The Project

emedia developed a web-based sale order and inventory status management system that streamlines the processes of creating and tracking sale orders for each product line. By developing and integrating an inventory status tracking system into the sale order database, it lets create orders based on live inventory data. The system also facilitates logistical management with a pre-populated shipping form by generating it using data from sale orders. Its custom report suite lets sales, production and accounting managers in multiple countries, access and track live data as well.


IST was able to move away from a by-hand process that involved both paper and excel spreadsheets to a new process that allows all key personnel to have visibility over inventory.
