GrainCorp is a leading Australian agribusiness with ownership of unique international assets across the grain and oil seed supply chain.  GrainCorp has the largest grain storage and logistics network in eastern Australia, spanning regional storage facilities, rail/road and bulk grain ports.

Business Challenge


Daily, Site Managers were required to communicate grain and loading information to the Logistics Team in order to plan the day’s rail schedule. On some days, a Site Manager could spend up to two hours on the phone gathering and exchanging information with the Logistics Team.

Approach


Following the Experience Definition approach, Tigerspike iterated on a tablet and mobile responsive web solution that was tested with a group of Managers before being rolled out across Australia. The site integrates directly with SAP and SMS is used for reminders and important updates. Once information from the sites is entered, a schedule is automatically generated and updated when information changes.

Outcome


The new solution enables Managers to complete the task in a matter of minutes, spending more time attending to managing site safety, efficiency, and compliance. Data and information recorded over time will be used to improve site and rail efficiency further.
