Development Process

Our Transportation Management System Development Process

Apart from classic SDLC, we pay close attention to every detail surrounding transportation management system development. We will include every custom feature, catering to your business’s convenience on the way.

01.

01. Advisory

To deliver a TMS (transportation management system) that will strike all the goals for your business, we schedule a set of calls with your team and our project and account managers. Together, we elicit the system’s functional and non-functional requirements, define the tech stack, agree on a collaboration model and team composition, and discuss estimates and deliverables.

02.

02. UI/UX Design

Before writing code, we put your transportation management systems software into design. Having conducted thorough UX research and leaning on user personas, we deliver wireframes, gradually working them out into a self-sufficient UI.

03.

03. Development

This is when we develop an actual system. We write the TMS code, creating architecture and setting up back-end: this involves creating the software components, implementing algorithms for route optimization, load planning, and other core features. We integrate it with other systems, and eventually connect the front-end to the solution’s UI/UX.

04.

04. Testing

Before deployment, we conduct a range of tests: this includes unit testing to ensure each TMS’s component works correctly, integration testing to check whether these components work together as intended, and user acceptance testing (UAT) to make sure the system is easy to navigate.

05.

05. Deployment

Finally, we deploy the TMS on the designated hardware or cloud infrastructure, migrating existing data if needed. We launch the TMS for live operations, ensuring all systems are functioning correctly.

06.

06. Support & Maintenance

After deployment, our team stays in touch to provide regular software updates, bug fixing, or scale the system at your request.

Benefits

Benefits of Custom Transportation Management System

There are a number of indicators you can improve with the help of advanced transportation management systems. See what pains you will resolve and the criteria you’ll now be able to enhance.

  • Tackle Inefficient Routing

    Manual route planning has a danger of suboptimal transportation routes, which lose you money with increased fuel costs and delay results with longer delivery times. Avert this easily by leveraging the advantages of transportation management system: you will optimize routes, reducing mileage and fuel consumption.
