Coresystems Inc. is a leading Swiss software development company of ERP solutions for international customers. While coresystems already offers their mobile ERP application on iOS, Android and Silverlight frontends, there is currently no support for Microsoft’s Windows 8 platforms. The goal of this project was therefore to develop a new Windows 8 ERP frontend for coresystems, applying an innovative UI design and software architecture.
In this project, we have designed and implemented the new mobile ERP application for Windows 8 Store, which supports the major data model of the coresystems ERP and also integrates to their existing data cloud. Compared to the existing coresystems solutions, this application features the following highlights: (1) A cutting-edge user interface design which follows the guidelines for Windows 8 Store Apps and is touch-optimized both on tablets and PCs. (2) A flexible offline modus which allows the user to work on a local database that performs automatic background synchronization to cloud services when connected to the internet. (3) A flexible data model that can be easily extended towards a larger set of ERP data on the coresystems cloud.
Our developed ERP mobile application is fully functional, enables intuitive usage, effective offline and online work. It will serve as a demonstrator for coresystems in the Microsoft’s mobile platform area and provides a solid base for further development and extensions. It is planned that the new application will be presented at the CeBit 2013 tech fair.
