Decisiv SRM Platform is Providing Measurable Savings for Oakley Transport
Decisiv SRM at Oakley
Prior to adopting the Decisiv SRM platform, Oakley Transport was handling scheduled and unscheduled service and repair events using a manual and time consuming process. Today, under the direction of Pete Nativo, Oakley Transport’s Director of Maintenance, they are using the Decisiv SRM platform for about 200 external repair orders per month as well as towing requests.
“Before we had the SRM platform, we often had to keep drivers on hold while we were talking to vendors. Now, the phone lines are open for drivers to contact our breakdown department and they don’t get frustrated being on hold for long time periods. The Decisiv platform helps us improve driver productivity and asset utilization by about 10%.”
Director of Maintenance,
“Handling maintenance and repair events is easier and more efficient with the Decisiv platform. Overall I would guess we’re spending 40-50% less time on the phone. Before using the platform, it could take 10-15 calls and hours to handle one problem.
The Decisiv platform takes all of the ‘he said, she said’ out, so everything is transparent. If one team member is unavailable, anyone can open the case and see all the information without the need to access multiple platforms or portals.”

SRM in action
The Decisiv SRM platform provides service, repair and breakdown event management capabilities for locating service providers and initiating service requests, and communicating during service events about estimates and approvals and status updates.
With access to vehicle telematics data, including fault codes from the Volvo Remote Diagnostics telematics platform, service history, specifications, warranty and other in-context information, decisions are made almost immediately as to whether the vehicle can be driven or needs a tow to the nearest service provider in Oakley’s network, or can return safely to the company’s shop.
Once a service or repair event is initiated, the Decisiv SRM platform serves as a means of communication and collaboration between Oakley Transport and its service providers. All estimates and approvals are handled on the platform quickly and efficiently using established rules of engagement, providing an electronic trail for verification and for eliminating estimate-invoice mismatches.
For Oakley, the Decisiv SRM platform enables a consistent process that streamlines internal and external communications, reduces paper forms and improves documentation. Workflow assignments and time/date stamped activity creates a level of transparency and accountability for internal and external teams.
