Want To Increase Your Business Profit? You Need to Learn This Man’s Secret First
Dan Poulsen has been in the trucking industry for 25 years and owns his own dirt trucking company that focuses on new development. His company, D&D Trucking, has been using the Clear Task Solutions app for the past two years.
The following is an interview with Dan to talk about what his experience with Clear Task Solutions has been like:
Question: Why did you start using Clear Task Solutions?
Dan Poulsen: To free up my time and to have accurate records about each job.
Question: What benefits has D&D Trucking found in using Clear Task Solutions?
Dan Poulsen: There has been a rough 10% increase in business profit due to efficiency. Meaning, I didn’t put as much out in labor and getting trucks moved around. I am able to bill my customers faster because my trucks wouldn’t have to sit and wait for me to say, “Okay you need to go to this pit. Here’s the information, here’s the address, and this is how you get there.” Then, answer all the questions that come along with switching a job.
If I had five trucks then I would have to call five different people. I would average fifteen minutes a phone call, which was actually a fast phone call, because there are a lot of questions to answer. Now using Clear Task Solutions, [my employees] have all the information as soon as I have it.
That upped our hours worked to hours billed by quite a bit. I found money where I didn’t know that any more money could be made.
Question: How has your staff felt about using Clear Task Solutions?
Dan Poulsen: The best story is Steve, because he got mad at me for not making him use the Clear Task Solution app. Because, now it’s all on a single platform and now it’s simpler to get all the information.
Question: What advice would you give to a company that is scared to make the leap to an electronic dispatching system?
Dan Poulsen: It’s coming whether you like it or not. This is the way that business is going to be.
Question: Why do you recommend Clear Task Solutions to other trucking companies?
Dan Poulsen: I went from putting out fires hourly to managing problems. Running D&D Trucking used to be a lot of chaos, now Clear Task Solutions takes all the confusion out of the day.
When the drivers get told to go somewhere, they know where they are going, what they are supposed to be doing, and the reason they are doing it. Were as before, it use to be, “just head that way and I will call you in a minute,” because you didn’t want to have the trucks just sitting there. Then, the drivers were on edge because they did not know exactly where they were going and what they are supposed to be doing.
Now when they have the information, they have it. So, Clear Task Solution has taken all the confusion out of the dispatching process.
