Each location of DE was using standalone software packages for
their operations and finance department. Due to this it was difficult
and inefficient for the group management to get overall business
information from each location. Within each location, the operations
department and finance department were using separate software
packages. This resulted in inefficiency, lack of control as well
as duplication of data entry.
NeoSoft/ExcelSoft suggested a web
centric software (e-Freight), solution
to DE. The software is well integrated with modules such as Air
Freight operations, Sea Freight operations, Finance and HRD. This
solution is being implemented in all locations.
The biggest challenge for the client lay in centralized data for
decision making purposes. Each production facility maintained
its own data related to inventory, vendor, human resource and

an ERP system.
A requirement for the system was to provide for retrieving data
from all the distributed sources, validate the data and integrate
it with a central repository for reporting and analytical purposes.

Having business areas ranging from Trade Financing to Renovation
loans, the banking industry is highly regulated with many banking
rules. Our client has itself issued many regulatory and (internal)
procedure instruction circulars as well as information circulars

way to automate these instructions and circulars to expedite searching
of documents via index searching and gain staff productivity.
Eliminate the flow of physical paper between branches & departments.
Finally, the need to destroy a document after a specified period.
A requirement for the system was to provide for the scanning and
uploading of such scanned and other electronic documents to an
automated system, thereby removing the need for physical storage
of such documents. The second requirement was the ability of users
to share the documents irrespective of their location, by leveraging
investment in their current infrastructure.
developed a document management solution to meet the client's
requirements. This solution involved integrating the physical
and electronic documents into such a document management system,
with necessary indexing and profiling of the documents for retrieval
purposes based on access rights.
