About the Client
The client is a logistics company from the USA. They turned to us to get an online solution that would allow them to reduce cost of fuel for their trucks, namely, by allowing drivers to choose the best refueling, taking into account fuel prices, the current position of the truck, and the available fuel in the tank.
All data and names are fictitious, because we signed an NDA with the client.
Challenges and Goals
Such a system was supposed to act as the primary integration for our future solution. As a result, we settled on Barchart.
We also had to implement integration with services such as Samsara and Roadstart to transfer the current location of the driver to our application, as well as data on the remaining fuel in the tank and its consumption, so that the app could accurately calculate which gas station the driver would be able to get to.
We decided that the most priority task for our client and for us was the launch of MVP. In the future, we agreed on the refinement of this minimum viable product by enriching it with a number of new features that will turn it into a full-fledged app.
The Current Stage of Development
At the moment, our development company is in the process of working on the project.
UPD: We have supplemented MVP with analytics that will help you save money by offering gas stations with the lowest fuel prices. And already in the first quarter of operation, users managed to reduce costs by 17% due to the lowest fuel prices.
In the long term, we will enrich the solution with features that will turn it into a full-fledged app for managing all the company's internal processes: displaying drivers in real time, exchanging routes between the mobile application and the admin panel, as well as accessing the service for other companies and drivers.
