Device downtime: the biggest problem facing post & parcel companies
Bad weather and heavy traffic may slow down post and parcel (P&P) deliveries, but device downtime can bring them to a halt. This is confirmed by a SOTI study which found that 98% of P&P IT managers deal with issues that delay shipments in a normal week and that P&P employees in Australia lose 15 working hours per month because of downtime. In today’s competitive P&P landscape, those who can deliver on time, every time, win the loyalties and dollars of customers. Learn just how damaging device downtime is to the P&P industry and how SOTI can help minimize it.
