Our customer is the largest Polish exotic wood importer operating the market for over 20 years. They import from places all over the world like Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Russia or Uruguay. While their main products are scantlings, boards and plywood they also supply over 300 manufacturers of modern doors and windows mostly in Central Europe.


The whole project was developed in 5 months, from start to finish. The team consisted of one graphic designer, one front and two back-end developers as well as one project manager. Our scope of work included business analysis, interactive wireframe, UI&UX design and custom forms translated later into interactive charts.

Challenge

On a daily basis Drewnostyl operates with enormous amounts of wood. They need to make sure that each batch is of the highest quality and contains just the right amount of timber. It is a demanding task which requires precision and effectiveness at the same time. During their recent internal audit, the company has identified some major bottlenecks and figured there is a space for improvement.


One of them was an unstructured process of internal quality control of the supply they received which, left the way it was, did not allow for neither any form of sophisticated analysis nor consistent effective supervision. Because of the specifics of the internal workflow and the industry overall, this problem required an unconventional solution. This was a challenge that we willingly took.

Key goals

More convenient way to browse through the tests
Better data visualization
Customizable forms
Forms integrated with company data
Easier and faster employee interaction

Solution

We and the company have jointly agreed that a customly crafted web application could vastly improve the troublesome process by means of dedicated modules. We have begun the process of building the application by creating an interactive wireframe. Thanks to this approach, we were able to better nail down the customer’s requirements and make sure the functionality is optimal for this kind of problem. The next step was to build the backend structure in a way that’s optimal for this specific case.


Its core part revolves around data visualization and quality control forms and was supported by a variety of standard modules and features. On top of that, we have built an intuitive User Interface that every employee is able to operate. To speed up the process of operating the system for new employees, we have embedded user-friendly hints that guide the way through. The application has been released on an external server with a variety of network protections and restrictions to provide additional security.
