Anton Wattaul GesmbH is a Lower Austrian family-owned business with its headquarters in Pöchlarn. As a specialist in local traffic, the company offers its customers tailor-made transport solutions.
Thanks to the experiences gained during the past four decades, the fleet, the technical services, the company itself and the number of employees have continued to evolve. With its own fleet of more than 230 tractor units and almost 320 employees, the company serves customers every day from the headquarters in Pöchlarn and the logistics centre in Vienna. Moreover, numerous subcontractors are on the road every day for the quality service provider.
Thanks to the extension of the business fields and the distribution depot/logistics centre in Vienna, Wattaul Transporte decided to completely restructure reporting and controlling. In search of a user-friendly software for planning and invoicing, which was to be multi-client capable on the one hand and had to deliver detailed data for reporting on the other hand, Wattaul Transporte opted for Soloplan after having conducted extensive research: “The logistics software CarLo convinced us most,” explains Roland Heindl, Head of Finance and Controlling.
One of the biggest features of this project was the integration of the company’s in-house workshop. The specification of prices, posting of incoming and outgoing payments and inventories allow the user to carry out exact internal cost allocations.
The company philosophy of Wattaul Transporte is to always perform a little bit better at the highest level and this philosophy must also be supported by the software. Jochen Wattaul: “CarLo simplifies our daily workflows on all levels! From invoicing to planning to controlling. Every day, CarLo allows us to automatically create tours and company-relevant data for various reports and key figures.”
Wattaul Transporte had two major goals during the implementation of CarLo. The first one was to integrate the day-to-day business of a constantly growing company without any problems and the second one was to collect more and more detailed data for reporting purposes without sacrificing speed. Thus, the company wanted to focus on future tasks and on optimising all areas.
Jochen Wattaul and Roland Heindl agree on the following: “The question of whether we have achieved the goals we had when introducing the new software, can absolutely be answered with yes!”
