PICit & Customs Service!
Hos PICit er vi stolte over at kunne fortælle, at vi i oktober gik i luften med en ny kunde, Customs Service, som nu anvender vores told-modul til import og eksport tolddokumenter.
I forbindelse med opstarten har vi spurgt de ansatte hos Customs Service, hvad de synes om PICit og vores systemer. Nedenfor kan du læse et uddrag af svarene:
Hvorfor valgte I PICit?
Vi kendte til PICit i forvejen og det er efter vores opfattelse en serviceorienteret virksomhed, der sikrer, at kunderne får en god oplevelse. Kommunikationen med PICit har altid været præget af ærlighed, åbenhed samt en vilje, der er smittende.
Hvordan synes I PICit adskiller sig fra konkurrerende virksomheder?
Opfølgning og engagement er i top hos PICit, hvilket vi sjældent oplever i samme grad hos andre leverandører.
God service, imødekommende og hurtig respons.
Hvordan synes I opstartsfasen med PICit har været?
Den har helt klart været overvejende positiv, på trods af de udfordringer, der er forbundet med at være en nyopstartet virksomhed med mange bolde i luften. Der har været en exceptionel opfølgning fra hele PIC-teamet og vi har altid følt os hørt, selv ved særligt toldtekniske udfordringer.
Hvordan påvirker brugen af PIC jeres daglige arbejdsgang?
Her i opstartsfasen er det en kombination af at gøre vores arbejdsgang både hurtigere og langsommere, men i det lange løb forventer vi helt klart at PIC vil blive et rent effektiviseringsværktøj. PIC hjælper med at samle alle vores forskelligartede opgaver i samme system, hvilket gør både fremsøgning af sager, afregning og statistik nemmere. Generelt er systemet nemt, overskueligt og brugervenligt.
Hvordan oplever I PICit’s kundeservice?
Vi er positivt overrasket over responstiden og tilbagemeldingerne – de sidder altid klar til at hjælpe. Man føler der bliver taget hånd om sagen, uanset om det er en haste-opgave eller et ønske til en fremtidig ændring. Selv når et problem ikke kan løses med det samme, er kommunikationen hurtig og klar, hvilket gør udvekslingen meget bedre.
Hos PICit er vi meget taknemmelige for denne tilbagemelding, og vi er stolte af, at vi sammen har formået at lykkes med dette projekt, på trods af diverse Corona-udfordringer.

Nye initiativer i PICmobile!
Da der fra chaufførerne har været stor efterspørgsel efter muligheden for at kunne vælge mellem Engelsk og Dansk som sprogmulighed i Mobile Self Gate programmet på PICmobile, har vi hos PICit udviklet sprogvalg.
For at kunne støtte chaufførerne bedst muligt, bliver det derfor fremadrettet muligt for den enkelte chauffør at vælge mellem Engelsk og Dansk i Mobile Self Gate programmet.
I den forbindelse er det vigtigt for os at understrege, at der ikke er ændret ved funktionaliteten i Mobile Self Gate programmet, men at der blot er tale om en forbedring af brugeroplevelsen.
Ydermere har du måske bemærket at PICmobile applikationen har gennemgået en visuel opdatering, for at forbedre læsevenligheden.
Skulle du have spørgsmål i forbindelse med implementeringen af den nye sprogmulighed, er du mere end velkommen til at kontakte vores Support.
Hos PICit ønsker vi alle en god sommer!
New initiatives in PICmobile!
We have received several requests from drivers regarding the opportunity to choose between English and Danish languages in the Mobile Self Gate programme on PICmobile. Therefore, we are proud to announce that this is now in production.
To be able to support the drivers in the best possible way, it will prospectively be possible for each driver to choose between English and Danish in the Mobile Self Gate programme.
In relation to the development of this initiative, it is important to us to underline that no functionalities or features have been changed in the Mobile Self Gate programme. It is solely an improvement of the user experience.
Moreover, you might have noticed that the PICmobile application has been visually updated to improve the reader-friendliness.
If you have any questions regarding the new language opportunity, feel free to contact our Support.
At PICit we wish you a great summer!

Green Cargo and PICit
Green Cargo launches a new IT system, PICit, encompassing the company’s entire domestic rail traffic in Norway. The launch began with the Alnabru — Trondheim railway route in mid-March. Green Cargo now has standardized, digital working methods for bookings to deliveries that facilitate status updates for customers’ freight wagons and units. A key component of the launch is that Green Cargo can now offer both online and EDI bookings including track & trace.
“In response to customer demands for Bane NOR, formerly Jernbaneverket, and Green Cargo to modernize our procedures, we chose a digital solution with PICit to replace our previous procedures based on Excel. Our new IT system provides an improved interface for online and EDI bookings with a track & trace system that shows the location status of our customers’ units in the transportation chain. Bane NOR’s requirements included a more reliable system that facilitates the traceability of our rail freight, and which we can now ensure,” says Helena Wetterwik, Senior Project Manager and Project Leader at Green Cargo.
The IT system will compile all transportation and freight data and make it accessible for all parties in the transportation chain — from booking, planning trains, matching train capacity, terminal handling services, invoicing and follow-up. It will manage and control the information flow from the moment the goods leave the sender until their arrival at the recipient.
“This development project has been particularly successful thanks to the excellent collaboration between Green Cargo and PICit. Every procedure, from bookings, storage and terminal operations, disposition and operation of rail transportation to invoicing is now supported by a system in which PICit’s modules have been integrated in real-time into one single Software as a Service solution. Over and above the internal operative and administrative advantages, the system also integrates with other systems, which is an additional gain for Green Cargo, its customers and their operating environment. We are very proud that this system is now operational and we look forward to continuing the positive partnership with Green Cargo,” says Henrik Højen Andersen, CEO of PICit.
All the personnel — forklift operators, train drivers and administrative staff in Norway now use the new system. Green Cargo’s customers also receive a short demo on how to make bookings and follow status updates.
“The greatest impacts and gains from using PICit for Green Cargo is that we can provide our customers with online and EDI bookings including track & trace, and that it provides us with better internal control,” Helena Wetterwik concludes.

CMP and PICit in new collaboration agreement
Copenhagen Malmö Port, CMP, and PICit are entering into a new agreement whereby PICit will supply the PIC TOS logistics system to CMP.
”We are delighted to be able to announce the new agreement with CMP. We have wanted to supply PIC TOS to CMP for some time as it is of major significance to our mutual customers, who will benefit greatly from the agreement. PICit and CMP have already worked closely together in connection with the implementation of SOLAS / VGM at CMP. I am eagerly looking forward to continuing to develop this excellent partnership”, says PICit A/S’s CEO Henrik Højen Andersen.
The fundamental idea behind PIC TOS is to collect all information about transports/loads and make it available for all parties in the transport chain.
”It is important for CMP to find a supplier and a system which links together our processes and those of our customers. We know from experience that PICit meets the high level of requirements that CMP places on professionalism, quality and speed. They have detailed knowledge of both our operations and those of our customers, as well as of the prevailing conditions for the container operation in Scandinavia. This means that PICit has great understanding of how we want to work”, says Jacob Fogh, Terminal manager, Port & Terminal Operations at CMP in Copenhagen.
”The project to implement PIC TOS is already under way, the plan is to go live in late November 2016. CMP and PICit will together set a more specific date in early November. A large number of parties are affected by a TOS implementation, and it is important that we have an effective transition from the implementation project to it becoming operational so that it satisfies all parties involved”, Henrik Højen Andersen concludes.
