Providing customers with educational and networking opportunities is a central part of our Insight Tech Conference + Expo. Another core component? Highlighting some of the innovative ways our customers use technology to optimize workflows and processes within their business.
During last night’s Customer Appreciation Dinner, we announced the winners of our 2022 Ovation Awards. This annual awards program recognizes Trimble customers that have best harnessed technology to increase the performance, safety and efficiency of their respective organizations.
This year’s winners in the following 6 categories include:
Analytics Achievers – Best in Data Utilization: Master Fleet, LLC
After identifying a need for more robust reporting capabilities, Master Fleet built a complete Business Intelligence dashboard system using Power BI within Trimble’s TMT solution to more quickly find answers to the questions that their operations staff previously struggled to determine. Today, staff utilizes dashboards that provide at-a-glance reporting on staff workflows, status updates, rates and efficiency comparisons, underperforming tickets, inventory turnover and more.
Automation All-Stars – Best in Improving Overall Efficiencies: Bison Transport
To address the challenge of ensuring that drivers are able to clear cross-border customs in a timely manner, Bison Transport utilized several Trimble Enterprise solutions to automate many of the manual processes required to ensure compliance with government regulations and efficient crossing. After launching an initiative to verify data cleanliness, Bison adopted the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) and Advanced Commercial Information (ACI) systems submission process through TMW E-Manifest, as well as utilizing driver, trailer and customer profiles in TMW Operations, ultimately allowing it to achieve an average success rate of 89% automation of processes for clearing loads at the border.
ROI MVP – Best Return on Investment: Ascend
Ascend, a growing dry van, full truckload carrier, uses Trimble’s solutions to find backhaul loads more efficiently, showing when tractors are loaded or empty.
