Quad Plus needed a new and improved entry system that was Web based and accessible to its employees who were mobile and needed the ability to enter time over an Internet connection via tablets and smartphones. They wanted a time entry application that would imitate the functionality of their previous system, but also have the capability to integrate directly with the new Dynamics AX system.
Once DMC and Quad Plus met to define the project scope for creating a Web-based Time Entry Application Project, DMC performed the following activities to create the solution:
DMC architected the technical design of the application, including data integration points, access methods, and the user interface
Design of application architecture, database schema, and technical integration points with the Microsoft Dynamics AX Accounting System
Created architectural components for integrating with Dynamics and other data sources
Developed the user interface and implemented business rules for the time entry application
The deployment of the web-based time entry application project had a dual benefit in making it easy for employees to enter their time into the accounting system, as well as helping employees get acclimated with using SharePoint. By making it easy to enter time, DMC helped reduce the lag time between time reporting and invoicing customers. The users at Quad Plus were also offered the convenience of entering time while working remotely from both smart phones and tablet devices like iPads.
