What is the solution you are building and how is it addressing the problem?

We implemented various addons for Microsoft Dynamics. We have several addons for integrating data amongst several stakeholders. We proposed to one of our clients in the automotive industry that they should perform a proof of concept solution based on blockchain technology. We proposed sharing data about their maintenance services that are part of their portfolio as the easiest and the most beneficial use case. We would like to bring their electronic service books for vehicles (that are already implemented) on the blockchain. Their customers want proof what spare parts were used in maintenance and if they are new parts (not used ones). We plan to provide basic data about vendors for those spare parts, and when they were used. Also, we plan to build a B2B partner portal that will enable online access to data. We can also provide customers with a QR code on their service cards and reports, where they can scan it and see relevant data on that portal.

Describe how the OriginTrail protocol fits in with your solution architecture?

OriginTrail would act as third party neutral storage with API access to important customers (persons and customers). We also see it as an interoperability layer between stakeholders of the solution. We want to bring trust among stakeholders. We want to build a portal on top of OriginTrail as a middle layer instead of ERP system.

What are your relevant previous achievements?

Describe your previous experience with the OriginTrail protocol.

We have been following the project for a while, and the open call is great opportunity to get included.

Describe the problem you are solving.

We are working on the development of several modules for ERP systems. We have stumbled upon numerous challenges regarding trusting data and the integration of several connected business partners (headquarters and sister companies). We have resolved these issues with the use of a centralized database and simple EDI procedures. Our current clients are looking for innovative solutions that will bring benefits and advantage over competitors. We are also exploring how to be more flexible and the OriginTrail protocol seams like a good fit.

How do you plan to scale your idea?

We want to learn how to implement blockchain-based solutions into our modules. Once we do that, we will provide new services to our existing partners. Also, we can scale with new clients that are interested in using our existing modules with a new blockchain component.

Why should OriginTrail and our community choose your idea amongst others?

We have an existing product and excellent relationships with clients. They are very interested in performing upgrades to the system and they trust our expertise. We hope to be pioneers in the application of the blockchain in ERP solutions.
