When businesses realize they’re in need of a new approach when it comes to the way they interact with technology, it is important for contractors to remember there are systems already put in place. What terrifies companies is the possibility of a complete overhaul, in favor of an entirely new infrastructure which requires a learning curve they can’t afford to take the time to learn. Any contractor worth their salt ought to understand this concern, which is why Lannister Development does our very best to do what we do in a cooperative and non-destructive manner.


Our consultants sit down with executives, most commonly CEOs and CTOs, and break down piece by piece what is required and what isn’t. Let us look at a plausible scenario in which a company focusing on logistics and supply chain could use a reimagining of their technological layout. The most important part of their business is being able to track where things have come from to where they’re going in a user-friendly environment. Chances are we can create a solution that makes the most of blockchain or any other distributed network to cater to that need.


Whenever we create a blockchain platform, we want it to communicate with existing infrastructure the client does not want replaced. Going back to the needs of logistics and supply chain, another important aspect of the business concerns payment upon delivery. By implementing new practices through the blockchain environment, we can timestamp and authorize payments made, and make that information transparent through the tracking software the client already possesses. This allows the client to interact with systems they are already very familiar with in a way that provides more information than what was readily available before. It should be obvious why integration is a good strategy regarding technological transition – above all, we want a company to be more productive, not stuck in some kind of digital void while the competition is passing them by.


Perhaps the most important part of development may not have to do technology in a direct sense. We also come up with new ways to allow businesses to become more accountable, expedient, and beneficial for the people who rely on their services. Too often, we have seen cases of bacterial outbreaks in the food we consume. If blockchain technology is applied to tracking systems with the logistics and supply chain industry, the ledger will show exactly where the affected product came from and where the same product is going in real time. What once took a week to figure out is now completed in seconds. A company that realizes it is carrying dangerous product can inform the source farm and associated transport vehicles to halt all production and transit of the product, saving many potential lives in the process. As blockchain developers, we don’t care for middlemen very much, but we can certainly understand the need for them in this context. If we can make logistics and supply chain the saving grace within a potential disaster – so much the better.

As we see, development is a holistic approach that ought to be adding onto what is already in the client’s hands. By scaling services, we remove the possibility of wading through a cavalcade of nonsense only to produce a single worthwhile idea. It’s not worth the client’s time, it’s not worth the people’s time, and it’s not worth our time. Lannister Development sees a future where time is put to good use through the benefits of decentralized, transparent information – and if a client sees that same future, we will work towards it together.
