How we helped a leading transportation company modernize their on-prem scheduling and monitoring application using MS Azure

Introduction   

Chalk Mountain is a renowned transportation and logistics company established in Texas that serves several sites around North America. They are a leader in oilfield logistics hauling sand, chemicals, cement, and water. 

Challenge Faced   

The client nature of business requires coordinating various shifts, drivers, and trucks and arranging them to pick up commodities from source sites and deliver them on schedule to oilfields/wells to guarantee uninterrupted fracking. The client needed to train planners to perform complex scheduling for drivers and shifts. The client’s system in place did not provide the modern web performance required to complete tasks and plan rapidly. The scheduling and delivery procedure was made even more difficult by the fact that close to 400 vehicles from various locations and divisions had to be managed daily. To solve this, they needed an automated scheduling and delivery system that can handle the end-to-end processes effectively.   

Solution 

Eleviant had first worked on a proof-of-concept showcasing automated scheduling process/capabilities to achieve delivery schedules. Later, the POC evolved into a full-fledged solution, complying with many business requirements such as minimum purchase commitment, travel time to destination, driver availability, and so on.  

The solution has resulted in on-time delivery and the elimination of Well operations disruption due to a lack of inventory. Due to the solution’s success, the client wanted to revamp the Web application’s user experience. This led to the development of an Integrated Scheduling and Monitoring System which provided the client with: 

  • Efficient delivery 
  • Real-time data tracking 
  • User management 
  • Data security
  • Intelligent dashboards
  • Cloud modernization 

The solution being deployed in the Azure Cloud gave us the ability to leverage cloud-provided access and security capabilities to protect/detect threats and warn the Tech Support teams in a timely way. Apart from this, engaging mobile apps were also developed by Eleviant to improve other processes, including real-time communication with the drivers.
