Transportes PITIC

Together with the IMPAC team we successfully developed and installed management systems in our Sales and Maintenance Areas and we are finalizing the systems in the systems in the Logistics and Warehouse Areas. Key indicators have been defined that allow us to make better decisions about our business. Since we have multiple locations spread throughout Mexico, the consistency that was established as part of the system important to us.

The Access training was a major support for the systems that were designed and installed in each of the areas.

In addition to the efforts mentioned above, IMPAC has greatly contributed in defining a more efficient organization chart for my company.
