PARMALAT STREAMLINED ITS DIRECT STORE DELIVERY OPERATIONS IN WESTERN CANADA WITH THE CIS DSD ROUTE ACCOUNTING SOLUTION
Parmalat has implemented CIS’ Route Accounting application – Route Companion – to automate its direct store delivery operations in western Canada. Parmalat has been a CIS client for over 15 years and this past month rolled out Route Companion in that region, totalling over 350 DSD routes automated throughout Canada. Drivers will be able to carry out all their daily activities directly on handheld computers, simplifying their start and end of day while efficiently carrying out all their POS activities with customer-specific information. The CIS DSD mobile application runs on Intermec’s CK60 and PB42 printers. All data will flow in a bidirectional environment between the back-end and mobile units.

With the new software, they were able to save between 15 to 20 hours per week. After only 8 months, we were able to get the return on our investment.

After eight months using the solution, we can firmly say that the application is fully established and functional. Such success is largely attributed to the team of professionals in charge of implementing the project. They were fully dedicated and committed throughout the different phases of the project, allowing it to be delivered on time and within the estimated budget

Half of the drivers trained attained a fair level of competency on the 1st day in the field. No one was completely at a loss. So we were very pleased with the training results.
