Project overview

The platform is among the number of software solutions for the logistics industry undertaken by Artelogic. It is a SaaS model developed in order to enable our client to deliver a tool for movers, agents, and van lines and to facilitate the relationships between them within an end-to-end solution.

It’s a cloud-based service for managing household moves including transportation, loading, unloading, packing, and unpacking. The software is licensed by brokers on a subscription basis. The features implemented for our client cover all business operations of the logistics companies.

Challenge

Like many businesses with integrated full-cycle services, the logistic field needs to provide reactive and scheduled facilities management services to its clients. The nature of their business demands a reliable, effective, and fast system that can manage their processes. The challenge for our team was to develop an integrated system, which could cover all these needs and join all business participants with one end-to-end platform in an elegant seamless way.

The system, which joins all business participants with one end-to-end platform in a seamless way.

Solution

Following a number of strategic analysis sessions, we were able to highlight the key areas of the business. As a result, we have developed a wireframe design and specification, which our proposed solution reflects.
