Ports around the world are a major source of activity. They are abuzz with life and activity, ferrying passengers and transporting goods from one base to another port. Like any other business, logistics industry requires a team of specialized hands who can help drive the sales.
This is where Salesforce comes into the picture that will help increase the efficiency of the system. For any business to survive, it is important to track the growth and efficiency of each employee involved. With the right hands-on training by Cloud Solutions, our logistics have reached its peak. Some of our employees also went for the Microsoft Dynamics training programs that were held recently. Together, these have enhanced the skill-set of our employees.
According to reports in www.arabianbusiness.com, Dubai’s latest harbour project is grabbing headlines. Here are some good ideas about the features that can help the tourism and logistics industry.
· Freight Management
If you are looking at long-term goals, all freight and carrier systems should include the finest transportation management system (or TMS). These are a part of the system and not extra features with a price tag. Any system should include proper tariff, address and report generation software.
The general idea here is to stay in top form. One can track the sales or freight in case of ports; targets reached and even monitor the other performances. All this possible only with Salesforce implementation.
· Download Metrics And Reports
Statistics and numbers give the exact picture of an employee’s performance. Reports are important for your daily analysis and should be customised to suit your vendors and business partners. Each of the concerned party can view reports at their convenience and gauge where the business is headed to.
· Managing Loads
An efficient load management system should convert the status of your goods to delivered. What does this mean? There are plenty of transportation management software your logistics can use. When combined with web services, they can create reports and display them. It also includes all bills of loading and unloading which is often overlooked.
· Varied Record Types
Applying Salesforce to logistics has its own merits in ports. A hub of activity, it is vital to provide the right record type for the customers. Through the Enterprise Edition, any transportation and logistics industry can employ different records for each of the business clients.
Any company that has its roots in a particular industry, say maritime shipping, a variety of records can be created for Asian, Europe and the US trades. Details vary from one operation to another. The transportation type, quotation, contracts and delivery differs considerably. When a business has the ability to fill out different records for each of these processes, their job is simplified to a large extent.
· Peak season demands
To meet the client’s demands during peak season, it is advised to make the most of customised forecasting. This allows for the submission of a report on a periodic basis. All the details like the sales team performance, multiple predictions by commodity and customer has been possible with Salesforce.
We must admit that Salesforce has made a new path in the field of transportation that is convenient and easy to use in addition to being able to efficiently monitor all the day to day activities.
