Mandate

Being a high growth company the Bolloré Logistics wanted to partner with a trusted and well referenced technology partner to support its transport and logistics projects. Bolloré Logictics chose VeroSoft Design (VSD) to maintain and develop the Prostream logistics software. ProStream is the tool Bolloré Logistics uses to provide Oil & Gas, mining and industrial project customers with parcel-level line item checking, and the generation of related documents.

Challenge

VeroSoft Design (VSD) had the challenge to upgrade a technology that was not very flexible, obsolete and did not allow Bolloré’s employees to be proactive. The optimization need was critical because it was being deployed to hundreds of users across the globe, so a team dedicated to the ProStream / Bolloré project was created to overcome this problem. VSD was also mandated to completely revamp the software on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV technology platform and to deploy and optimize it.

The results

The deployment of the new version of Prostream on Microsoft Dynamics NAV technology has enabled more than 100 users to considerably increase their productivity in a very short time. Project teams were able to deploy the new site-by-site solution after only a few days of configuration. This fully Microsoft-compliant platform also integrated with Microsoft Office tools, continues to provide Prostream users with state-of-the-art application ergonomics and allows the to face the future with confidence. This was a priority for the Bolloré Group, and the results are concrete.

  • The software is now fully integrated with all the tools of the Bolloré Group and all the tools of the Microsoft Office productivity suite;
  • Features are more advanced, flexible and easy to use;
  • Users can now have a modular and customized use of the application thanks to the graphical interface adaptable according to their needs;
  • Data is more secure with real-time backups;
  • The ability to develop and add new features is facilitated by a seamless integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV;
  • Development time is now divided by four;
