The customer is a middle-sized company that sells eBooks and cooperates with multiple publishers worldwide. Among the requirements to the application were the following:
- Build a transparent sales reporting system.
- Make the system available for all participants: publishers, resellers, authors, and store managers.
- Integrate the system with a custom web platform.
- Add the offline functionality for reports.
- Make the reporting process secure and available for mobile.
- Add printing and PDF generating features.
For this project, the SCAND mobile team developed a comprehensive reporting system and built it in the Android application. Despite the minimalistic look of the app, our specialists have managed to integrate several important features, including advanced reporting, smart filters and rules, and convenient interface. All these features are available any time from a mobile device. On top of that, our team added the ability to generate reports to PDF files and print them.
