Challenge: An engineering company needed to manage inventory levels, track live production metrics and streamline the shipping process, while maintaining a level of simplicity for non-English speaking workers.
Solution: Three18 created a complete order-to-ship solution workflow database utilizing FileMaker, FileMaker Go, and PHP scripting. Given our Engineering client’s need to track orders from concept to completion, we created a database that accepts client orders and tracks the order process through production of all injection-molded parts. After the parts are made, they are then automatically pulled into a shipping management solution, which prints the appropriate shipping labels after a lookup with a bluetooth barcode reader. Gone are the days of double data entry, pen and pencil job orders, and incorrect shipping labels.
