PE firm needs group to lead digital transformation for portco

A VP at a LMM PE firm came to us with a critical need for a group that could lead their transportation portco through a full digital transformation project. With the portco’s field service division expanding rapidly and potentially tripling in size soon, they were experiencing pain points related to the amount of paperwork that had to be handled as they dispatched their growing number of employees throughout the region. They urgently needed an IT strategy practitioner with experience in the LMM, transportation industry, and field services area that could help them take steps towards becoming fully paperless.
