The system has produced a significant competitive advantage in the industry thanks to SumatoSoft’s well-thought opinions.

They shouldered the burden of constantly updating a project management tool with a high level of detail and were committed to producing the best possible solution.

Nectarin LLC aimed to develop a complex Ruby on Rails-based platform, which would be closely integrated with such systems as Google AdWords, Yandex Direct and Google Analytics.

I was impressed by SumatoSoft’s prices, especially for the project I wanted to do and in comparison to the quotes I received from a lot of other companies.

Also, their communication skills were great; it never felt like a long-distance project. It felt like SumatoSoft was working next door because their project manager was always keeping me updated. Initially.

We tried another company that one of our partners had used but they didn’t work out. I feel that SumatoSoft does a better investigation of what we’re asking for. They tell us how they plan to do a task and ask if that works for us. We chose them because their method worked with us.

SumatoSoft is great in every regard including costs, professionalism, transparency, and willingness to guide. I think they were great advisors early on when we weren’t ready with a fully fleshed idea that could go to market.

They know the business and startup scene as well globally.

SumatoSoft is the firm to work with if you want to keep up to high standards. The professional workflows they stick to result in exceptional quality.

Important, they help you think with the business logic of your application and they don’t blindly follow what you are saying. Which is super important. Overall, great skills, good communication, and happy with the results so far.

Together with the team, we have turned the MVP version of the service into a modern full-featured platform for online marketers. We are very satisfied with the work the SumatoSoft team has performed, and we would like to highlight the high level of technical expertise, coherence and efficiency of communication and flexibility in work.

We can say with confidence that SumatoSoft has realized all our ideas into practice.

We are absolutely convinced that cooperation between companies is only successful when based on effective teamwork (and Captain Obvious is on our side!). But the teams may vary on the degree of their cohesion.

They are very sharp and have a high-quality team. I expect quality from people, and they have the kind of team I can work with. They were upfront about everything that needed to be done.

I appreciated that the cost of the project turned out to be smaller than what we expected because they made some very good suggestions. They are very pleasant to work with.

The Rivalfox had the pleasure to work with SumatoSoft in building out core portions of our product, and the results really couldn’t have been better.

SumatoSoft provided us with engineering expertise, enthusiasm and great people that were focused on creating quality features quickly.

We’d like to thank SumatoSoft for the exceptional technical services provided for our business. It should be noted that we started our project’s development with another team, but the communication and the development process in general were not transparent and on schedule. It resulted in a low-quality final product.

SumatoSoft succeeded in building a more manageable solution that is much easier to maintain.

When looking for a strategic IT-partner for the development of a corporate ERP solution, we chose SumatoSoft. The company proved itself a reliable provider of IT services.

Thanks to SumatoSoft can-do attitude, amazing work ethic and willingness to tackle client’s problems as their own, they’ve become an integral part of our team. We’ve been truly impressed with their professionalism and performance and continue to work with a team on developing new applications.

We are completely satisfied with the results of our cooperation and will be happy to recommend SumatoSoft as a reliable and competent partner for development of web-based solutions

    Frequently asked questions

    When do you need custom transportation app software development?

    The most simple wat to answer this question is to look at your business and ask yourself two questions: 

    1. Do I see options on how to improve my business? 
    2. Do I see bottlenecks that are impossible to solve purely with the processes changes?

    If the answer at lest on one of this question is yes, your business definitely needs an app or website.

    Do you work with existing transportation and logistics software or only develop solutions from scratch?

    We work both with existing transportation and logistics software and develop new custom logistics software. 

    Regarding the improvement of existing software, we can reengineer the solution, run performance, security, and usability tests to understand the quality of the app. We also can examine the code, develop new models, or integrate the existing solution with other software. 

     

    What is your pricing model for logistics software development services?

    We at SumatoSoft, work with 3 pricing models when building logistics projects: fixed price, time & material, and dedicated team. The choice of the model depends on your project budget, business goals, timelines, and other factors. You make the final choice of the model, we only advise on the most suitable model for the specific logistics project. From our experience, 90% of our customers prefer to cooperate using the price & material engagement model. Let’s discuss them. 

     

    Fixed price

    When the project scope is defined, we use a fixed price cost estimation model. Payments are made on pre-defined milestones. 3 features characterize this pricing model: we work with a clearly defined and unchangeable specification, the client and we approve the budget of the logistics software development at the beginning of the project, and we agree upon deadlines. The fixed price model is extremely rigid regarding any project scope, budget, or timeline changes.

    Time & Material

    Time & Material engagement model means billing is based on actual time worked by each team member. This model is flexible to requirements change requests during the project development. 90% of our clients find this model the most suitable for their logistics software development projects. This model is tolerant to requirements, budget, and timeline changes. This model also guarantees that the final application or website will meet your business requirements. 

    Dedicated team

    Our software developers become a part of your team, which is being managed by your colleagues. Billing is based on the hourly rates of the developers included in the dedicated team on a monthly basis. This model is useful when you have well-established in-house management andthe project is planned to be a long-lasting one. 

    What is the major technology stack and cost towards logistics app development?

    The technology stack for logistics software development can include PHP, Python, JavaScript, SQL, Angular, Google Maps, Laravel, and here comes the list of almost all other technologies for website and mobile app development. Instead of describing all possible combinations of tech stack, we describe several aspects of logistics software development and technologies we use for them.

    Start with the most evident part of any software development project: every application or a website needs front-end and back-end. We prefer Ruby on Rails as a full stack development framework both for front- and backend. Rails is cheap, fast, and quality framework – so we picked it as our core competence. 

    Sometimes we refer to other frameworks like AngularJS, ReactJS, React, Bootstrap. We also use languages for native iOS and Android development, but it’s no an often case. 

    One more thing to mention here is mapping technologies. The evident market leader is Google Map. However, we also like a solution Maptitude. 

    Regarding databases, we prefer PostgreSQL, Redis, MySQL. And speaking about web server software: we are experts at two most popular solutions, Apache and Nginx. Sometimes we also use Phusion Passenger that easily integrates with the mentioned solutions.

    To continue, we use Amazon Web Servers as a main cloud solution to run logistics app. 

    Finally, we can empower the website with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data technologies. 

    This is the core tech stack. It allows to build almost any logistics solution that requires such things like

    • real-time location tracking using geotags; 
    • route visualization;
    • freights cost calculations;
    • processing and storing of large data sets;
    • interactive dashboards;
    • traffic and route optimization;
    • fuel tracking;
    • M2M communication; 
    • and more. 

    The final cost of custom logistics software and app development services depends on 5 key factors: target platform and devices, feature scope, UX/UI, team size, and location. The average price range for a full-fledged application will be between $100.000 and $300.000, while MVP development (the initial version of a mobile app) will require $10.000 – $50.000.
