PGT Trucking required a solution that would give them the ability to accurately and efficiently make use of their data. There was a specific need to gather and present their data, which came from multiple platforms. With such large amounts of data, PGT Trucking needed a way to report and display their metrics without custom, complicated IT Projects. The ultimate goal was to have this data available to make use of and be able to do so in a simple, easily accessible manner.
“Immediate knowledge in operations has contributed to increased safety performance across the fleet. Large time savings have been seen in having a single place to view multiple pieces of information, eliminating the need for multiple spreadsheets and screens.”

PGT Trucking began the search for a flexible, easy to use dashboard solution that had a small learning curve. After researching a number of other dashboard software companies, PGT Trucking realized iDashboards best met their needs. Its ease-of-use, ability to provide in-depth insight into their mass amounts of multi operational and financial data, and the capability to pull from their iSeries, SQL Server and MS Server databases, put iDashboards ahead of the competition.
Since the iDashboards implementation, PGT Trucking utilizes their dashboards on a daily basis in their management and operations departments, from the staff all the way up to executives. The ability to have immediate knowledge in operations with trucking dashboards has contributed to increased safety performance across the fleet. iDashboards has also fulfilled the need for presenting all of their data in a way that leads to making effective business decisions. Having a single place to view multiple pieces of information, available at-a-glance, has eliminated the need for multiple spreadsheets and screens, saving the organization time and resources.
