Business Micros has begun the roll out of its Next Generation software solutions with the launch of Courier – a mobile delivery scanning app for fabricators.
Courier has been created to work alongside Business Micros’ EvoNET Despatch planning tool and is said to provide the final link in the chain, scanning and recording each item as it is delivered to guarantee ‘On Time In Full’ performance every single time.
According to Business Micros, Courier is simple and affordable, and gives delivery drivers the tools they need to do a great job. EvoNET Despatch ensures that all items are loaded onto the vehicle correctly, and then the driver uses the integrated Courier app on their Android scanning device to scan those same items as they are unloaded, ensuring that nothing can ever be missed off.
As well as eliminating paper delivery notes, the app captures the customer’s signature and automatically sends an email conformation to record each completed drop.
To start using Courier, fabricators need to create an online account with Business Micros to download the app. Once they have entered their security information and the registration numbers of their delivery vehicles, they can start setting up their delivery routes by vehicle through EvoNET and exporting them to the Courier Cloud server.
The driver using the app simply clicks on each drop once they arrive at that customer and then scans off each item using their device as they unload it from the vehicle. Once every item has been scanned, the customer can sign for that delivery and at that point the information is captured and saved offline. Once the device is within range of 4G or WiFi, then the information is passed back to EvoNET.
Nick Bailey, business development manager at Business Micros, says that Courier delivers all the simplicity and ease of use which it promised when it announced its Next Generation software at last year’s FIT Show. He said: “This is so easy to integrate into any delivery set up and eliminates all those missed items and delivery errors which end up costing money. It empowers drivers and helps them to impress customers with an efficient and reliable service.”
