During its recent Annual Conference, Sylectus, a strategic business unit of Qualcomm Enterprise Services, announced the availability of SylectDash, its new web-based dashboard solution that allows real-time access to mission critical information to improve fleet management. Leveraging this powerful "anytime, anywhere" toolset, customers can access fleet information to make timely business decisions, creating a competitive market advantage along with increased time- and cost-savings across operations.
According to Sylectus customer, Chuck King, president of logistics, Bolt Express, LLC, "SylectDash provides the real-time business intelligence our team needs to effectively monitor and improve performance throughout the entire organization. With this dashboard, we spend less time running reports and analyzing data, which saves us valuable time and allows us to better serve our customers."
Designed for fleet managers with up to 400 trucks, SylectDash boasts the following features:
- Web-based dashboard: streamlines quick and easy, near real-time access, allowing customers to tap into mission critical information for timely decision-making, ultimately helping sustain successful business operations
- Visually powerful presentation instruments: month-to-month gross margin, predictive sensitivity analysis reports and more allow fleet managers to maximize profitability and fleet utilization by providing meaningful, easy-to-grasp, near real-time representations of what is actually happening with all aspects of their operations
- Event forecasting/analysis—simulates future events with real-time "what if" scenarios to improve tactical and strategic planning, by equipping fleet managers with the tools to better anticipate and execute against events that could pose potential threats to business operations
"Through close collaboration with our network of customers, we developed a web-based dashboard that delivers accurate information to the right hands, removing previous workflow barriers," said Stuart Sutton, senior director at Qualcomm Enterprise Services and general manager of Sylectus. "Today's fleet managers face evolving business needs; as such, the ability to anticipate future events and adapt accordingly affords unique market agility and the flexibility to avoid scenarios that previously derailed operations. With SylectDash, fleet managers can make smarter business decisions that not only attract new opportunities for financial success, but also ensure 'staying power' within the larger transportation industry."
SylectDash is an optional module of the Sylectus Transportation Management Software (TMS) available for purchase on Sylectus' website. The Sylectus Annual Conference was held Feb. 10-12, 2012 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Fla. During this two-day symposium, fleet industry thought leaders presented the latest information about best practices, innovations and strategies to improve business operations.
