Time is money and as business leaders we have an opportunity to transform our operation by driving efficiency throughout it. That opportunity often comes as a result of change.
Since mid-March 2020 many business leaders have re-introduced themselves to the shop-floor, getting much closer to the day-to-day operation than they have done for a while. Pre-Covid they relied on those around them to get the job done.
This change has afforded many managers and directors fresh insight into the day to day running of their operations. With the questions of “why do we do it like this…?” or “why do we do that…?” often heard echoing around the transport offices and warehouse. Business leaders are getting into the weeds of their operation again as they immerse themselves into their current admin, processes and reporting procedures. For some, the transition from Director to Transport Planner and Receptionist has evidenced an efficient and effective operation, however for others they’ve realised there is an opportunity for change.
Here at HaulTech our range of transport management and warehouse management system help transport and warehouse operations to maximise their efficiency by minimising the amount of time people have to be hands-on. People are an essential part of every business and when you reach a point where your operation is stretched to capacity additional headcount is often the next natural step.
But what if it’s your process (and the way you are currently working) that is holding you back?
From the work we do our award-winning technology sees companies transform how they work. Not through changing processes but changing how those processes connect and flow together, seamlessly. This means the job gets done but with far less manual interaction. In a typical business HaulTech’s experience suggests an 80% reduction in data duplication, which in turn sees the same job being done in around 60% of the time.
HaulTech’s range of Transport Management (TMS) and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) are a great example of how two independent, yet intrinsically connected operations, can come together to operate as one. From transport to goods in, from goods in to warehouse, from pick to despatch and from despatch to delivery and invoice HaulTech’s solutions follow a completely connected approach. A job gets entered once (by the company or it’s customer) and from there the process flow is seamless as jobs move from stage to stage as and when trigger points are reached. Everyone in the process is aware of what sits in their ‘responsibility pot’ and when they’ve done their bit a job moves to the next ‘pot’. Simple. And with no duplication or repetition.
So as businesses drive forward (and the economy gets back on track) a change in process/system may be the springboard you need to achieve just that.
