Web Server Apache

Application Description:
The Client Requisition System provides pre-PO encumbering functionality. Users can enter a requisition which reserves (but does not encumber) a certain budget amount towards the purchase of goods or services. Each requisition, based on settings assigned to its originator, is routed through a list of reviewers/approvers.

Each reviewer/approver sees the requisition after other reviewers lower in the approval list have approved the requisition. If all reviewers approve the requisition, a purchase order will be generated into the Client Budgetary Accounting System and the funds will be encumbered. This review and approval process was a 5250 “green screen”-based process.

The project involved extending the Client Requisition System to provide a web-based interface to the requisition approval/rejection process including maintenance functions.

Approvers can change a requisition, remove its status, approve all pending requisitions, view requisitions based on their status. All this functionality was provided through the web-based interface.

The Web-based system has following capabilities.

We developed all modules of the Requisition Approval Process, which involved Application software Design, Database Design, GUI Design, User Interface Development, Web Based User Interface Design, Backend Development and implementation.
