What was the scope of their involvement?
They developed the front- and backend of the API. There’s a website that accompanies the API, but the main focus was to create the various stacked platforms using SAP and blockchain technology. It was a serious software development project, verging on SaaS work. They worked with me in taking the SMS text functionality I built, and applying it to a frontend SAP.
From there, they built out the backend with the blockchain technology. That handles data reconciliation and provides a community dashboard for users to safely view their transactions. They integrated that with the frontend and SMS technology for a full API. Everything was created with Azure cloud, SAP, and Blockchain Smart Contracts.
The final product eliminates the current manual process for ordering jet fuel. It projects fuel prices on a weekly basis and automatically sends text message updates to those interested in purchasing supply. Prices used to be disseminated manually, but now customers don’t have to worry about collecting that information for themselves. The solution works at any altitude around the globe.
On the interface, customers and view transactions and keep running tallies of their spend volume. This also speeds up the payment process. The project is now complete, but they have recommendations to further build out some of the product features.
How did you come to work with Evgsoft?
I used Upwork to find a contractor and screen a few vendor options. A representative spoke to me from Evgsoft. Even though he had a limited background with aviation, he understood what I was trying to do. From there, we started communicating and sending process maps back and forth. I could tell that he had a strong ability to adapt to the business.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent about $20,000 with them on the project.
What is the status of this engagement?
Our engagement lasted from July–September 2019.
