Highway Constructor Vecellio Group and Ephlux create Field Reporting app
Vecellio Group, one of the Top 400 building/contracting firms in US, engaged Ephlux to design and develop field reporting application for their foremen across their job sites with real-time iIntegration with JD Edwards using AIS, Node JS and HTML5
Vecellio Group is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated business providing a wide range of heavy/highway, mining, and energy services and products to our valued public- and private-sector customers throughout the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States and beyond.
Vecellio Group needed a field reporting solution for their construction job sites spread across the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions in the United States. The need was to automate the manual process of submitting the labor hours, tool utilization and raw-material across the various job sites and consolidate them against Job Cost accounting and streamlining the payroll in JD Edwards for the hourly construction workers.
The need was to design a robust, future-proof solution which could be retained even after the customer upgraded from their JD Edwards 9.1 to 9.2. The need was also for the solution to be easily scalable across the job sites and functional across different mobile devices including iOS, Android and Windows tablets with built-in offline capabilities
Ephlux evaluated multiple options including AIS / REST and Business Services (BSSVs) for JD Edwards integration and recommended Vecellio to move forward with the AIS which was rather new at that point in time. On the front-end Ephlux utilized the latest web/mobile stack using AngularJS combined with NodeJS for the web-services and integration with JD Edwards AIS. Ephlux had multiple iterations with the customer’s team to make them comfortable and to finalize the application stack.
The solution design was then detailed out and the development was completed in a matter of few months. The application launch was super successful and since then has been rolled out across other construction companies of the Vecellio Group and has become an integral application for Job Site Reporting. Ephlux is working closely with Vecellio Group to keep enhancing the application as it scaled across the group and job sites.
