Custom software application and web solution developer Co-OpTek IT Solutions completed an e-commerce solution for Assemblers, Inc., an international contract packaging, assembly, mailing and fulfillment company based in Sterling, Virginia.

Because Assemblers manages inventory, packaging and mailing services for some high volume consumer products companies, there was a growing demand for real-time ordering, inventory management and reporting over the Internet. The process of communicating inventory counts, taking orders and fulfilling shipping requests was manual and often involved sending faxes and emails. As the Company grew and added more customers, the cumbersome manual processes increased the cost of doing business.

"We needed a way to not only do more with less but also make it easier for our international customers to do business with us," says Nasr Chaudhry, CEO of Assemblers. "We knew we needed to set up an e-commerce platform to help manage our growth but we had no idea how to do it or an unlimited budget, which is why we turned to Co-Op Tek."

Chaudhry had heard favorable reports about Co-OpTek's ability to create innovative custom software and web interface applications while adhering to strict time deadlines. "I had to have somebody who would understand my exact needs, almost read my mind, to create the result I wanted," Chaudhry says. "Co-OpTek really listened to me, and what's more, understood how I wanted to run my business."

"The project was a particular challenge because there was no easy way to set up a web interface for the inventory database used by Assemblers," admits Co-OpTek's Paul Phillips. "Custom web interfaces are a specialty of ours, so after some initial research and design drafts, we discovered a way to utilize C# and ASP.NET to quickly and efficiently set up the links between the SQL database and Assemblers' website."

"The team at Co-OpTek created the exact web interface solution my customers needed to check their inventory levels, place orders and view key reports, and they completed it quickly and under budget," Chaudhry enthuses. "I would strongly recommend Co-OpTek for any custom software design projects or web applications given their professionalism, ability to work fast and accomplish exactly what a customer needs."
