DHLItNow for DHL UK
We created a web application DHLItNow for DHL UK which allows non-account customers to send domestic and international parcels. It supports users with the whole process: from the pricing of shipping, printing necessary documents such as waybills, customs clearance and invoices to ordering a courier. The customer can also pay online for shipments.
The DHLItNow application is integrated with several internal services which provide core functionalities of DHL internal systems:
- The availability of shipment products and additional services like shipping insurance and pricing .
- Managing number ranges for waybills
- Generating labels for shipments
- Placing orders for couriers
- Shipment status notifications
- Electronic proof of delivery
- In addition the application is integrated with external service providers like:
- Payment gateways (WorldPay and PayPal)
- Address verification and autocomplete services for the UK
The multi-tiered architecture of DHLitNow helps us to separate presentation logic from business domain logic. The middleware layer is designed to process a lot of time consuming requests to internal DHL services to ensure a high performance and a satisfying user experience. We also provide hosting and support services for the created solution.
