PODFather cuts admin time for construction waste company

Grant Prior 4 years ago PODFather Ltd

Waste management and transport specialist Leedale has eradicated paper tickets from its tipper operations and slashed admin time in half following the introduction of  PODFather’s earthworks and ePOD construction fleet management software.

With a fleet of 16 tippers and six grab trucks, and ambitious plans to expand the business, the Leedale team knew that paper processes of the past needed to be updated.

The Leedale team now uses PODFather’s load allocation, delivery tracking and electronic proof of delivery solution to manage the movement of aggregate and muck travelling from its Derbyshire HQ to its network of contractor, consultancy, property developer, public sector and private home owner customers.

Oliver Walkup, Managing Director at Leedale, said: “PODFather’s proven reputation within the construction industry made it the obvious choice for our business.

“It was clear from my first call with the PODFather team that they really understood our industry, and once I saw how intuitive the system actually was it became clear that this was the product to support our future growth.”

Phase one of the system roll out has been to implement PODFather across Leedale’s tipper and grab vehicle divisions.

PODFather is now used daily to allocate loads to vehicles, track delivery performance, manage last minute orders and gather electronic proof of delivery in real time.

Transport office teams use the cloud-based back office system while drivers have quickly gotten to grips with the easy to use smartphone app.

Kim Smith, Leedale’s National Sales Manager, said: “The PODFather solution is incredibly intuitive which has meant we’ve been able to roll it out quickly across our tipper and grab service divisions.

“With PODFather in place we have real time visibility of what’s going on and can deal with any issues, delays or last-minute orders in a quick and efficient manner.  With no paper tickets we’ve been able to halve the amount of admin time we spend processing job information and we can invoice faster than before which is a big benefit to the business.”

Colin McCreadie, Managing Director at PODFather said: “The Leedale implementation shows just how quickly our load allocation, electronic ticketing and ePOD solution can bring big benefits to an organisation.

“Within a matter of a few months Leedale has managed to cut admin time in half and go totally paperless across two of its 15 business divisions.

“We look forward to supporting the Leedale team with their future growth plans as PODFather rolls out across the wider business.”
