Streamlining Glowstone Lighting's Operations: Celebrating Our First Completed Contract
Introduction: At BisWare, we specialize in creating custom business software, tailored to meet your specific needs. Recently, we had the pleasure of completing our first contract with Glowstone Lighting, a prominent supplier of decorative exterior lighting for residential and commercial buildings. Glowstone Lighting faced a common challenge in their industry – gathering accurate information from contractors and transforming it into invoices and pick lists. Before BisWare, a trusted software contractor, stepped in, this process was riddled with inconsistencies and inefficiencies. In this blog post, we're excited to share the success story of how our custom web program revolutionized Glowstone Lighting's operations.
The Glowstone Lighting Challenge: Glowstone Lighting's mission is to illuminate the world with their stunning exterior lighting solutions. However, they were facing a logistical challenge when it came to managing orders from contractors. Contractors were submitting orders with inconsistent and incomplete information, making it cumbersome for Glowstone to process these orders efficiently. The company was manually inputting data into spreadsheets, wasting precious time and resources. Something had to change, and that's where BisWare, the custom business software experts, entered the scene.
BisWare's Expertise: With over 15 years of experience in Clarion development and a decade of expertise using NetTalk to create web servers and connected applications, BisWare was well-equipped to tackle Glowstone Lighting's challenge. Our commitment to "user-first programming" meant we prioritized understanding the user's needs and expectations before diving into coding.
A User-Friendly Approach: Our approach to software development is simple yet effective: prioritize the user experience over complex code. We firmly believe that software should align seamlessly with user expectations and interactions. This philosophy led us to design an application that streamlined the contractor order submission process, resulting in a more user-friendly interface and fewer quirks often associated with software development shortcuts.
The BisWare Solution: We created a custom business software solution for Glowstone Lighting that revolutionized their order processing. Here's how it worked:
Contractor Order Submission: Contractors could now easily submit their orders through a user-friendly interface, providing complete and consistent information.
Automated Invoice Generation: Our program automatically generated invoices for contractors, reducing the manual workload for Glowstone's administrative staff.
Efficient Pick List Creation: Simultaneously, the program generated pick lists for Glowstone, enabling them to fulfill orders with speed and accuracy.
The Impact: The results were transformational for Glowstone Lighting. The efficiency gains were substantial, with faster order processing, reduced errors, and happier contractors. Glowstone's administrative team was no longer burdened with data entry, allowing them to focus on more strategic tasks. The bottom line? Glowstone Lighting could serve their customers better and faster.
Conclusion: Our journey with Glowstone Lighting showcases the power of custom business software, efficient software solutions, and the ability to bridge the gap between complex code and user-friendly experiences. We at BisWare, your trusted software contractor, are thrilled to have made a tangible impact on Glowstone Lighting's operations, and we look forward to more successful collaborations in the future.
