Transport management firm Microlise has released the SmartPOD, a proof of delivery app which can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
It is the company’s first POD app for Android smartphone devices and aims to provide an affordable pay-as-you-go POD solution to 4PLs and sub-contractors.
The new software offers all of the key features of a traditional ePOD solution such as tractor/trailer confirmation, journey manifest download, site arrival and departure time-stamping, journey mileage capture and proof of collection/delivery at site.
The SmartPOD application can also connect to sat-navs and phone dialling.
Matt Hague, product strategy director, said: “It allows Microlise customers and their sub-contractors to realise the benefits of ePOD, without high costs of entry. Offering a service purely on a pay-as-you-go transactional basis is a big step for us but based on feedback so far, we are confident that demand will be high”.
