service as a top priorities.

Before starting with BuyCo, Alteo was experiencing lack of visibility, time consuming and repetitive tasks for their container shipping operations. Alteo After Sales Service was buried by mails and unable to serve their customers for a good visibility and real time communication on their logistics flows.
With BuyCo’s help, Alteo achieved the following results:

  • 80% emails reduction
  • 25% in productivity gains (time savings)
  • 100% of the transportation plan fulfilled

« BuyCo, digital collaborative platform allows us to take faster and reliable decisions since we all share the latest information and stay on the same page. In this way, we are also able to quickly answer to our customers which contributes to a better satisfaction. »

Alteo goals were the following ones:

  • Improving their customer after-sale service
  • Enhancing the transportation plan management
  • Automate the administrative and repetitive tasks
  • Create a single ecosystem to share and archive documents
    collect relevant DATA
  • Create KPI in order to measure the performance of their logistics partners

« With the BuyCo tool, we are able to do a documentary tracking. Today, technology allows us to track containers in real time, but if the documents do not follow the cargo at the same pace or even faster, it does not help much. All our partners can access the information. The documentary tracking is fundamental, mainly for any customs clearance operation.”
