A Time For Change
In the early days of operation, processes and data were managed with several Excel-sheets and a homemade access application. As the company grew, SCL Rotterdam looked for a system that would best fit their processes at that point in time.
In 2009, SCL Rotterdam decided to go for a logistics software system. In the years following the implementation of this logistics software system, the company heavily diversified. More and more services were added, in addition to departments, and completely new business processes.
The company concluded that the simple logistics system was not enough to cover the company’s entire workflow. To cover the new requirements, a few new tools were programmed in-house, and departments increasingly used Google Sheets to maintain their data and monitor processes.
Seven years later, they reviewed their internal architecture and realized there were many opportunities to increase efficiency. In short, they needed a proper software solution for their company. A major pain point they needed to fix was the inefficiency of working in many different systems across departments. This caused double data entries because the data wasn’t centrally available. In other words, it was time for a change.
Tailored Offers with Odoo Fleet
When opening the main menu, employees have found the interface looks similar to the interface of a smartphone, with all the apps laid out in a friendly manner. The Odoo app itself also works great, and is fantastic for users to access the database from anywhere.
Vogler says, "I think Odoo has thought very carefully from the perspective of the user experience, and just making it intuitive, making it simple for users. I also notice that the employees really enjoy working with it".
