Roambee ePOD

ePOD (Electronic Proof of Delivery) is not a new concept and has been available in the form of stand-alone apps or as an extension to GPS vehicle tracking systems. Then, why are so many of companies switching to an automated ePOD solution that Roambee has developed, and how is it different from a manual ePOD solution? See the comparison!

Automated ePOD is a solution that leverages real-time shipment visibility and a control tower to ensure timely, accurate digital signatures.

Automated ePOD versus Manual ePOD

 

Parameter

 

Manual Standalone ePOD

 

Automated ePOD
(ePOD + Real-time Monitoring +
24x7 Control Tower Action)

Actionability

 

Electronic receipts only. Issues occuring on-site are non-actionable.

 

Damaged goods or wrong deliveries are actionable within minutes. The control tower can act as the first line of defense during these anomalies.

Zero setup for every shipment

 

Shipment parameters are to be captured ahead of each shipment manually.

 

Shipment parameters are pre-linked to ePOD which in turn is connected with enterprise software such as SAP, Oracle or a TMS.

High certainty of field personnel using the ePOD feature

 

No reminders, chance of late or missing confirmations.

 

Automated reminders through app, SMS notifications, and control tower upon shipment completion.

Customizability, scalability across tens of thousands of SKUs

 

Data exports and sorting can take days.

 

Form fields are fully customizable, and ePOD documents can be pushed into enterprise software or finance portals using APIs.
