TeamTalk helps Wai Shing Limited’s vege business grow
Wai Shing Limited, based in Pukekohe, is one of the largest commercial growing operations in the country, providing quality vegetables throughout New Zealand as well as overseas. Their produce is grown in highly fertile land and includes cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, silverbeet, carrots, onions, squash, pumpkin and potatoes.
The family-owned business, established in 1961, is managed by three brothers, who each have responsibility for separate parts of the business. Frank Ng-Waishing one of the three brothers, handles the cropping and domestic sales side of the business.
With over 30 vehicles on the road at any given time and as part of Wai Shing’s aim for consistent service, Frank was keen to keep track of their deliveries to ensure they were made on time.
Wai Shing were already using TeamTalk’s Fleetlink network for their radio communications and knew they had other products up their sleeve, so were confident they would have a solution for them.
True to his expectations, TeamTalk suggested Frank trial XLERATE in some of his vehicles to see how it performed. XLERATE would not only meet the need of delivery reporting but also has the capacity to track off-road kilometres to help Frank manage their Road User Charges.
“I’ve now got XLERATE in four vehicles and it’s working really well,” says Frank. “I receive reports every morning at 5am and check through to make sure everything’s running to schedule. If there are any problems, I can deal with them straight away.”
Frank was also extremely impressed with the training provided for XLERATE. “It was outstanding and free and the follow-up was top notch.”
