LMS celebrates second technology milestone reached
Posted by Danny Corder on Tue 1st December 2015
 
Following successful trials throughout the summer, we are now conducting our planning and DRS completion electronically thanks to an innovative solution developed in-house.
LMS Drive UpgradesAs part of our continuing investment in I.T. to improve service to our customers, we are delighted to announce that we have reached Phase 2 of our tablet rollout.

Throughout the summer, our chargehands have been using mobile-enabled iPad based systems to receive live data for scheduling plus other essential functions such as e-mail and navigation. That scheduling data has been planned electronically for the first time by our Contracts Managers.

The team have also been completing DRS paperwork for customers electronically with signatures being collected on the tablet, similar to the method used by parcel delivery companies.

"I'm delighted that our chargehands and supporting management team have taken to the new system so well. It shows us the potential of this system as we're really just at the start of what we can deliver using these new systems."

Managing Director Paul Winter who has worked closely on the project with Danny is pleased to see the impact the systems have had on customer satisfaction.

"We always knew that our products and services would be greatly enhanced by the right technology. Initial customer feedback from what is essentially just a small part of what we're planning, has been brilliant so I'm excited about what we can achieve next."
