Grow Your Business with Essential JS 2

Challenge and Solution

My name is Brandon Mitchell, and I am the owner and senior IT specialist of Tech 365. The CFO of my company has a really cool vision. He’s in the trucking industry, and the people in that industry want the ability to have greater transparency. For example, lots of times, the drivers want the ability to see every day how much they’re getting paid.

There’s a cool demo on our website of what our app does. We use a calendar view to show these drivers that, if you deliver by 5 PM, here is your pay. Right now, we have a data export that comes from a third party. The data is put in Excel and then run through pivot tables. Also, we use the same data on the website to calculate payments, missing paperwork, etc.

When this demo was made, we were doing a lot of manual work to figure out how much contractors were getting paid. We knew there had to be a faster way to do it. To be honest, I’d never even heard of Syncfusion when I started Googling for solutions. Though there are other libraries out there, they’re more costly to integrate either financially or in the time it takes in-house to integrate them.

Now, with Syncfusion’s tools, we’re using the JavaScript functionality of their Pivot Table and skipping the Excel document altogether. Cuttng out the Excel piece at the highest level with the data table and pivot view combined saves us 20 hours a week. Especially for running payroll and determining the different loads taken, this makes the whole process much faster.

Different teams can even save different pivot views. One team can see all loads per driver for a day. They can create a view and save it with one click. So it’s astronomically faster. Doing the calculations from the JavaScript program is really cool.

The fact that this toolkit works great and the fact that it works on mobile devices is amazing. We live in a very mobile world, so to be able to parse, display, and render data in mobile devices is a great benefit.

On the other side, we’re starting to use these tools internally. The data tables allow a grouping option for doing IT support tickets. We can view all the tickets, by priority, by client. This helps us view clients of a higher priority and nurture them. And we can drag and drop to show this without reloading a dozen times.

Using Syncfusion tools allows us to provide a better experience to our customers and sell more products. Especially with executive clients, showing them what Syncfusion tools can offer through our app, being able to solve everyday problems that they have inside their office, it creates a great amount of growth for us. Being able to export to PDF and Excel files to send to clients using Syncfusion tools is really helpful as well.

We haven’t even begun to implement everything we want to do. Right now, we’re using the JavaScript Pivot Table and DataGrid, and we’re looking at doing some Calendar integration. We’re basing a lot of our decisions about future development around what the Syncfusion tools do.
