Eonsfleet partners Elixia Tech to digitise, optimise logistics value chains across Africa
As part of efforts to digitise and optimise the logistics value chain across Africa and provide supports to growing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the supply chain and logistics industry, Eonsfleet Prosolutions Limited (EPL), has partnered Elixia Tech (ET), an India based supply chain automation firm to launch Africa’s Supply Chain and Logistics Management Software (SCLMS).
Commenting on the development, founder of EPL, Tokunbo Arannilewa said the focus is to provide innovative technology solutions and services for supply chain and logistics industry in order to enhance real-time visibility, automation and collaboration features needed to increase output, optimise processes and grow businesses.
His words: “According to the 2020 Third-Party Logistics (3PLs) study by Infosys Consulting, 79 per cent of shippers and 77 per cent of 3PLs are expected to launch optimisation initiatives in the coming five years.
We thus identified the three key areas with huge potentials as time and cost optimisation-route, load, and vehicle space.”
“EPL has a legacy of providing innovative technology solutions and service offerings in the telemetry, automotive/connected mobility, and supply chain and logistics market. SCLMS is EPL logistics control tower solution that delivers seamless, end-to-end integration and visibility of all resource and asset movement across distribution networks,” Arannilewa added.
He further explained that the SCLMS proprietary platform combines the functionality of a core operating system with industry-leading data analytics and optimisation.
“SCLMS provides tools to connect key stakeholders, helping you collaborate efficiently and stay on top of your ever-changing supply chain needs such as vendor collaboration, shipment planning, visibility and reporting, accounting and analytics.
“This dynamic design focuses on data management and visibility. It is a unique bird’s-eye view of a company’s entire operations from a single point. It will help to plan and direct resources as and when required with a complete backing of deep analytics. It will also improve user experience with simplified streamlined processes, collaboration between various parties, and others,” Arannilewa stated.
On his part, founder of ET, Sanket Sheth said: “Today, 80 per cent of the logistics accounting work is done manually. And this includes tracking and recording of manual invoices, unbilled LRs, proof of delivery documents, and approvals on claims. This high reliability on manual paper-based processes increases the chances of error and risk of unaccounted loss.”
