Logistics software solutions speed up your supply chain

Computer

Logistics means a complex operation demanding detailed coordination. In today’s global market, logistics ranks #1 as the most dynamically growing environment. Why #1? Constant changes. Fierce competition.

How do these constant changes affect you?

You—your company—must keep pace. To survive, companies must quickly and efficiently adapt to constant change. They must provide their clients with instant, seamless, and valuable shipment services.

Companies who rely on the old-fashioned, antiquated, time-consuming manual methods fall behind. Successful companies rely on automated systems.

Logistics software development process

A perfect logistics software solution is the result of detailed work implementing a client’s vision of a smooth-running business.

It takes five steps:

Project discovery

A development team thoroughly analyses project requirements, asks clarifying questions, and offers an implementation path. We discuss terms of cooperation then sign an NDA and a contract.

Software development

The development team divides the entire project into two-week Sprints. The development team simultaneously works on distinct parts of the system. At the end of each Sprint, the client has access to a completed part of product functionality to test and evaluate.

Software launch

After the source code is ready and thoroughly tested, the software goes live—the team deploys it on the production server. When the software is ready to launch, the team publishes the app on the stores, if requested.

Post-launch guarantee

This is an essential part of IT Craft’s logistics software development services. Your team of developers stay to help. They fix any bugs and flaws in the source code that users discover. The guarantee period (from 1 – 3 months) depends on the project size.

Maintenance and expansion

The development team maintains the source code ensuring instant availability to end users. No downtime due to code issues. The team also provides security updates and introduces new, required features.

As a product owner choosing logistics software solutions, you get:

Before, during, and after each Sprint
  • Participation in work planning
  • Access to project manager during working hours to answer any concerns/questions you might have
  • Regular reports on completed work
  • Access to the functional code on the testing server
After project launch
  • Source code deployed on chosen server
  • Detailed project documentation
  • Published in app stores, if requested
  • After-launch-guarantee support

  • 2 What is logistics software?

    Logistics software helps companies organize, run, record, monitor, and manage processes such as material, information, and human flow. Transport and logistics software optimizes costs and makes accurate inventory possible.

    Logistics software solutions can be implemented as:

    • stand-alone desktop software
    • internal solutions accessible from company’s own intranet
    • SaaS solution available globally via Internet connection
  • 3 What are the 3 main activities of logistics systems?

    The three main activities include:

    • Order processing – receiving and managing orders from clients and keeping them updated on their order status. Order processing automation systems substantially decrease order-cycle time.
    • Inventory management – keeping finished products or their components ready for selling, manufacturing, or transportation. Inventory management software keeps supplies as low as you choose before reordering. This decreases your overall costs.
    • Freight transportation – transportation of products and/or components to their destination point consumes two-thirds of total logistics costs. Transport logistics software optimizes transportation costs and improves efficiency of customer service.

    Your customers matter. Constantly keep them in mind during transportation software development. If there are recurring requests or issues, include solutions for them on your list of requirements.

    • Reduce your list of requirements to essential, core features.
    • Design user path or ask for help from experts.
    • Develop source code for your transport logistics software.
    • Launch soon (apply to cross-platform development when possible).
    • Ensure users can easily leave feedback.
    • Improve the app based on user feedback.
