What is the particular challenge in this job?
The challenge lies in the sheer volume of processes and in the fact that simply nothing at all can go wrong. Perfection is our minimum standard. In 2022 alone, our employees in the U.S. handled nearly 440,000 vehicles this way at various customer locations. That's around 1,200 vehicles a day. And now, a new feature in our Leadec.os software platform, which we developed and implemented specifically for vehicle processing, also supports this process.
What exactly can this new feature do?
Equipped with a small scanner, Leadec employees take over the vehicle as it exits in the plant. They record all the data, document any damage and are told exactly where to park the vehicle. Once the job is done, Leadec.os sends a message to the transportation companies’ system who then pick up the vehicles and ship them to next stage in the logistic network. There are multiple benefits to our new system. For starters, there is a big productivity gain when setting up new operations: it now takes hours instead of weeks for new configuration or enhancements. There is also the added benefit of to the end user as this is a more flexible and nimble tool.
