Portal Application for Container Intermodal Industry

Executive Summary

The aim of this project is to design and develop a client portal application for the Container Intermodal Industry. The application will allow intermodal companies (Client) to provide secure access to container leasing information to their customers, vendors and own internal users via a simple Web 2.0 interface.

The Intermodal SaaS application will be a multi-tenant application segmented by host names that will present container companies (Client) with a fully brand-able interface by which to provide their users access to available information and functions. Core functions will include the sign on/off, user account management, and available app management.

A super admin site will allow for management of all Clients and necessary functions such as provisioning, app availability and metering. Line of Business applications will be available to Client via a system of modular “apps”. Apps can be made available to all or some clients via the super admin interface thereby creating an atmosphere of public, private or semi-private apps for consumption by clients. Scalability is the key and use of the Windows Azure cloud based infrastructure will allow the application to scale as necessary.

Management features will allow the application to automatically scale as demand dictates. This is done with responsive web design so that the system can run from smartphone browsers, tablets and conventional computers.
