Is your business all about delivery of products and goods? By delivery I mean physically delivering products to your customers on their job sites.I know this process of physically moving the products and delivering to the right place is not simple as it includes time and cost. But when you know you can utilise the advanced technologies and services that can meet your business and clients expectations, then why not implement such services?
When you work in a smart way by utilising the advanced and upgraded technologies you will be able to increase productivity, save time and can invest more time in the business for new developments.
When we think about Quarry and Concrete Industry there comes a lot of rules and regulations to adhere to and follow. Productivity in this industry highly depends on the time truck spends on the site, how fast the materials are moved in and out and many which can be easily covered by a mobile solution for a Quarry.
Environmental forces have a direct impact on this business process. This means the transportation of material through trucks can face major problems and productivity of the business can be decreased.
You might now want to know how to avoid these problems right?
Don’t worry! I will not tell you to do more hard work, increase employee rate et cetera but would ask you to tackle such problems in a smart way by utilizing the technologies available in the market.
Have you heard about a mobile solution for a Quarry fully integrated with your ERP Software?
ERP stands for Enterprise Resources Planning which is a software used in complex industries to make their business management process simple. The business information which you would want on your fingertips can be viewed in real time. By installing ERP Software you will have access to live information about your business processes, can track your vehicle (truck) which will be on roads, check credit history of the customers before preparing sales order and many.
Through measurable efficiencies, you will be able to minimize any potential negative impact by tightly controlling all traffic and essential equipment use.
How can a mobile solution for a Quarry integrated with your ERP Software benefit you?
With an ERP Software, your teams will be able to coordinate deliveries and ensure there are no backlogs or backups at the job sites. With the touch of a finger on a mobile device, the full status of the materials delivery is available, including the current location, name of the driver and a photo of where the materials were delivered!
Access to real-time information:
Being up to date with your materials and customer information is essential. This not only indicates you know what you are doing, it prevents duplicate orders, missed orders or requests and allows you to have that up to the minute intelligence your customers want (and expect) you to have. When your ERP is centralised, well managed and current, you place a powerful tool in your team’s hands!
Incorporating traditionally off-line information:
In the past, your team have been burdened with a plethora of paper file folders, clipboards with relevant information on them. They would have to wait until they got to their laptop or back into the office to provide updates. Imagine having a tablet, connected to your central database where they can input information on the go!
Improved project management:
Project management tasks need to be aligned exactly to the plan. The plan and the scope of the plan ensures you remain on time and on budget throughout the lifespan of any project. With comprehensive data on hand all the time, you PMs will be able to share their progress with lateral teams and subcontractors who rely on their ability to deliver materials when required.
Materials and delivery intelligence:
From end-to-end, have all the information you need to manage the materials you are either processing or delivering. Knowing the volumes you are managing, where they are to go and how they can be delivered in conjunction with construction schedules will allow you to ensure you do not have trucks waiting at a job site or materials not yet on delivery holding up the schedule on a project. Just because you have a mobile solution for a Quarry fully integrated with your ERP now it will be possible.
