One of the most important keys to making decisions in a company is data analysis based on numbers and facts. Any business is numbers which affect each other. For example, the prime cost affects the profit. The number of employees affects the growth of the company and the provision of better quality to customers, and, as a result, profit.
It is a well-known opinion: in order for the processes at the company to be several times more effective when making this or that decision, you should always listen to what data says.
Digitalization is about numbers, especially in the field of transportation, taxi and chauffeur-limousine services. Perhaps this is not that noticeable, but each order from the client for the trip includes a large amount of data: coordinates of points A and B, data about the driver and the car, about sectors, accounting, parameters of the optimal route for the driver, algorithms and mathematics of the distribution of orders in the queue.
Now let’s imagine how much more efficient can be the processes in the service of transporting people, if we entrust the processing of this data to a computer? In particular, with the help of new and progressive transport management software from UTC-Software, which takes into account all possible data.
For Taxi Aktiv Koeln owner Hashim Akman, every morning begins with an audit of data from the last 24 hours. He sits down at the computer and looks at a whole complex of these numbers: electronic reports, the number of processed orders, trips, medical trips, car arrival times, customer feedbacks, completed orders and revenue earned. But one of the most important data is the number of additional kilometers passed, which means unnecessary fuel consumption.
In the period prior to the digitalization of the processes, empty kilometers were a problem for Taxi Aktiv Koeln. If the driver gets stuck in traffic jam, this means additional fuel consumption and, as a result, an increase in emissions of CO, CO2, NO2, which are harmful for the environment.
How did digitalization start solving the problem?
1. Intelligent system of distribution of orders, which is based on sectors. Here's how it works:
- The whole city is divided into the necessary sectors.
- Each of them has its own queue of drivers for orders.
- When the driver takes the client to point B, the program queues him for the next order in the address closest to point B.
- The algorithm immediately assigns the driver to a new order.
2. The mathematics of the route calculation. Intelligent formulas allow to lay the most optimal route: with a minimum distance and no traffic jams. Cars work only when it is really needed.
The good result of digitalization is obvious. There will be a significant reduction in the number of empty kilometers on trips. What does it mean? Reducing exhaust emissions, saving money on fuel, efficient distribution of driver’s working time. That's how the analysis of numbers and mathematical calculation began to protect nature even in such an environmentally complex industry as transportation on internal combustion engines and hybrids.
We want to note that Mr. Hashim Akman is very sensitive to environmental issues. “I think everyone can contribute to the protection of environment and this is very important for our home planet,” he said at the very beginning of the work. The owner of the Taxi Aktiv Koeln chauffeur-limousine service tries not to print data on paper and relies on electronic circulation of documents and reports. Taxi Aktiv Koeln also has an environmental program: they spend part of their income on planting new trees, which helps fight carbon dioxide. The perception of digitalization as a way to protect the environment was decisive when Taxi Aktiv Koeln and UTC-Software started collaborating.
UTC-Software created the new way of business management via a mobile phone, where you can see all the cars online, how much money they earn and all the necessary statistics. If you need to create a tool personally for your business, we are ready to implement it very quickly.
