Process: We Proceed Professionally
We developed three profile on behalf of the company, user and branch. Segregation of profile based on specific role eased the access to data. Addition of the feature to notify about any unclaimed containers that can be located after being processed. Upon integration, the app became ready to weigh the container on ground or truck both in a fast and secure manner. We implemented our expertise in Xamarin, the cutting edge technology for cross-platform mobile apps development to enable features for capturing, storing and transferring data onto the online portal. Development of portal on .NET MVC for easy access to get information about when, who and where was the cargo weighed. It also provides details about cargo destination and its landside origin.
We developed a cross-platform mobile app that avoided the hassle of manual involvement in weighing the cargo containers thereby reducing any room for error as well as made the process fast and efficient.
