ATPS Cargo Transport Solution
To increase Total Logistics productivity, a new system for transfer requests was developed with more functionality and flexibility.
Our client, Total Logistics, needed a solution for cargo transfer requests. Until this day, the company received requests for transfers through their website, which lacked functionality. To increase productivity, a new system for transfer requests was developed with more functionality and flexibility.
After analyzing the current situation, we decided to use WPF framework with MVVM design pattern. We chose Agile project development method, because it fit our situation perfectly. Project development was tracked using Pivotal Tracker web site.
After system was deployed users were able to perform these tasks:
Create new equipment offers.
Perform automated load search.
Perform simple load search.
Turn sound on or off.
Call clients without performing any action.
Edit/Delete/Clone equipment offers and searches.
Check if the port is open.
View map with the shortest route.
Change individual equipment, auto calling and auto search settings.
Add company into black list and edit the list.
While the system was in development state, we discovered the main benefits of WPF framework and MVVM design pattern. We learned how to adjust the framework to fulfill client’s needs and everchanging requirements.
System would be useful for all users that benefits from individual cargo transferring in USA, but since this system is not publicly available only customer‘s company will be using it.
