During the last ten years, DHTMLX products have gained popularity in the world of web development thanks to the availability of highly-demanded functionalities, comprehensive API, smooth integration with other technologies, and especially for their extensive customization possibilities.
DHTMLX customers frequently outsource their business needs to our custom software development company named XB Software. Here they can rely on the experienced team of developers who have enough knowledge and skills to perform DHTMLX customization and deployment tasks in strict accordance with the specified requirements.
To back up our words with some actual evidence, we will consider four real cases of how our popular DHTMLX Gantt and Scheduler components can be customized and integrated into business apps.
DHTMLX in Delivery Management System
The customer working in the sphere of logistics has requested the development of a delivery management software. The solution had to satisfy the following requirements:
- ensure quality data exchange between different branches of the company (from dispatchers to drivers)
- optimize delivery processes and reduce costs
- new functionality must become an addition to the existing ERP system utilized by the customer’s company.
As a result, the product created by XB Software with the help of the DHTMLX Scheduler has helped the logistics company to optimize delivery processes and boost its work efficiency.
DHTMLX in Project Management App for Construction Industry
Managing a construction project can be very complex and time-consuming, as it commonly includes the necessity to keep track of a large list of activities, effectively handle challenging tasks, assign available resources, and monitor the overall progress of one or even several projects at once. One construction company experienced similar difficulties and reached out to XB Software specialists with the necessity to develop the online management application based on the DHTMLX products.
When working on this project, the development team has relied entirely on our Gantt chart and Scheduler components as well as on React framework, and it paid off. Using DHTMLX Gantt, developers have enriched the application with a user-friendly Gantt chart functionality. It helps to visualize a particular project along a given timeline, thereby providing necessary data on tasks with their start and end dates, workforce involved, project status at any given moment.
If the project manager wants to see all tasks assigned to a specific person, he/she can also make use of the resource calendar implemented with the help of DHTMLX Scheduler.
Users can create new projects from scratch, employ predefined templates. When working with multiple projects, users can easily switch between them.
When it comes to project tasks, it is possible to easily create and manage different types of tasks (regular, project, milestone) using drag-n-drop functionality. Users can define dependencies between tasks, split complex tasks into more manageable pieces, change the percent of task completion and its duration on the fly.
DHTMLX Gantt also provided more advanced project management features. For instance, enhanced resource management capabilities allow users to analyze the workload of each worker and allocate resources to tasks more efficiently utilizing the resource usage diagram. In addition, project managers can apply baselines, deadlines, and other useful elements.
Thus, this application allows managers of the construction company not only to be more effective in tracking current projects and distributing tasks among employees but also to define a clear timeframe for a particular project and plan ahead.
DHTMLX in Truck Booking and Monitoring System
Nowadays, it is next to impossible to become successful in any field without the use of the latest software standards and technologies. For instance, one large logistics company specialized in truck renting had a hard time trying to improve its fleet management efficiency, cut operating costs, and increase overall business performance before the adoption of a custom truck booking and monitoring system with GPS tracking support developed by our outsourcing company.
The intuitive user interface based on Material Design, sorting and searching options allow users to easily navigate through tons of events and find all necessary info in a couple of clicks. The possibility to look through the list of available trucks and their locations via the roadmap view helps to quickly find the most appropriate variant. Cross-browser and cross-platform support allows users to conveniently use the application from different browsers and devices without rendering issues.
All in all, this DHTMLX-backed software solution helped the logistics company to raise service standards, optimize its costs, and increase customer satisfaction.
DHTMLX in Car Service Scheduling and Warehouse Management System
The maintenance and repair of vehicles is an extremely competitive industry, thus owners of repair shops have to invest not only into car repair equipment, but also into software solutions that help to address the following needs: service scheduling, warehouse management, and company performance evaluation. Seems like each of the above-mentioned tasks may require a separate software solution. But the XB software team managed to develop an all-in-one solution built upon DHTMLX Scheduler that fully complies with the request of one big car service company.
The flexible scheduling system implemented with the help of our Scheduler library provides a convenient way of making appointments via an intuitive online calendar. If clients need to see the schedule of a specific specialist on a particular day, they can find this info using different filtering options. This software solution also allows technicians of the company to get a brief description of the client’s problem and to see the availability of required car parts in stock for each particular case using custom tooltips supported by our library.
Moreover, it is possible to schedule the purchase and delivery of missing components. Thereby, DHTMLX Scheduler improves warehouse management and facilitates the automation of the overall workflow. Besides, the system enables the company’s management to gather staff statistics and estimate the efficiency of each employee.
Ultimately, the company has received a comprehensive software system reinforced by DHTMLX Scheduler capabilities that significantly simplify interactions with customers, enhances warehouse management, and assesses the productivity of the company’s staff.
