“Creating a platform and solving supply chain problems isn’t easy, especially when you have no technical expertise. Luckily, we have IT companies like SoftProdigy that are bound to impress with their advanced tech solutions. What I liked the most about this company is that they are always one step further when it comes to web development. It’s good to see how they use a variety of industry-specific tools and technologies that not only solve problems, but also innovate ideas. I’d like to thank them for taking care of the Ninjacart website.”

About Ninjacart


Ninjacart is India’s largest and fastest fresh produce supply chain platform that connects food producers with restaurants, retailers, and other service providers. They play a pivotal role in curbing the problems faced by the farmers like distribution inefficiency, price risk, receipt of late payments, information asymmetry, etc. through their leading platform.


On the same lines, they help retailers get over the problems of getting low-quality produce, high prices, and the hassle of going to the market every day. Ninjacart targets the inefficiency and wastage associated with traditional supply chains by connecting these parties through a competent digital platform and they are succeeding in their mission. Their supply chain is equipped to move 1,400 tons of perishables every day from farms to businesses, in less than 12 hours.

Project Execution

The Problems

When we looked into the client’s plan, we took a note of a few things that were going to be challenging. To name some - we needed to create supply chain visibility, simplify demand planning and integrate it on the cloud, manage the supply in real-time, create hassle-free collaboration for all parties through an open logistics structure, and more.

We also needed the platform to be able to oversee and track multiple farmers, their produce, and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). Another challenge was the Product Lifecycle Management for reduced time to market and easy process management. Multiple repositories, AG Grids, and Complex codes were some of the challenges we met along the way. Also, the platform’s database was inaccessible by the search engines and was not indexed.

The Solutions

Once we chose the tech stack for the platform, we started working on the frontend development and conceptualized client’s ideas though a deployment plan. For demand planning, we brought connected processes, ML and AI into action and made provisions for supply and demand monitoring, inventory management, ordering, and forecasting.

We also provided a single system for inbound and outbound process management. Then we allowed sophisticated analysis of data, process execution support, root cause analysis, etc. Insights into the data were provided through descriptive names, definitions, and tabs to boost website performance and reduce downtime. Also, we provided for third-party logistics management, freight orders management, and in-transit goods management. Once the development and testing part was settled, we took to search engine optimization for better search engine rankings.
