We’re really pleased to announce the next release of our Springboard Delivery app, available early in September.
Springboard Delivery is a cloud-based application, available for Android phones, that was developed to give companies an easy, paperless proof of delivery method. It has been very successful and already has more than 100 users, who have captured more than 100,000 signatures. One of our customers has 14 drivers capturing around 300 signatures a day.
With the latest release, we’re adding a number of exciting new routing and tracking features.
The new routing functionality is very simple to use and quickly assembles routes. It’s particularly good for distributors that deliver to the same customers over and over, or who only need simple routing software.
It is straightforward and quick to use, without the need to maintain large amounts of delivery data, delivering optimised routes appropriate for regular delivery locations. With improved route plans, vehicle mileage and driver hours can be reduced, thus saving money.
For tracking, the application provides all the tools needed for monitoring a driver’s progress and behaviour whilst on the road.
Springboard Delivery is a simple piece of software that is extremely competitively-priced compared to the complex route planning software that’s available. Here’s a run-down of the key features:
Proof of delivery:
- Electronic proof of delivery – real-time, geotagged and time-stamped delivery proof, with name, time, signature, location and photos.
- Barcode compatible – scan and record barcodes against deliveries.
- Customisable – display a logo on your own app to brand your own version.
- Instant email notifications – following delivery, automatic proof of delivery emails are instantly sent to customer and sender.
