Data integration and automation: three ways it benefits productivity
If you own and manage multiple third-party systems, you risk losing control of valuable data. It’s likely that you have employees that manually input data into each of these systems but this way of doing can be extremely time-consuming and not very efficient.
An integration tool, such as MiX Integrate, can automatically gathered ALL of the vehicle and driver data relevant to you and disseminate it to your third-party systems. This helps ensure that the right data is stored in the right place at the right time. But what other benefits can data integration and automation provide?
Automating the handling of data increases the productivity of employees. Instead of having an employee enter data by hand, the integration solution does it for them and they can shift their focus onto other, similarly important tasks.
Additionally, data integration and automation removes routine, mundane tasks and improve job satisfaction. Taking away monotonous tasks such as data input also reduces the need to hire new people, giving you control over the size and quality of your team.
Reduction of errors
Where a platform is implemented that automatically collects and transfers data from one system to another, there is a reduced need for human interference. When employees have to manually input data, it is likely that errors happen more frequently and data duplication can occur. Automated data input ensures that there is a consistency and accuracy in data collection and therefore more accurate analyses.
Automated data management and integration ensures that you get up-to-date information at all times and that data is stored exactly where it needs to be. Having 24/7 access to accurate and timely information, allows you and your employees to make informed decisions on daily operations and future plans.
Critical decisions are made using only the latest data, minimizing risk to your fleet. Real-time visibility also makes it possible to be more innovative, helping you to implement ideas that are relevant. With a constant, updated flow of data, you can immediately see what is working and what isn’t, making sure that issues can be resolved as soon as they appear.
