Truck distributor Isuzu Truck (UK) Ltd has improved its compliance & maintenance management by changing software suppler to i2i (issue2invoice). Isuzu has integrated i2i throughout its dealer network to streamline operations.
Isuzu Repair and Maintenance Manager Tony Parker was impressed with the new offer; “The ‘Inspect’ package has been around for many years, becoming the clear market leader and now with the bolt-on i2i system it has moved forward considerably.”
Launched at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2015, i2i or ‘issue 2 invoice’ is a web-based pricing, authorisation and invoicing platform.
Nick Walls, Managing Director of r2c Online explained; “The ability to switch to an electronic method of pricing, authorising and invoicing SMR work not only saves 75% on the cost of processing every invoice, but also cuts downtime considerably and streamlines processes for both repairers and fleets.”
Parker explains; “i2i has allowed Isuzu to incorporate and keep up to date, all parts files along with labour time guides, which has helped structure servicing and repair jobs for the dealers. The ability, in real time, to monitor from receipt of vehicle right through to invoice payment and measure individual vehicle costs against a plan is a very welcome benefit.”
Three months into using the system and having successfully migrated legacy data away from a previous supplier, the software is already having a positive impact for Isuzu. Tony Parker acknowledges this by saying; “We are already seeing the benefits in time saving and the greater flexibility to manage many more aspects than we were previously able to.”
