Westmoreland Software Embraces React Native: A Game-Changer for Mobile Development

We are excited to announce a recent project that our team completed to track the logistics of material delivery via trucks to the work site.  The application coordinates the accurate and timely delivery of load list materials requested by supervisors in the field from the yard to prevent work stoppages. 

The Problem

Our customer had issues getting material orders for their crews working in the fields.  These issues were causing costly delays and work stoppages.  Material ordered by supervisors from the central yard was delivered incorrectly or delayed at times. 

The Solution

The mobile solution that our team delivered allowed our customer start to finish tracking of material requests and deliveries.  It featured the ability for supervisors to request materials and choose from available delivery dates.  It allowed the central yard to approve and fill orders as well as document and take pictures of materials loaded on the trucks, materials that were substituted, and materials that were missing.  The application then allowed the drivers to inspect the manifest and receive accurate delivery information and directions as well as document and take pictures of the delivery.  Finally it allowed the administration to analyze trends in material being requested and shorted so that inventory levels could be adjusted.

Why React Native?

React Native is an innovative framework developed by Facebook that allows for the development of mobile apps using JavaScript—a language known by many developers. This framework enables developers to write code once and deploy it on both iOS and Android platforms, ensuring a quicker development cycle and a significant reduction in costs.

How Does This Benefit You as Our Client?

  1. Faster Time to Market: Using React Native speeds up the development process considerably. Statistics show that development time can be reduced by up to 30% when using React Native compared to native technologies. This swift development process means you can launch your app faster than ever before.
  2. Cost Efficiency: Since React Native allows for the use of a single codebase across multiple platforms, the need for separate iOS and Android teams is eliminated. This integration can reduce development costs by up to 35%, making it an economical choice for businesses of all sizes.
  3. Consistent User Experience: React Native provides a seamless user experience across all devices. Apps developed with this framework perform as close to native apps as possible, ensuring that your users enjoy reliable, responsive interfaces regardless of their device.
  4. Easy Updates: With React Native, applying updates and enhancements to your mobile app can be as simple as updating a web page. This means faster turnaround times for new features and improvements, keeping your app up-to-date with the latest trends and customer demands.

Cutting-Edge Technology

React Native is considered cutting-edge due to its unique approach to mobile development. It combines the best parts of native development with React, a best-in-class JavaScript library for building user interfaces. This framework is continually supported and updated by Facebook and a large community of developers, ensuring it stays on the forefront of mobile development technology.

In addition to its technical merits, React Native is used by some of the world’s leading companies, including Instagram, Bloomberg, and Airbnb, which speaks volumes about its capabilities and trustworthiness.
