About The Customer
Leading UK’s food service specialist, which delivers more than 4500 products to over 30,000 customers including delis, restaurants, caterers and cafes.
The Challenge

Food service delivery companies generally manage large volumes of food or non-food products, with very low profit margins. And, one of their major challenges involves optimizing operational efficiency during food delivery, for accelerated business growth and competitive advantage.

However, to address this challenge, they had no means to know what exactly happens during the delivery hours. Was the food inventory ready to deliver is kept under optimum temperature conditions? Were the drivers taking the right routes? Was the customer order being delivered on time? Their business required visibility of its supply chain operations in real-time, so they could track & monitor what’s happening every minute. This would help optimize operations and save money.

The Solution

 Saviant built a cloud-based IoT and Enterprise Mobility platform that provides 100% visibility of supply chain operations in real-time. The platform seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Dynamics AX as well. This IoT solution is powered by Microsoft Azure IoT to provide the necessary capabilities that the business demands. Real-time temperature monitoring of perishable food items is achieved using a fleet of multi-temperature control vehicles, which send data in real-time to cloud and drivers’ mobile phones. This helps to enable real-time tracking of operations for thousands of customers’ orders daily. The result is the customer delight through high-quality customer service by delivering the right food at right time and to the right location.
