The Business Challenge:
A mid-sized logistics company based in the middle-eastern region provides transportation and logistics services to the grocery stores on daily basis and manages a fleet of over 150 vehicles. Company was losing money on their day-to-day operations as they were running a legacy system to manage fleets and business operations. There was no transparency in vehicle locations, routes, contracts and insurance claims as there were neither automated reminders nor real-time updates. Company wanted a system that is extremely reliable and affordable as they did not have large budget and they can’t afford to spend few hundred thousand dollars on proprietary software.
ODOO Fleet management $9/user/month – Private CLOUD by Advanton Inc. – Free Customization
ADVANTON Inc. suggested Odoo Fleet management due to its open architecture, zero license costs and fully integrated modules that offer single window for automating entire logistics operations and fleet management. After thorough analysis of the business processes and analyzing the gaps in the existing legacy software, ADVANTON prepared an analysis report that highlighted all the loop holes of the existing system. In the first phase we custom developed the Fleet Management module of the Odoo based on the company’s procedures to operate over 150 vehicles. The owners of the vehicles are also given access to the system through separate logins to get periodic updates on expenses, distance covered and insurance claims/renewals that were well integrated into the Fleet Management Module.
The integration with Google Maps enabled the company to keep a close eye on vehicle locations in real-time. It also enabled the company to optimize routes during the next run, optimize fuel consumption and locate directions in a better way.
The company was able to get insights in the form of reports and was able to cut costs, reduce fuel wastage and saved over 23% in annual running costs.
ADVANTON Inc. is now working on automating the warehouse operations for the company that will help the company in reducing errors and inventory losses during shifting and transportation.
