Industry: Food Manufacturing
DIANA, one of the largest meat processing and distribution company in Romania, partnered with Insoftive to develop a comprehensive Sales Force Automation (SFA) mobile application. This case study highlights the successful implementation of Insoftive's Mobile SFA Application, which empowered DIANA's sales agents to place orders directly from their mobile devices, work seamlessly offline, leverage a robust backend system for centralized order management, enjoy advanced user rights based on distribution lists, and benefit from real-time communication with DIANA's backend software systems through microservices implementation.
DIANA faced several challenges in their sales operations, including the need for streamlined order placement, limited internet connectivity in remote areas, centralized order management, secure access control, and real-time communication with backend systems. They sought an efficient solution that would enhance sales agent productivity, overcome offline limitations, streamline order processing, ensure data security, and enable seamless communication with their existing backend software systems.

This feature ensured that sales agents had access to relevant customer data and product catalogs, while maintaining data security and confidentiality. It allowed for granular control, enhancing privacy and streamlining operations within the sales force.
- To facilitate real-time communication with DIANA's existing backend software systems, Insoftive implemented microservices architecture. This approach enabled seamless integration and synchronization of data between the Mobile SFA Application and the backend systems. Real-time updates ensured that sales agents had access to the latest information, facilitating informed decision-making and enhancing overall operational efficiency.
