Driving Success with Improved Workflow
Powerful Solutions for a Heavy-Duty Company. A Peterbilt of Wyoming – a heavy duty truck & trailer dealership that builds and services customized vehicles, implements Document Management to streamline business transactions, improve communications and make operations more efficient.
Outgrowing The Paper Business
A heavy-duty truck & trailer dealership, Peterbilt of Wyoming is a third-generation, family owned and operated business with five locations across Wyoming. Having been in business for 70 years, Peterbilt of Wyoming custom builds and services trucks for many industries, such as oil fields, coal mines, snow plowing and delivering freight across the country. With 5,000 customers, the dealership processes thousands of truck-related orders, including new sales, repairs, service orders and warranties. Before Document Management, all this paperwork was processed manually. “We were constantly mailing and FedExing documents between our different locations,” DeVore says. “We were spending more on postage than it made sense!”
Digitizing Streamlines Business Transactions
Every Peterbilt truck is customized for specific business operations, with specs documented when a customer acquires the vehicle. Later, if the same customer wants to acquire another truck, the specs are retrieved and used to create a new order. Previously, sales-clerks had to wait for two to three days for the original paper document to be found at the location it was filed—and FedExed. With Document Management, this operation takes minutes. “Now they can be pulled up instantly,” DeVore says. Digitizing also streamlined invoice processing, communications and payments. When an invoice is closed, whether for a repair or parts, it’s automatically archived in Document Management, and can be found easily. “I think we’re getting paid faster,” DeVore says.
Digitizing Improves Communications
Another big advantage of digital storage is the ability to efficiently disseminate information. Previously, if a customer’s invoice was created in one office and town location but the person is in another, the staff had to call to locate the paper invoice—and then scan it, email, fax or FedEx. If a part was recalled, Peterbilt of Wyoming had to locate every invoice for the part and inform the customers, which used to be a tedious manual process. Document Management sped up and streamlined the process. “We can search by date, invoice number, unit number, and even full text,” DeVore says. Documents can be signed with the E-Signature capability and sent to the needed locations. “I cannot believe how fast we find stuff in Document Management,” DeVore concludes.
