Like many other companies OldCastle found that the Order Entry Process in M3 could be challenging . The vast back end functionality was overshadowed with less user friendly order entry process. Also with many types of orders to handle, it was often challenging for the end users. And also with requirements close to a point of sale system, it was very hard to satisfy a quick entry process for walk in customers.
With ComActivity as a Platform and by leveraging the API’s from M3, a Simplified order entry application was created for OldCastle.
The Order entry application initially focused on a quick Cash Sale entry with integrations to Address Validation, Credit Card, Signature Capture and Maps Interface. The User interface eliminated the complexity and established a simple and quick Order entry process while preserving the business logic and the Data Integrity in M3.
During this Process at OldCastle, the potential use of this application was extended to create a fully functional Order Entry Interface. Now a modern and easy to use Interface is built and in use. The ComActivity Platform at OldCastle is being used daily by hundreds of happy employees!
