kathyandmayoriCOS LIVE was recently selected to be part of a delegation lead by Auckland City Mayor Len Brown to attend a Tripartite Summit in Los Angles along with companies from various other industries.

NZ owned and operated iCOS LIVE was chosen for its ‘Innovation in Transport’ approach to business. This just happened to be one of the subjects that was discussed at the Summit. According to iCOS LIVE CEO Kathy Ross, Eco systems aren’t something for the future, they’re here now! iCOS LIVE in building their own Eco system in partnership with same technology companies such as Xero and EROAD are at the forefront of this new wave of business development.

Kathy Ross is extremely forthright when it comes to plotting a future for her company. Quite simply she wants iCOS LIVE to become a household name for transport not only in New Zealand but worldwide. “Receiving a personal invitation from Mayor Len Brown to be part of the delegation was a great privilege, I felt very honoured,” she said. “I had no idea of the possibilities when I accepted the invitation. However within hours of returnining home from Los Angeles I received two invitations from people I had met requesting further information on the iCOS LIVE system.”

“The networking opportunities were incredible and I left there feeling as though I had been able to forge some great friendship amongst not only our own team but also with a wide range of participants from other parts of the world. An example of the togetherness experienced at the summit was the willingness of everyone in the New Zealand delegation to deliberately seek out and introduce people who they thought would have compatible business interests.”

“A personal highlight for me was being introduced Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who is being talked up by the press as being a future United States President. He may not be everyone’s favourite but in forging a strong association between the two cities, Mayor Len Brown has done a great job of building a relationship with current incumbent Eric Garcetti and out going Los Angeles Mayor, Tom LaBonge. Len also has developed a bond with Chen Jianhua the Mayor of Guangzhou from the Peoples Republic of China which with that sort of relationship must be worth millions of dollars of exports in the years to come,” said Kathy
iCOS LIVE have been gaining traction in the Australian market, but now, having been on this recent US trade delegation the  opportunity to expoit new markets such as Los Angles and Guangzhou has presented additional growth prospects for the company.

iCOS LIVE is transforming the way transport companies operate by taking them to a paperless world using smart technology. This has allowed transport companys to streamline their processes and give them control and total transparency . Plugging revenue leakages as a result of lost dockets, reducing resources and double handling of information has been just some of the other benefits achieved by using the iCOS LIVE system.

Integrated with Xero this offers a seamless paperless solution. Integrated with EROAD, it provides freight tracking at its best as Eroad know where the trucks are and iCOS LIVE knows what’s on them.
