Blink required a modern vehicle transportation booking and monitoring system for their clients.
We developed a cross-platform mobile application which allows Blink customers to create a new booking from any device. It also monitors which jobs are coming into and going out from their location. This adds significant benefits over the previous web based booking forms, as booking and monitoring functionality can now be accessed quickly and easily from anywhere at any time.
Benefits and features
The mobile app contains additional validation including scanning and checking of the vehicle registration details. A ‘charge receiver’ option has been added to allow automatic charging of the recipient, validated by company name.
The mobile app passes data seamlessly and in real time from the central booking and dispatch system, meaning no synchronisation issues.
We created a hybrid mobile application which is suitable for both Android and iOS devices. The end user can create bookings, and monitor movements, helps to stay connected from anywhere without needing to go back to the office, saving time.
The Mobile application was developed using cross-platform technologies.
Hybrid Kendo UI used as UI framework along with Symfony Framework to build Web Services to read the data from PostgreSQL database.
Apache Cordova used to extend an application across more than one platform, without having to re-implement it with each platform’s language and toolset.
They are efficient and professional and have been incredibly flexible and easy to work with, allowing us to work in and help develop our own system that suits our own needs.
The result of this system have seen us recognised as having the best transportation system in our field by some of our major clients. Regular clients who used to book over the phone creating a bottleneck of ringing phones now enjoy the freedom of web portal booking with additional key features, such as live tracking, report access and online rate and quoting.
