Vehicle Inspection Mobile App For Logistics Management [CASE STUDY]
14 Mar. 2016 Case Studies
Meeting customer demands and on-time delivery are the top most priorities for logistics managers. We developed an automated vehicle inspection mobile app to streamline inspection process and deliver faster services to customers. Automating the delivery inspection process and making it paper-free would not only make the process more effective and quicker but also convenient for customers. The vehicle inspection app was built using Xamarin cross platform technology.
Automotive transportation and logistics management organizations often face issues in delivering vehicles to their customers in mint condition. A survey conducted with 60+ international supply chain executives from the logistics and manufacturing industry found that “meeting customer expectations” followed by “on-time delivery” were the top priorities for logistics managers. This clearly highlights that logistics customers demand flexibility and visibility for car delivery. To address the demand, car inspection processes are setup to offer defect-free delivery. At present, the inspection process in the car industry is carried out manually using paper based inspection. Due to this, the process is time consuming and vulnerable to the possibility of human errors. The inspection process once completed needs to be manually entered into the back-end ERP system for analysis. Our client wanted to automate the inspection process and shorten the delivery cycle time to match the customer expectations.
