Project Description

A large stock control system, developed for Windows CE 4.0 devices using the .NET Framework and working to very tight deadlines, the solution was delivered to specification.

Windows CE 4.0 devices do not have the luxury of expansive memory reserves and connectivity; we had to work within very tight memory limits with only periodic network connectivity. We deployed limited cut-down datasets to the devices and carefully developed a synchronisation algorithm to push and pull updates to and from the central server.

Handheld devices were supplied to Jewson’s warehouses together with a server. Modules included product and price checking, replenishment and goods receipt, on device label printing and batch upload and download of data.

Subcontracted for Ten25 and Touchstone Software.
