A fortnight's trial was enough to show that mobile data, captured by a Tabral app and transmitted live to managers and back office staff, was the way to go. So, all the company's remaining drivers were equipped with tablets, shown how to use the app (which didn't take long), and sent out on the road. Docket books were retired.
Using Tabral, Schick has built a time sheet app that is easy for all Schick employees to complete whether in the field or office. They take a minute or two to record the hours they've worked, using job codes and site information from drop down menus. This time sheet data is then delivered to Schick's system via the mobile network.
Before soil can be turned, ACL project managers meet with landowners to perform a range of checks and assessments, take photos and record site data. ACL now uses a Tabral app to compile this information, turning a stack of paperwork into a simple, one-step process.
The goals were to reduce paperwork by guys in the field, reduce the handling of paper in the office and make it all easy and streamlined.
