Yozu was engaged by ITAL Logistics to design and develop a bespoke software solution to better manage their expanding freight and logistics business and facilitate future growth.
When they approached Yozu 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 new way of working they made the decision to invest in their long-term future in a bespoke solution.
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, integrating all aspects of their business into one intuitive user interface.
In addition to the challenges and requirements, we also went on to provide the following additional 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.
