Transport Manager Rick Bromley explained the decisions that led Middlebrook to r2c: "We knew we were getting too big for paper based maintenance management systems but didn't know which software providers to turn to. We contacted six different companies and r2c was by far the best - the platform was the most intuitive and user-friendly. It was clear from the outset that r2c are specialists in the sector and that expertise shines through in the product and support.
"Now, we definitely wouldn't go back. Our compliance manager Tony used to spend far too much time chasing service sheets, r2c's now saving him on average 15 hours a week, so our team can focus on the important stuff rather than general admin jobs."
As the business maintained growth, Middlebrook needed a digital system to improve visibility between the fleet and their in-house workshop. Rick continued, "The admin time savings are just one of many benefits of r2c: everything is quicker and easier, we can see when services are due, we have live job status updates from the workshop floor helping to minimise downtime, and our compliance visibility has improved, helping us receive FORS recognition."
Thanks to better maintenance and asset control using r2c, Middlebrook Transport have now achieved FORS Gold. Rick further added, "Duplication of work is now being prevented, which alone saves us over £3,000 a year. The customer service is great too - just phone them up and they're happy to help. We can't recommend r2c enough."

Nick Walls, Managing Director at r2c Online, commented, "It's great to hear the fantastic benefits Rick and the team at Middlebrook have experienced so quickly after joining r2c. Our platform has created one best practice standard across the entire supply chain, allowing fleets of all sizes across the UK and Ireland to improve compliance and communication with both internal workshops and external repair networks."
