Global challenges continue to reshape business priorities and rock sustainable profitability. From cyber security to ESG – including the electrification of passenger vehicles, waste reduction, net-zero commitments, ethical supply chains, modern slavery, and diversity, equity and inclusion – businesses are readily investing in new technologies and capabilities to best position them to tackle these challenges and thrive.
That’s on top of a hugely challenging couple of years, with supply chains now stretched to an unrecognisable degree in response to the pressures of the pandemic. Meanwhile the federal budget showed the government clearly bracing itself for a winter Omicron wave that could further disrupt business through simple absenteeism.
According to The AFR, this has put those who can plan and manage complex supply chains in high demand, with the ability to work with cloud computing as well as data and analytics all part of the package.
We have always known location technology has a role to play in helping companies to overcome business-critical challenges, but we want to know how. And it’s the people behind the technologies that have the answers.
It’s why we’re surveying Australian and New Zealand businesses on their perceptions of and investment into location technology.
By location technology, for the purposes of our survey, we mean:
- Asset tracking
- Driver-facing solutions, such as mobile applications
- Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) updates to customers
- Last-mile delivery management system
- Real-time location tracking and positioning
- Route optimisation and planning
- Shipment visibility
- Automated warehouse solutions
We want to know what you see as the primary benefits of location tech. Is it cost-savings, emissions reduction, security, or workplace safety?
And how much does your organisation invest in location tech? Is that set to change?
Most importantly, do you think it’s worth it? How much do you think it saves your organisation in everything from productivity gains, to reduced fuel consumption and customer attrition?
This survey should take 5-10 minutes for you to complete, unless you want to spend some time getting creative around our final question: What innovations would you like to see in the next 5 years?
It’s hugely important to us that we represent as many voices as possible, as well as a variety of industries – as we know the picture is unique for those transporting construction materials vs. healthcare products or food for example.
So, we’d love to invite you to take the time to participate in our survey and share it with your peers.
