What was the innovation within your project which made you win the award? How did this contribute to your client’s success?
András Szoboszlay "GPS based fleet management solutions are already widely used by the transportation companies. But GPS is working reliably only outdoor. The indoor positioning is something different. Innovation number 1 was the real time location system what we have implemented at thyssenkrupp Ferroglobus. Innovation number 2 was the planning and scheduling algorithm what we have used to optimize the sequence the loading and unloading jobs. Innovation number 3 was the intelligent connection of different data sources, (software’s, databases, xls sheets etc.) The most important success factor for our client was the visibility and control over the yard status. “You can’t control what you can’t measure”. We have delivered a complex software and hardware tool the measure the movements, actions within the yard or facility."
In your opinion, how is the project supporting the developments of logistics in the CEE region?
András Szoboszlay "When the customer asked for a solution from us, first we made a short market study, what kinds of TYM solution are available in Hungary? We found that in North America there are many, but in Europe there are few similar solution provider company. Even less with identical approach what thyssenkrupp Ferroglobus shared with us. If you operate with 20-30 loading/docking station with more than 30-40 truck daily you can have substantial saving using our L-mobile trailer yard management system. The real time status of the trucks can be reported also to the transportation company (owner of the truck) which can plan more reliable the custom/tax control procedures, the arrival time of truck back to base etc. This way we can provide a fully connected network of information’s to each interested party in the supply chain process."
From your perspective, which are the biggest challenges in the logistics field the CEE region is facing? How are you supporting your clients to overcome them?
András Szoboszlay "We live in a connected world. As an IT company we help our customers to establish connection and communication of different segments within their supply chain workflow. We see increasing demand on the market to mobile applications and business intelligence solutions. All of our projects have the same major ROI factors: reduce time of administration, increasing visibility, establishing real time information flow."
