TCT Dispatch was using a combination of unrelated tools to track a system of truckers, dispatchers, and administrative staff to deliver tons of sand to different oil wells across South Texas. The system was stressful to use, to say the least.
VND decided to use a blossoming technology, Node.js, to create TCT Dispatch’s solution. Through a web socket that kept constant connectivity, VND was able to deliver information between dispatchers, administrative staff, and drivers on a 24/7 schedule with zero downtime.
We also added the ability to send text messages from a single dashboard, and provided server hosting with a redundant scenario to protect against any primary server failure.
A process that before had taken several hours was reduced to a few minutes, which saves millions of dollars in time every year. The TCT team is now featured on a popular Discovery channel TV show, aptly named “Texas Trocas”, which has recently released its third season.
