Learn about how Composting NZ streamlined their business and made invoicing a breeze with the help of MyTrucking
It’s a family affair for this lower North Island business. Founded by Charlotte and Brendon Mallia 25 years ago, their children James and Georgia have now joined them in the business. From small beginnings after Brendon watched a TV programme about a composting operation in Auckland and decided the trucks and diggers looked like fun, Composting NZ now has four branches of Landscape Garden Supply Yards – Masterton, Hutt Valley, Plimmerton and home base on the Kapiti Coast.
The branches double as green waste receiving yards and landscaping yards. As well, they have a commercial green waste shredder that travels around the lower North Island processing green waste at landfills/transfer stations for different councils, they also cart agri-chip for farmers.
“Ring up a truck and go ‘oh my god’ can you fit this in? We were missing things and as we were growing it all got a bit chaotic. It was frustrating for the drivers too. MyTrucking came along at an opportune time to smooth things out,” Charlotte says.
“We could see we needed something that could show us where our trucks were, what they were doing, and what they had lined up for the day. With MyTrucking we realised wow, we can programme where we want our trucks to go, one person can run it and it’s made our lives a lot easier.”
“We were told about it by another company who were using it. James Mallia got the guys from MyTrucking in to see us, and we set it up there and then. It’s been a blessing.
We liked they were local, in Masterton, and a New Zealand company. They’ve been really great to deal with if we have any problems, and it’s a very simple system to use.”
“It probably took an hour to set it up, it was basically all done within half a day, and you don’t need to be a genius to use it.”
“Capturing our data on what our trucks are doing. Invoicing. I actually love the whole system, I would recommend it to anyone, and we do. It’s just streamlined everything and brought us into the 21st century with technology. It’s been great.”
“The invoicing out of MyTrucking has saved me hours and hours of work, and following up with truck drivers asking for their paperwork. With the app the job comes through immediately. I literally spend five minutes doing invoicing once a week, it’s just brilliant.
The other big one is co-ordinating the trucks. It’s so easy, anyone can go online and it has streamlined that side of the business. Anyone can see – what are we doing today, can we fit anything else in?”
