Abstract

The use of mobile applications has become a relevant transactional component within an organization. For this reason, a mobile information system for route management was developed within the heavy transport company Torres Revelo S.A, based on the agile SCRUM development methodology and the MEAN Stack and Ionic framework based on JavaScript. In this project, it was subjected to a usability test based on the ISO / IEC 25010 standard, taking intelligibility, learning, operability, protection against user errors, aesthetics, and accessibility as references. A 26-question questionnaire was used with the Nielsen method, applying to a total of 73 users throughout the prototype-based application development process. By tabulating the results obtained, the chi-square test was applied to determine that the mobile and web application is easy to use, learn, and allow the user to trace the shortest route. These processes allow for better information management within the company.
