R&G Logistics achieved significant time saving advantages after rolling out new cloud transport management technology, TMS Go.
The Wednesbury-based logistics company adopted the TMS Go system from software provider Mandata 12 months ago, in a move to simplify its financial processes and cut administration.
The firm has subsequently reported 80% reduction in the time taken to complete its invoicing.
More than 100 invoices are now processed and issued by one person in less than an hour thanks to Mandata’s technology. Previously, using a paper-based system, two people would take upwards of five hours a day to expedite a similar volume of work.
Upwards of 700 jobs per month are currently processed by the system, making it easier to manage workloads and save “huge” chunks of time.
R&G Logistics’ managing director and owner Ross Flynn (pictured) said: “It’s a very capable, easy-to-use tool; ideal for independent operators like us,” he said. “It’s a big improvement on how we previously did our invoicing. Now, one person is able to do the work of two people, in a fifth of the time.
“A feature that allows us to allocate a PO number to every job, ensuring orders are properly and duly processed, is also particularly beneficial in transport operations and helping to reduce billing queries.”
The capability to connect directly to Sage and other accountancy software providing automatic updates as well as electronic proof of delivery via the Manifest app will be “beneficial” to R&G Logistics as they roll out new technology over the coming months.
“The ability to quickly add or remove information at the touch of a button is proving easy and extremely useful, particularly during peak periods of operation,” said Flynn.
