Custom ERP and invoicing system for Dutch construction company

AvoKoenen is a Dutch construction company. The programmers at LiteBreeze developed a web platform to handle all day-to-day business activities at AvoKoenen. The application enables management of work orders, invoices, audits, reports and financial analysis to meet managerial requirements.

This software handles information regarding construction contract work, namely:-

Work order

Seamless flow of work functions is ensured by provision to search details easily inorder to find any task related information irrspective of work status. Time is of the essence, therefore the program tracks the login of time as well as raw materials utilised. Immediate customer feedback is an inherent part of this program.

Invoicing

Every state-of-the-art construction outfit needs a proper system of invoicing. Litebreeze developed a simple, practical yet modernized system that includes auto billing of work orders, generation of PDF invoices and handling invoice payments.

Projects

In AvoKoenen, keeping track of project details is almost a breeze due to software developed by LiteBreeze. The program tracks multiple work-orders and (size based work-orders) that are managed into projects. The project view (includes profit and its percentage of budgeted/ spent/ purchased amounts) provides in-depth calculations based on the credits and usage of raw-materials.

Creditor Payments

The implementation of the highly sophisticated yet simple software program developed by LiteBreeze significantly reduces manual administration work.To ease creditor payment, the software includes: SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) payment integration. SEPA is an European Union initiative to simplify bank transfers denominated in Euro. SEPA enables customers to make cashless payments to anyone located anywhere in the area, using a single bank account and a single set of payment instruments.

Apart from this, the software offers the following facilities:

  • Bank payment
  • Integration of data- automatically with project and based on work-orders
  • Publish company based PDF documents
  • Balance sheet generation & graphical representation of those balance sheets
  • Calculate and view statement of assets/liabilities and capital, reports with detailed current statistics
  • Detailed report generation of Income and Expenditure in Excel
  • User/ product/ client/ creditors administration - manage / retrieve information easily with intuitive interface and auto-complete feature
  • Categorize information based on user roles

This website manages information for two companies namely Avo & Koenen. The site is available in two languages as well - Dutch and English. However all inputs are formatted for Dutch.

All existing data was exported to work with the new application. Earlier it was done using Excel. The information is now available on the Internet which makes information retrieval much faster. Data is backed up daily.

PHP's latest Codeigniter 3 framework was used with jQuery for easier autosuggest features. We have employed responsive design for ease of mobile-based transactions. MySQL is utilized for data storage.

I trust the team at LiteBreeze. Before starting, I thought it could be challenging to establish a smooth business relationship with a company that is 7000 km away from home. But I must say, the Litebreeze staff knows how to build rapport.
