Engineering business efficiency

The company that makes components for the aircraft industry wanted to share its product line data with its customers to reduce the number of calls asking about job status.

They had been in contact with a web agency and the MRP software developer, both could not do it. The web agency was not as technical as they thought and the software developer just did not have the skills to do it.

In 5 days I developed a portal that allows their customers to log in and see their jobs.

The key challenge was diving into the database system within the MRP. That said as an experienced software engineer this was not new territory and after briefly chatting with the MRP developers they quickly realised that I had similar experience to them and they could see the advantage to having their data exposed in such a way that it was secure, but could be linked to by other applications.

The system is now live and working.
