Requirement Study & Implementation

When they approached us, the first aspect their operations team enquired about was that they could automate all their processes. Most of the operational data were either handled by MS Excel or on physical paper.  As part of its future vision, the company was in search of a software solution that could help them grow as an organization and take it to the next level. They requested our team to do a detailed system study and gap analysis at their office in Zambia. Ripples-FMS team members traveled to Zambia, spent a few days with their team, and submitted a detailed report on where our logistics software could save time and money in their operations.

We also had detailed discussions with Sun Line’s top management and finally, the project was given a go-ahead signal last month. The Customer service portal of the freight management project was divided into many phases and the initial phase comprised an “operations module”. A few of our implementation engineers were deployed at the client’s place and the project went live on 30th September 2019 as scheduled. The client was also happy that we were able to execute ERP installation and make the logistics software solution live in a span of one week!!!.
