In today’s streetwise environment, providing staff mobility can improve your business’s success by ensuring employees are where they need to be when they need to be there. However, trying to manage this without a staff mobility solution can be a complicated and fickle operation.
From traffic jams to unexpected breakdowns to inaccessible pick-up and drop-off locations, a lot can go wrong during the employee’s journey to your office. Even if your company decides to devote assets to improve employee transport, variables like schedule, vehicle capacity, and more are hard to coordinate and supervise.
So whether you’re intentionally trying to amplify the problem or allowing employees to find their own way to work, employee transport can drain your resources, costing you time and money.
Your business doesn’t have to settle for public transportation options. Shuttlers can help solve many commuting problems your employees face to ensure your workforce is on time, productive and efficient.
Unpredictable situations lead to unreliable employee transportation
Transporting employees from the mainland to the Island seems simple, but delays caused by breakdowns, construction, accidents, and other unpredictable situations can make something simple into a complex equation.
1 hour and 15 minutes That’s the average journey time to and from work in Lagos. Your employees not leaving their homes on time, with some of the traffic variables could cause a loss for your company.
Although accidents and traffic congestion are not predictable, it doesn’t mean you can’t react to them as soon as you know about them. With Shuttlers’ employee transport solution, every contact person stays informed of the transit situation at all times.
Using the advanced technology of Shuttlers allows you to find the most reliable and efficient way to transport your employees, helping you reduce expense and maximize utilization.
Through Shuttlers’ dynamic routing, pilots, riders, businesses, and other users stay informed if an accident or other event causes delays. Live tracking and monitoring systems optimize the route to get the pilots back on track to pick up and drop off employees in a timely manner.
To ensure that nothing gets in the way of getting employees to work and back, multiple backup (reprotection) systems are in place so that your employees are picked up and dropped off safely and on time.
Ensure the quality of vehicles and drivers
Outsourcing employee transport is a common solution as transport is not usually the primary function of the business. However, there can be a lack of control and a disconnect between your operations team and a company that just rents out buses.
