100% automization on sales, eCommerce for stall booking & conference registration
One of the largest stainless steel expos in the world, was held in the grand city of Ahmedabad in early 2015. Organized and held together by the core, the Indian Stainless Steel Development Organization (ISDO), Indinox serves as a common platform for a discussion on the overall progress and the future of the stainless steel industry. With over thousands of exhibitors, Indinox 2015 had a vision to open innumerable opportunities for global stainless steel manufacturers, businessmen and consumers to grow and expand through B2B global investment opportunities and innovatory business development.
Considering the enormity of the four day event itself, it was important for Indinox to realize its vision and make it a success. Although, the number of participants was large, unfortunately it lacked a central database system for tracking and record keeping, and all of their communications were scattered/unorganized. All the transactions were being carried out using traditional manual methods, with no IT backbone at all. This led to ineffective methods of information management; increased the scope of human error and overall presented a very ineffective system of conducting a large scale event.

ISDO saw a technical ally in iView Labs. Considering the time, budget constraints and the development of a completely new way of functioning, our solution was simple and cost effective. Automation of the entire system right from the user end to enable better communication between vendors and clients- all using an online platform. Our in-depth analysis with the key members of the organization, increased surveys and a technical solution check from our internal IT team led us to creating a lean system and a reduced infrastructure costs.
