For years, SafeTrac has been helping you to keep track of your assets and vehicles. Now, we want to help you keep a track on your delivery’s. Working with Maxoptra we can now do this.
At Maxoptra we are very excited to announce our partnership with Geotab; a global leader in IoT and connected transportation. Geotab via its reseller Safetrac, offer tracking capabilities which help Fleet Managers’ to improve productivity, safety and ELD compliance with the use of big data.
Our newly integrated solution leverages vehicle and tracking data collected via Geotab to provide Fleet Managers’ with sought-after intelligence on journey routes and times, data and fuel consumption, driver behaviour and vehicle maintenance. All to further improve operating efficiency and boost customer service.
Both systems are powerful in their own right, but when combined users can really boost their distribution performance. Let’s look at some of the Maxoptra features that work best when partnered with Geotab and Safetrac:
Maxoptra automates the process of route creation and optimisation; taking into account traffic conditions, known roadworks, vehicle capacities, live order volumes and delivery time windows. This can reduce excess mileage and cut operations costs by up to 20%.
A Driver App runs off drivers’ mobile phones, giving you the benefits of real time job notification, live reporting and proof of delivery peace of mind, including barcode scanning, signature and photo capture. The Driver App is a great addition for operators who want to run a paperless operation while, at the same time, getting all the benefits of customer ETA notifications and ePod functionality.
Track and Trace
Track and Trace can be used to specifically monitor each drivers’ performance relating to completed jobs, missed jobs, correct sequence and so on. With the ability to produce ‘planned vs actual’ results, you can determine real-life routes taken by your employees versus optimised routes.
Proactively send out advanced email and SMS ETA notifications to regularly keep your customers informed. Customers can also keep themselves updated via your own Website Widget and Facebook Bot. For added peace of mind for both you and your customer, our ePod app allows drivers to log proof of delivery signatures and photos and comments.
So, what does all of this functionality actually mean for the user? We have found that there are four key challenges that our customers frequently experience which this integration can address:
Safetrac with Geotab directly addresses this challenge using driver behaviour data to ensure the efficiency of staff. However, with Maxoptra you can utilise this data to plan even more effectively; ensuring better productivity per vehicle.
Additionally, the ability to automate routes within the system means a reduction in paper-based plans, reducing your costs and also helping the environment!
Keep customers happy
When combined with the real time location information from Safetrac, Maxoptra can offer accurate time windows and you can be confident that your vehicles will be arriving on time.
You can further benefit this functionality by offering your customers accurate ETA notifications that can be sent out via email and SMS.
Again, the driver behaviour and vehicle capacity information that Safetrac and Geotab collects allows companies to monitor whether compliance regulations are being regularly met. With Safetrac this information can be taken to the next level, as businesses are able to plan routes that can be achieved based on available driver hours. Additionally, you can ensure that basic compliance criteria, such as vehicle weight, is frequently being met.
Reduce fuel consumption
Safetrac with Geotab collects real life operational data which allows Maxoptra to produce an optimal plan that maximises fuel consumption and reduces both empty running and wasted mileage. Quite simply put, by automating optimised routes and monitoring the results, your fleet will be covering less miles and using less fuel. Once again, this is cost effective for you and more environmentally friendly!
