Descartes Mobile is a family of wireless applications that connect field-based information directly into Descartes' software solutions.
These mobile applications operate across a broad range of mobile platforms and an extreme variety of devices, both ruggedised and consumer grade, to support your unique needs, budget and technology strategy.
Mobile devices allow paper-based systems to be replaced, increase accuracy of deliveries and reduce missed deliveries.
Having a fully optimised route and plan for deliveries is one thing but managing it in real-time with unexpected traffic delays, damaged or missing goods and failed deliveries is another. Descartes Mobile™ Applications provide real time data communications to manage exceptions and eliminate traditional paper based processes to improve efficiency and enhance the customer experience.
Descartes Mobile™ solutions integrate with the route plans, collect comprehensive information such as proof of delivery and enable dispatchers to provide drivers with real-time updates. Data can also be used to keep customers updated on the progress of the delivery to minimise missed deliveries due to the recipient not being available to receive it.
Descartes Mobile Driver Vehicle Safety Check (DVSC) or SmartCheck™ is a cloud-based solution for walk around driver vehicle safety checks. Replacing traditional paper-based systems enables data to be captured and stored in real time.
A completely auditable record of checks is maintained along with any corrective actions taken.
Commercial drivers perform the safety checks recording the results through the Descartes software, either on provided smart devices as used for Proof of delivery or on their own Android smart phones running the App. This enables transport managers to see the status & history of vehicles while fleet mechanics can plan repairs and log fixes.
Mobile devices can be chosen based on unique needs, budget, networks, operating systems and technology strategy.
Improved driver performance and safety while reducing fuel consumption.
Eliminate paper and streamline operations to reduce costs, improving accuracy and efficiency.
Track actual against plan with exception alerts automatically triggered, enabling more acurate prediction of delivery windows.
Minimise billing cycles, fulfill new orders and update inventory data on the fly.
Obtain vehicle checks in realt-time over the internet to comply with DVSA requirements.
