Field Sales App to Process Sales Orders On-site
The client is an online distributor store.
The client required a Field Sales App to enable the sales workforce to enter sales orders from the customer’s location using mobile/tablet devices.
INDUSA developed a Field Sales App for the client for order placement in real-time. There were two main components involved – mobile app and Web component. The mobile app is installed in each sales person’s mobile device. All the data related to orders, customers and products are saved in the application as XML files. The web based component facilitates data transfer between the AX database and the mobile app database.
