About the Company

Road Transpo Specialist, Inc. operates a business primarily focused on the delivery of both fuel and non-fuel products, with a substantial emphasis on fuel delivery. They manage a fleet of approximately 60-65 tankers in the Philippines. The company's core operations revolve around transporting these products to their designated destinations efficiently and reliably. To effectively manage their Fleet and ensure the smooth operation of their delivery services, they require streamlined and comprehensive fleet management solutions.

At the outset, the company faced challenges due to the absence of structured systems or software applications to manage various aspects of its Fleet.

Road Transpo Specialist, Inc. (RTS Inc.) brought Irnil Joseph Mutia on board to help streamline their processes and bring order to their operations. Irnil's expertise lies in setting up and improving business & finance processes and enhancing accounting systems for small and medium-sized businesses. This proved to be a valuable asset for the company.

“When I first started, my focus was to create a process. Then after creating the processes I researched and I tried to find an app that would fit with the process maps that I designed. Simply Fleet fit right in and that's why we started using it.”
-Irnil  Mutia

Challenges

RTS Inc. faced significant challenges due to their reliance on manual record-keeping using Excel sheets:

  • Time-Consuming & Error-Prone: Employees had to enter data, update information, and manage records manually, which consumed valuable working hours and was inherently prone to errors.
  • Maintenance & Repair Schedules: Without a dedicated system, tracking maintenance schedules for their fleet vehicles became a complex task. This meant that scheduled maintenance, such as oil changes or other critical tasks, could be easily overlooked, and vehicles were not repaired in a timely manner.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring compliance with government regulations posed a significant challenge. The company needed to meet these compliance requirements to avoid penalties.

Solution: Implementing Simply Fleet
