If you're in the tire industry or in the transportation industry and need specialized tire applications Budini Incorporated can help you achieve your goal faster, cheaper and with a degree of understanding and reliability that no other company can. That is because we have spent the last 27 years developing tire management solutions for every part of the supply chain of tires. We're not authorized to demonstrate applications that were specifically designed for another company, but we can generally describe what kind of customizations were made so you can imagine the possibilities of a custom solution.
One of our customers wanted to measure tires in over 70 points, and export that information to their own excel spreadsheet for their Research and Development department. Their current method was to use paper forms, do the inspections manually and then type in the information in the Excel spreadsheets. Budini modified our Budini Survey PDA application designed for electronic data collection. The tire data with all of the tread depth readings was than able to be collected using electronic tools and sensors and exported into a text file. Another custom application designed by Budini placed the data in the exact locations of the excel spreadsheet they used. This solution provided more accuracy in the data collection, faster inspection time, and eliminated the data entry portion. All this without loosing any information that would still be processed in our standard Budini systems, permitting additional conclusions about the products being researched. For another customer we also performed a modification of the Budini Survey PDA program. They were interested in having 12 measurements per tire and their own visual conditions downloaded to the hand-held tool. Each condition is linked to a different description of frequency and severity. The applications allowed them to specify the frequency and severity per rib in the tire. The data collection was done all electronically, and an excel file was populated according to their exact specifications in their own language. All this without loosing any information that would still be processed in our standard Budini systems, permitting additional conclusions about the products being researched. These modifications were much quicker than developing a solution from scratch, provided more information than originally anticipated and resulted in a much lower cost of development.
Our most common area of customized development are for fleets. Budini recognizes that every fleet is unique in the way they operate their business. Some rely on complete fleet management systems to manage the financial, operational, human resources, maintenance and other departments. But when it comes to tires they prefer the Budini Tire Management System due to the reliability and amount of information that it provides. Nevertheless they sometimes require data to be exported from the Budini TMS to their other systems. This data varies in categories depending on the fleet, but includes tire accounting data, mileage data, tire transactions data, performance data and financial data. No problem! if the data is there we can export it for you. Other times fleets want a specific report, already used by their business for many years and they would like to have that report printed out of a Budini TMS system. No problem! If the data is there, we can create the report for you! The least common, but not uncommon type of integration is when our customer wants to integrate portions of the Budini Tire Management System with their SAP system or other main ERP system. In these cases specific DLLs or executables are created so that certain functions of the program would initiate communication from one system to another, and receive information back. This is the most complicated type of integration; when two different systems are working real-time and exchanging information. Many compatibility requirements that must be met by both systems for this to occur successfully.
The Budini Tire Survey Web System is the most popular system for tire dealers. In this system most of the customizations can be done internally by the system user. From time to time we have a request of a specific report format. No problem.
