Large Restaurant Company Enhances Scheduling

A $4 billion multi-unit restaurant company needed a better way to manage its scheduling than the existing in-house labor scheduling application provided. We developed a robust scheduling application that allows managers to plan ahead and attain near perfect efficiency in schedule generation.

The application was integrated with the Point of Sale (POS) system, allowing managers to enforce schedules to clock-in screens. Results included reduced labor and overtime costs, improved guest service and greater employee satisfaction. DOWNLOAD PDF

Global Film Manufacturer Replaces Plant Floor System

This company needed to replace an end-of-life film material plant floor system with a more modern system that would be easier to support and maintain. After considering a solution from a leading ERP provider, the manufacturer chose Cognizant to develop a custom solution constructed with Microsoft .Net technologies.

The project took half the time the customer expected and the manufacturer now has the flexibility it needs to better support its own clients.

Better Warehouse Management for a Large Retailer

A U.S. retail giant needed an updated warehouse management system for a smoother flow of warehouse operations and better customer experience. As part of the engagement, we added a comprehensive e-commerce fulfillment capability to its existing warehouse management system. We also implemented REST-based Web services to the database for core business functions and a J2EE backend for new functions.

The revamped system improved productivity and quality output for all involved in the workflow.

Leading Media and Entertainment Company Slashes Costs

To reduce costs, a global music company outsourced the development and maintenance work for its applications, which included SAP Financials and the Oracle 10G database. We took on this task using onsite/offshore development methodology.

The company experienced vastly improved project governance, easier and more effective application support and the flexibility to adjust resources as required. DOWNLOAD PDF
