Business Benefits

Metrologx’s Client didn’t have to wait long for the desired optimisation of the ordering process as, working in tandem, they and PGS Software were able to develop the entire solution in just 4 weeks, launching its live release without any issues or delays.

    • Car manufacturers and suppliers are now able to save on converting orders, as they no longer need to be manually edited.
    • By moving away from traditional methods, which require cost-intensive specialists and by dispensing with conventional SAP or ERP solutions, the Client saves enormous labour costs.
    • AWS Lambda saves further expenses, because the calculation is done in milliseconds and payments are only required for actual usage.
    • Client can now easily innovate and expand their business reach as the platform allows for the processing of millions of messages on a daily basis and costs 100 times less than similar solutions
