Case Challange

CHALLENGE

02

Providing an exceptional service in Electronic Vehicle Condition Reports Jack Cooper reached a point where the established methods and approaches were no longer able to serve the business well. A company faced with a challenge. They would probably be in for it sooner or later without updating a system. The technical difficulties were connected with adding new clients into their operation databases and then serving them. This process could last up to 2 years. The challenge was about a processing all the data while inspecting a car. Since each new car brand has its specific requirements and key figures, the system was at risk to become unmanageable. At the same time, one more peculiarity refers to the specific of car inspection. Specialists, performing it, need mobility and accessibility to do their work in the field.

 

Our team has in focus a task to streamline all operational and work processes within one system, which has to be flexible, synchronic and mobile.

We have achieved a synchronized system allowing to manage the car inspection in a seamless manner.

SOLUTION

03

We have started the project with a project kick-off to define everything that was needed before the first sprint started. The development for a Jack Cooper project was based on the strong analysis of business needs and internal operations. So our aim was to deliver a solution that would make it possible to provide speedy and qualitive services in the field of vehicle inspection. Flexibility was needed to adjust the system for the specific client's requirements, such as adding new car characteristic for a new customer, etc. It has to be mobile in order to allow inspectors to do their work in fields.  

 

Synchronization has to be achieved in several directions:

 

  • Synchronization between mobile application & a server. So wizard could be updated according to the latest edits.
  • Synchronization of a database of a car related information with a system in a case of its renewal;
  • Interconnection between wizard and a car VIN code. So the system could load only related information to the particular car model.

 

As an outcome, the developed software product consists of the following functional parts:

 

  • An admin control panel for system adjustments;
  • A staff control panel for assigning inspectors to inspections, inspections review;
  • A customer profile, which is used for vehicles inspection overview and export of results;
  • A provider profile, which partially duplicates a mobile solution and is used for viewing assigned inspections, doing inspections via web interface;
  • Mobile solutions for iOS and Android for inspectors in the field. It allows inspectors to add arrival records, review assigned inspection, perform inspection, take vehicle photos, push data to a server. In the background mobile app syncs data from server, meaning update order statuses, vehicle-related information (parts, damage types, etc);
  • Web services. It includes a mobile application web service for data synchronization between a server and mobile solution and a web service to synchronize data between the new and old solutions. Hence we have obtained a flexibility in customizing a mobile wizard.  This means that the system administrator can dynamically form a list of fields / questions which have to be filled in, etc.

Boruch A.
Serial entrepreneur in logistics and transportation industry, USA

I do business with Artelogic team since 2009. We have developed multiple enterprise systems for various verticals. Some of those we sold for over million dollars. The workflow with them is much more stable and there are processes in place in order to ensure that everyone is doing what they’re supposed to do. Everything is being tracked.

The project launched successfully ahead of schedule in part thanks to clear project management. Key stakeholders volunteered positive feedback. 

Craig E.
CEO, Legal documents and rental management solutions, USA

 

I have been working with the team at Artelogic for over 5 years now and can only say that they are the most professional, capable, reliable and friendly providers I have ever worked with, and I have worked with a lot. If Artelogic’s team doesn’t know how to do something, they’ll find out and come back with a functional solution.

Michael C.
Entrepreneur in Mental Health Sector, UK

When I was trying to do something that was perhaps not the best solution, rather than just implement it anyway, they Artelogic would say, '...We think this might work better.'

Kenn P.
CEO, Software Consulting Firm, USA

The main thing for working with me is I’m pretty intense on the communication side of things. They had a flexibility and willingness to adapt their processes to match my requirements both on communication and the development processes. I never had a problem with any of their code from a code quality perspective. They clearly do a good job internally with code quality assurance as well. We had very minimal issues during user acceptance testing. We never had a quality issue with them. Most importantly they took personal ownership of any problems which arose, including resolution of issues off hours or over weekends in order to mediate any issues that did happen.

 

Pei Shan W.
Business Owner in Beauty Industry and Investment Professional, Singapore

Artelogic has been brilliant in the service delivery. I truly enjoyed the working experience. Many times, they were able to fix the issues with utmost professionalism and reliable speed. The communication on the specific work scope was great as they are able to value add by offering practical solutions or prompt to think about areas which are of blind sight.
