A client supplying products to the building industry provided a strong guarantee of performance that was tied to a written specification. Historically, when a product was sold to a builder, the client had to manually generate the specification, which covered all elements of construction and included variables such as accessories and site location.
Blueberry supplied the company with a system that generates this information automatically, using all relevant data to arrive at the correct specification. The data for generating the specifications is held in a MS SQL database and the user accesses the database via client software written in C# .NET. The client software guides the user through a series of questions to arrive at the correct specification.
The success of the software has resulted in benefits for the whole sales force, making it much easier for the technical services operation to support architects and specifiers.
