TruckEast Case Study
After being with their original software provider for 14 years, it was time for TruckEast to make a change. According to Helen Moore, Compliance and Human Resources General Manager at TruckEast, they were encountering numerous issues with the software, ranging from its dated appearance to poor system compatibility.
I get the feeling that (Engage EHS) actively want us to use the system as much as we can and it’s nice that (they) don’t just sell you something and walk away
