Codegate, the mobile data capture specialist, has launched MobileCourier - a software solution that addresses a wide range of distribution and delivery needs.
The application is designed to improve field force management and the flow of information. It bypasses the need for mobile workers to deal with vast quantities of paperwork when handling transactions at the depot, or during pick-up or delivery.
The MobileCourier solution enables users to have instant access to the most up-to-date information boosting productivity whilst reducing costs and saving time. Codegates software covers a variety of logistical operations from dispatch and delivery through to asset or equipment tracking.
The solution can also manage a diverse array of events, including dispatching; recording items collected or arriving at the depot; preparing the delivery manifest; recording delivery (including proof of delivery signature); and recording vehicle-to-vehicle transfers. When used with image capture technology MobileCourier enables visual information, such as photographs of damaged goods or the front doors of no one home deliveries, to be captured to help prove that agreed service levels are being met or exceeded.
MobileCourier can be used on a range of handheld data capture devices, including units such as the Dolphin family of mobile computers from Hand Held Products. Two of the companys latest models are the Dolphin 7900 and the Dolphin 9500. These two devices are both feature-rich and packed with technology, and offer industry-leading levels of performance.
Some of the key features available with mobilecourier include a job dispatch system; text messaging; proof of delivery; bar code and RFID scanning; time tracking; equipment, distance and fuel tracking; navigation; pre-run survey; and Service Level Agreement management.
Adam Dykman, Codegates Managing Director, says: MobileCourier is designed to deliver the goods! It can make a significant difference to the effectiveness and efficiency of logistical operations.
