Tuffnells invests in POD management

Tuffnells Parcel Express has selected Spirit Data Capture to supply Soti’s MobiControl device management system.

Electronic proof of delivery is a key to Tufnell’s next day delivery operation, and its previous mobile support and deployment solution was outdated.

The new system can be used to manage both mobile and desktop devices, and provides a security system and helpdesk support.

Technical support manager David Dunhill said: “We liked MobiControl because it was easy to configure and use and it did the job we required. Our devices are used in the warehouse and run an application that our warehouse porters use. The porters scan the freight onto vehicles which enables us to offer a track and trace service to our customers.”

“Spirit have also provided us with the hardware, software and licensing for a large section of our mobile infrastructure. Our mobile devices now run a lot faster and the benefits have also been seen in our support department.”
