Industrial Container Disposal Giant

 

THE BOTTOM LINE

Our partner is an industry behemoth in the niche field of environmental container disposal. They are professionals in specialized areas such as hazardous waste disposal, recycling of plastic and steel containers, and related operations.

On a daily basis, they receive huge shipments of varied material, process them within their premises, and send them out to locations all over the country.

THE PREDICAMENT

Although considered among the best at what they do, they were beset by a major irritant.

Managing logistics of the entry and exit of these shipments had long been a bane - it had been preventing them from achieving their optimal output, to much frustration all around. This is when fate conspired to get us in contact with them.

COMETH THE HOUR...

We developed a full solution for the operations our client. It enables over the network, real-time booking and tracking of shipments and deliveries. Enables paperless, pure software solutions for tracking goods delivery, damage inspection, signing etc via hand held devices.

It also enables an Outlook like scheduling purely from the browser.

EPILOGUE and SEQUEL

Since the new application has been released, managing schedules on the go on multiple devices has become easy. It is a piece of cake tracking shipments, faults, and accessing detailed reports. Our partners can now focus on optimizing their operations elsewhere.
