MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The CGU Commerce Ballarat Business Excellence Awards represent an opportunity for residents, customers, clients and business people to recognise the contribution that businesses make within the Ballarat region. These awards are the highlight of the business sectors' year and are the culmination of many months of assessing a plethora of innovative and worthwhile projects and organisations within the region.
Veolia Environmental Services was recognised for its unique and 'best-practice' Paperless Truck System (PTS). PTS commenced in 2003, and whilst the initial project was to be run purely as a dispatch system for Veolia's operations in Victoria, the scope was soon increased to become a total logistics management tool for all of Australia; providing both industry-leading fleet management technology and advanced waste-tracking functionality. Today PTS incorporates more functionality such as monitoring and reporting on third-party subcontractors, and a host of other innovative reporting capabilities.
PTS was further rolled out nationally in 2009 and allows Veolia to continue to improve customer service, comply more effectively with OH&S and other statutory requirements and help contain fleet management.
Recognition of Veolia's innovative approach to fleet and logistics management at these awards is testament to a whole-of-company approach to continuous improvement and delivery of superior customer service.
"Veolia is extremely proud to have been named the winner of the Innovation and Technology award. Ballarat has such a dynamic business community and we are very fortunate to be able to work with the local businesses and community, and more so, we are very appreciative that our solutions and technologies have been so readily accepted. We would like to thank the University of Ballarat and all local businesses for their support and recognition." Marc Churchin General Manager – Commercial Services, Veolia Environmental Services, Victoria.
Veolia was amongst some of Ballarat's most prolific businesses to be recognised at the recent awards night.
