APM Digitizes Paper-Based Process and Saves Drivers 30 Hours Per Day with SOTI Snap
Drivers for APM, a municipal waste management company, start their days by picking up route planning paperwork for different waste disposal work orders. Details of each work order are then entered by hand onto a form and events during the working day (for example, finding incorrectly sorted or prohibited items in the garbage containers) are documented and scanned.
This manual data entry is usually completed at the end of the working day and takes about 15 to 20 minutes per driver per day. Due to time pressure and manual processes, important details may be forgotten or incorrectly noted.
APM needed a solution to digitize this time-consuming, inaccurate process. They chose SOTI Snap to automate this workflow, help drivers become more productive and reduce costs.
What was the result? How much time and money did SOTI Snap help APM save? Read the case study to find out.
