POMeRoute-Android allows your drivers to create and print invoices on-site and save them on the handheld device. Data created or changed is downloaded and uploaded via the web, negating the need for cords. The major benefit of this solution is that drivers do not need to return to base to get new information or to send that information back.
This module is written specifically for devices that run Android OS. We recommend 8″ or 10″ devices as larger units cannot be easily tucked into pockets or held in one hand, though any phone or tablet running Android will work. Please be aware that many of these devices should be housed in a rugged case for protection.
Your drivers can create invoices that reflect the day’s deliveries and returns, as well as view previous delivery tickets to estimate future needs for your customers. Invoices are instantly e-mailed to customers allowing them to print paper copies whenever they need. If the device can read barcodes, your drivers can also scan data from UPCs to save time rather than entering them manually.
After invoice generation, your customers can sign directly on the device screen with our signature capture. The signatures are saved to the web servers and downloaded to the back-end software to be reprinted at a later time.
On-site Wireless Printing
If required by customers, drivers can print invoices on belt-carried printers. We recommend the Zebra RW420 or a similar printer. Please note that not all belt-carried printers are compatible. If a full-sized (8.5”x11”) invoice is desired, a Bluetooth-enabled, truck-mounted printer can also be used.
At the beginning of each driver shift, data is downloaded from the server to the device. At the close of that shift the day’s data is uploaded back to the server: all wirelessly! This leaves your drivers free to deliver goods to your customers with ease. Of course copies of invoices created by drivers are uploaded to the server and can be emailed later.
Cost to You
We charge a per-device fee with an initial setup and training fee. There are no limits to the number of customers served on each route or how long our program can be used without needing an upgrade. For best results, we recommend POMeSYS as your back-end software, although you may choose another solution. However, such software must have communication protocols between it and POMeRoute-Android. For current pricing, please contact us.
We provide a back-end software called POMeSYS. Although designed to be used by bakers to manage their businesses, it can be used in other food distribution industries. POMeRoute-Android is compatible with the main modules of POMeSYS. The included modules in POMeSYS create and change information about customers, products, and routes. Orders from customers and drivers are entered and then downloaded to your hand held devices.
