DEPOT Software is developed with your business challenges and needs in mind
Although as a Tank Container Service Provider you offer an integrated service portfolio, it may well have more than one source of master data, requiring manual and time-consuming re-entry of information. There are too many people involved, too many activities, and too many different Excel spreadsheets ﬂying around. The result, inevitably, is mistakes and confusion.
01 - Breaking the silos
It is essential to build your business on a proven centralized IT-system that supports the operational processes in your niche and maximizes synergy between different departments and different depot sites. Store all information relevant to operational processes in one database, even when it spans different depot sites with different companies on the same site. Minimize the administrative effort to process orders, let the system workflow keep track of the steps a container follows during its stay on the depot yard and work towards a paperless office by eliminating paper endpoints.
As your tank container services increase, you often acquire and absorb new depot sites, ofﬁces and functions. These entities may continue to use their own historical operational and administrative methods, applications and software. This leads to a tangle of varying tools, processes, languages and local formats. Reporting becomes fraught with difﬁculty, especially when the problem is played out across different countries.
02 - Untangle your IT spaghetti
Safeguard process-expertise and domain knowledge information in a singular source, removing the need for any overlapping operational workarounds with a myriad of systems to maintain. Phase out old and inefficient systems.
It’s a given fact, the quantity of your data doubles every two years. This data can be a gold mine for making numerous business critical decisions. The irony is with more data at your disposal, it becomes harder to extract the right information. More data makes operation managers actually feel less in control. When information overload occurs, it very likely leads to a reduction in quality of your decision making processes.
03 - Information overload
Centralized data is the foundation enabling you to have continuous access to accurate and timely information needed to make well-informed decisions and evaluate them after the fact. It is also the foundation to provide future-proof digital channels to all stakeholders, both in the internal process, as well as in the external industrial supply-chain. Start reaping the benefits of centralized BI (Business Intelligence) reporting and centralized digital channels (customer portal, API and EDI connectors) for digital data exchange with your customers.
