PHOENIX – BevOps Fleet Summit – April 16, 2013 — Telogis introduces Telogis for Food & Beverage, a comprehensive cloud-based enterprise software suite targeting food and beverage companies. Telogis leveraged its years of food and beverage industry experience and its in-house industry experts to address customer demand for solutions for their mobile workforces that increase productivity and visibility into day-to-day operations.
Telogis for Food & Beverage includes everything a company needs to manage their delivery, service, sales and merchandising workforces – from dispatch and telematics to route optimization, commercial navigation and work order management. Telogis for Food & Beverage is the only SaaS-based platform that provides industry-specific solutions for direct delivery, retail/wholesale, vending and food service companies. The Telogis platform, on which the Food & Beverage solution is built, is one of the most scalable and reliable in the marketplace, supporting customers' evolving needs.
Telogis for Food & Beverage allows companies to make a profound and permanent change in their day-to-day operations by providing operational leads with actionable information in real time on how each route is being run, and solving the pain points and issues that are unique to the food and beverage industry. Field managers are now able to compare the planned stop sequence and customer service time against what is actually happening in the field, resulting in improved efficiencies and saved time and money.
“Providing true route management is about so much more than just driver and asset location,” said Newth Morris, co-founder and president, Telogis Route and Navigation. “By incorporating delivery and merchandising activities, you're now able to make more informed decisions about staffing, assets and how you can more easily meet the needs of your customers.”
In addition to route compliance, Telogis for Food & Beverage also helps companies design and implement industry-specific safety programs to improve driver behavior and reduce the risk of injuries, accidents and damage to assets. Companies can opt to integrate in-cab alerts that coach drivers automatically while also advising managers of key safety metrics including hard-braking, fast acceleration, speeding and seat belt use.
“As food and beverage fleets are particularly visible on highways, city blocks and neighborhood streets, companies want to be sure drivers are representing their brands and reducing risk by driving safely at all times,” continued Morris. “Through years of industry expertise, the Telogis for Food & Beverage suite of solutions can help companies determine their safety needs, goals and parameters, and then put those programs in place.”
