Mendix and CAPE Groep deliver Board Computer Portal

Partners Mendix and CAPE Groep have developed the Board Computer Portal for Mammoet Road Cargo, a leading company in exceptional road transportation. The Board Computer Portal will be used for real-time communication with truck drivers through board computers. As a result the calculation of transportations costs will be more accurately, while the administration processing time is considerably shortened. With the portal solution Mammoet Road Cargo is able to process the collected information in a very efficient manner and increase the transparency of their procedures. The portal is built by CAPE Groep, using the Mendix Model-driven Application Development Platform.

Derek Roos, CEO Mendix: “Because of its flexibility, the use of the Mendix Model-driven Application Platform reduces cost, time and complexity of the new portal implementation. Because of the structured approach of our partner CAPE Groep, who has a lot of experience in solving logistic issues, the implementation was completed in just weeks.’

Rob ter Brugge, CEO CAPE Groep: “One of the most frequently asked questions is how to increase the efficiency and accuracy of the transport administration. To address this problem we developed the Board Computer Portal. This is the first project an ERP system is incorporated with a board computer incorporate, which makes Mammoet Road Cargo an absolute trendsetter in the market.”

Giel Koevoets, CEO of Mammoet Road Cargo: “This portal enables us to communicate directly with our truck drivers through our board computers. The supervision is now complete transparent and the result is a clear feedback on worked hours. The hour administration can now be done in less than 50% of the time, which is really remarkable.”
By implementing the Board Computer Portal, Mammoet Road Cargo is able to streamline processes that cross its ERP and board computer systems. The new Board Computer Portal offers a complete overview of relevant transport data, automated cost calculation and both operational and historical reports. In addition to this the portal combines the data with the original customer order.
