Business Challenge

A Global Logistics Company required a Project Manager to lead a Sortation Code Upgrade at two sortation hubs. With the utilization of Project Management best practices, the project was initiated with a gap assessment to determine the current system functionality. Multiple deployments were created to incrementally build the software functionality without impeding operations. Upon final deployment, the Sortation Upgrade was successfully completed allowing for increased package sortation functionality and efficiency.

Our Approach

We started the process by performing a gap assessment on the software’s current sortation functionality. Upon completion of the gap assessment, multiple design sessions were held to ensure the design met the Business and Operations expectations. We conducted key activities that included prioritizing critical resources and on-going weekly communication. By working with both internal and external stakeholders, Brevitas lead the project to a successful deployment while ensuring all business needs were met and completion prior to peak season.

Results Achieved

From inception to completion, the Brevitas team contributed to the success of the project by:

  • Performing a gap analysis on the current state of the software
  • Hosting design workshops
  • Providing technical input into the FS and Test Scripts for the FAT and Deployments
  • Hosting Demo sessions
  • Organizing training sessions for Client individuals
  • Organizing and tracking the status on a weekly basis
  • Providing an exhaustive “lessons learned” report to key stakeholders, and recommendations on how to improve performance for deployments
