Client is an asset based motor carrier headquartered in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada and has around 24 locations within US & Canada, with a business of over 25,000 shipments a month.

Problem statement

Client had an existing standalone system with various disjoint operations including a document management to handle the logistics.

The core challenge was client had to do a manual update to each of the individual systems for every upgrade resulting in huge cost and time.

To do away with platform dependent desktop based application.

To switch from legacy document management system to an advanced new age document management system.

To automate the invoice processing.

PROPOSED SOLUTION

  • TechAffinity developed a platform independent web based application on .NET Platform where user can scan and view the documents on the web application using a third party SDK from Dynamsoft.
  • The proposed solution had a central data repository that is designed as per the industry best practices.
  • TechAffinity used parsing technology to automate the invoicing process where users can send the forms and PARS (Pre-Arrival Review System) clearance forms over email and/or fax to end user.
  • TechAffinity developed more than 20+ schedulers to automate the business processes, thus shortening the time taken for completion of the processes.

Custom entity frame work with n-tier architecture was implemented to realize the following benefits

Multi-level layers to access Data model.

Better Performance, maintenance and reusability

Process customization using the schedulers and SQL job schedulers.

Uses the power of jqGrid to present the records in simple and user friendly manner.
