The Challenge

Supply Vision and FindMyFreight partnered to deliver an all-in-one solution for tracking shipments on multiple carriers through their existing customer portal.

The client required a cloud solution for logistic enterprises. The project is a technological migration, UI, and process redesign in order to improve user experience and business process. Additionally, with the new design, this app can be used on a mobile device thanks to its responsive features.

The Solution

The team follows a scrum-based Agile software development, that includes constant communication between team members. In this specific project, the business team decides the goal for every new release. Each release includes certain characteristics and functionality, defining the scope and tasks for the sprint.

Development process:

  • Sprint planning

  • Daily stand up meetings to coordinate daily goals, and solve roadblocks

  • Daily Deployment to DEV and QA for constant feed from our QA test and business teams

  • Sprint retrospective

  • Any channel of communication is open to anyone
