Scandit, the developer of the leading software-based barcode scanning solutions for smart phones, tablets and wearable devices, has announced the launch of a new mobile Proof of Delivery (POD) solution designed to improve efficiency for an increasingly mobile workforce by enabling the use of smart phones and wearable devices to keep track of pickups and deliveries.
Companies using Scandit's solution benefit from a single app that supports all driver tasks and enterprise-grade barcode scanning that eliminates the need for costly dedicated barcode scanning devices.
The Scandit Proof of Delivery solution includes a customizable and easily deployable proof-of-delivery app (for iOS and Android) combined with Scandit's Enterprise Mobility and Data Capture Cloud, and easily integrates with existing enterprise IT infrastructures. It supports all delivery tasks, including navigation, geo-tagged signature capture and barcode scanning equivalent to dedicated devices. The solution can easily be distributed to corporate devices or downloaded by third-party contractors ensuring that everyone in the delivery chain - drivers, contractors and even part-time workers - can track deliveries in real time.
"The mobilization of today's workforce can result in significant efficiencies and lower costs across the entire supply chain, especially when combined with enterprise-grade barcode scanning and data capture," says Samuel Mueller, Scandit CEO.
"Our new Proof of Delivery solution offers equivalent scanning performance to dedicated scanners at a fraction of the cost, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) over dedicated device alternatives," he further adds.
Scandit's Proof of Delivery solution is designed to extend the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Transportation Management Systems (TMS) or Warehouse Management System (WMS) to the mobile workforce of today's logistics providers, express couriers and postal carriers. Its intuitive mobile workflows fit seamlessly into existing delivery processes, eliminating paperwork, reducing errors and increasing productivity across the workforce.
