With extensive and easy-to-use functions for road transportation, sea- and air- freight, intermodal transport and public warehousing, Navitrans is the most out-of-the-box logistic software in the market today. It consists of 3 main modules: Navitrans Transport, Navitrans Forwarding and Navitrans Warehousing. The three modules are designed to work independently, however, they seamlessly integrate as well.
The client had a vision of developing a transport module (drivers as the end users) for the Navision system. The key idea was to have something that would help the drivers plan their work/tasks and distribute those tasks for the general audience of the drivers.
What We Did
Navitrans had a pretty clear idea of what they needed, however, the initial list of the functionality was broader than the actual project required. We’ve approached it with a series of workshops with the client, collection of requirements, their additional analysis, wireframing, prioritization and agreement regarding the actual solution. To ensure full transparency, an agile approach was used.
The main elements of our work included the integration and data synchronization with Navision as well as the development of the pivotal software solutions such as task manager (the task goes from the Navision system to the driver app, the driver completes it, marks the status, the information goes back to Navision, who uses this information for generationing the invoices).
Further development is based on the needs identified by the client and feedback from the end users.
We’ve created and to this day maintain their mobile app which is used by the drivers. It enables efficient control of the activities on the road (such as task management, access to shipment and logistics) and connects businesses with customers and other stakeholders in the supply chain. We’ve also built the gateway back-end, which connects the driver's application with the central Navitrans system.
