Tech Challenges

Tech Challenges

The major challenge was determining the scope for an MVP version of this complex SaaS platform combining two complicated domains. The first one was logistics, which had an extensive system managing the processes of choosing and obtaining goods, concluding deals, and checking the compliance with Incoterms and other legal documents. The second one included specific agricultural commodities and mechanisms, which required deep knowledge of this economic sector and its features. Our team had to dig into numerous agricultural species, their peculiarities, and the issue of what loading, shipping and legal standards and limitations had to be applied to certain agricultural commodities. Also, we had to develop an admin panel with advanced settings to configure for the platform’s versatile needs, such as searching for buyers and sellers or managing Incoterms and types of packaging and delivery. Despite all difficulties, we succeeded in these daunting tasks owing to our professionals, especially a team member who led this project and had a background and commercial experience in international logistics. The entire team enjoyed the working process and communication with the client.
