E-DOCUMENTS AS A SERVICE FOR
TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
Digitization, challenge or opportunity...
Few doubt that digitisation is a phenomenon that has persisted. As has happened with many other technologies. Think of the "mechanisation" of offices?
We notice a certain reluctance, especially when several companies are involved..... We never find a suitable moment.
But beware, being too late can limit our competitiveness. Because digitisation opens up unimaginable perspectives while we are in a paper environment.
Applied to logistics, this means getting rid of paper and switching to digitized media. But at the same time it enables us to work together with our customers and suppliers, saving costs (printing, processing, archiving....), preventing errors in data reintroduction and making the information (much more) available in real time. And of course, having systematized information with unlimited access opens up new ways of working and with regard to customers and suppliers, something that is not so easy to improvise.
There are standards that allow the different companies offering scanning services to work with perfectly interchangeable messages (how we send and receive e-mail messages from any platform).
Of course, we have to get used to the environment of electronic documents, QR codes, certified signatures, etc. and new applications that are only possible with documents that are accessible on the network.
But because we have information accessible via our computer, phone or tablet, we can also know the history of the activities per customer, user or other criteria we can imagine. Of course, we need a technology provider to provide the service, as we use it to write and send e-mails.
If we are going to take the step, we expect others to take the step..... although we may be losing competitiveness at this time and others are also expected?
