Customs clearance technology for air, ocean, rail and truck imports and exports
SmartBorder’s goals were to increase its quality and speed of software development in order to fulfill its customers' changing needs in a very dynamic industry.
SmartBorder was lacking the bandwidth to cope with the combined challenges of maintaining its older assets and keeping up with an increasing customer demand for updated systems.
The goal of this project was to unify a set of international commerce legacy systems by merging them into a unique and technologically up-to-date web platform while the old systems were maintained during the process.
Kaizen developers created the front-end web platform solution from scratch using the latest technology. To increase productivity, the team created its own code generator which improved certain production timelines by nearly 100%.
