As our partner deals with large volumes of goods and uses a large list of tools for managing their supply line, organizing merchandise transportation was a time-consuming process. Possible errors and inefficiencies in their way of working also led to delays and increased freight costs.
We designed and developed a user-friendly cloud-based application for transportation planning and management that automates many manual processes that were previously handled by employees. The software also provides real-time data and analytics, offering our partner more insights and control over the whole process.
The delivered software is estimated to save approximately 700,000€ in freight costs as well as 800 work hours per year thanks to automated processes. The application also acts as a springboard for further integrations with the partner’s IT ecosystem, ensuring scalability and efficiency as the company grows.
After thoroughly understanding our partner’s current IT landscape, architecture, and business needs, we applied an agile development model to create the product. The primary objective of the application is to simplify transport management so that the company can plan more cost-effective routes and track their shipments.
Additionally, we focused on creating a scalable solution that can then be integrated with third-party software. As such, the transportation software can then connect with procurement and ordering systems to achieve greater levels of automation and control.
We focused on creating an enhanced user experience compared to the previous way of working and extensively researched the end users and their pain points. The application’s interface was carefully designed to make it easy to use while also providing all the relevant information to plan efficiently.
As the partner has many locations in several countries, the system needed to process large quantities of data and offer the same level of quality and functionality to employees across Europe. Through rigorous testing and feedback sessions with end users, we made sure that the application not only integrates into the partner’s existing IT infrastructure but that it meets an acceptable standard in load time.
