Paris, Jan 11, 2015.- The number of SmartPhones in the world is now larger than the number of people (7.000 million people), according to a study done by Ericsson. Logistics Operator are more aware of this reality and they need to inform their clients and communicate with them through these mobile devices. Faced with this reality, AndSoft developed two years ago the “SmarTrack” solution. This system enables the drivers, be they own drivers or subcontracted, to check pickups and deliveries, declare incidents, capture signatures or use any formula that can be configured in a global or specific manner for the client. This is applicable to any form of transport.
The Logistics Operator Victransa expressed this necessity to AndSoft, their technological partner for various years now. This is how Victransa describes the main functionalities of the new APP: “All users of the Victransa network (platform staff, drivers and/or associated companies) will be able to manage efficiently any information provided and incidents that can occurre during a transport service. Therefore, for example, through a simple mobile you can take a photo of parcels or pallets by scanning the bar code or Bidi, without having to use a roadmap, gaining in time and efficiency. You can also add any necessary observations via text. These observations are automatically saved in your ERP and sent directly to the Customer Service department in real time, and from there will be transmitted in more detail to their clients if necessary.” The APP is called: “smartPOD” and can be installed for free from a Smartphone as on the Google Play Store.
Since 2012 with AndSoft you can validate deliveries and pickups of merchandise with the driver’s mobiles (iOS and Android) threw the “SmarTrack” solution. This way you can save costs because you do not have to buy other devices and operationally this way of working is more efficient with subcontracted and autonomous drivers.
