Project Center application

Complete B2B project management solution

THE CHALLENGE

Hadrian, North America’s leading supplier of quality bathroom partition and locker products, makes it its mission to stay ahead of the curve and provide clients and partners with added-value technological tools. Based on its Project Center application, a full-fledged bathroom partition project management solution made accessible to Hadrian’s distributors, Hadrian has dominated the industry for many years. In order to solidify its position as the clear-cut leader and to generate efficiency gains, Hadrian called upon nventive to develop the new, game-changing version of its Project Center.

OUR SOLUTION

nventive was chosen to lead the way and tackle this major project, which consisted of replacing the well-established Project Center, which had been in use since 2005. The goal was to review and upgrade the Project Center into an easily maintained, user-friendly platform that is scalable over time. To achieve this, nventive and Hadrian teams collaborated to extract the numerous business rules incorporated in the legacy software over a period of almost 15 years and transferred them to the new one.

For an added layer of complexity, the new solution had to be integrated seamlessly into the management software used for all of Hadrian’s operational activities. We therefore started by building a website in dotnet core, C# and MS SQL, allowing users to make the most of the essential functionalities of the Project Center at all times, no matter their operating system and notably including project creation, configuration of partitions, generation of a complete file with architectural plans, specifications, ordering and monitoring, and user management.

THE RESULTS

The general aim of Project Center Next was to simplify the system’s maintenance on the Hadrian side, ensuring the solution’s long-term stability and modernizing the technological infrastructure. In addition, the platform’s web accessibility now facilitates exchanges with Hadrian customers and increases employee productivity.

With the project well under way, Hadrian and nventive are committed to upgrading the solution and to transfer all of the remaining options currently available in the previous version while adding new features, all with the ultimate goal of delivering the best user experience possible and providing both customers and employees with greater management autonomy.
