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.
Rural Transport's drivers tend to be based in remote regions. Infrequent trips back to the company's offices meant relying on phone calls to communicate vital information. Faced with this information gap, Rural Transport approached its software supplier and asked if there was a simple, smart way to get real-time information to and from drivers in the field via the tablets the company was installing in its trucks.
