Custom Designed Business Solutions
Custom business technology solutions have been a part of our DNA since before C2IT even existed. From integration tools and reporting systems to B2B web portals and internal-use mobile apps, C2IT can bring the right technology to the table to address your business needs.
C2IT’s first reporting system goes back to the late 1990’s when president Chet Cromer started building a back office reporting system for Indianapolis-based National Car Rental Licensee ARELCO, Inc. As the system grew and other franchises learned of its value, the tool expaneded into an international web-based reporting system used to report on and analyze car rental systems.
As time has passed, C2IT has grown to work with National’s various parent companies (now Enterprise Holdings, Inc.) and build scores of automation, integration, and reporting systems, most recently including an overhaul of a license place recognition and vehicle tracking system used to audit vehicle movements and manage damage control.
Northern Lights Locating and Inspection
C2IT and Plainfield-based Northern Lights Locating and Inspection, Inc. have essentially grown up together. C2IT began serving Northern Lights in the early 2000’s for general technology solutions but quickly evolved into the go-to custom-software provider as well.
After crafting a utility locating management system tham served Northern Lights for over a decade, the teams gathered together and hand-crafted a best-in-class mobile app, back end portal, and analytical reporting system that has continued to propel Northern Lights to new heights.
Gripp is an Indianapolis-based water-flow management provider. They work with a variety of vendors and municipalities to provide accurate data in both real time reports and historical analytical dashboards.
C2IT came on-board to help Gripp integrate a 3rd party CRM into their operations for account management, email automation, and asset tracking. We explored their needs and then customized this CRM solution and extended it through API communications to meet the business’ needs.
Step Savers is a midwest water-softener salt delivery business seeking to make their operations more efficient and profitable through the use of technology. C2IT worked with Step Savers to craft a proposal of a mobile app and web portal that would streamline business processes while giving mobile delivery drivers tools to make their day-to-day tasks more accurate and efficient.
The system proposed incorporated scheduling, routing, billing, and fleet management. This business model is significantly different than others C2IT has worked with, but we were able to quickly discover and build and understanding of the business model and workflows that would help propel Step Savers to new heights.
C2IT has a long-standing relationship with Willoughby Industries, a nation-wide designer, manufacturer, and distributor of high-quality durable plumbing fixtures used in commercial, penal, government, and educational facilities. For over a decade the businesses have been working together to build highly-functional tools that streamline business operations and customer relations.
A recent project was an overhaul of a corporate website that incorporated hundreds of products, engineering drawings, and linked parts listing that allowed inside engineers and sales people to work with customers across the country. This site not only brought technical data to customers, but also provided a platform for general marketing and promotional ventures within a single platform.
Chet Cromer, C2IT’s founder and CEO, started working for Indianapolis-based National Car Sales when he was only 16 years old. Almost 3 decades later, and throughout several mergers, aquisitions, and spin-offs, the partnership between C2IT and National is still strong.
National Remarketing exists in a high-paper industry as they purchase and resell vehicles to customers across the country. C2IT helps the organization thrive by providing web-based and Excel-based management systems and reporting that keeps data flowing between various internal and 3rd party systems.
While every solution we built is unique, everyone likes a roadmap.
Discovery is about much more than just showing a client what we could do for them and hoping it helps. Our discovery process is about listening, learning, and then repeating everything back to you in our own words to make sure we understand your needs. Only then do we present our full project proposal, because only then do we truly know we can help meet your needs and see you achieve your goals.
Deep down inside, we love to code. We love to craft simple yet powerful data models that bring life to your project in a way you never imagined. But we’ve learned the hard way that writing code without knowing what it really needs to accomplish is a waste of everyone’s time. By the time we get to this stage of your project, we know what you need, you know what you need, and it’s time to get our hands dirty and produce.
There’s much more to design than laying out wire-frames and picking fonts. The design stage of our project cycle covers it all – look and feel, mobile needs, and leaves you with a functional prototype that you can actually do something with. In some cases, this may be all we do for you; the project may be too big for the moment, the prototype may do the job, or you may be ready to dive in. Whatever the next step, we’re here to walk it with you.
This is it… don’t get scared now. It’s time to launch your project. It’s time to show the world – or maybe just your team – the next big thing. Whether we’re helping you take your business online, building an online portal to sell your wares, or simply setting up a new office with tech so your team can better collaborate and communicate, the day will come when it’s time to flip the switches and say GO! We can’t wait to be there with you on this day.
