Customer profile

Since being established in 1981, Broadway Transport has been dedicated to serving the healthcare sector with logistics solutions that are responsive, reliable and competitive.

Challenge

“Many of our challenges at the time were based around the need for an integrated solution,” says Darren Gittins, General Manager of Broadway Transport. “The products we were using at the time required users to access multiple programs that operated independently from one another. A new system had to meet all our needs in one integrated solution.”

In terms of functionality, Broadway Transport were looking for a solution that eased the burden of route planning whilst at the same time enabling users to maximise vehicle efficiency.

Their existing system could no longer meet their needs. “We were unable to integrate our warehousing and transport operations into one package with our old system.” The legacy system that they were using had been upgraded, bolted on to and added to over the years and had become cumbersome to use on a day to day basis.

“We realised that we needed a fully integrated solution that would streamline our day to day activities – one that could provide route planning, cost capture, GPS tracking, reporting and analysis tools, web ordering, EPOD and flexible pricing functionality that would enable us to automate our many and varied rate cards.” says Darren.

Solution

In addition to the wish list of functionality, the solution had to be competitively priced while also being scalable in order to meet their future growth plans as well as being easy to use.

“The Vigo system was much more user friendly than our previous software and offered greater functionality in terms of reporting, pricing and planning. We felt that the company had a personal feel about it and, over time, we were able to build strong working relationships with individual members of the Vigo support teams and management, relationships which are still strong some 6 years on from our initial implementation.”

Results

“The Vigo system has enabled us to better control and measure our performance, capture our costs and improve our efficiency. We have greater visibility of our daily operations and can report on historic activity with ease. Our customers benefit from our ability to offer online job booking and EPOD.”

“We have seen an improvement in the efficiency of our load building and have sped up the administrative processes through automation of pricing and POD capture/reporting. The business now also benefits from better management reporting and performance measurement since implementing Vigo TMS.”

Darren also believes that the Vigo solution has given Broadway Transport a competitive advantage.  “We are able to offer our customers a comprehensive set of value adding solutions such as web ordering, system integration through EDI, online tracking and EPOD, all of which improve the customer experience.”
