A lot of ‘on-demand’ companies have cropped up in the recent past. Drivers, carpenters, beauticians, plumbers etc, are just an app away. Managing the human workforce of these companies is quite a task. It involves coordination across multiple levels and is becoming increasingly complex for companies to handle their vast operations.
A services company that is revolutionizing the way used cars are sold in India works with a lot of drivers who are responsible for picking up and dropping cars to customers. A person from the head office usually coordinates with these drivers via SMS, emails, or calls to guide the drivers on their daily operations.
This company, which has operations in about 60 cities, onboarded Locus to streamline its logistics operations and last-mile delivery.
Locus helped the company bring in efficiency by optimizing its driver movement. This reduced their driver count by 30%. Apart from this, Locus ensured that the drivers knew their first service point, every day, without the need to coordinate with the head office.
Locus’ automated route planner and driver allocation software ensures that the first service point is always close to the driver's home so as to save on the traveling time. Locus also captures the distance traveled, as this is crucial for reimbursing the drivers. Additionally, the Electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD) is captured too, which later serves as proof, during claims.
