software packages so we can always provide you the best solution.
Have a unique situation that a ‘work around” is just not going to cut it? Bring it to us. We can give you a good priced solution by drawing from any number of modules we have developed over the years.
Or if necessary we can develop a solution from the ground up to solve your unique business situation.
Steps to custom solutions:
1) Business Process Review
2) Statement of Work, Scope Documentation
3) Configuration, Coding & Testing
4) Beta Installation & Testing
5) User Acceptance Testing
6) Documentation & Training
7) Production Rollout
CASE STUDY: Maui PlayCare
SITUATION: Client is a franchiser of drop off children day care facilities. The existing manual process for acquiring and storing parent and child information, retrieving the information, checking in children and charging by the minute for day care services was time consuming. Client wanted a simple to use system so that franchisees could easily calculate charges to customers and generate profit
reports for franchisee fee calculations.
SOLUTION: Using our existing payment processing module, customer information module and rental modules we built a custom interface, tested and delivered the software and hardware to the first franchisee in only two weeks!
CASE STUDY: Port of Los Angeles
SITUATION: Client is a governmental unit that is undergoing major expansion in what is the largest ocean port in the world. Many constructions projects are on-going and the port is situated near thousands of residential inhabitants. To qualify for federal matching investment funds all construction must meet minimum environmental impact criteria. All construction activities need to have an environmental impact assessment, however it is not cost efficient to study each activity individually.
SOLUTION: Using environmental studies on historical construction activities, such as emissions of a diesel engine backhoe, a database was constructed which indicated for each piece of construction equipment what amount of particulate pollution was emitted. An application was created for all on-site inspectors to use by logging on to an internet based secure server that allowed them to indicate what equipment was being used on each project, for how long and then managers were able to run reports estimating environmental impact.
CASE STUDY: Cutco
SITUATION: Client is a national distributor of cutlery products using a door-to-door salesperson method of distribution. In keeping with the needs of modern homemakers, the company decided to offer its franchisee salespeople the opportunity to open retail stores. The stores must be able to access historical information on customers dating back to the 1930’s for repair and replacement work, as well as, new order purchasing.
SOLUTION: Using our existing point of sale application we were able to quickly build an additional “work order module” to accommodate repair and replacement orders. This module was able to integrate with the company’s existing IBM mainframe computer to access historical customer information. In addition the application can meet all new customer purchase transactions.
