The pandemic has forced CXOs across all business units to digitally transform their processes. And why not?

Digitalization automates all your manual processes, saves time, reduces costs, improves efficiency, contributes positively to the top-line – growth-oriented CXOs recognize this. 

Think about it –

Your accounts team does not use a calculator & paper to compute profit 
Your sales team does not note down the order details on a paper
And if you want to communicate some information, do you send a letter by post from your corporate office in one city to your factory in another?

Even though logistics is very volatile, uncertain, unorganized, and competitive than ever before, and coupled with the ever-rising demand for economic growth – the logistics sector is in the process of undeniable digital transformation. 

Digital transformation consolidates your logistics processes making them 300% more efficient & optimized, opening up 60% of your bandwidth, and ensuring on-time delivery to your customers.

In today’s economy, companies that are thriving share something in common – a digitized logistics process that contributes to the top-line.

How can you achieve this?

Meet customer demands & Increase your sales

Here is a scenario for you to consider:

John wants to buy 2 bags of cement (feel free to imagine your product here while reading). He walks into the nearest hardware store and has pre-decided to buy your brand but unfortunately, it is out of stock. Will he wait until your product reaches the retailer? No. He will buy the next available brand. 

This scenario will hold good for any off-the-shelf products such as FMCG, electrical goods, and commodities like sugar, wheat, rice, cement, TMT bars, etc. 

Your logistics team needs to ensure that your product is always available for John whenever he needs it  – product availability is the key to increasing sales.

How can you achieve this with 0% additional marketing-sales costs or infrastructure costs?

More than 50% of your time is spent sourcing vehicles from the spot market, this includes:

Calling transporters to check availability
Back and forth negotiations with them
Finalizing the transporter
Getting confirmation with vehicle & driver details

Digitization of this entire process frees up more than 60% of your team’s total bandwidth:

80% of the phone calls to your transporters is reduced
67% faster reach to transporters
25% faster vehicle finalization
7-11% higher vehicle availability
20 – 25% reduction in order-dispatch time
5 – 7% more sales
300% improvement in productivity

Now, your team can concentrate on fulfilling more sales orders and the icing on the cake – all orders delivered on time.
