Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/08/2016 -- Companies that deliver on paper are missing the key advantages of real-time communication and automation. With today's strict standards for track and trace, extending the automated processes beyond the warehouse to the time of delivery is the next logical step. Knowing the right case was delivered to the right stop at the right time is imperative to protect your customers and your brand as well as to maintain compliance. AFS Technologies' Electronic Proof of Delivery (ePoD) is a mobile application used in the field to track a product's activity from warehouse to customer delivery, supporting just-in-time electronic delivery confirmation including signature captures, photos, and GPS coordinates. It also tracks truck inventory on a real-time basis as well as providing a level of customer account information that enables personnel to make fast and precise deliveries.
The net result is an improved best practice process. When managing thin margins, making every effort count is critical to achieving profitability. This requires evaluating manual and time-intensive processes to ascertain if automation will help to increase productivity, improve customer satisfaction and better manage:
- Order delivery accuracy
- Seamless product recalls
- Customer service
- Reduction in delivery errors
- Control return/pick up process
- Check-in and check-out activities
- Back-office processes such as invoicing and reconciliation
