Rosetree Solutions Develops Custom Vendor Management Application for Global Transportation Company
Volga-Dnepr is a global transportation company and market leader in unique and oversized cargo shipments, delivering complimentary logistics services to their clients. Some of the world’s largest cargo is flown by Volga-Dnepr to all seven continents.
Volga-Dnepr solicits quotes from third party vendors for transportation service needs. With offices around the globe, Volga-Dnepr used multiple disparate systems without unified consistency. The company needed to increase the quality and visibility of their vendor management within the Salesforce environment in order to achieve departmental growth. The ultimate vision for the engineering and logistics department was a centralized platform to view vendor performance, history, and capabilities, so that they could efficiently perform their duties and keep up with a growing vendor network.
Rosetree quickly built a proof of concept to demonstrate a potential solution to Volga-Dnepr. Leveraging the cloud-based capabilities of Salesforce and user interface development toolkit Skuid, this proof of concept quickly became the foundation for a new vendor management system. Volga-Dnepr and Rosetree’s collaboration led to a streamlined process where agents from Volga-Dnepr offices around the world can solicit quotes from any number of vendors simultaneously for multiple services, with instant access to information about the vendor’s past performance world-wide.
With a seamless application built natively on the Salesforce platform, Volga-Dnepr experienced a boost in the operational efficiency of their business process. Rosetree’s work also facilitates future business growth and capability to coordinate vendor management across regional offices at an increased volume.
“Rosetree as a solution provider allowed us to fully take on the advantages of the Skuid platform”
