The Background - Issues & Challenges
Prima Group’s existing software didn’t have proper integration between Point of Sale (POS), Inventory and Accounting modules which resulted in improper and inaccurate management of sales and inventory. Also, multiple stores couldn’t be centrally controlled from their head office. As there were no integration between Sales, Inventory and Accounting modules, PRIMA Group used to do a manual stock adjustment process to balance the inventory. This caused in a high-volume wastage of money, effort, time and workforce. So, they started to look for an alternative solution that could address all their challenges. After doing a thorough research on products, services, reputation, reviews and ratings, Prima Group decided to choose Alpha EBM to work towards the solutions they needed.
Working with The Client
We started with the Proof of Concept for client by providing them infrastructure to convince Prima Group with the right performance. The business case was convinced by PRIMA group and they decided to move its entire deployment to AlphaEBM. Bothe teams collaborated to create a custom deployment platform Infrastructure.
AlphaEBM specialists worked out a customized solution for the PRIMA group, looking at their main points of concerns and the requirement. The entire solution was worked from front office point of sale counter to back office AlphaPRO Inventory and Accounting modules to support the entire operations. PRIMA group’s requirement in terms of sales was customized to make faster sales without wasting time of the customer standing in queue in front of the counter for billing. Also entire solution was built to ensure reduction in the infrastructure cost, still backed by AlphaEBM premium support which includes managed security on software, infrastructure monitoring, and proactive support.
