Prasanna Purple Mobility Solutions wanted to improve on operational efficiency but was hampered by the difficulty in gathering data from different departments. This siloed approach to data collection, storage and analysis meant that obtaining quality insights for decision support was too time-consuming to be realistic.
The company implemented Trapeze’s Planning & Scheduling software and Enterprise Resource Planning system, creating a single source of truth for the entire organisation. Purple is now able to identify areas in need of improvement and make evidence-based business decisions.
