About Client

The client is a leading manufacturer that designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions which are key ingredients in the well-being of each of us and the future of all. The client is a global manufacturing giant found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications. 

The Challenge

The client will be manufacturing different types of glasses and tons of them per day. Tracking the glasses from procurement to disposal was challenging as it was performed manually and updated in the backend. Especially tracking the missing or damaged glasses during a project or from one project zone to another was backbreaking and tiresome, resulting in increased production cost and total cost of ownership. Also, the client wanted a web admin app for managing the users in each plant.

Key Results

  • Digital product catalog
  • Seamless product addition/deletion
  • Improved customer experience
  • Increased sales 

Our Approach

The challenge for Hakuna Matata’s team was to utilize the existing app and convert all the static data to dynamic data like Plant, User, Process Level etc; enabling offline sync; UI enhancement; NFC read and write capability; RFID reader for accessing tags on the materials. We segmented the challenges and started executing one by one to complete the project on time. 

Our Solution

Understanding the requirements, we started with the Android application (coupled with NFC reader) for employees to track the assets on the go. RFID tags are used in the glasses for tracking them and beacons were used to track the glass materials when they are in transit from one project zone to another. The web CMS helped the admin to add the new users on the plant and this helped the entire material tracking process seamless and simple. With this system in place, the client was able to accelerate the production speed and deliver products on time without any hassle and at a reduced cost.
