Ann Consulting Pte Ltd
We are programmers, who build simple solutions for complex business operations. Our work changes enterprise workflow. We believe the world can become a better place, by creating quality software solutions that influence everyone.
Ann Consulting is everything you need to run a parcel locker network or any kind of electronic locker systems. Our software works with all locker-body manufacturers so our clients are not tied to a particular manufacturer. A typical scenario is we provide the entire solution (locker-body & software). However our clients have the option to use their preferred (or existing) locker-body and other locker-body they would purchase in the future.
Providing robust server infrastructure is our main approach to maintaining relationship with our clients. We run our own server rack in a Tier-3 data center at 1-NET Singapore connected to multi-homing Internet with 2 upstream from SingTel and StarHub. A server-grade firewall is connected to our production server and we have a live redundant secondary physical server with similar capacity on standby at any point of time.
Our Backup Schedule
There are 3 sets of 7-day database backup at any point of time.
(1) Daily database backup to a TAPE in same physical server with 7 days of physical copies
(2) Daily duplicate to a hard-disk on another physical server on a different subnet
(3) Daily duplicate to a hard-disk on an offsite server
2017 - The Specialist
Riding on accumulated experience of software development for different industries over the years, Ann Consulting now specialises in three areas; parcel locker, enterprise mobile app and A2P SMS.
2012 - The Breakthrough
Our web server solutions are implemented on some of the largest enterprises in the world and we started early stage mobile application research and development. Our A2P SMS volume hits 1 million per month and grew to 5 million in 2015.
2008 - Doing Our Things
This was our busiest era. We worked through days and nights to create software solutions that change enterprise workflow. At the same time, our A2P SMS volume grew towards 200,000 per month.
2003 - The Beginning
We started sending A2P SMS for our first client via an in-house developed web application. Users upload mobile numbers to the web portal via Microsoft Excel Add-Ins.
