Bob Denton, Owner

`The benefits for me have been huge!`

Elios transport specialize in container movement in the Auckland metro area.
Bob Denton – Owner / Operator, needed a system to help him manage and grow his business by automating administrative processes.

Being a National Road carrier member they lead him to iCOS – one of their preferred suppliers since the offering of their new product iCOS LIVE.

Having not used a computer in my life, says Bob Denton,
I didn’t need the worry of implementing a system in-house – providing IT infrastructure, doing backups, iCOS LIVE and Xero take care of all that.

The benefits for me have been huge!

iCOS LIVE has made my business proficient.

Jobs are entered online by my customers rather than being done and added to the system afterward, therefore guaranteeing nil revenue leakage not to mention missed jobs.

  • iCOS LIVE has given me a tool to double check myself, no more double handling.
  • Within seconds either my customer or I can pull up job history online and satisfy any queries which is such a time saver for me.
  • Every minute of every day I know where I am and what I am charging out. It’s the first time ever I have not had to sit down at night and add up my dockets – iCOS LIVE does this for you, so I can see at any moment exactly how much money I have charged out.
  • Never before have I got my invoices out for the current month, now I’m getting them out at the end of each week. So I’m one happy man.
  • The integration between iCOS LIVE and Xero online accounting is so seamless you would think they were one and the same.
  • The the system updates cargo movements in real time, so my customers can follow their containers from uplift to delivery online, saving me hours of time on the phone and double handling.
