Living in a 1% world

Date: 19/08/20

Gradually more, we’re living in a 1% world.

In this world, commerce is increasingly commoditised and competition is fiercer than ever before, to the point that margins are wafer thin for many. Only those that are efficient and lean can survive. And with online trading continuing to grow exponentially, this trend is set to persist for the foreseeable future.

Successful companies already know this. They’re successful because they spend their time looking for 1% improvements in everything they do. In the beginning, there is basically no difference between making a choice that is 1% better or 1% worse. But as time goes on, these small improvements or declines compound and you suddenly find a very big gap between people who make slightly better decisions on a daily basis and those who don’t.

Over a period of time, 1% can mean the difference between success and failure.

At Ardent, we’re obsessed by the 1% rule in everything we do. And now we offer the benefits of this thinking through our multi-award winning telematics information platform, Site Manager.

Site Manager helps customers achieve that 1%. It reduces fuel idling, it reduces hire duration times, it questions the need for multiple pieces of equipment when one will do. Site Manager identifies potential issues with equipment which, if left unaddressed, could result in costly damage bills. CheckMate helps identify issues early on before they develop into more serious problems that might result in downtime. Ardent TV helps reduce fitter callout charges and reduces downtime. There is more, much more.

The best way to understand how you can benefit from 1% thinking is by contacting us today. And because data is at the heart of everything we do, we can show you the fantastic results being enjoyed by other forward thinking and dynamic companies who have embraced this concept.
