I made this project for Refaccionaria del Hogar. They managed the entire company like they did 20 years ago, but their growth over all these years made it almost impossible to maintain that management style. Also, a new law was on its way that year making the use of electronic invoices mandatory.
They also have another problem, they have a lot of products that are hard to tag in any way, and, even if they can, it has to be done manually because most of the products don’t come with a bar code or any kind of code. This makes very difficult to use any existing product because they assume that all of the products are tagged and you just have hundreds of them, so their UI is not practical to add the amounts of products daily that they needed.
So I made a prototype that focused on the most important things they needed to manage their store: their inventory, providers and sales. All the interfaces were designed to handle all their massive inventory (at least in variety). Unfortunately, with only two months for development, there wasn’t enough time for the implementation and to do the inventory of all branches, so we had to implement another solution that allowed us do an electronic invoice without having a registered inventory. This was not the ideal solution at all, but it was necessary for the store to continue operating.
I’m currently working on a new version for this system, implementing all that was learned in all this years, from the clients to the management process.
