FARMINGDALE, N.Y. and MARKHAM, Ontario, Aug. 17, 2015 /CNW/ -- Robocom Systems announced today the release of the latest version of Mobile Dispatch, now available to run from Android-based devices such as Smartphones, Tablets, and PC's. Mobile Dispatch provides Automated Driver Location tracking, allowing Dispatchers to track the progress of deliveries and assign pickups to drivers throughout the day. Android functions empower drivers enabling them to open and close orders, scan barcodes, take pictures for OS&D claims, send messages to Dispatch, capture signatures and much more.
"This new application takes full advantage of the latest in cellular, GPS and Android technologies," said Fred Radcliffe, President of Robocom Systems. "Mobile Dispatch is commonly used as a bolt-on module to Robocom's Centerline TMS, designed for LTL and TL trucking companies. However, the first major customer to launch Mobile Dispatch with Android devices is a non-asset-based shipper, using Mobile Dispatch connected to Android devices used by two contract carrier's drivers. The in-house Dispatchers route loads to the carriers' drivers, track the delivery of those loads to the company's operations, then dynamically route drivers to pick up loads from suppliers on their return trip to the Distribution Center. The result is a significant savings in transportation costs."
"Centerline Mobile Dispatch now offers an inexpensive and powerful alternative to the old satellite-based communications and fixed-truck mounted devices. Most drivers carry a smartphone which can now be used with our TMS application," said Bryan Wright, Robocom's Vice President and the driving force behind the Android application. "Our next step will be to configure the Mobile Application to run on iOS devices."
