Schneider is featured as the cover story of the current issue of Profit Magazine in an article titled "Vehicle for Change: Data Drives Schneider's Strategy for Employee and Operational Excellence." The article discusses Quest, a five year transformational initiative, which truly changed every aspect of their business. The central tenet of Quest was simple: give drivers, customers, and business partners convenient access to the information and services they need while improving back-office processes to drive operational efficiency and profitability. Oracle Transportation Management was an integral part of that transformation. Judy Lemke, executive vice president and CIO at Schneider states “We have not only realized the goals we set out to achieve but have surpassed the benefits we anticipated going in. The foundation laid over those five years of transformation has now become an outstanding platform for current operations and a springboard to even greater possibilities in the future.” Read the full article here.
