Challenge

In partnership with their Distillery team, our client was looking to build a crucial application for the logistics area of the company that could be used for delivery personnel to understand what products to load in the trucks, which stores to visit in what order, and much more. The goal was to create an application that could not only support this work for delivery efficiencies, but also to begin capturing information to create reporting that would serve to feed future business decisions.
