Efficient and reliable

Business Micros has launched Courier, a mobile delivery scanning app for fabricators, which marks the roll-out of the company’s “next generation software solutions”.

Courier has been created to work alongside the company’s EvoNET Despatch planning tool, scanning and recording each item in a bid to guarantee otif performance.

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. 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 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 the delivery and, at that point, the information is captured and saved offline. Once the device is within range of 4G or WiFi, the information is passed back to EvoNET.

Nick Bailey, business development manager at Business Micros, said: “This is so easy to integrate into any delivery set up and eliminates all those missed items and delivery errors that end up costing money. It empowers drivers and helps them to impress customers with an efficient and reliable service.”
