The leadership team at LogoSportswear wanted to improve order processing times and was seeking to identify new data management and tracking solutions. Their vision was to accelerate the customer buying process by developing and enhancing their order location tracking system with the goal of building value for both the organization and the customer.
Logoworks is the customized enterprise resource planning (ERP) system used by LogoSportswear for their core business processes. Leadership was interested in leveraging their ERP to manage the barcoding within the tracking system, and to create a mobile app for different handheld devices in support of accelerating order completion, especially during their peak holiday season.
