BigChange – the developer of a web-based platform that combines business software, mobile apps, fleet management and vehicle tracking in one simple to use system – has unveiled a new app for producing useful business performance information on transport and service operations.
BigChange Analytics uses supercomputing power to turn everyday operational information into easy to understand business performance ratings and key performance indicators.
BigChange Analytics draws data from BigChange's JobWatch Mobile Workforce and Transport Management system. The app features five 'ready to go' modules: Sales and Marketing, Resource Productivity, Financial, Risk Management and Fleet Management, and can process information from other operational systems. BigChange also offers a bespoke service, delivered by its professional business analysts who will build tailored reporting, KPIs and dashboards to drive superior return on investment.
BigChange founder and CEO Martin Port explained, "Businesses can be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of data that is generated from systems across their business. We've designed BigChange Analytics to do all the hard work, so that managers understand what their data actually means, giving them the intelligence to make decisions that will instantly improve their business performance."
JobWatch integrates driver and delivery management with vehicle tracking, proof of delivery, satellite navigation and messaging services, typically on rugged touchscreen tablets. It allows businesses of all sizes to eliminate paperwork, reduce operational costs and monitor driver behaviour. Simple dashboards utilising easy to use 'drag and drop' technology allow anyone to analyse their data. The Analytics app automatically uncovers trends and patterns, focusing attention on areas that require management attention. Absolutely no complex programming or setup is required.
For transport operators, JobWatch also facilitates quick, simple and accurate scheduling and planning of jobs and deliveries, enabling operators to increase productivity and maximise billable time. Planning and scheduling can be done in real-time, since the dynamic scheduling software constantly updates the plan based on real life information. JobWatch touch-screen devices include in-cab removable tablets and mobile devices for voice and data communications, all live linked to JobWatch and providing a full suite of fleet management and operational management apps.
