Challenge after Accepting an Order:
Managing it and Tracking Payment

Problem

Native Milk wanted an interface to easily process the order and track its payment status.

  • Confirmation of order status
  • Inventory & Stock Management
  • Confirmation of payment
  • Tracking of the parcel after shipping
  • Profit and Loss reports

Solution

We developed an admin panel to manage the whole order cycle from receiving to delivering.

  • Panel for order processing and assigning the delivery person
  • MIS reporting for stock management
  • Facility to manage customer accounts individually
  • Real-time Tracking of delivery boy’s location
  • Wallet option to track payments
  • Generation of business reports and statistical data for analysis

Challenge of Logistics:
Drivers changing frequently & Route Optimization

Problem

Problem

Native Milk always had to deal with route optimization to maximize profit and frequent changing of delivery boys. While this was easily manageable manually in offline business, it was a big headache when their business went digital.

Solution

Solution

We developed a mobile application for the drivers with route optimization. The total delivery area is divided into various routes and orders are sorted according to different routes. A driver is then assigned a single route.

  • Need to start from scratch for every new driver to inform about regular customers
  • Extra cost in fuel and logistics as drivers repeating routes and wasting time
  • No problem if the staff is new as orders are now assigned by the route and the driver doesn’t need customer data.
  • Saves cost by three times as drivers do not repeat routes while on the field during delivery.
    Example,
    1. Native milk takes INR 10 per order for shipping.
    2. One route of 5 km has 4 orders. Native milk takes INR 40 from the customers
    3. One driver is assigned the single route and takes INR 20 for the 5 km route.
    4. Native milk makes a profit of INR 40 - INR 20 = INR 20.

    With our solutions, total travelling that was 70 kms and spanned 5 hours daily came down to Around 55 hours in 4 hrs 30 mins.

Challenge of Accounting:
Reconciliation of Cash-on-Delivery Orders

Problem

A difference was observed in the cash claim difference between what the customer claimed to pay and what the delivery boy reported.

  • Manual reconciliation of cash payments took a lot of time.
  • Room for calculation mistakes as the accounting was being done on paper by hand.
  • Opportunity of fraud by customer or delivery person.

Solution

We added a Cash-on-Delivery option in the admin panel with OTP assigned to every delivery person.

  1. Delivery boy confirms the payment.
  2. Customer gets OTP.
  3. Delivery boy enters OTP.
  4. System registers ‘payment received’.
  • Manual reconciliation of cash payments took a lot of time.
  • Room for calculation mistakes as the accounting was being done on paper by hand.
