The choice is ours

Breakthrough in the Grey Room

Filed under: Business Development — shippingpal @ 12:20 pm

The team is pretty jubilant today, as we are finally making progress in an important part of the system, the integration with Go-Logix that will allow us to return results for Purolator and UPS. There have been a number of challenges in terms of matching up their system with our existing one, for instance they don’t return delivery times, only service levels, so we’ve had to script a bunch of interpretations of the service levels to convert them to delivery times. At any rate, some real progress has been made and we’re all excited about it.

Tomorrow, I’ll be working the phones with our team and talking to a bunch of courier firms as we bring them on board, and by the end of the week we should be running at full capability. There’s a lot to do between now and then, but I am confident it can be accomplished on time. On November 20th, our media blitz begins, so between now and then it’s going to be a whole lot of coffee and coding – two of my favourite things.
