Re-engineering device applications and delivery processes
Used in all stores across the Waitrose branch network, the application suite comprises .NET clients and a Java server application accessing a DB2 database. They facilitate inventory and store room management in addition to shop floor activities such as stock, shelf and waste management, price reductions and product transfers.
Updates to the server-side code delivered similar improvements.
Supporting a range of tasks from inventory management to merchandising they deliver automation in places where technology is key but portability is vital.
By re-engineering the suite of legacy applications and enhancing the delivery process, BJSS helped Waitrose to dramatically improve its quality, maintainability and time-to-market for new functionality.
