To enable Waterway Plastics staff to efficiently plan, manage and track workflows within one single environment.
Waterway Plastics, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of pool and hot tub/spa and Whirlpool Bath equipment for the USA and international markets. The overall business process in the company from design up to end-product delivery to consumers involves participation of many people.
To streamline resource and tasks management across company departments, Waterway Plastics opted for a custom ERP system. Developed by another IT vendor as a web application, the system eventually failed to meet customer’s expectations. The customer’s concern was to speed up the roll-out of the perfected version to end-users as many critical operations already run through ERP.
We started the project with the analysis of the customer’s requirements and everyday activities in the company, which consequently detailed in the functional specification. After the system was deployed on our and customer’s servers, we proceeded with the improvement of the overall functionality and development of new modules, such as: Purchase, Engineering, Shipping and Sales. The modules were developed and tested one by one to ensure their faultless support of company workflows and logical interaction with the entire ERP system. Upon the customer’s request, we also developed a mobile app Inventory Management for the warehouse staff.
By partnering with EffectiveSoft, Wateway Plastics received a much-improved application enabling the company staff to perform their tasks efficiently without downtime and risks.
