In fact, we should all like it quite a lot...
Given that 89% or all goods are transported by land in Great Britain along with 98% of all food and agriculture products, there is a worrying lack of support and interest in the Transport/Logistics sector, for what is literally the lifeblood of industry flowing along arterial routes and roads.
As an industry employing 2.54million people and contributing 124Bn GVA to the UK economy, there is no wonder it’s becoming increasingly IT-driven, especially with a deficit of circa 45-50k drivers and concerns over the looming Brexit.
A number of solutions exist for dedicated transport software covering the loads, routing and dispatch of vehicles to maximise the available resources, but there are many other processes that can also be enhanced to round out your business package and maximise profits and time savings.
Ranging from intelligent ticket capture for Bibby Distribution through to HR tracking and compliance for RIX Petroleum, IT@Spectrum have a number of solutions that can strengthen your position within the logistics sector allowing you to concentrate on the real transport issues.
On top of storing automatically captured documents (with validation against live job data), our solutions can help monitor driver certificates and compliance requirements through HR focussed workflows. Proactive tasks will then ensure timely reminders prompt for easily missed annual renewals and compliance deadlines such as CPC training.
To round out our package we can also offer digital forms that cover simple, repetitive (yet essential) tasks, such as vehicles checks (including photographs and formal signature sign offs) through to smart looking sign on glass delivery note capture.
Ultimately, not only will our solutions help with current pain points, you can prove due diligence and investment in people and processes to reassure those potentially elusive new recruits.
In a world of increasing regulations and ever tighter margins, should any of the above sound of interest, give us a call and see how IT@Spectrum can help MOVE your IT(!) portfolio forwards.
