Walls & Ceilings International, the building supplies specialist, has introduced route planning, automated customer notifications and electronic proof of delivery software from PODFather as part of a commitment to improve services, reduce empty running and optimise fuel usage.
Distribution specialist Walls & Ceilings has invested into the latest transport management technology as part of its ongoing project to digitize its transport systems. Having historically relied on manual processes the firm’s team saw the need to update its systems to maximise and grow the business.
After researching solutions that the routing and ePOD market had to offer the Walls & Ceilings made the decision to go with PODFather based on the system’s breadth of functionality, ease of integration and proven track record in its industry sector.
The company will use PODFather to plan and optimise vehicle routes, gather vehicle check information, track deliveries, automatically send out customer ETA notifications, and collect electronic proof of delivery information via the driver smartphone app. With its cloud-based back office system and easy to use driver app PODFather has been able to deliver Walls & Ceilings an easy to use solution that meets the company’s business growth and customer service objectives.
Julian Workman, from Walls & Ceilings said: “The introduction of PODFather will give customers advance notification, and real time visibility, of order progress.”
Walls & Ceilings also expect to save fuel and cut empty running – as the system is rolled out.
