Systainet (GSCS, Inc.)
The founders of GSCS, Inc., Ed Odette and Marshall Bush, came to Bryte Software because they had a vision of a small business that could compete in the supply chain management industry.
After long discussions, Systainet was born. It was a supply chain management system which originally offered visibility of life cycle information for parts, which I built in ASP.NET/MSSQL.
Over time, however, it became clear that it could offer much more. Working together to figure out how to use this monster we'd created, we eventually built it out into a cloud-based material requirements planning (MRP) application, sort of a tiny version of SAP except web-accessible.
It's an extremely powerful system that allows companies to enter their own parts requirements and then to get immediate visibility of their supply chain shortages and concerns. Will they have enough parts on hand in August to build the anticipated number of units? Will prior builds of other devices interfere with that schedule and availability? Are there life cycle threats or other availability concerns? Can an economy of scale be leveraged across many builds while maintaining Just-In-Time inventory levels?
Those are critical questions in manufacturing, and our ability to answer them allowed GSCS to grow from the two founders to over 20 employees.
Working with Ed and Marshall helped me better understand the true potential of technology, and I'm glad to have played a role in helping them succeed.

Because Systainet is such a complex application, screenshots of it in action require a considerable amount of preparation. Please be patient, or contact me to let me know you're curious.
