While visitors to the stand were interested to see demonstrations of the products, as Sergio Barata, Head of EMEA at Telogis explains; “This is a mature marketplace saturated with telematics and route optimisation systems. What people were most interested in was talking about how our customers are using the solutions, rather than seeing a demonstration of a vanilla product on the stand. In particular people wanted to hear about business benefits other organisations had achieved, particularly around increasing productivity, managing customer experience with planned v actual and driver behaviour and safety.”
Sergio Barata continued; “Intriguingly people were not so interested in seeing the system working on an iPad or tablet, they all assumed that any new system would work on the latest form factors. This is a prime example of a mature market where most organisations are looking to optimise their operations with a more integrated approach to their mobile assets. Rather than keeping silos of information separate, many of the organisations we have been speaking to are looking at a fleet management system that is fully integrated with route and traffic ensuring that vehicles are used most efficiently. When this is combined with job allocation and workforce planning, and with powerful reporting and dashboards that deliver an ‘at a glance’ live situation, organisations can really start to make huge improvements to the customer experience, while improving productivity and ensuring compliance with environmental and staff safety legislation.
“This approach has been the norm for several years now in the US, we are delighted to see that the UK and EMEA markets are now starting to approach the management of mobile assets looking to leverage location intelligence in the same way.”
