Scenario

Nelson Trucking partnered with AltSource to build a WebApp to assign, schedule, and manage their national fleet of drivers and vehicles, as well as create and manage the jobs associated with their clients’ needs. By eliminating dependency on paper-driven workflows, our application automated processes to increase efficiency across the entire organization.

Nelson Trucking was using excel spreadsheets and other manual processes to schedule and maintain a national fleet of trucks. They needed a single system to streamline these manual process and provide a history of all activity. AltSource created a solution that allows trucks, drivers, jobs, locations, and other components to be scheduled together for a specific amount of time, with specific considerations. Now, they can manage and grow the business without having to scale up the team. Multiple workflows and processes at Nelson Trucking have been streamlined. In one case, an improved workflow reduced the amount of time it took to complete a series of tasks by half (from 6 days to 3 days).
