Case Study: Transportation
At Ultramatics, our information technology knowledge and experience is complimented by a deep understanding of and experience in many major industry verticals, including the Travel and Transportation Industry. We understand that the challenges faced by the Travel and Transportation Industry, while similar to the challenges faced by other companies, have unique attributes that have to be addressed.
Transportation Industry Challenges
Aging Infrastructure Systems
Many travel and transportation business are using decades-old systems to support their infrastructure and business needs. These systems are inflexible and cannot support the immediate and strategic decisions that require effective data analysis, collaboration, and coordination across the value chain. While many companies have existing staff that is intimately familiar with legacy systems, they need consultative and staff augmentation services to help them integrate and modernize their systems with newer Web technologies.
Product-Focused Business Models
Many Travel and Transportation companies continue to work with processes that have a systems or product focus rather than a customer focus. As customers grow more sophisticated and demand access to information in real time, companies must shift their focus to the customer in order to grow their business. Rather than paying third-party and fourth-party logistics providers to provide customer focus, Ultramatics can help you integrate and modernize your legacy systems to help you transform your business.
The movement and storage of supplies and merchandise poses huge security challenges. Theft, fraud, injury, and inefficient business practices are all challenges faced by transportation companies under the more general heading of security challenges.
Data security is another challenge that is facing the Travel and Transportation industry. Intellectual Property (IP) and other information assets require protection. IP, including price points and confidential customer and membership information's value lies in keeping it safe and secure for the sole use of your organization. Ultramatics will help you establish a process for keeping such information secure during file transfers and storage.
Changing Regulatory Landscape
As in many industries, the regulatory landscape for the Travel and Transportation industry is ever changing. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing more stringent rules to control stormwater from transportation sources in addition to other regulations addressing air quality and other transportation-related issues. Laws and regulations regarding customs and border crossing are also changing rapidly in the face of increased attention to the national security threat that these areas may pose.
