LogiNext partners with Shalimar Paints to revolutionize their logistics and supply chain management processes by enabling their system along the lines of the latest in technology and big data analytics to track and manage their shipments. LogiNext offers them the best tracking and analytics tool in the industry through their award-winning products LogiNext HaulTM and LogiNext ForceTM.
LogiNext has enabled Shalimar paints into a world of data analytics and real-time tracking with instant alerts and live delivery status updates.
Ashok Jade, CIO, Shalimar Paints, elaborates on the LogiNext value-add, “Optimizing and automating our logistics process is the key to cost reduction. Earlier we missed on realizing the true potential of our operations, as the processes were not IT enabled. Now, with LogiNext, we have in-depth analysis with detailed reports on every shipment. We can now track each transporter to figure the cost effectiveness of each of them, which helps us in vendor management.”
Describing the best features of HaulTM, he further added, “One of the key features is the hub load analysis. We have real-time tracking and regular updates for our shipments across all the hubs in the country. We can analyze the peak load deliveries at all these hub points. This helps us with scheduling the unloading processes at the destination hubs. We can manage the work hours around the expected time of arrivals of large shipments. This, again, helps in utilizing the resources effectively.”
LogiNext offers real-time tracking with regular alerts about the shipment as it moves to its destination.
Speaking of the benefits of regular alerts, Anil Kumar Pandey, Head of Purchase & Supply Chain added, “We can now track and decide on the optimized route for a journey. If a shipment took 7 days to complete a turnaround journey, HaulTM has reduced it to about 5 days. This enhances the returns from the used resources and gives the option of reusing them in quick time, adding to the cost saving potential.”
Commenting on the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) streamlining, Anil Kumar Pandey further added, “Earlier we had all our SLAs documented in our files, without any real way to measure or track the same. While handling our deliverables and our vendors we didn’t have data to back any mismanagement within the SLAs. LogiNext helped us with real-time tracking of all our SLAs, while streamlining our detention analytics and raising the overall transport standards across the hubs.”
