By using a revolutionary structural technology to create longer, lighter, and more reliable wind turbine blades, Modular Wind Energy enables their wind turbine manufacturing customers to offer wind generation at a lower cost. Modular’s first prototypes were installed in 2012.
Because their database was fragmented and used multiple vendors and accounting systems, their purchasing process was complex and difficult to navigate. Modular needed a solution that integrated with their existing systems and databases, while simplifying the purchasing process. It needed to enable purchase approvals based on users’ roles and access rights, as well as provide collaboration tools to unify the organization.
AllianceTek developed an iPad app for us within a short frame of time and went above and beyond to deliver what we wanted. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to develop easy to use, professional quality apps. Thanks for a job well done!
After evaluating Modular’s organizational architecture and purchasing process, AllianceTek designed a solution to improve the user experience, as well as enhance collaboration and security.
Features of the system include:
AllianceTek created an end-to-end solution that involved initial scoping, requirement definitions, development, deployment, maintenance, support, and hosting.
AllianceTek created the solution as an integrated SharePoint application, so that all purchase request data can be housed within SharePoint and accessed from a single location. This allows purchase requests to be routed and approved based on employees’ assigned roles and access rights. It makes account codes available with the purchasing request and integrates the vendor, purchase-order and bill-of-material databases.
AllianceTek completed the development on the Foundation version of the SharePoint Server and deployed it on Modular’s SharePoint server.
Modular Wind Energy now has a SharePoint portal that reduces complexity, manages data, and fully integrates with their existing systems. This allows Modular Wind Energy to improve the user experience while achieving a positive return on investment.
