Mackays Marketing are a dedicated specialist team that manage the supply and marketing of farming families. This allows the families to do what they do best, growing some of Australia’s best produce while still maintaining control of distribution to customers nationally. Mackay’s approached Erudite to modernise their existing software application with the view that we can easily extend it as the business grows.
- Custom Web App
- App Modernisation
- Differing requirements between stakeholders and departments
- Develop a secure portal that allows multiple departments of Mackays business to perform essential business processes with shared data between modules.
- Develop reporting that provides appropriate data visibility to 3rd parties.
- Ensure systems have flexibility as Mackay’s business develops over time.
Erudite performed extensive research into Mackay’s current business rules and processes to create a comprehensive data model. Part of that process was to conduct focus groups to discuss the business goals where Mackay’s & Erudite determined vital outcomes for the new systems. We decided that Mackay’s requirements would best suit a Spring-based J2EE web application. We were then able to create a central repository for data that different business areas can share.
The modernised web application better represents the workflows and requirements of Mackays with the benefit of being accessed by all parties with a web browser. The inbuilt functionality has cut down on admin time and ensured that all departments have the correct information. The underlying React & Spring technologies have also ensured that the application can be extended over time as required.
