Currently, for business owners of Logistics SMEs to understand how their company is performing, they have to manually calculate the values pertaining to Delivery Fulfilment Rate using information from VersaFleet(our client's main application) and other hard-copy documents. This process is tedious with the many sources and values present. As the information is computed manually, the information derived is prone to human errors and thus inaccurate.
In addition, the logistics industry is highly competitive, thus, the logistics SMEs have to constantly review their business operations to maintain a competitive edge. Moreover, with e-commerce gaining traction, manual reporting done on a monthly or yearly basis is unable to fulfill the reporting demands of e-commerce. Finally, to clinch deals with more reputable companies, data evidence supports logistics SMEs' promises of timely deliveries.
