Until then, management was centralized in control sheets that helped define and estimate the monthly provision of inputs and financial resources.
After having analyzed the case and having determined the need to develop a product, we set out to design and prototype software capable of generating and controlling price agreements, along with the receipt of merchandise and its association with the agreements. In addition to providing the possibility of generating monthly provisions, invoices, JDE software receipts, final control of executed agreements, quantity of products and prices.
The implementation of the new software had a highly positive impact, taking into account that we verified the reduction in manual work on spreadsheets and the rapid execution of agreements and controls before completing the provisions. We also observed a 50% decrease in the time taken to close monthly provisions, which made it possible to detect and/or avoid deviations within each project in advance.
