What was the scope of their involvement?
GNS IT handled the full-cycle development for our custom ERP. The backend tech stack included PHP 7, RabbitMQ, MariaDB, and a Chrome REST API. On the frontend, they used Node.js and npm. For QA, they used Python, Selenium, and Codeception.
One of the biggest challenges that the new ERP addresses is schedule management. Since we’re a large educational institution, we needed a way to track all of our classes and coordinate between instructors, students, and other client groups seeking course training. With the new system, we’re able to manage those resources and better organize our classes.
The ERP also functions as a CRM, allowing our internal teams to see our service history with our clients. In addition to tracking our prospective and existing clients’ needs, the system provides real-time analytics for all of our financial data.
We’ve rolled out the ERP, and GNS IT is currently working on modifying features and adding new functions. They’re looking to add new tables to our reports and will focus on enhancing our financial models.
What is the team composition?
We primarily communicate with their project manager, but there’s a team working in the background.
How did you come to work with GNS IT?
We’re located in the same building, so we already knew that they had a good, qualified team. When we asked them to join the project, they agreed.
What is the status of this engagement?
Their work started in December 2015 and is ongoing.
