Cadec Global, which provides enterprise-class fleet management systems, announced that its DeliveryTracker mobile proof-of-delivery solution is now available on the PowerVue platform, Cadec’s SaaS solution for fleet management.
Cadec made the announcement at the National Private Truck Council 2013 management conference and exhibition, April 28-30, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
DeliveryTracker, originally launched in 2009 for Cadec’s Mobius platform, is a mobile application for integrated proof of delivery. It consists of software that runs on rugged, mobile handheld units that drivers can take out of the cab in order to scan product and capture signatures at the point of delivery.
Data from the handheld is synced with the Cadec On-board Computer (OBC) in real time and signed invoices can be printed on an optional mobile printer. Details such as over, short and damaged stock; other inventory changes; electronic signatures; and even copies of invoices are sent back from the OBC to the office for integration with billing, inventory and ERP systems, creating a paperless delivery environment.
Cadec says that DeliveryTracker benefits include:
• Increased Productivity: Maximizes driver productivity, allows for more and faster deliveries with fewer mistakes.
• Better inventory control: Barcode scanning ensures that the correct products and quantities are delivered at each delivery site.
• Eliminates paper and improves records keeping: Automatically keeps delivery and accounting records current. No need for paper notes or invoices – everything is recorded on the handheld.
• Streamlines invoices and accelerates cash flow: Proof-of-delivery is conveyed in real time so invoices can be generated on the spot.
Kuna Foodservice was one of the first Cadec customers to implement Delivery Tracker in the PowerVue environment. “Excellent customer service is ingrained in our culture, and is our top priority,” said Bob Matteson, director of transportation at Kuna Foodservice.
“DeliveryTracker has significantly streamlined our delivery operations. The combination of Cadec’s PowerVue, OBC and handhelds with DeliveryTracker is very potent. Drivers are essentially equipped with a mobile office, and Cadec’s real-time data delivery means our managers and in-house systems are instantly alerted to any changes and exceptions. It’s making a big impact on our ability to give customers the best possible service and in increasing productivity.”
“DeliveryTracker is an important element of our promise to extend a company’s supply-chain management efforts all the way to the point of delivery,” said Pete Allen, CEO of Cadec. “Moving DeliveryTracker into our SaaS environment was a major engineering accomplishment and a big milestone in the evolution of PowerVue.”
