The idea behind my project came about when a family friend who owns a delivery company approached me and asked was there any applications on the market that would fix the problems he was having. The main problems were communication issues as well as finding the fastest route to several locations. There were other minor problems such as making it easier for new employees to be familiar with certain numbers and staff within the company.

I researched and was unable to find any application so I decided that it would be possible for me to make it and have the required functionalities as well as others that would help overall. I decided to create a mobile application as it will allow ease of access to the application. I called the application DropSolutions, I wanted to give the user access to functionalities that will aid them in their day to day tasks. The application is designed for all employees within a delivery company to use.

The main problems that the application will aid in areas such as communication, directions and overall provide the user with information on the company. Such as the other depots locations, the staff in each depot as well as important numbers that the user may need. These functions are especially useful for new employees as it helps them get familiar with the company overall.

I approached my family friend and asked would it be possible for me to test my application in one of his depots. I wanted to do this as it would allow me great insight from my targeted users. They agreed to test the application for a week this gave them enough time to get use to the application and rate the functionality.

DropSolutions is an application which could be modified slightly to fit other delivery company’s needs and then be launched within the company. As there is a large amount of applications out there that fix problems that delivery companies encounter but I have not found one application that has all the functionality in the one app. I feel that DropSolutions could be a solution for this as I have created specific functionalities to resolve the delivery company’s common problems.
