Driver logbook chaos overload

For HR and Compliance Managers in the transport sector, managing work diary logbook sheets can be an arduous task. The combination of high volumes of paperwork, compliance requirements, and workforce management calls for a solution that’s efficient and reliable. Today, we’re diving into a practical use case for a transport company with 150 trucks, 200 drivers, and an annual processing of around 26,000 work diary sheets.

Let's see how Harvy can revolutionise your compliance management process and solve key pain points.

The Challenges

Our client, a mid-sized transport company, was struggling with work diary processing. Here were the pain points:

  1. Time-Consuming Data Entry: Manually entering data from 26,000 sheets a year consumed massive amounts of time.

  2. Labor Costs: With an output of 30 sheets per hour, and a cost of $40/hr, the labor cost was significant.

  3. Compliance Risks: Keeping up with NHVR compliance requirements and ensuring error-free reporting was challenging.

  4. Resource Allocation: Allocating HR resources for data entry instead of strategic tasks was not ideal.

Implementing Harvy.ai

Harvy is an AI-powered compliance management tool designed to streamline the processing of driver work diary sheets. The client decided to implement Harvy, and the results were astonishing.

The Results

Here’s a comparison of productivity, time savings, and labor cost before and after implementing Harvy:

The Monthly Breakdown

On a monthly basis, our client processes around 2,167 work diary sheets (26,000/12).

  • Before Harvy, they spent 72 hours monthly on data entry.

  • With Harvy, it dropped down to just 12 hours.

  • The monthly labor cost savings amounts to $2,400.

  • The output shot up by an astounding 570%.

This amounts to significant savings in time and money which can be allocated to other critical areas of business.
