The primary purpose of operations management systems is to streamline an organization's business processes and improve operational efficiency. By automating repetitive tasks and providing real-time visibility into all aspects of the business, operations systems can help organizations improve workflow, reduce costs, and increase profits.
Operations software can be used to manage a wide range of business operations, including quotation generation, production management, scheduling, inventory control, order processing, shipping and transportation, and much more. A custom operations management system can be tailored to meet the specific needs of any organization and include virtually any feature you may need to streamline your business operations. Operations software is a valuable addition to any business that will help you achieve your goals and improve your bottom line.
Custom Quote System
- Automated quote generation
- Real-time pricing adjustment
- Seamless integration with existing systems
Generating accurate quotations is an essential part of automating business operations. The basic functionality of a quotation system is to help businesses provide accurate pricing to customers instantaneously. No two orders are the same and the quotation making software needs to be advanced enough to handle these nuances. We build custom quotation systems that connect between pricing, product details and order specifics to provide your customers with the most accurate quotes, allowing them to proceed with the purchase without hesitation.
Online Ordering System
- Live inventory updates
- Custom price margins
- Quantity discounts
Development and implementation of these online ordering systems leads to seamless end-to-end order placement that significantly improves the ease of the process. Additionally, the elimination of human involvement in the ordering process reduces staffing costs, eradicates the risk of human errors, and makes the ordering systems available 24/7. Special calculator integration also drastically boosts the speed with which large, complex orders are placed and processed. The automation of this system helps reduce supply chain complexity while allowing multi-stage customizations with ease.
Custom Inventory Management Software
- Real-time dashboards
- Automatic conversions of metrics and currencies
- Multiple warehouse management
- Access and tracking of SKUs in all facilities
Every company operates differently in terms of inventory management. While inventory management software applications are available commercially, many of the features are either not applicable for some companies or insufficient for others. Custom inventory management software is designed and tailored to meet your exact specifications. These systems include specialized features for companies, such as compatibility with barcode and QR code scanners, relationships between assemblies with complex part combinations, connectivity to multiple warehouses and databases, real-time updates to stock levels, track using dashboards, dedicated client logins, automatic stock level updates, and more. For businesses that have suppliers in multiple countries, a custom inventory system can help with automated conversions of metrics and currencies, which is useful for uniformity while offering convenience.
- Integration with other systems
- Custom item discounts and rental terms
- Recurring, short-term, and long-term rental support
Custom rental tracking and management software is designed to allow clients to supply items on long-term and short-term rentals to customers. The rental software can be integrated with custom ERPs and all database types, SQL-based and others. The functionality of this system is built to support recurring rentals as well as custom discounts for rental prices. Rented items are automatically updated in the inventory management system to record and track accurate stock levels. Rental items can be assigned different statuses including lost items, repairs, and maintenance, with the support of custom work creation. The rental software can also be integrated with reporting systems to provide high-level overviews of the state of the inventory on hand.
With other aspects being involved, this system allows multi-stage equipment rentals.
- Automatic PDF generator
- Picture-to-PDF conversion & Searchable PDF
- Generate PDF for product configurator
Modern websites have dynamic pages where the information that is displayed is generated from databases based on input from different systems such as product builders, ordering systems, e-commerce platforms, and more. However, there are situations where this data must be saved or printed. Examples of these situations include invoices, order information, shipping details, inventory data, performance statistics etc. The most common format to save the data in is PDF.
Automatic PDF generators were designed to store this unique information for later reference and put it into a more accessible format for emailing, printouts or backups. In unique situations, scanned images were converted to searchable text in PDF format to facilitate navigation through archives with large quantities of scanned information and documents.
- CRM and ERP connection
- Quantity discount and special rate calculations
- Multiple shipping and merchant integrations
Currently, there are various commercially available software applications to facilitate e-commerce functionality such as Shopify. These have a fixed set of features that are meant to work with straightforward e-commerce operations. However, in more complicated scenarios, these lack features to meet the unique needs of individual businesses.
Complex e-commerce solutions were designed and tailored to meet specialized requirements such as customizable price margins, connectivity to product builder tools, quantity-based discount calculations and connection to CRM and ERP systems. Order placement features included support for QR codes or scanner guns. Additionally, special rate calculators and communication with multiple shipping carrier databases were designed. These features were implemented based on client needs in order to improve the specific capabilities of e-commerce systems unique to each client.

Great team, fast and reliable. Highly recommended for your software needs.Alex Sirenko
First started working with Vestra Inet around 6 years ago for the development of our website. Had frustration dealing with other firms prior to Vestra, so was a pleasant surprise the time and effort their team took to understand our vision and to create something that we could manage on our own. They were always up to date on the latest technology and ensured our page was as well. As their services portfolio has grown in the last few years, specifically with ERP development, we will continue to leverage their know how where we can.Curtis Pump
Vestra developed multiple projects for us throughout a number of years. We first started with a small online ordering system and later on they created something different that really surprised us, they added a feature to automate our conventional ovens! Their customer service and support are top notch, always there to assist in any way.dmitri polusmac
