Smart Driver
Smart logistics in mobile app

Mobile application for forwarders, back office and counterparties of Sladkaya Zhizn, the largest Russian distributor of food products in the retail and HoReCa segment

About the Project

Sladkaya Zhizn is a partner of stores throughout Russia with almost 30 years of experience in the field of food product supply. The company delivers goods to 7,000 B2B customers daily.

The distributor’s range of commodities includes 14,000 product items of 400 leading Russian and foreign manufacturers.

625 road trains of leading brands work to ensure that customers of Sladkaya Zhizn receive goods on time and without delay.

Problem and task
It was difficult for a delivery service with such a large fleet to organize logistic interactions between sales representatives, forwarders and customers using paper workflow: there were short deliveries, difficulties with routing and tracking the status of orders.

It was necessary to create a solution to ensure efficient and prompt exchange of information on orders within the chain “manager — driver — counterparty”, as well as performance of the driver's work processes: preparation for a trip, following a route, building an optimal route, delivering orders, handing-over goods at the customer’s site.

We created an application that allows setting up a convenient logistic interaction between the Sladkaya Zhizn’s managers, counterparties and forwarders. Useful functions are implemented in two formats — desktop and mobile applications.
  • Tracking by drivers of the entire route and their status
  • Push notifications. Profile message history. Offline mode
  • Integration with Yandex.Navigator OS to select the best route with regard to the current traffic situation
  • Notification in case of incorrect position data
  • Cards with detailed information on each waypoint (description, phone number, address, etc.)
  • Adaptive design for various OS versions, mobile phones and tablets
  • An option to add a grade of a sales outlet on a 5-point scale and comments to the grade
  • An option to call a customer or a sales representative using the application
For the back office of Sladkaya Zhizn and counterparties, a desktop version of the personal account was developed:
  • An option to edit dialog boxes
  • Editing of consignment notes
  • Order status reports
  • Building and changing of the sequence of drivers’ routes
  • Request for and receipt of a reconciliation act
  • Geolocation of forwarders
