Customers & Testimonials

“Our productivity and efficiency has gone through the roof. We had initially hoped for a 10% increase in productivity, however Dakota’s Maintenance & Inspection solution has far exceeded our expectations – instead we have achieved a 40% increase in productivity. The system has basically paid for itself in under two months.”

Depot Manager

Intercounty Truck & Van, Boston (Mercedes-Benz Franchise)

"We are delighted to have worked alongside Dakota on this exciting, revolutionary and forward-thinking voice-enabled maintenance and inspection project. Not only have inspection times been halved and our workers are now much safer, we have also achieved a streamlined method of sending timely and accurate inspection reports back to China, as well as ensuring 100% compliance with industry standards. The far-reaching benefits of voice mean that the system has basically paid for itself."

Managing Director

LiuGong UK

“The benefits of the new solution are incredible. Pick lists are sent directly to the workers via their headsets, enabling them to seamlessly move between different product picks at various locations in the warehouse. While it is too early for meaningful statistical analysis, there are already visible signs of significant upturns in productivity. Dakota, along with its partners Mountain Leverage, couldn’t have been more helpful.”

Commercial Director

Not only do they recommend the most suitable products for our requirements, they also take the time to fully understand what these requirements are in order to make the most appropriate hardware suggestions, and that for us is invaluable.”
