Builders needed a way to monitor the vehicles coming into their yard area to collect their purchases and how long it takes. Vehicle Identification needed to be confirmed when entering and exiting the Yard area.
We provided them with a simple, yet powerful software and hardware solution to keep track of the movement in the yard area.
When a vehicle enters the the yard area they scan the license disc with a mobile device or manually input the license plate number. This will start a timer to show the time they spent inside. An email notification will be sent to management when the vehicle spends a predefined time inside according to the reason for entry.
When the vehicle exits they can select the appropriate vehicle from the list of license plates and remove it from the list.
Informative reports show KPI stats at a glance as well as trended information by date, period, and location.
Reports are generated on a daily, weekly, monthly or as frequently as required and sent via email or viewed on our web dashboard. This aggregated information gives management valuable information to strategically maintain exceptional service levels at all times.
Our partnership with Builders Warehouse has provided them with valuable tools and customer insights into their business and daily operations.
They could now see how long customers are waiting and have a secure overview of their yard area. Head office could compare performance of each store and how each yard layout impacts the flow.
