The JobWatch system is saving the company thousands of pieces of paper annually and has improved back-office administration

director of Hargreaves Logistics said: “JobWatch is bringing about a digital transformation for our logistics business. The JobWatch mobile app has streamlined workflows and enabled our drivers to be connected in real time with our back office. Flexibility and integration with Stirling Solutions Transport Management System was what attracted us to JobWatch; for example we’re using the system to manage TASCC jobs and paperwork trails required for audit. This requires careful cleaning of trailers for loading with food for human consumption. JobWatch rigorously manages the workflow and ensures photographic proof of the process is saved.” Drivers’ use of the timesheet and expense functionality on the app allows the finance team to efficiently allocate costs to vehicles and drivers and run payroll. A timesheet reconciliation report combines drivers hours, tachograph information and vehicle tracking data. At the end of each journey drivers view their behaviour score allowing them to track their personal driving improvements and ranking.
