A leading supplier of Butane, Propane, CNG, and LNG gas with a network of more than 1200 sales points across the country was looking to optimize its supply chain network and gain more control over stock levels. The European client was seeking a mobile-first gas cylinder management application to monitor the movement of cylinders and vehicles between the plant & refilling depot efficiently.
The developed gas cylinder tracking system helped control the end-to-end process of gas supply digitally, from picking up the order to delivery and returning to the plant, for which a manual assignment was in place previously.
Enables drivers to address and take up multiple bookings at once, finish picking the order, and close the requests – all with just a few taps
Facilitates trailer scanning for empty and full cages with an estimated net & gross weight based on cylinder type and capacity
Helps manage the lifecycle of the cylinder (order fulfillment) – filling, processing at depot, delivery, and receiving the empty cylinder
Allows drivers to select the route, update the delivery schedule, and map their progress
The mobile application for gas cylinder distribution was developed using Xamarin. It acted as a single source of truth for: 1) Managing & monitoring gas cylinder delivery; 2)Real-time tracking of inventory utilization, vehicle usage & driver efficiency
The agency/admin module helped track delivery efficiency, map inventory & automate delivery schedules. This granular level visibility enabled optimum delivery management of assets while accelerating turnaround time with optimization delivery routes.
We utilize Angular to deliver a seamless user experience with easy navigation for the drivers and agency users. Following the best practices of material design, we ensured intuitive & interactive interfaces across devices for smooth, swift, and efficient usage of the application.
Our team enabled Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacon tracking for assets (cylinders) to monitor their movement – from warehouse to final delivery. The beacon transmits a unique digital identifier which is scanned by the mobile app for easy tracking & counting of cages carrying the cylinders. This 360-degree visibility with geo-location tracking helps optimize process control & avoid the loss of cylinders.
We developed a drive module interface that allowed drivers to view & accept dispatch schedules, and update on successful deliveries & cancellations.
