Key Services: Outsourced product development, Sharepoint, Mobile application
The captive office of one of the leading auto components tools manufacturer in Germany. The subsidiary had exposure to all leading automobile manufacturer with a countrywide spread of sales and service personnel.
The challenge was to monitor the sales/service force and seamlessly integrate them into a system that relieves them of the entire reimbursement process in the system.
The organisation was evaluating using Sharepoint as its enterprise-wide tool. We proposed to built to leverage its benefits for their workflow capabilities and quick to market approach. The field force is on the road most of the times, also required to have a mobile application that effortlessly integrates into SharePoint.
An iOS-based mobile app that seamlessly syncs the services schedules from Sharepoint was created. The schedules enabled the users to view only “Todays” schedules and click on it to start the trips. The trips automatically synced up with Sharepoint with an Uber-like application enabling the salesperson to focus on the trip and calculate the rest of it by itself – including applying organization policies on reimbursement, handling complicated trips across days/cities and other relevant workflows to approve them.
