Herndon, Va.—April 22, 2015—SkyBitz, a provider of remote asset tracking and information management solutions, announced that Heniff Transportation Systems, a liquid bulk carrier, updated its fleet with the Falcon series product along with the subscription-based enterprise solution, SkyBitz as a Service. Through SkyBitz as a Service, Heniff Transportation Systems receives expert onboarding support, real-time reporting, analytic tools and transportation management system (TMS) integration with no upfront capital expense. SkyBitz asset management solutions help Heniff Transportation Systems deliver a higher level of service to its customers through offering load tracking with more accurate reporting so the company can see where its product is at any time.
Heniff Transportation Systems operates in the chemical industry, which has very unique and dynamic needs that require different types of trailers for specialty chemicals. In its line of business ,it is crucial for operations and dispatching teams to quickly access accurate information to determine which type of equipment is available and how far away it is so the company can quickly re-assign it. It's also important to be able to share this tracking information with its customers. During its re-evaluation, Heniff was looking for a service that would give it real-time tracking of its assets for increased visibility of shipments and inactive trailers, and perform remote yard checks. Heniff’s maintenance and tank wash teams also benefit from having location and status information of its trailers by using that information to better plan its work load and scheduling when trailers come in for service or to be cleaned.
“We were attracted to the new SkyBitz as a Service offering because it opens the doors to provide our customers and us real-time tracking, notifications and reporting with a top focus on security, along with location information,” said Justin Neal, director of business integration, Heniff Transportation Systems. “SkyBitz takes our data further by merging it with other sources and puts it all together in all areas of our operations (from dispatch to maintenance to tank cleaning) to deliver real-time reporting, exception alerts and dynamic visuals to be able to make better strategic business decisions.”
Since first placing orders with SkyBitz more than nine years ago, Heniff Transportation Systems asset management needs progressed as its business and fleet size grew, and newer technology solutions became available. Heniff conducted a comprehensive evaluation of solutions available in the market and ultimately selected SkyBitz to continue to be its asset management solutions provider for all its trailer assets. Through a hands-on consultative approach by SkyBitz, Heniff benefitted from a seamless installation process that enabled it to quickly deploy across its entire network of assets.
