3 Reasons to Digitize your Business

Ger Kissane EMEA Sales Hub Manager

The ability to automate processes and digitize data has a number of benefits associated with removing the risk of human error and the duplication of tasks.  There are however a number of other opportunities presented by digitalization that are perhaps less commonly recognized.

1. Safety

This can start before the vehicle has even left the depot with the system requiring vehicle checks to be completed before the route can be started.  Once on the road, the system can measure driver performance enabling specific issues to be addressed at a debrief or during training if required.

2. Reputation

Drivers across the world are often the face of the business and the main point of interaction between the service provider and the customer.  As a result, there is a lot of benefits in ensuring that they represent the business in an appropriate manner and that they act as ambassadors for your brand.  This may include a need to monitor adherence to the speed limit, understanding de-tours that are being taken, and checking the correct time is spent taking breaks.

3. Saving trees

The digitization of route sheets for drivers and the use of handheld or in-cab devices to record service details enables the whole process to become completely paperless.  As well as reducing the opportunity for errors and duplication, automating the process also means that information can be made available to customer services, finance, or the customer in real-time.
