  • Contactless and/or physical signature capture
  • Scan-on/scan-off capabilities for vehcile manifests and deliveries
  • Confirmation of product counts
  • Picture Proof of Delivery - Images of damages or pictures of the locations where goods were left
  • Paperless Invoicing and Delviery Confirmations

ePOD Features & Benefits

Paperless Proof of Delivery

Electronic proof of delivery automates the process of customers acknowledging receipt while digitisation eliminates the associated costs such as paper, ink, and printers.

Contactless Proof of Delivery

If a signature is not to be collected as proof of receipt, our system can be configured to accept alternative methods for proof of delivery such as capturing an image.

Capture Images

Captured images are associated with the delivery and can be used to prove receipt, location left or any damages, speeding up back-office processes.

Scan Barcodes

The Scanning of barcodes on goods whilst loading, on delivery and on return to base, improves accuracy of deliveries and reduces paperwork for returned goods.

Broad range of mobile platforms and devices

Most smartphones and handheld devices are suitable, removing the need for dedicated devices and enabling pre-existing devices to be utilised and costs saved.
