ITAL Logistics Ltd are a global freight forwarding company that specialise in shipping dangerous goods across both domestically and abroad.
Our team was engaged by ITAL Logistics Ltd to design and develop a bespoke software solution to better manage their expanding freight and logistics business and facilitate future growth.
When they approached us they were using an antiquated Telnet based system that no longer served the organisation’s needs on a number of levels, and after years of trying to adapt the system to their way of working they made the decision to have their own solution developed.
After a month long period of consultation with the client, we drafted a detailed specification to cater for the core requirements outlined above. The system would be web based and built on the widely-adopted Ruby on Rails technology stack, and integrate all aspects of their business into one intuitive user interface.
In addition to the key deliverables above, we also went on to provide the following functionality:
Following on from the initial consultation period, we designed, developed and deployed an integrated Freight Management System that utilises the latest tried and tested web technologies, and that caters for far over and above what the client initially required.
ITAL Logistics now have a system that manages their entire business and allows for future flexibility. They are already exploiting this increase in flexibility and have engaged us on a longer-term basis to manage the implementation of new features and eventually take the product to market.
