Through our partnership with the leading Edmonton-based construction company TCA Developments, we built a proprietary inventory app with remarkable results.
Reduction in property theft
TCA Developments is a prominent Canadian General Contractor headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta. Alchemized Software was hired to design, develop, and maintain a proprietary inventory application. The project's desired outcome was to curb a rash of tool thefts plaguing the company.
Result: To date, the client has reported an 81% reduction in property loss three months after launching the product. If this trend continues, they stand to save thousands of dollars in inventory over the coming year.

The scope of work:
Based on the criteria outlined above, we needed to create a fast and flexible application that provided an effective means for monitoring the client's inventory.
Alchemized Software completed the development of the inventory application after roughly 12 weeks. We spent the final week drafting an onboarding process with the project's stakeholders to facilitate a successful launch.
During a routine test run, we caught and addressed an edge-case bug in the password reset flow. This event highlights why we invest heavily in our QA process. Fostering a culture of rigorous attention to detail ensures that there are no surprises on launch day!
Now, three months after releasing the product, the client has reported an 81% reduction in property loss. If this trend continues, they stand to save thousands of dollars in inventory over the coming year.
