Glimat is a leading heavy machinery parts distributor based in Gliwce. Created in 1994 as a result of rapid growth is now working with over three thousand customers in Poland and abroad supplying them with over 50 thousand different items available in their storage. They are also the only authorized representative of USCO SpA group and Black Cat Blades Ltd. distributor in Poland.


We have managed to complete the whole project in 6 months. The development team involved one graphic designer, one front and two back-end developers as well as one project manager. We have created the design from scratch, made an MVP, developed frontend and backend and finally performed quality assurance testing.

Challenge

As one of the leading and fastest-growing heavy machinery parts suppliers in Poland, Glimat struggles with dozens of orders, replacement requests, and malfunction repairs on a daily basis.


They needed a web B2B solution letting them improve on the process of serving partners as well as regular customers by giving them the ability to manage and control the purchased products in their machines. Also, they wanted to improve on the support repair process to make it easier for both parties to monitor the wear down of a particular part and order a replacement if needed.

Key goals

Decrease the workload of the sales team
Predict what parts the customer may need in the near future
Make sales to a particular customer more regular
Make it available to report issues online
Keep better track of each customer order history

Solution

We started by performing an analysis of our customers’ problems, prepared suggested solutions, and outlined the whole project. Before the development actually started, we provided initial wireframes and an interactive mock-up of the application. A customer module was build, allowing partners to add machines to their fleet and manage the spare parts required for them. It also keeps track of the estimated lifespan of each new part providing the customer with a convenient summary of the most important data and reminding them before a malfunction can occur.


We integrated the application with the warehouse ERP data so that a particular part can be quickly checked for availability. For additional functionality, we have added a way to report any issues and request a replacement or repair services through a custom form.
