Harman Haulage improves job planning with new software

Harman Haulage says it has cut its invoicing and job planning time by more than a half after implementing a new cloud-based job management tool.

The new Mandata Now system has been designed for smaller haulage companies to help allocate jobs, vehicles and drivers.

Luke Saywell, Harman Haulage director, explained: “We needed a solution that would help organise our haulage company. One system that would allow us to book and price jobs, plan and allocate them to my vehicles and drivers with the ability to send them the work by email or phone – or even print them. When the work had been done, we wanted to be able to scan in the POD and save it in the same system so it could be emailed to the customer with the invoice as well as being stored and most importantly, remain organised.”

“Managing numerous customers and jobs is no longer a problem,” Saywell added.

“We can store all my customers in the system – including their individual invoicing requirements, as well as my regularly visited locations, so booking jobs in has never been easier or quicker. Invoicing used to take accounts at least half a day and tasks that used to take half an hour, now only take 5 minutes and the system does all the invoicing in seconds.”

The mixed fleet operates on general haulage, as well as homecare, furniture and retail returns in the Nottinghamshire area as well as additional work for customers throughout the UK. The new software system has apparently cut down on errors and reduced delays as well as making life a lot easier.
