Case Study : eziParts Pty. Ltd.
eziParts Australia and eziParts New Zealand utilizes Xtreme Toolkit Professional to quickly deliver cutting-edge business tools for the auto parts dismantling industry.
eziParts Pty. Ltd. creates, markets and supports customer relationship, inventory management and web site content management tools for the Microsoft Windows platform. Their primary market is the Auto Parts industry.
eziParts Pty. Ltd. needed to provide a modern GUI with the latest GUI features such as Visual Studio and Microsoft Office style docking panes, menus, toolbars, etc. Their software had to have a world class look about it and provide a friendly, easy to use appeal to the end user.
"Most other products don't replicate the known Windows look. We needed our GUI to look and feel like a true high end Microsoft produced product. Codejock fulfilled this need." - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
Before we even started ‘eziParts’ the creaters of eziParts researched the world for products that they would need to help them build the quality product they envisioned. After realizing they would have to develop their product from scratch, discovering Codejock was a god send. "I'm not sure how our product would have looked without Codejock. Codejock components really have become a key to our success." - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
Initially they had to learn how to use the Codejock components effectively. "With the fantastic support we received from the Codejock support team, we accomplished this task with ease." - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
Using Codejock's Xtreme Toolkit Pro with their continuing development of their products, provides eziParts developers with current windows style controls and makes their task of keeping with the times a breeze.
The Codejock Xtreme Toolkit Pro not only provided a quick upgrade path, but also brought them opportunities to enhance the functionality and flexibility of the product for the new release, extending its lifetime beyond initial plans.
"By the use of Codejock software our product looks like a true Microsoft Windows XP product. Our customers relate to this very easily and straight away our product inherits the credibility of professional enterprise grade software. The controls are also very easy for users to relate to making an easy to use interface." - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
eziParts utilized nearly every feature of the Xtreme Toolkit to create a glossy world class product that had instant appeal to their users.
Xtreme Toolkit Pro provided eziParts with a high level of compatibility with existing MFC architecture, with a very faithful implementation of features common in modern Windows GUI applications; source code availability allows end-user customization of library as needed.
"These controls look and operate fantastic. We could not have developed such an outstanding GUI application without the use of the Codejock products." - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
The Results - 'eziParts'
'eziParts' is an all in one business management tool for Auto Dismantlers. Customer Relationship management, inventory management, business to business connectivity for live online purchasing B2B.
‘eziParts’ main advantage is providing 'ease of use' to the auto parts dismantling industry. All past software for the dismantling industry have been built in DOS and very early versions of windows. They look very unfriendly and are even more complicated to use. 'eziParts' straight away looks friendly, easy to use and dismantlers love it! ‘eziParts’ has also made the management of inventory on the users web site a seamless process, all in house stock is synchronized automatically with an offsite database. The offsite databases can then be linked to provide the searching of stock across multiple businesses.
‘eziParts’ manages the dismantlers stock (vehicles), the parts they sell off the vehicles, importing of parts and managing the online customer sales/invoicing. ‘eziParts’ also automatically updates the stock items on the users web site and allows B2B inventory searching directly online through the eziParts interface. They have also incorporated web site content management, calendar controls, tasks, and an email interface that looks exactly like MS Outlook.
Codejock Software's Xtreme Toolkit Pro helped eziParts Pty. Ltd. meet their strategic business objectives and goals because they didn't have to spend a lot of time reinventing the wheel to provide the GUI functionality that their application needed. Instead, with minimal effort, they were able to leverage the Xtreme Toolkit Pro for this part of their application, allowing them to focus their efforts on implementing other features specific to their application.
eziParts Pty. Ltd. found that their users were already familiar with the functionality of Codejock controls. Users could relate to the GUI look and feel, and straight away could not only use their 'eziParts' product, but perceived 'eziParts' was a true professional windows XP product.
"With this came the same credibility of a professional windows product and made our sell an extremely easy task. We love you guys at Codejock!!" - Richard Delahoy, Director, eziParts Australia & eziParts New Zealand
eziParts Pty. Ltd. are already being approached by other industry people to customize and deploy their ‘eziParts’ product into their industry.
