Cheetah Software Systems Inc., a cloud-based transportation logistics solutions provider, has announced the availability of the next generation of Cheetah Mobile, currently for the Android platform, which offers a data-rich and intuitive interface that provides enhanced access to information and improves field efficiency and productivity. The Android platform supports a wide variety of smartphones and tablets on all major US carriers – Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile – including ruggedized models and those with and without physical keyboards, thus meeting the needs of any organization at a variety of competitive price points.

Cheetah Mobile is designed to connect field workers with dispatch, customer service, management and customers in real time via two-way messaging, dynamic ETA updates and POD verification, including barcode scanning, signature capture and photos. Field efficiency is further improved with voice navigation, providing turn-by-turn directions driven by live pickup-and-delivery information. According to the company, training is reduced and productivity is increased through an intuitive touchscreen interface that is standardized across all Android devices and built-in help that reduces support calls.

“Cheetah Mobile puts the power of the Cheetah logistics system in the hands of field workers, with an easy-to-use and intuitive interface and better access to information,” says Bobby Darroll, Cheetah president and chief executive officer. “In addition, drivers and other field workers can more easily update order status, remain in touch with the backoffice and easily access the tools need to be efficient and productive. In addition, we’re excited to leverage the flexible and increasingly popular Android platform to provide enhanced value to Cheetah customers.”
