Driving Improved Productivity, Cost Savings And Customer Service Is The Focus Of Magenta’s Summer Release Of Maxoptra
LONDON, June 2013. The latest release of Maxoptra, Magenta’s cloud based distribution planning solution, available from June, helps customers increase productivity and reduce operating costs by exploiting further the hidden value of comparing schedules planned with the actual movements of GPS equipped vehicles.
Supplementing the integral real time track and trace dashboard (which enables users to see in real time the adherence of vehicles to routes), is a new suite of management reports enabling users to analyse driver performance against planned schedule and service level adherence for each customer. These reports will make it easy for users to identify specifically where improvements can be made to achieve plan compliance.
Additional functionality includes a full screen map workspace with full drag and drop capability for transport companies who prefer manual allocation of loads to vehicles. This brings the benefits of a planning and scheduling solution to customers who have previously not been able to use a scheduling solution because of the inability to estimate consignment capacities.
Stuart Brunger, Magenta’s Head of Business Development said “Both planning systems and telematics solutions are widely adopted and their benefits are universally acknowledged. However, in terms of continuous improvement, the extra value fleet operators need to drive additional productivity, cost savings and improved customer service is to be found by automatically comparing scheduled plans with what the driver actually did on the day and the learning and improvements which comes from this. This latest release enables our customers to access this information quickly and easily”.
