Logistics company goes paperless

Workflow, mobile app and OCR save 200+ man-days every year by digitising, integrating and automating paper-intensive business processes

The challenge

Amorco Transport, a leading European logistics and a warehousing company, approached Schnell to help with digitisation and integration to improve business efficiency. The key challenges were:

  • Go paperless - digitise manual and paper-based business processes using Workflow and OCR
  • Go mobile – capture and validate data at source
  • Develop master data repository to create a central repository for all key business data
  • Real-time data exchange with clients & KPI reporting

The solution

Schnell started the process of digitisation by undertaking a detailed study of client’s business processes and came up with a bespoke solution which integrated workflow, OCR and a smart mobile app.

Schnell took the agile development approach to ensure participation from business users and end clients. To test the OCR solution accuracy, Schnell developed a prototype which was tested against 15 days of live data with 90% accuracy.

The fully integrated solution developed by Schnell not only helped the client automate and integrate data exchange internally but also enabled real-time data exchange with their customers, resulting in a saving of 200+ man days of effort per annum.

Schnell’s on-time and to budget delivery helped it win 2 further projects and acquires trusted IT partner status.

  • Reduced order-to-dispatch processing time from hours to seconds
  • Increased revenue – optimised capacity utilisation for last minute orders
  • Increased customer satisfaction and simplified data access via self-service web portal
