The client is an innovator in integrating comprehensive ERP software solutions to enhance business operations efficiency. They focus on developing a mobile app that optimises management tasks using advanced ERP functionalities mirroring their partners JD Edwards. They want to make a phone app that simplifies and makes better the handling of Work Orders, Purchases, Shipments, Inventory and Order tasks.
The goal was to create an app that not only simplifies management tasks but also incorporates extensive JD Edwards ERP, offering choices in databases and deployment options (on-premise, cloud-based). The app aimed to provide a seamless experience while handling complex functions like inventory control, order processing, and shipment tracking, leveraging a mobile platform for enhanced business execution.
Dynamic API Response Management
Faced with variable API responses, ensuring robust and error-free data processing was crucial, especially considering the complexity of integrating diverse application modules and end-user reporting features found in JD Edwards ERP systems.
We developed a versatile API management system to address these challenges effectively. This system was designed to adapt to varying parameters and formats, ensuring flexibility. Key features included a sophisticated error handling mechanism that could intelligently respond to various errors and inconsistencies in API responses, maintaining operational stability and data integrity.
UI Consistency Across Platforms
Another challenge was creating a mobile application with a user interface that mirrored the grid-formatted data layout typical of desktop applications. The task involved reconciling the inherent differences between mobile and desktop interfaces, such as screen size and interaction models, while maintaining a consistent user experience. The aim was to emulate deep industry functionality and personalization capabilities typical of high-end ERP software.
The team of AllianceTek carefully designed a UI that combined the familiarity of desktop applications with the practicalities of mobile usage. The development team implemented a responsive design that adapted the grid layout for mobile screens, ensuring a consistent look and feel across various platforms, inspired by the standards-based technology found in JD Edwards ERP systems. Additionally, the app's interactions were tailored to feel intuitive to both mobile and desktop users, striking a balance between familiarity and functionality.
