A new integrated route planning and electronic proof of delivery (ePOD) app has been launched to manage the complete process for fleets.
The product by TranSend can be deployed on stadard Android devices, David Cook, managing director at TranSend said: "We have spoken with many small and medium-size delivery operations who say that one of the main barriers to ePOD implementation, is the process of building routes to provide the necessary data to feed into a proof of delivery system.
"TranSend is unique in providing integrated route planning and ePOD as a single solution. All the client has to do is provide an order file and TranSend does everything else."
The Android app can be downloaded on the driver’s own device, which means that any subcontractors can user the same system.
Back at the office, TranSend provides complete visibility of the route using GPS tracking from the mobile device, capturing any events and exceptions that have occurred along the route and managing driver compliance against the planned route.
TranSend also allows the customer to design their own KPI dashboards, for real-time views of the operation in a format that is easy to visualise, understand and interrogate.
