Business CHALLENGE

Logistics is not just about transporting goods from point A and delivering them to point B. This industry stands for a broad-spectrum flow management approach like warehousing, controlling procedures for safe transportation, customs, financing, covering the insurance side, etc.



Nurturing the idea of creating an all-in-one freight-forwarding platform, Beacon chose Opinov8 as a technology partner to bring that very same idea to reality. The objective to build a highly functional platform from scratch using the latest technologies, implement best practices, and innovative solutions marked the beginning of productive cooperation between Beacon and Opinov8.

SOLUTION

PoC approach

Being driven by the business outcome, Opinov8 started with a PoC approach to make sure that the presented concept has the potential and feasibility for a real-world financially viable platform. At that stage, distinct processes with different objectives and participants’ roles were analyzed and defined.

Business analytics

A lot of work has been done from the business analytics perspective to ensure that all features and the overall platform functionality have good usability. Building the flexible platform meant seamlessly checking all available transportation options with automatic price calculation for the delivery before the shipment booking, tracking the location of their goods in real-time, downloading invoices, and managing all the required documents.

100% user-friendly

There weren't just users but also platform admins who needed to have their portal for managing all milestones for each order, uploading invoices and requests from company owners (users), managing invoices, and tracking invoice statuses. Having the front and back office of the platform built, Beacon involved its first users in testing it and providing Opinov8 with remarks, which was a big step forward in making it 100% user-friendly.

BUSINESS VALUE

Productive cooperation, agility, knowledge sharing, and professionalism resulted in a successful product release. The big solution requires small and well-calculated steps, so that’s exactly how Opinov8 and Beacon saw the successful product realization on the market. There is a quote from The Times Magazine - “Beacon is aimed at the trillion-dollar freight forwarding industry — the booking agents between importers and exporters.” and it says it all.
