When searching for an improved rota and time-tracking system, Peter chose RotaCloud over the competition for two main reasons: ease of use, and minimal cost of ownership.
“RotaCloud’s user interface is the most intuitive we could find. Functions are presented in a highly logical pattern, and terms and icons are self-explanatory. We didn’t have to study lengthy manuals or take expensive training courses when we began to use the system.”
Ease-of-use was particularly important for Carrosse DeLouis as many of their German chauffeurs aren’t digital natives and aren’t fluent in English.
RotaCloud’s pricing structure was also appealing to Peter, given the company’s plans for growth. “RotaCloud can be installed quickly with virtually no set-up costs, and the system is fully scalable at a very low marginal cost. We can take RotaCloud along our growth path across countries and geographies with minimal effort.”
Once RotaCloud was rolled out across the business, Peter was immediately struck by the cost savings. “It is clear that we have saved significant money from day one — we can use this cash to grow our business by investing in marketing and sales.”
The customers of Carrosse DeLouis have also benefited. “We were able to reduce the number of missed trips from unassigned shifts or unavailable chauffeurs to zero. And we could also increase chauffeur resource utilization by more than 25% due to improved shift planning.
“Overall, RotaCloud has a very positive business case, with a payback period of less than half a week!”
