Development of multifunctional assistant in React Native technology
Application development has become a key factor for fast and efficient operations, but also for the competitiveness of companies - especially in fast-changing and growing industries such as logistics. In this environment, changes and demanding requirements occur daily, making it essential to have flexible tools at hand for both application development and maintenance. React Native is precisely the tool that helps create a multi-functional assistant for logistics. What are its greatest benefits? Let's look at them together.
React Native: the perfect development for logistics
The main advantage of React Native is its ability to write flexible code that can be deployed on both key platforms - Android and iOS. Writing code only once is a huge advantage that saves time and significantly reduces development and maintenance costs by up to 45% compared to native development. In logistics, where it's essential to react flexibly to changes and keep the apps constantly updated, such savings are downright crucial.
React Native is ideal because it offers a number of tools for rapid development (e.g. hot-reloading), a strong community, and a rich ecosystem of libraries and features to make the development process remarkably easy. Although the apps built in React Native may have lower performance than native apps, for most logistic solutions the difference doesn't matter at all.
Tracking shipments, scheduling, or managing inventory, whatever you need. React Native can handle a wide range of basic and complex operations. It can certainly compete successfully with any other powerful software.

Expo: A tool or a godsend?
Another powerful feature of React Native is the Expo tool. Not familiar with it yet? Big mistake! Expo isa set of custom tools and services built around React. It helps developers quickly build and deliver apps for both Android and iOS platforms.
And that's not all!
Expo is an open tool that won't let you down when simplifying access to device features (such as location or notifications) from a single code for both platforms.
Moreover, we've already mentioned hot-reloading, which Expo fully supports! As a result, any changes to the code are immediately visible in the final application without the need to recompile. And the effect? A significant reduction in development time.
However, the benefits don't stop there. Additionally, Expo includes:
Easy upload of apps directly to the App store and Google Play,
access to the new EAS feature to create builds for testers,
presence of a wide set of tools to make development more enjoyable in all aspects.
At Dactyl Group, we can't get enough of Expo and use it to speed up most applications - whenever the development allows it.
