In one case, Cherniak was called in to design a system that would
tie together six different 'islands of information' so that all
reporting could be done from a single system thus saving the
efforts of 40 people who were manually transferring data among
the different systems.
Cherniak has provided effective interfaces to help clients in
many other cases, e.g. to interface with retail point-of-sale

Long before EDI became a buzzword, Cherniak was helping clients
communicate directly and electronically with the various organizations
with which they did business, thus improving the business process

In one case, Cherniak not only made the appropriate interfaces

a central database for all daughter companies to access to determine
if there was product immediately available for a given customer
(perhaps from a sister company), and thus make sales that could
not have been made had there been the normal multi-week delay
to fabricate the goods.
