John's Farmlet Services primarily provide household and commercial water deliveries. When we first met with them they were overloaded with orders and no efficient way of managing them. They were using a rudimentary database system, but their business was largely run on paper and was threatening to overwhelm them. Of course this was highly stressful on the business owners, and their level of service to their clients was far from ideal. We designed and developed a PHP web application that solved many of these problems for them. All orders and deliveries are now managed through the web application and the owners can see the state of their business clearly at all times. The system also uses web to SMS to send accurate delivery instructions to drivers, a process that was previously done manually. That was of course very time consuming and also prone to errors, now the system sends the delivery instructions at the click of a button with 100% accuracy.
