Overview

Ignition POD provides multiple advantages to enhance profitability and improve your relationship with your customers. As a mobile application used in the field to track a product’s activity from warehouse to customer delivery, POD supports just-in-time electronic delivery confirmation including signature captures, photos, and GPS coordinates. It also tracks truck inventory on a real-time basis as well as providing a level of customer account information that enables your personnel to make fast and precise deliveries.

Companies that deliver on paper are missing the key advantages of real-time communication and automation. With today’s strict standards for track and trace, extending the automated processes beyond the warehouse to the time of delivery is the next logical step. Knowing the right case was delivered to the right stop at the right time is imperative to protect your customers and your brand as well as to maintain compliance.

Customer Testimonial: Richard Scavuzzo

View Resource

"On our first [ePoD] delivery, on our first truck, a customer called and said, "We didn't get our case of shrimp." We went into the ePoD data, and it showed that we delivered it, with the GPS location where our driver scanned it, right inside their cooler. We were able to go to that customer and tell them to look for it...they found the case. Before, [if they reported a 'missing'] $200 case of shrimp, we would have just written a credit for it. That's a $200 savings on the first delivery, first day."
