Editor’s note: Today we hear from Simon Verdon, IT Solutions Manager at GEFCO UK, a leading global logistics services provider, which specializes in logistics solutions for manufacturers.
From supply to distribution, GEFCO provides global logistics services for its industrial customers with applied expertise in automotive logistics. Founded in 1949, GEFCO has 80 hubs and 65 logistics platforms operating in 39 countries.
As the IT Solutions Manager at GEFCO UK, I was tasked to create a logistics management system with real-time tracking of packaging materials for one of our major clients. The system needed to have multiple role-based permissions, restricting access to data by role. Users of the system are spread across the offices in France and UK.
After evaluating several Rapid Application development tools, I found that none of them met our requirements. Most of them had either limited capabilities or had lots of hidden costs, among other concerns. We realized that Caspio’s powerful platform provided the stability, scalability, and security we needed for our system at a reasonable price. Using low-code development, we were able to develop the system in just a few days.
