This Is Why Quality Assurance Is Indispensable
for Logistics Software Solutions
You will not find it difficult to prove that
battles, campaigns, and even wars have been won
or lost primarily because of logistics.
General Dwight D. Eisenhower This statement by
General Eisenhower aptly summarizes the value
that logistics industry beholds. From military
operations to retail, logistics is the key supply
chain facilitator for each sector. Logistics, as
a function, has evolved drastically both in
terms of efficiency as well as speed especially
with software-as-a-service gaining momentum in
the industry. The digital disruption of logistics
is proving to be beneficial in setting up a
continuous communication channel and end-to-end
visibility throughout the process. Adoption of
digital ways is allowing logistic solutions
providers to have enhanced control over freight
mobility through real-time tracking, ease of
access, and transparency in costs. With the goal
of enabling maximum user satisfaction, both
industry newbies as well as incumbents of the
sector are either already using or strategizing
to leverage latest technology and tools. The
modern logistics software solutions utilize
advanced cloud computing, IoT, Augmented Reality,
Virtual Reality, and automation are for enhanced
functionality and performance. However, centering
the focus only on the implementation of
technology, without checking whether the
implemented technology is working as desired or
not, might have serious repercussions.

Since, decisions such as digitization are
disruptive, the responsibility to make them lies
with the leaders. While the leaders in logistics
work to make the disruption as least disruptive
as possible, they should put significant
consideration into making sure that the
technology works in the expected manner. Quality
assurance becomes critical here to prevent chaos
and guarantee that the overall operations are
streamlined and optimized. The benefits of a
logistics software The scope of logistics
industry is vast, including air, water, and
railroad transportation, pipelines, and courier
delivery services. Being a key aspect to maintain
a smooth supply chain flow, a bump-free logistics
management is essential. From warehousing, fleet
management, inventory tracking to processing
orders, vendor management, and transportation
management, there is a ton of documentation
involved in a single logistic operation. The
earlier, pre-digitization methods were laborious,
time-consuming, and full of human errors. The
absence of transparency in the workflow used to
cause severe inefficiencies such as misplaced
cargo, untraceable theft, and delayed deliveries.
With digital management software solutions,
manual intervention is reduced to negligible,
which further eliminate the possibility of manual
errors. Digitization of logistics offers the
benefits of higher accuracy, improved speed, and
easy tracking. By automating functions such as
route planning and creation, load planning,
documentation, and data entry, the logistics
software reduces both costs and efforts. Through
a unified portal or dashboard, supply planning
and management, vendor management, and shipment
tracking become a cakewalk.

Why quality assurance is indispensable for
logistics? Currently, every junction in the
operational flow is fortified with advanced
software technology with as minimum human
interaction as possible. As the digital systems
take up the responsibility of upholding an
easy-flowing channel, a single technical glitch
might cause the whole operation to come to a
standstill. Imagine what chaos an obstruction or
a simple server downtime will lead to! The
gatekeepers will not be able to access the
digital gate passes. Consequently, the cargo
carriers will not get permission to move ahead
as. Payment and order processing will take
several minutes. There will be frantic calls from
frustrated customers who cannot track their
shipment through the online portal. As logistics
is integrated with every other industry function,
the effect of such technical errors expands
across various sectors. The latest technology
might make processes more sophisticated, but
quality assurance is mandatory to ensure the
processes stay sophisticated. End-to-end testing
services are imperative to enable an unhindered
visibility into the end-to-end logistics
operation flow. Quality assurance services for

  • While employing quality assurance services, it is
    necessary to take a holistic approach
    encompassing diverse types of testing including
  • Functional Testing A logistics software
    incorporates a variety of features that deal with
    multiple process flows. Functional testing checks
    whether all those features are working fine or
    not.
  • Performance Testing The vast network and scope
    of a logistic operation extends across states and
    countries. Performance testing ensures that the
    software does not crash under heavy load or
    simultaneous usage.
  • Security Testing The widespread network of
    logistics also exposes it to several security
    vulnerabilities. This is why, it is absolutely
    important that security testing is given a high
    priority.
  • Mobile Testing Majority of users access the
    logistics software application through their
    mobile devices. Mobile testing guarantees that
    the users get a seamless experience on their
    mobile devices as well.
  • Cloud Testing With large storage needs, cloud
    adoption is gaining popularity. But, migration
    from physical storage spaces to cloud can be
    tricky. Cloud testing not only facilitates a
    smooth migration but also tests the cloud
    solution for security, performance, and latency.
