How was the workflow previously managed?
“Initially we were using diaries, paper and phone calls to manage our work. Prior to MyTrucking we had moved into the technology arena, using an electronic calendar and text messages. This brought about its own issues with somewhat one way communication.”
What issues needed to be resolved?
“We needed to limit the loss of paperwork, and the time taken to get job details returned, and improve our efficiencies on dispatch and the back office.”
Combined Haulage joined MyTrucking in August 2016
• Dispatch and comms with drivers difficult
• Hours of lost time in the back office chasing down jobs
• Invoicing late or not all
• More time to do the things that matter
• Back office has more time to focus on efficiencies across the business
• Invoicing is a breeze
“One of our drivers showed us what he was using for another client, so we did some research and gave MyTrucking a go. At the same time, we investigated another system that was way too complicated and expensive. MyTrucking, on the other hand, was simple to use and extremely cost effective.”
How easy was it switching to MyTrucking?
“The changeover to MyTrucking was so easy, we consider ourselves MyTrucking salespeople now, as we just don’t understand how people can do without it.”
Where has MyTrucking helped most?
“In general more time across the business, enabling us to focus on other efficiencies knowing we have this part under control.”
What are the key benefits that MyTrucking provides??
• The Daysheet view
• Integration with Xero
• Dispatching is easier as it has really helped us control the interaction with our drivers.
• The drivers love it as it is so simple to use
• Efficiencies have been evident across the fleet, dispatching, and the back office
