The Challenge: 

It was very difficult to find a suitable standardized software solution at the market to match Gateway's requirements. The customized system was implemented and only after that did the company realized, it does not meet the requirements again and after 6 months was substituted by the solution developed by NextLogic.

The Solution: 

System developed for Gateway Avenue has some features you can find in any standardized inventory control solution BUT the scope and depth of these features and additional features is fully customized for the company. It does not have restrictions you often find in standardized solutions (f.e. only 2 levels of categorization of items, 2 levels categorization of locations in the store, etc.). Solution has all the special features and reflects all special ways of handling the business that company required.


Solution is fully implemented and used by the company for almost 3 years without any major problems and turnover of the company has doubled since the time system was put in place. System also serves the purpose of the controlling body in the company.
