Mission-critical business software into the 21st century

MCS Control Systems manufacturing MCC and PLC solutions, including SCADA, MES and PLC software

We worked with the team to build a better, more forward looking core application to manage sales and quotations. The new platform needed to mirror all existing critical functionality in addition to streamlining tasks and include some much needed new features. While previously running on Microsoft Access, the updated platform is now accessible from any web browser. All the company's functions are now centralised in a single, intuitive platform that vastly improves visibility and reporting abilities.

The challenge

The main challenge was to consolidate a complex, time-intensive application into a sleek, automated operation with a stunning front-end interface. We produced high-fidelity interactive prototypes allowing the design team to test various design ideas and workflows.

Given the vast sums of data required to calculate a quotation, the other challenge involved data migration and refinement. The dev team worked with MCS Control Systems to establish a data structure that would be easy to maintain and update in addition to allowing instant price loading.
