TranSend will enable Tardis to streamline its delivery and collection operation by building and optimising routes, recording job tickets and monitoring the progress of these routes and jobs in real time. This includes electronic proof of delivery and collection, thereby eliminating lost job tickets and ensuring that drivers are carrying out jobs correctly. They will use the TranSend integrated route planning & job management application, running on Motorola TC55 Android devices with built-in scanners.
Tardis operates 60 vehicles covering wet waste collection, portable toilet hire, drainage services, water bowsers, waste tanks and road sweepers. They pride themselves on excellence in service and offer a nationwide service with a 24 hour call out.
TranSend will be used to build and optimise routes based on job details to reduce mileage and better utilise driver time. Drivers will download their allocated route for the day on their handheld device and then follow the prescribed process for deliveries and collections, including any special instructions, such as signatures and photographic evidence.
The TranSend solution provides a web-based back office management portal that will provide Tardis with complete visibility of routes and jobs in progress. Using GPS tracking from the driver’s handheld device, TranSend captures any events and exceptions that occur during the day and also manages driver compliance against their allocated route and jobs.
TranSend Solutions are experienced in the waste water sector and their routing and job management system is an excellent fit for our business ‘out of the box’. By automating ticket validation we will have accurate, real-time data to prove that jobs have been completed correctly.”
“We will be able to create different processes, according to the type of job, to ensure that each job is carried out to our specified standards. It also gives us scope to cover other business areas in the future.”
“TranSend provides us with an integrated route planning and job management from one supplier, which means we have a single point of contact for software, hardware and support. The system is easy to use for both drivers and office staff and will enable us to schedule and complete jobs more efficiently, as well as respond more quickly to our customers."
