A day with TellingTank
During your morning coffee you log into the dashboard and on the map you have a quick overview of all your Tank Beer locations. There are no urgent deliveries needed, with another sip of coffee you filter on all purple indicators to add them to todays trip planning.
Online you see that the road conditions are okay and you upload your planning to the tank beer truck so your driver can start immediately.
You process the invoicing of yesterday delivers, you can do this well before the weekly tank beer meeting.
During this meeting you use the dashboard and historical data to discuss last week problem cases. One of these issues concerns a faulty coolcompressor causing the beer temperature being too high. You zoom in the caterar location and you see that for this location there is no maintenance data contract so the problem wasn’t detected before the beer temperature became a problem. The system shows two caterars with ‘aged’ beer, you plan to contact these caterars this afternoon to sell them fresh deliveries. Your manager is very satisfied with the insights.
During lunch time a good customer in Amsterdam calls with a request to have extra beer. On the system you see that there is a truck near Amsterdam, his trip planning can be changed so this customer can be helped immediately. You change the planning of this truck and call the driver. The driver confirms the change and will visit this customer. You have time for tea and conclude that your Tank Beer is under control
