Networking Software Systems in Manufacturing
The IT director for a large manufacturing company believed streamlining manufacturing order processing with software integration solution would be a great fit for their thriving business. He was concerned with customer and company frustration with order processing times. Exporting and importing data was difficult as the company was reliant on servers and systems that did not easily share data. The IT director was seeking a cost-effective, easily implemented business software integration solution.
Our Breakthrough Solution
Despite the company’s usage of the community-based MuleSoft kernel, our consultants crafted an API to reveal order details from one platform (OnBase), enabling the seamless execution of a business process on another (Planet Press). Mulesoft simplified other internal company processes. By doing this, we allowed for data sharing across platforms (such as warehousing and accounting and human resources and CRM). Our business software integration strategy also included expanding their website search functionality through exposing an API resource. Through JIRA, our team refined the company’s alerting, monitoring, and support ticket services.
In addition, our team designed and developed integrations that fit within existing Enterprise Resource Plans (ERP). Our consultants built a custom Mulesoft component that allowed modern technologies and business software integration processes to work with legacy AS/400 systems.
By implementing our strategy to streamline manufacturing order processing, we supported this company’s goal and reduced order processing times. Our work also improved their order fulfillment and processing costs and allowed them to integrate modern processes into legacy systems.
