Brandix Apparel is the largest garment exporter in Sri Lanka, contributing to over 3% of the country's GDP. The company uses over 1000 vehicles managed by 23 business units to pick up around 20,000 employees on a scheduled basis and to transport staff upon request when they have to travel between the business units, visit customers/suppliers, etc. The company sought an employee transport management solution to facilitate corporate transport management.
Brandix Apparel addressed the Wialon partner, KLOUDIP, Sri Lanka, for an employee transport management solution allowing the garment company to streamline corporate transportation.
The solution consists of the GOFER platform for staff transport management, the Wialon platform for GPS tracking and IoT, and Xirgo FMS500 Light and Concox GV26 trackers installed on all vehicles. This combination offers an impressive list of new features for the client:
KLOUDIP organized training sessions for every client’s business unit distributed across four user types: passengers, managers, dispatchers, and drivers.
The Wialon partner also created training videos to help client’s employees effectively use the employee transport management platform. Users can access them on demand when they need to learn how to use certain GOFER features.
Kloudip introduced a support ticket system to deal with the client’s issues and questions.
The solution provided by KLOUDIP has considerably facilitated corporate transport management for Brandix Apparel. The solution improves not only staff transportation, but all the activities associated with it: booking, optimizing, payments, budgeting, control, and transparency for all the parties involved.
Thanks to rejected unimportant trips, reduced misuse cases, and accurate distance calculation, including the cases when a driver covers fewer kilometers because of absent passengers on scheduled daily trips.
Employee transport management with GOFER includes automatic trip blocking when the costs exceed the budget. Previously, the passengers had to pay drivers even if the trip exceeded the budget.
Managers and dispatchers can access all the trip information via the GOFER employee transport management platform and see if there were any deviations from the routes. Using vehicles for private trips or going over the top with trips is now easily detected and addressed.
No human errors happen as the solution eliminates manual calculations of driver payments by administrative personnel. Driver payments can be made instantly at any time with much less staff.
