A custom application for Blue Marine Transportation to improve everyday workflow and improve efficiency 

This application is not public facing and is used internally at Blue Marine Transportation 

The Custom Applications Team at C4 built an app for Blue Marine Transporation to:

  • Provide dispatchers a dashboard to create, edit and log dispatch tickets
  • Text drivers job details directly from the dashboard utilizing cell phone networks
  • Allow dispatchers to create profiles for drivers, agents, agencies, vessels and much more
  • Update ticket statuses to scheduled, in progress, delayed or complete

Misson

To help Blue Marine Transportation improve efficiency by creating an application that would help dispatchers improve efficiency 

Strategy 

  • Build an application that would provide a direct pipeline of information between dispatchers and drivers 
  • Implement a robust database to store profiles which enable dispatchers to create tasks in seconds, by utilizing click and grab functionality 
  • Integrate Twillo's API's to allow dispatchers the ability to text drivers creating a seamless workflow between various departments at Blue Marine Transportation 

Results
