SolTech custom software for EastWest Manufacturing
East West Manufacturing – Case Study<br />EastWest, a contract manufacturing firm with facilities in China and Vietnam had, over the years built and perfected a spreadsheet based prototype to model their vision of allowing smaller companies the benefit of buying product manufactured overseas and shipping via entire containers to reduce the overall product cost. <br />Shipping is a major portion of the cost and shipping partial containers is very expensive. <br />The application built by SolTech, allowed a group of buyers to order products online and fill up containers.<br />
Container Wizard<br />With the browser based tool, they actually can see the container and its capacity. Once a container is filled, it ships. <br />The system automatically takes into account all the dynamically changing variables that affect the supply chain process, and reduces risk to such an extent that offshore manufacture becomes possible for companies that could not previously consider this option.<br />
Consultation<br /><ul><li> EastWest met with SolTech and analyzed each screen of the excel model and analyzed each step of the process, comparing the excel process to the potential benefits that an automated process could bring. SolTech enhanced the process by adding parameter driven business rules to the product.
SolTech built a web based application that for all intents enabled a direct ship model that removed the middleman from the process.
This reduced costs, and enhanced profitability for the manufacturer and the client. The visual “Container Wizard” tool manages the process of efficiently loading and consolidating shipping containers.</li></li></ul><li>Core Capabilities<br />Core Capabilities<br />Supply Chain, Workflow, Business Intelligence, Web application, MS Office Integration, Legacy system integration<br />Technology Used<br />.NET<br />“The Container Wizard application built by SolTech allows our customers to literally pack a container using the visual tools provided. In this day of rising ship charges, reduced shipping capacity and increased competition, it’s critical that that cost is extracted from every step of the process. This SolTech application enabled container consolidation at a greater level than any of our competitors”<br />
Container Wizard<br />By leveraging SolTechs deep understanding of their requirements, coupled with the long standing relationship between the two companies, EastWest was able to lead in its market with a cost effective investment in custom software services from SolTech<br />
