Full-Stack O.M.S

An Internal Application to Help Manage Bosch Orders | TypeScript React Node.js AWS Serverless ERP SQL | 2022


How It Works:
  • The user authenticates with Cognito, and calls API Gateway which triggers the Lambda function to access DynamoDB order details.
  • Customer order details like SKU, order number, and date are relayed to the React front-end. Users can view and update order status on both the client and server sides.
  • The backend was built with Node and it consisted of Lambdas that make regular calls to ERP and update DynamoDB whenever an order status changes.
