Custom architectural woodwork for large offices and enterprises (the speciality of our client) is labor and capital intensive with long supply chains. Extremely accurate cost and time estimates directly drive profitability for the client. Therefore, Supra’s Solutions Architecture team had several rounds of discussions with the client’s team to fully understand their current needs, workflows, and future pipeline. The outcome of this thorough process was a fully featured ERP system developed using modern web development techniques using PHP, MYSQL, AJAX, Javascript, JQuery, HTML5, CSS3. The frontend UI was designed and developed using Bootstrap. To maintain the needed performance, security and privacy, the application was hosted on a powerful dedicated linux hosting server. Quickbook’s APIs were integrated with the system to enable client to quickly and accurately calculate salaries, performance bonuses, overtime. This seamless integration of HR management and ERP greatly simplified the client’s workflow. The application built by Supra is highly scalable and modular - allowing the client flexibility to implement upgrades and modifications as business needs evolve.
