After an intense competition, Sarah was awarded the First Runner-up, at a ceremony held on 22 March 2016.
The individual project title of Sarah is “An Intelligent Cloud-based Mobile CRM Framework for Stock Replenishment”, which was supervised by Ir. Dr. KL Choy (academic supervisor) and Mr. Eddy Yiu (industrial supervisor). It is a jointly supervised industrial-based student project between PolyU ISE and the Bedford Technologies Limited.
The student project provides innovative insights on building a mobile app for managing customer relationship management (CRM) and stock replenishment which is a hit in managing modern web-based business operations. The proposed model aims at enhancing effective communication between customers, staff and retailers in order to analyze customer behavior effectively while the number of times in out-of-stock is reduced significantly.
The competition is open to young HKIE engineers under the age of 25 and full time students of accredited Logistics or Transportation Engineering Degree Programs in Hong Kong.
