Prior Notify is a platform for creating prior-notices to simplify the import of products to the US market.
To manage the import of products successfully, the American Government has an official website with numerous steps, which is quite complicated to use and has outdated UI. Prior Notify was developed to simplify the shipping process, increase the speed and transparency of the process. This platform unites shippers and producers, becoming a unified place to share the product information, shipping details, all necessary agreements and payments.
Scope of work
The client provided us with detailed requirements and desired design. Our team was responsible for the full cycle of software development including project’s architecture and database structure.
- Decision on technical stack
- Front-end/back-end development
- Quality assurance
There are 3 types of users on this platform: producers, shippers and merchants. They can contact each other and create prior-notices – a kind of order that is required to import drinks (including alcohol) and food to the USA. Each of them can separately add necessary documents, see if they are approved and keep track on the shipping process.
One of the main benefits of the platform is an easy-to-use interface. Prior Notify was created to simplify the creation of prior-notices for the FDA web site users. The admin dashboard includes only the most important sections, where you can easily find all the necessary info about producers, recipients and shippers. Also, the system makes the payment process easier, because it charges when you reach 10 orders and offers a trial for the same number of prior-notices. It is connected to your credit card, so you don’t need to leave the website when you need to pay for the service.
You can quickly check the status of each order and track payment history. The platform gives you a clear picture of how many prior-notices are completed, canceled or in progress. Also, you can see the number of products per Prior Notice and how many of them were imported during a specific month.
