FROM A TO B TO USP.
Dansk Transport Kompagni (DTK) is an umbrella company, spanning a group of current and prospective firms within the transport, warehousing and logistics sectors. Active both in Denmark and abroad, the Danish group is always on the lookout for new ways to expand their portfolio of solutions and to address the individual needs of the businesses under their wing. As a forward-thinking company with almost 30 years of experience in the industry, DTK is also focused on improving its own internal processes and operations. When it comes to streamlining the digital side of the business, Peter Gura, Head of IT, knew this meant addressing two key concerns: digitalisation and process automation. When choosing the ideal software for the DTK’s strategy, Peter decided to rely on recommendations from colleagues – a journey that brought him to Lobster_data.
LOBSTER: SPEAKING THE LOGISTICS LINGO.
Similarly to DTK, the Lobster Group is also looking to help businesses thrive. Only their modus operandi is IT-centric and involves concepts such as EDI, EAI, ELT/ETL, process automation and many more. With three user-friendly software solutions for data integration, process automation and product information management as well as an innovative logistics platform, Lobster is focused on connecting people, systems and things. Linking everything with everything else. And keeping IT simple, secure and scalable. The company’s vision is uniquely focussed on rethinking digital transformation. A distinct approach to information and communication concepts, that has positioned the software provider as a key driver in developing the digital world of tomorrow. With offices in Germany, the Nordics, France, the UK and the Benelux countries, it wasn’t long before Peter Gura was made aware of Lobster and its flagship solution Lobster_data. And, with a customer retention rate of 99.5%, it was no surprise that the two colleagues the IT expert consulted about the software gave glowing reviews – prompting him to get in touch with Lobster.
LOBSTER_DATA TO THE RESCUE.
In consideration of similar business cases and following a POC, Lobster suggested DTK consider implement their flagship solution Lobster_data. The middleware solution makes transferring business-relevant data secure and transparent – no matter the format, system or platform. Thanks to its ability to integrate both internal and intercompany data flows, Lobster_data has become synonymous for seamless connections between in-house teams and external partners such as service providers, suppliers and customers. One of Peter’s key considerations was digitalising parts of DTK’s operations, so Lobster_data’s ability to convert, manipulate and enrich business data within an intuitive GUI proved to be a big selling point.
AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
In light of the many advantages offered by Lobster – including time savings, cost cutting opportunities, efficiency gains and ease of use – DTK acknowledged that Lobster_data was a no-brainer when it came to implementing data integration and process automation plans.
The solution’s no-code design means that even business people within DTK are now able to help configure applications, ultimately generating efficiencies, freeing up IT resources and saving money. The ROI of the solution is further amplified since Lobster_data has been implemented in a fraction of the time needed to set up most other solutions. What’s more, within two days of training, the team learned how to work with the solution autonomously. Of course, Lobster’s support team and comprehensive self-support options are always there to help with any potential hiccups, but DTK’s digitalisation strategy can essentially be implemented in no time.
Having joined Lobster’s growing customer base, the Danish firm is now in the initial phase of deploying the solution. First on the agenda is integrating a selection of customers with which to start exchanging data electronically. This will streamline inbound and outbound data exchange, automate standard processes, avoid errors due to manual data entries and free up capacity in the company as a whole.
