Challenge

Arkitex contacted us as they wanted to optimize their working procedure. The assemblers where filling pdfs by hand and spent a lot of time handling printet paper, that would end up being entered into the computer in the office at the end of the day.

Solution

We have delivered a system for Arkitex, that allows the assemblers to log in and create new offers or edit existing as well as creating new customers. The system lets them choose different pdfs for order information, which can be filled out on the go. Because of the integration to Ordrestyring.dk the assembler is able to fill out all information, merge all pdfs into one file which is then added as documentations in Ordrestyring.dk, just by pressing a button.

The solution has been built as a web application that is optimised for both tablets, phones and PCs. It communicates with an API on the server which is connected to Ordrestyring.dk. The server handles all the heavy workloads instead of the user's device.

This digitalization saves Arkitex a lot of time and they avoid a lot of mistakes as they have to handle less manual inputs.
