Custom Desktop Software Example

How custom desktop software can save a lot of time.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth even more.  So rather than reading a lengthy post on how to speed up data entry, today let’s look at a quick example.

Suppose your company receives Purchase Orders via e-mail.  Watch how you can drag and drop those e-mails from Outlook into a data entry form.  Instead of manually copying and pasting each field, you can import the whole PO into your order entry system with the flick of your mouse.

Does this still demand too much user interaction for you? Well, we could take it up a notch.  How about automatically scanning your inbox for e-mails from senders at somecompany.com?  The logic could check whether each e-mail includes a purchase order.  Then it would import every PO in one fell swoop.  Next, it would move the emails to an archive folder (just in case you ever need to check the original e-mail).

What if you don’t deal with purchase orders, but you do receive shipping manifests via e-mail?  No problem:   Same principle—different database. We could even write code to reconcile manifests with matching orders, if that would be helpful to you.

Or maybe you have a different need altogether? That’s the beauty of custom desktop software development. We can tailor the logic to meet your specific business needs.
