Integrating systems in a business helps improve data flow, data management and cost effectiveness. Doubly so for integrating your ERP system and Telogis Location Monitoring. When using multiple non-integrated systems, not only is there the extra cost of entering data multiple times, but also increases the risk of losing or misentering data. When dealing with any vehicle service, a misentered address can cause serious problems.
With Telogis integration, any information available in Telogis can be automatically entered into your ERP system. Drivers, jobs, vehicle location, fuel use, and much more. With each of these metrics being automatically entered, you can have specialized reports that correlate data from your ERP and the Telogis system. For example, a report can connect a specific driver and extra fuel use.
This data doesn't only come from Telogis, but to Telogis from the ERP system as well. As you enter customer data, it can be accessed by the Telogis system or by employees in the field via the Telogis mobile app. This can be extremely advantageous if jobs, clients, or addresses need to be updated on the fly. It also increases the confidence your field employees have in the data when they check it; no worrying if the data they have is current or not.
