Data Collection for Transportation and Logistics Groups During COVID-19 and Beyond

Jun 15, 2020

Transportation and logistics have quite possibly never been more important than they are today.

In fact, according to recent stats, over the next year, the global transportation and logistics market is expected to grow from 2,734 billion to 3,215 billion – a 17.6% increase. At a time when other industries are suffering incomparable losses, this industry is facing unprecedented growth.

As groups adjust to new supply chain needs, new transportation requirements, and an increased focus on the need for health and safety audits, the demand for targeted, efficient data solutions is greater than ever before.

Safety Begins with Better Mobile Data Solutions

To improve the safety of the members of the workforce, goods being transported, and customers, proper data collection with real-time data and trend tracking is essential.

While dated solutions – like standard electronic forms or even pen and paper data collection – may have been sufficient before the COVID-19 pandemic, that’s no longer the case. Today, adhering to ever-changing regulations without over-burdening employees requires flexible, customized solutions with features that include:

  • Offline data collection
  • iOS and Android (bring-your-own-device) functionality
  • Fully customized forms to gather the data you need without excess
  • Automated metadata collection
  • Tamper-proof forms
  • Industry-leading security
  • Integration with solutions you already work with, without the need to start from scratch
  • And more.

Most importantly, the right mobile data solution must be scalable and affordable, with a price range that matches budgetary requirements.

Groups are Moving Quickly

Groups in this space have begun to adopt iFormBuilder, and are already up and running since the onset of COVID-19. These groups have taken advantage of the rapid start-up capabilities available with the Zerion team, free COVID forms and solutions, and more. Many have seen a reduction in time spent on traditional safety audits and data collection of over 75%. This amounts to massive savings and increased productivity that makes keeping up with new demands easier than anticipated.
