Mesilla Valley Transportation (MVT) is one of the largest transportation providers in Western Texas and Southern New Mexico, with a fleet of 800 trucks and 3,500 trailers that haul goods across North America. To manage costs, MVT needs to watch every penny and count every mile per gallon, per driver. Yet, employees struggled to understand profitability and performance, manually cobbling together information from siloed data sources using disparate tools. After deploying an interoperable suite of Microsoft business intelligence technologies, staff members can access, manipulate, and share data using familiar Microsoft Office technologies and dashboards with drill-down capabilities. With reliable business data, MVT is measuring the efficacy of its cost-saving initiatives, motivating employees to perform better, cutting costs, and driving profitability to stay competitive.
