The IT department does not have a timely overview of system problems and the individual forklift driver does not receive the information necessary to work more efficiently, or not in time
At a German medium-sized company, IT had the requirement to be able to react more quickly to errors and to process incoming tickets better. However, there was a lack of transparency in the IT and logistics departments and a centralized view of incoming requests and faults. The time delay that arose because the information was not available in real time was immense.
Forklift with touch screens and an IT management board for real-time data visualization
The solution includes dashboards with the most important key figures (live), which are generated via interfaces to the customer's individual systems. Forklift trucks with touch screens for logistics, as well as a transparent ticketing system in the form of an IT management board for real-time data visualization for the IT department.
Through the support, which reacts quickly, emerging stumbling blocks can be solved quickly.
The idea of developing the system on one's own came up. But this idea was quickly discarded.
