We developed a fleet management solution for a Saudi Arabia based logistics company. This is a complete solution for all the activities in a supply chain of logistics.
The driver uses an Android app that informs him about new trip requests that he can accept or reject. He also gets reminders and details about upcoming scheduled trips. The company admin can make requests for shipping while the super admin manages all the registered companies and vehicles.
Our Client and His
Our client is from Saudi Arabia and owns a transport/ logistics management company. He used to carry out his business activities using outdated systems like excel sheets and paperwork.
He realized that it was time to switch to better options. He approached us with a clear idea- digitize his business completely. He wanted a solution that could replace his old systems and make his activities smoother.
Solution We Provided
We developed a completed solution that automated his business activities from shipping to warehouse management. We basically shifted his business to a digital platform. This fleet management solution has 3 components: Driver’s App, Company Admin, and Super Admin.
Driver’s app: We developed an Android app for the drivers. This app sends new trip requests along with all the details to the drivers. The drivers have the option to accept and reject them based on their availability.
Company Admin: This component is for registered companies. These companies can make shipping requests by adding pickup- drop off, route, and goods details.
Super Admin: This component is for the client. Using the super admin, you can manage registered companies, drivers, shipments, and shipping trips.

Features We Integrated Into this
Enterprise Fleet Management Software
Android App Development
We assigned one of our senior app developers with 4+ years of experience in Android app development for this project. The developer researched and studied Google Map integration for showing the Map in the app and Google location service integration to get and show the exact location of particular goods of the particular trip.
He began his work after understanding the concept and designed the navigation flow for the app. After getting positive feedback from the client, he started working on the development. He integrated socket SDK for sending and receiving location updates to the admin panel of the fleet management software. We also carried out testing simultaneously. In fact, the developer also tested the app in the live scenarios at our development center in Ahmedabad, India.
The developer did not face any major challenges during the course of development as he had already worked on similar projects. He resolved any queries by discussing it with the project manager and client. The development was completed within just 2 months even with so many requirements and functionalities.
Android App Technology
Web Backend Development
We assigned this enterprise fleet management project to one of our senior web developers with 6+ years of experience in the web development field. His first step was to carry out research about how to save Google route and rendering it in the mobile application in order to save Google route API charges. This saved our client's total cost along with enhancing app functionality.
The web developer then began with creating the database (MySQL), vehicle, driver and trip module, and finally creating functionality for the best route on Google Map and implementing real-time live tracking of fleet vehicles. He used Nodejs and socket.io for implementing live tracking and the Google route for fetching the best route for fuel management.
The only challenge he faced was creating offline routes when the vehicle device app is not in use. He solved it by creating a route from last and next point after some trial and error. The entire web backend for this enterprise fleet management took 390 hours to develop which was within the time frame given by the client.
Web Backend Technology
Within just 2 months of time, we were able to create an enterprise fleet management software. Our created solution optimized all the business operations of our client. Here are some of the results that our developed software produced:
Automated Business Processes
Eased up GPS Fleet Tracking
Enhanced Monitoring of Fleet Performance
Increased Fuel Efficiency
Improved Vehicle Health
