Basic Preliminaries required

All their paper work should be converted in to electronic data like their Requisitions to store department (Requests for Materials along with all the details), Technical information sheets for Lab Department (The sheets should consist of all the technical details of the material for testing), Batch Register No. for Production department, All types of Indents goes to different departments, All Purchase order to/from suppliers/customers with details to be managed.

  • They wanted a track of the consumption of their raw materials such as chemicals, herbals and fuel consumed in the production of a finished good.
  • They had a large amount of machinery installed, for which they wanted a system to keep the status of the machineries updated check for faults and ensure it is working fine.

Obstacles Faced

  • A software that would easily help to co-ordinate between different departments.
  • The software should be able to generate reports that are connected to the records and technical details of various departments and should be user-friendly.
  • The users there were not equipped with computers and not well acquainted with  working with the system. It was difficult for them to change their working style from paper work to electronic data.

Solution Provided

  • Antasoft Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Provided a desktop based application which automated their Management without any paper-work. The application contained their various departments (Modules) as per the requirements.
  • We provided a Notice Board facility to communicate urgent and important matters between different departments. The Notice Board would be displayed immediately after the user login into the system by passing through authentication.
