Project Description

The business is an engineering firm that offers machinery maintenance and also a variety of workshop services such as fabrication, milling and turning, casting, laser cutting etc. The company currently employs 30 people. We have two engineers in the office, a factory foreman (who managers workflow everyday), two receptionists and a general manager, the rest of the employees work on the floor (boilermakers, fitters and turners)

The company currently use a paper based system when assigning jobs to workers and all time spent on a job is assigned to a job card. This is used as different workers have many different jobs per day, some workers both work on the same job, others do not. After jobs have been assigned and the job is finished, the receptionist then enters the data into MYOB, then the finished job card is filed and retrieved later if needed. The job card includes the job name, company the job is for, hours employees have worked on the job and also materials which are linked to purchase orders. Once the job is finished, the hours are tallied up and the client is charged the rate, then the materials totaled and a percentage allocated on-top which is the profit.

This current method of workflow is slow, has errors and is unreliable.

The company would like to get a system that can do all the above with greater functionality. However some of the accounting and such features should be locked so only the receptionist, general manager and bookkeeper can access. The workers on the floor should only be able to see job allocation and also allocated time. Furthermore when a piece of material is ordered it is listed on the job card, we would also like the status of delivery to display on the system so the workers are able to see if the materials have been delivered or not.

We are looking for a developer with experience in developing business IT systems like this. This system can be unique or a modification of an existing system. The system must be easy to use, user friendly and possibly integrate with MYOB for the accounting side of things, also to determine profit and loss.

A developer in Victoria, Australia would be great as they can aid in the implementation of the system, however not required!
