8. As the system can follow the history of every request, it can also help preparing invoices or cost reports to customers’ other profit centres. This saves on administrative costs and decreases invoicing lead time, plus increases accuracy. It also protects against double-charging by supplier transport companies, and makes sure no finished job escapes invoicing.
