BDP Wakestone is a successful logistics company with an annual turnover of 670 million CZK . With its 40 employees strong>, it adapts the services to client requests to fulfill their expressed and unspoken wishes.
In 2005, a group of employees from a large multinational company decided to leave and set up its own logistics company called Wakestone. Their motivation was to offer innovative services in local conditions and to be a market leader in the segment of quality of service offered. They wanted to deliver custom solutions to their customers and flexibly meet their needs.
Stanislav Turek, the co-founder of the company, describes the business path: “We want to bring products to the market that respond to customer requirements” . Nikolas Paschalis, CEO of the company, shows how they do this: “Our business has been about people and technology from the very beginning. In order to really respond flexibly to customer requirements, we need above-average employees who can respond quickly to change. And cutting edge IT technology. “
Technology helped the company to interact with customers online. “We have been developing the E.STONE web application strong> together with ABRA since the first days of our company, and its primary task is to offer customers online data they need, such as complete business case information,” >describes Nikolas Paschalis. What benefits does the application bring the customers, states Stanislav Turek: “Each client has up-to-date data on each shipment, including documentation and invoicing. API. “
Stanislav Kurinec, team leader of custom programming in ABRA Software, says about E.STONE: “System is characterized by the fact that it is constantly being developed, it adapts to the needs of the clients and does not require more intervention in their IT technologies and infrastructure. In the system, the client has not only data tables but also a clear dashboard to which he can personally drag widgets (HTML5) or the simplicity and clarity of an application that is of utmost importance to each client.”
After the establishment of Wakeston in 2005 and the successful start-up, the logistics business has been greatly affected by the global crisis. “At the time of the crisis, we were thinking about how to help our customers with their troubles, we lived for their problems, and at that time businesses were run more carefully, the initial optimism was gone. Seasonality changed, companies started to order in smaller amounts for longer periods, ordering cycles accelerated, high volatility in freight prices appeared. On our side, this has required cost-saving measures and pressure for even greater flexibility and creativity, “says Stanislav Turek. “We had thoroughly analyzed our customer portfolio, we had been keeping a closer eye on costs, but we had been investing, and we’ve seen the crisis as a great opportunity.”
Investing in times of crisis and preparedness for further changes in the global markets paradoxically helped Wakeston and stabilized the company.
Depending on how the customer works with E.STONE, we are better able to predict what needs our customer may have or how we can help our customer to work even more efficiently.Stanislav TurekCo-founder of the Wakestone company
