Logistics Referential: a Web App for humanitarian missions in fields without internet connection
A long-standing project that, close to other technologies, has Plone in the heart as backoffice for content management.
The customer is OCG, one of the five operational centers of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
Addressing OCG-specific humanitarian-logistics knowledge, the Logistics Referential online/offline platform aims to efficiently
organize and classify concepts, objects and their relationships, thereby providing simplified, prompt and accurate access and retrieval to any relevant and required logistics knowledge.
The knowledge base is built on top of more than 1000 English books, most of them translated in French, Spanish and Arabic. The offline version is updated whenever an internet connection is available and provides the same contents and functionalities of the online version.
During the talk I will share a description of the main features, the choices about the technologies involved (NW.js, Plone, Amazon Web Services), success and failures, lessons learned and objectives for the future.
