Web application rich site development for a Dallas delivery company. A full online booking and management service.
Interaria was called in to design and develop a data base driven shipment scheduling and management website. We developed several PHP/MySWQL custom web applications such as a shipping rate calculator, a customer registration system, schedule shipment online features, and an online tracking system by weight and through an image upload system.
Unique applications for use by customers include custom coded shipping calculator (based on weight, delivery time and week day) and a custom coded service area checker. Visitors have the ability to create a customer account and schedule shipments online. They can track each shipment and view images to confirm the pick-up and delivery condition and status of the shipped packages. Drivers have the ability to login and check shipments assigned for them. They have a full control to update tracking log with new shipment information and pick-up and delivery photos. Drives can also generate new shipments.
Admin has access to a full dash board of data driven Web applications to manage the business:
Management of customer accounts: Access all customer accounts, manage tracking logs, create new shipments, update pending balances
Management of driver accounts: Assign delivery tasks for drivers, Add new drivers, Create special instruction lists for drivers
Management of delivery areas: Add new delivery areas
Management of shipping calculator: Update rate variables
