Business Need

Client is the UK's leading food service delivery and collection provider. It supplies food items across the UK, to customers of varied business like restaurants, cafes, etc. It delivers high-quality food items to 30,000 plus customers. Client had two sales channels - website and call center through which customers order online and also request for delivery of food items. During the food order delivery, if the temperature is not optimal then there is a risk of customer returning the goods. The truck drivers need to monitor the temperature of the truck periodically and check if it is within the optimal range and doesn’t go beyond the standard temperature limits or thresholds.

To make this food delivery operations more simple, efficient and intelligent, client wanted to automate the process by taking a step further; where drivers could deliver through IoT-connected mobile assets, such as Bluetooth printers and Bluetooth temperature sensors mounted in trucks. By deploying this advanced technology, client wanted to monitor the temperature of goods in real-time to ensure that high-quality food items are delivered; thereby offering a differentiated service to achieve customer delight.

Technology Solution

Windows Phone 8.1, SQLite, Azure Mobile Apps Services, Cloud Services, Azure Storage, Event Hubs & Stream Analytics, Microsoft Power BI

Saviant is one of those few Microsoft Azure Partners, who have pushed the envelop to adopt Azure’s cutting-edge cloud services to deliver a multi-tenant, cloud-based solution. The solution helped the client to up-scale service to 30,000+ customers, handling about 60,000 orders/month with 500+ connected devices to deliver high-quality food items.

Using Microsoft Azure platform and IoT expertise, our consultants have architected a robust & scalable supply chain management solution. It collects data from IoT enabled devices periodically, stores and monitors the temperature using Windows Phone (WP) application. The IoT enabled devices used in the solution are Bluetooth ZenMeasure sensors installed in the delivery truck compartment, which capture freezer and chiller temperature. For real-time temperature monitoring, we triggered Windows Phone background tasks that send real-time data of temperature to Azure Event Hub and stores the same in Azure SQL DB locally.

Azure Event Hub was leveraged to collect data from multiple sensors installed on trucks. This data was later pulled using Azure Stream Analytics, to generate real-time/on-the-fly analytics in graphical form using Power BI. Azure SQL DB was used as a repository to store static data sourced from Stream Analytics for any further analysis.
