Context

After carrying out the maritime transport of raw materials, International Materiales Inc (IMI) stores them in different “stockpiles” from where they are laterĀ  withdrawn by third party companies. These companies are the ones assigned to transport materials to their final destination (customer).

Management of this operation was done manually which generated a large operational workload which in turn led to errors and administrative deviations in billing.

Strategy

We developed a multiplatform application using React Native plus a web Content Management System from where all transactions could be supervised.

Drivers can record each task that is carried out while loading and transporting the goods. All of that information becomes available online to IMI through a Dashboard that allows them to carry out audits and have all the information synchronized in real time.

Achieved Milestones

  • Elimination of transcription errors and billing delays.
  • Improvement in traceability of goods.
  • Administrative burden reduction.
  • Greater customer satisfaction.
