Transportation & LogisticsIndustry
The company was established as a Transportation management solution. As an organization, Shyftbase had brought seamlessness in their operations with a super-efficient team.
About The Company
The client started operations in Ontario, Canada ,to service the Transportation & Logistics industry.
Geared at providing a one-stop solution for parceling, dispatching, tracking, shipping, billing, routing, and automation for Logistics operations, the client wanted to position itself as an Enterprise Supply chain management expert – complete with the Software functionality/product on offer.
Post the engagement; the client sold its Transport management solution to a larger Software firm.

The engagement was precise & brief since the client required only a singular resource for their front-end requirements. Herein Netsmartz brought in a Senior Full-stack Developer to work on their solution’s UX/UI.
The challenge was not of scale but of the precision of the skill that the client needed.
Thus the client could not flail and tinker around with freelancers, development sweatshops, and generic software partners.
They wanted the resource to be adequately trained with the various nitty-gritties in the Front-end stack and know the nuances that go along with crafting a user-centric solution. One that is logically sound, in crafting logistical solutions.
Therefore, Netsmartz needed to bring in a Senior resource who had experience in driving an entire project – without additional help or managerial notions in play.
Also, Netsmartz was keenly aware of the budget constraints. The client was clear on the RoI they expected and did not want to waste time or resources.
This also meant firing on all fronts, from Day 1. No hand-holding, or introductory measures.
Herein, Netsmartz’s autonomous expertise came into play – as well as the skills of our resource.
The project was a one-shot engagement. They needed a specific resource with prior experience in their industry. They wanted no fuss in hiring, no hand-holding requirements, and seamless delivery of front-end code to sit on top of their robust product. Netsmartz had its work cut out. Here’s how we proceeded:
The selection was quick and precise. We sifted amongst prevetted resources to select a Front-end expert who had experience managing and programming in the Logistics industry. After taking a thorough understanding of the requirements of the client, Netsmartz deployed a Senior resource for the Development work.
Autonomy of Operations and Delivery of Resources
The resource leveraged their experience and delivered the front-end architecture and code to the client. The relevant experience also helped our Develop eliminate the need for tedious back-and-forths, consistent collaboration, and bothersome managerial tenets – thus ensuring true ownership of the product. This streamlined delivery resulted in a fluid engagement, minimal interaction, and yet a fruitful engagement for the client.
The sound UX/UI granted the client a strong take-to-market proposition – wherein they could present and launch the transport solution for the target industry.
The process that Netsmartz established enabled the client to build a seamless Web app, which in turn expanded their user base, and the functional aspect of the app – and finally resulted in a cushy sale of their transport management solution.
The front-end Netsmartz’s developer crafted for Shyftbase enabled the client to package their entire solution and bring in an aesthetic derivative that was crucial for customer onboarding.
Thus making their partnership with Netsmartz a win-win arrangement.
