Till 1983, EIPW's FA was being processed at the Regional Computer Centre (RCC) Calcutta on a Burroughs-6700 system. All on a sudden RCC's computer broke down and there was no certainty as to when it would be fixed. Even the application software was not available to EIPW. We were called by the CEO and asked to see if we could offer an immediate solution. Never given to running away from tough challenges, we used our analytical skills to reverse engineer the application, developed the software almost overnight and moved it to an 8086-based micro in a week’s time.
Since 2005, the client has moved FA to their in-house system but Payroll, Provident Fund and Cost Audit continue to be outsourced to us.
Engagement period: 1983 onwards
