Using a structured project management approach, the Incepteo software development team applied their experience in converting client ideas into robust, durable code to clarify requirements and features. They also identified the information sources required to make carbon emission calculations.
The app would require third-party integration of multiple layers of data, including accurate mapping data. The user would also need to select options such for consignment data and mode of transportation.
The system would calculate distances and apply a core logic to the collated data. The team realised that by using an adapted version of a similar, but internal, calculating engine used the client’s customers, they could use some of its common data and functionality to output a result.
The most up-to-date and relevant technologies were applied to an initial model, including Angular, NodeJS, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap and Geo Maps, with a MongoDB cross-platform database solution. The app would also be Cloud-hosted using Amazon Web Services (AWS) for greater potential user capacity and security.
The initial design was then prototyped, visibly showing the client what the solution would look like before it was developed into the final product.
