Logistics verticals have a major challenge in the form of human error. With millions of pieces of data running through supply chains every day, errors can have instant and far reaching effects. This is a challenge that spans multiple industries, but rugged tablets can help streamline processes, improve accuracy, and minimize errors.
More than 8.7 million workers are employed by the U.S. trucking industry, and trucking still overwhelmingly takes up the lion’s share of domestic goods transport, including retail products, raw materials, and industrial equipment. With a rugged tablet, shipments can be tracked, schedules monitored, and routes updated in real time for the best possible speed and accuracy. Inventory on each truck can also be verified and human error reduced in regard to hours of operation, maintenance of vehicles, and compliance with safety regulations.
Trains comes in second in the U.S when it comes to transport of materials and manufactured goods, and also contributes heavily to the transportation of people. A rugged tablet can help deliveries run on time, onloading and offloading be streamlined and more accurate, and engine maintenance efficiently scheduled and tracked. Car management, track switching, refueling and more can be authorized and monitored with communication between conductors, engineers, and other key personnel.
People, luggage, goods, materials, troops and more fly the skies every day and accuracy is paramount to avoid issues that could cause customer dissatisfaction and physical problems related to mechanics and load bearing capacity.
Tablets can be utilized to manage luggage, update gate information, and track fleet maintenance and repairs effectively. Mistakes can be avoided, and information shared between employees if there is a potential issue with airplane safety.
Since almost all errors are human generated, increased communication and transparent, shareable data can improve and update how logistics employees do their jobs. Streamlined processes can be achieved with tablets that are user-friendly, customer experiences as well as employee experiences can be improved while the bottom line benefits.
Rugged tablets deliver an upgraded way to complete logistics tasks across all verticals, delivering accuracy that is unmatched by human-only data entry and transfer. When rugged tablets are in the hands of as many logistics workers as possible, customer experience improves, ROI increases, and customers grow happier and more likely to remain loyal.
