Skillweb provides an effective means of tracking and tracing incoming and outgoing deliveries, as well as communicating useful delivery details to the recipient, via its SmartTask POD solution, helping carriers of all sizes to enhance their service offering.
Downloaded onto a worker’s smartphone, ruggedised or semi-ruggedised device – including the Motorola TC55 touch computer – this mobile software application can run as a standalone solution, alongside Skillweb’s Houndit technology or a carrier’s current system.
When recipients choose their delivery option during a purchase, the information sent to a carrier relating to the order can be used by the software to generate a communication via email or SMS stating an approximate delivery slot. This is based on how long it takes to get from a warehouse to the customer.
