Sachs Trans needs an integrated program to manage its transport orders comprehensively and efficiently. Due to the large scale of its operations, the company handles thousands of documents every day. Therefore, it expects a solution which will collect all data in one place and enable the employees of various departments to perform their duties: logisticians, HR planners, accountants. The system must ensure smooth communication between dispatchers and drivers. It should eliminate the need to fill in spreadsheets, optimise the work in terms of time savings and enable the control of transport-related finances.
