CDC Software unveils new supply chain mobile application

To provide companies with real-time visibility and control of the flow of goods

By CBR Staff Writer

CDC Software, a provider of enterprise software applications and services, has released a Proof of Delivery, a new supply chain mobile application that provides companies with real-time visibility and control of the flow of goods, from the warehouse to the customer.

According to CDC, the new application helps to improve fleet productivity, whether in-house or outsourced, by providing complete delivery information. It also helps to shorten the order-to-cash cycle, decreasing the number of disputed invoices and minimises credits/chargebacks.

The company said that the application captures the consignee’s written signature electronically, takes pictures of the condition of the goods (i.e. damaged goods) and transmits them to the central office for review. A built-in GPS receiver also enables the real time tracking of the shipping vehicle and goods for better route management.

Based on CDC Supply Chain’s Ranger platform, the new app works on any handheld device supporting Windows 6.x, supports common network standards and can also work offline due to a built-in cache mechanism. The web services-based interface enables Proof of Delivery to integrate with CDC Supply Chain and other CDC Software offerings, as well as other enterprise and supply chain systems.

Alan MacLamroc, chief product and technology officer of CDC Software, said: “Proof of Delivery is a mobile application targeting companies that want to have better control of their transportation and customer fulfillment process.

“This mobile application helps companies improve their customer service by minimising handling errors and facilitating timely and accurate deliveries. The solution also helps improve fleet productivity, optimise supply chain visibility, minimise administrative paper work, and shorten the order-to-cash cycle, all of which can positively impact a company’s bottom line.”
