MESH is a job estimating system for an iron foundry.

When Digressoft was approached for this job, the client already had many hundreds of job estimations each one in its own Excel spreadsheet.  These were quite complex spreadsheets containing over two hundreds cells to reach a bottom line for the job.

They were happy to keep the spreadsheets for the actual estimation but were having real problems browsing and maintaining the hundreds of files.

Digressoft built an MS Access application which harvested pertinent information from each spreadsheet and presented a summary list of all the jobs.  The list could easily be sorted and filtered and a simple double-click would open the spreadsheet  containing the actual detailed estimate.  The application also provided other buttons for easy maintenance of estimations allowing the sales staff to open, create new, copy existing, print and delete jobs without having to go near Windows Explorer.
