Warwick-based software developer Rivo is delighted to announce the successful installation of a risk-management solution with Stobart Group. Rivo now provides risk management software for Stobart Group, City Link, Wincanton and Scania UK.

As the UK’s leader in multimodal logistics, warehousing and biomass fuel sectors, Stobart Group is one of the most recognised and strongest brands in Britain, best known for its iconic Eddie Stobart trucks. With a road haulage fleet of some 2,280 trucks and over six million square feet of premium quality warehousing, Eddie Stobart has the best vehicle utilisation in the industry, helping to maximise efficiency and environmental benefits.

Stobart Group decided to replace its existing risk management system which was limited by flexibility. Rivo rapidly implemented the new system within 3 weeks using a powerful configuration tool which enables the user interface to meet exact requirements. The use of Stobart specific terminology within the system and the ability for the software to match Stobart’s existing processes means that user adoption and the quality of data input has already improved significantly.

Rivo Director Matt Duckhouse says, “Stobart Group was looking for a flexible, rapidly configured solution to meet its specific requirements. It needed a platform that would seamlessly integrate and support its existing processes and encourage high levels of user adoption, alongside instant results to demonstrate the reasons for implementing the system in the first place. This is a significant partnership for Rivo Software and confirms our methodology is successful across large scale, complex installations in very short timescales. We’re delighted to welcome Stobart Group to the Rivo community.”

Rivo Software are developing their knowledge of the industry even further by running a Transport & Logistics – Safety Management event on Thursday March 29th in Warwick. The event will see industry speakers talk about their experiences and offer educational sessions to enable delegates to improve existing processes.
