The first stage of the project was to fully understand the data processing task – how “ideal” data was managed, the
multiple variants of data format, and the exceptions to the data processing rules.
WyeTec designed a complex but versatile system that allowed for each customer’s data to be mapped to a standard format,
with a series of processing functions and validity checks. Each customer was assigned a hot folder, into which they could place
orders for fulfilment.
A processing server monitors the hot folders for new files. On receipt of an order, the system performs a series
of validity checks, and either enters the file on the system as a job to process or, if the data had validation
errors in it, rejects it and flags the errors.
A client application allows operators to view jobs, authorise them for fulfilment, or reject them if necessary.
The entirety of this side of our client’s operations have now been successfully migrated to the new system, saving our client money
and enabling them to fulfil orders more efficiently.
