Big Data

Gather information in the whole supply chain!

Data acquisition

The Big Data topic is both very interesting and a challenge for the postal arena. Posts possess very large volumes of very detailed, historical data. They know exactly the number of trucks and mail men on the road, on the particular day, a year ago or two years ago, etc. The question is what they should do with that data in order to better predict operational demands not only for the mid and long term, but actually today, this hour, this minute.

Data visualization

How to find relevance among the millions of variables? By visualizing the data in pictorial or graphical format!

Because of the way the human brain processes information, it is faster for people to grasp the meaning of many data points when they are displayed in charts and graphs rather than poring over piles of spreadsheets or reading pages and pages of reports. We can help you with setting up this tool for your Big Data analytics.

Data analysis

The Big Data topic is both very interesting and a challenge for the postal arena. Posts possess very large volumes of very detailed, historical data. They know exactly the number of trucks and mail men on the road, on the particular day, a year ago or two years ago, etc.

The question is what they should do with that data in order to better predict operational demands not only for the mid and long term, but actually today, this hour, this minute. There are many areas that could be improved by the implementation of a Big Data strategy, e.g. increasing cost efficiency by unlocking data across the organization (route optimization, network planning, etc.), facilitating new services, predictive maintenance or event management. Big data can also be very helpful with a capacity planning. Knowing what the expected items and their volumes are, informed by many external factors, makes it much more realistic to plan your capacity for the coming 24 hours.

Bringing these topics together, we are talking about how to scale operations and flexibility such that capacity can be increased or decreased in moments rather than days or weeks, combined with the intelligence to make those decisions “on-the-fly”.

Although the Internet of Things sounds fantastic and promises big changes, what does it mean for posts?  For many, the sheer scope of the technology can act as disincentive. As a result, what’s needed is expert navigation from experienced professionals who know how to unlock the potential of the Internet of Postal Things (IoPT).

For any post considering how to get started with an IoPT strategy, Prime Competence is able to share expertise and accelerate the process.

IoPT is about leveraging existing postal assets to deliver more relevant services, timely options for consumers, competitive edge, efficiencies in the network and exploiting new potential revenue streams on the back of unique selling opportunities.

Identification

ADD WORLD CLASS EXPERTISE

What systems are best of breed? What systems do we need for a particular job? What is achievable regarding OCR performance? When the technology is required, posts are finding themselves suddenly in the position with a lot of people knocking on the door, all with different equipment and solutions, saying that they are the best. Some posts have automation experts in-house and some don’t. However, when it comes to a specialist area, they might want to add some expertise and know-how.

We are World class experts on those identification topics. We can bring this experience to your team, truly independent of developers and manufacturers and able to filter according to your application, budget and technical requirements with an eye to real-world performance that only hindsight brings.
