ESSPL had disparate systems to cater to the information and document managment needs of various business functions like Sales and Marketing, Delivery/Projects, HR, Finance, Facilities etc. The reporting process involved manual compillation of data from multiple data sources. Most of the systems were information islands with typical usability challenges of legacy software. ESSPL wanted to implement an integrated portal solution covering key business functions and reduce overheads involved in running its business efficiently . With the future vision envisaging high growth , it was essential to have a comprehensive solution in place without incurring unncessary licensing cost of proprietory software.


The functional features were divided into separate modules and the custom development was done using key technologies like JSF/Primefaces, Spring jQuery, PosgreSQL DBMS etc. Industry wide best practices and design patterns were employed to ensure rapid development and rollout. Out of box features were leveraged to the maximum to avoid reinventing of wheel . The UI design was consistently maintain across modules to make it intuitive and requiring least training needs. A rich set of reports and charts were added to aid better decision making. All data from existing legacy systems were imported and synchronized. The whole application was hosted on low cost VM infrastructure with Ubuntu Linux as OS.
