Technology Solutions follows a straight forward development approach
when creating applications and systems for our customers
a project manager:
the person from your company who has an understanding of computer
technology. This person should have a clear understanding of information
flow between departments in your organization. This person must
be willing to work with department system manager to determine
an accurate project scope. The project manager will be the primary
contact with Barcode Technology Solutions during system development
and testing. This person should be prepared to become the in-house
system expert and provide technical support to departments following
a system manager:
the project manager can not serve as the in-house system expert
after development a company representative should be identified
early to work with the project manager and Barcode Technology
Solutions as the system is developed. This individual will be
responsible for completely learning the system and will provide
support to users as necessary.
Technology Solutions will provide initial training for the system
manager and staff using the system. The system manager will provide
continued training, support, and maintenance for the system and
staff as needed. (Barcode Technology Solutions can serve in this
roll if necessary for an additional charge. It is to your advantage
to have some one in house who is willing to take on this responsibility.)
a department system manager(s):
department using the system will need to designate a person responsible
to completely learn the system as it affects their department.
This person will be responsible for updating the system and training
staff as needed. The department manager will work with the system
manager to make sure that the system is performing as expected.

be collected, what information the individuals in each department
will need to know.

new system for customers, suppliers, record keeping etc. (Keep
in mind, that the new system can keep electronic records and
move information paperlessly.)
any bottlenecks experienced in the existing system that you
want streamlined with the new system.
describe goals of the new system. It is to your advantage
to get feed back from end users to make sure the new system
will work efficiently and that staff feels ownership toward
it. Use the data provided by end users to outline the system
the system development team review the requirements to make
sure they are accurate. Modify if necessary then contact Barcode
Technology Solutions to develop a system specification.
Technology Solutions will take the information you provide and
develop a system specification. This specification must be reviewed
by the system development team to make sure it is accurate and
will meet company needs. Changes will be made if necessary. Once
the specification is approved the system development will begin.
During Barcode Technology Solutions will periodically deliver
alpha copies to project manager for review and testing.
project manager is responsible for:
alpha files to verify conformity to specifications and that
they meet their objectives, noting any “bugs” that are found.
any changes that need to be made to meet the needs of the system.
questions about the product to make sure information is understood
and on track.
report progress and show the system to the department system
managers to make sure it is meeting company requirements.
development is complete, a final beta will be distributed and Barcode
Technology Solutions will coordinate installation of any hardware
and peripherals to support the system. Barcode Technology Solutions

the system and train the system users.
