INDUSTRY

SaaS Software

REVENUE

$15 – $20 Million

The client is a software solutions provider for third-party logistics (3PL) companies. Their state-of-the-art SaaS technology solution integrates multiple functionalities into a unified, cloud-based Transportation Management System (TMS) to help 3PLs enhance supply chain visibility, control, efficiency, and productivity.

Challenges in scaling resources for faster product development

The client wanted to launch their cloud-based TMS in the market in a short time span and mobilizing a tech-savvy team to build the app with all the necessary features and functionalities was challenging. They were looking for a highly capable technology partner who could provide robust software engineering services across the product development life cycle. The client approached Emtec Digital owing to our track record of working with the top 10 logistics companies and our vast experience in application development and building asynchronous integrations for large volumes of enterprise data.

Emtec Digital’s pod-based approach to application design and development

We began working on this project in the middle of pandemic-induced worldwide lockdowns making recruiting a challenge. However, our extensive recruitment and onboarding methodologies enabled us to quickly mobilize a highly skilled engineering team from remote locations. We set up a team of 100+ software engineers and technology specialists within the first few months. Our informal, transparent work culture and innovative training methods ensured team bonding and smooth knowledge transfer with a seamless transition for all engineers into the client’s technology environment.


Today, Emtec Digital is involved in the design and development of the end-to-end architecture for the client’s Transportation Management System, leveraging our extended capabilities in digital platform engineering. We take a pod-based approach to platform development with sprint-level ownership that drives engineering maturity. Our robust IT processes and governance standards help mitigate numerous challenges. Our engineering team works closely with the client’s product team to build newer features and functionality enhancements independently with minimal involvement from their tech team. Some of the core product features and functionalities we are working on include –
