The obstacles they faced
In a highly competitive sector like logistics and transportation, companies are constantly challenged to optimize their processes and improve the experience. WideTech needed to offer continuous optimization and provide a versatile geolocation platform that would enable its customers to deliver products on time, optimize delivery routes and provide security in their supply chains.
To better serve its customers, WideTech wanted the ability to collect real-time data while maintaining a secure IT environment to offer its customers technology and timely information for decision making and generate predictive analytics to help its customers save resources, money and time. To achieve this, it counted on Rackspace Technology® as a permanent partner. Now, WideTech enables its customers to take proactive, preventative steps in addition to corrective action in its pursuit of optimized delivery solutions.
“The solution we provide to our customers is based on geolocation and automation technology. Day by day, we have been advancing to offer more services, but this would not be possible if we did not have the services and availability provided by Rackspace Technology that allow us to manage our platforms efficiently.”
