Mills, a former transport and logistics lecturer at the University of Huddersfield, joins BigChange from US-based video telematics specialist Lytx, where he led its European enterprise sales efforts. He previously held senior business development positions at Microlise and Masternaut, as well as operational roles in the logistics sector.
This appointment signals BigChange’s intention to expand its footprint in the big business market, where organisations have previously relied on legacy workforce management and telematics technologies requiring lengthy installation and integration programmes.
With its scalable, cloud-based JobWatch system proven at 1,200 customers around the world, BigChange expects that a growing number of large organisations in sectors such as logistics, field service, hire, construction, and facilities management will increasingly turn to its technology as their existing systems reach the end of their useful life.
Martin Port, founder and CEO of BigChange, comments: “We are delighted to welcome John to the team. He has a wealth of experience and contacts in the industries that we serve best, and deep understanding around how to shape our offering to make it even more attractive to large corporate customers.”
John Mills, Corporate Sales Director at BigChange, comments: “BigChange has made waves in many sectors by making high-end mobile workforce management technologies available to a far wider range of companies, helping them to compete more effectively, drive efficiencies, and deliver fantastic customer service. BigChange’s functionality far exceeds what can be obtained elsewhere in a single package, and there is a growing appetite from big businesses to take advantage of JobWatch as part of their digital transformation efforts.”
Over 1,200 organisations and 40,000 individual users currently use BigChange’s pioneering mobile workforce management, JobWatch, which combines CRM, smart job scheduling, vehicle tracking, and a series of mobile applications to eliminate paper records, automate manual processes, and facilitate collaboration between companies on the go.
