SAP Mobile Partner App Challenge, this year, has an industry flavor and requires partners to develop mobile apps that address specific problems faced by Retailers, Wholesale Distributors or Transport and Logistics Providers. The SAP App Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for SAP Mobile Partners to showcase their mobility competency and bring forth mobile solutions that solve diverse business problems.
KloudData won the App Challege in 2012 with mMR (or mobile MedRecords) app and the team was looking forward to participate again this year. The mPoID or mobile Proof of Issue & Delivery was conceptualized with a focus on the Transport & Logistics industry. Especially for providers that deal with complex and bulk deliveries of liquids, chemicals or other materials requiring quality or calibration data to be captured at the point of delivery. Our solution integrates with the SAP Sales & Distribution (S&D) module, and empowers the Transport & Logistics work area of an enterprise. This KloudData app features extraordinary UI designs and gives highly useful enterprise data access to transporters and drivers. The app is especially useful for delivery personnel who are transporting any kinds of volatile materials that are Temperature & Pressure sensitive, and are likely to experience transit losses, or perishable or likely to face pilferage, as the app allows them to get the Proof of Delivery on their hand held devices with a single click.
Delivery and Transport companies operating in various industry domains usually incur losses due to failed deliveries or materials lost during the transportation of sensitive equipment. Improper documentation results in ambiguity that makes it difficult to determine the actual losses in the materials as well as in time. This is especially true during the transportation of materials like oil and gas where variations in the quantity of the goods also depends upon external factors such as Temperature, Pressure etc. Additionally, loading exact quantities as per delivery document is a challenge in many cases such as bulk materials – liquid or solid.
Managing a mobile work force in the field, as well as complying with industry standards is a big enough challenge, that becomes more difficult by unforeseen circumstances encountered by large fleets transporting bulks of volatile materials such as oil. These challenges can however be dealt with, by putting an effective and robust Proof of Issue & Delivery (PoID) system in place.
Although mobile technology has come in quite handy in the past decade for better communications during transit, the current advent of smart phones and other devices is changing this scenario radically. The smart phones and tablets are now able to connect the field force with enterprise systems through the internet. The work force (technicians or executives) therefore, can now directly interact with the enterprise systems through a dedicated app interface.
mobile Proof of Issue & Delivery or mPoID is KloudData’s mobile app, purpose-built for organizations that need proof of deliveries in transportation, distribution, shipping and logistics. This app is thus very useful for tasks that require capturing of special calibration data like order-specific quantities, size and weight, or density, temperature and volume of picked-up items against actually delivered items. With this simple to use app, you can equip your transporters with an easy option to record all required delivery information on their hand held devices, and also capture customer signatures as final proofs of deliveries.
mPoID allows enterprises to do away with paper-based processes and significantly reduces their delivery errors. The mPoID app brings greater transparency and controls into your delivery and logistics operations. mPoID is intuitive and easy to use, and seamlessly integrates with SAP ERP’s S&D module, ensuring rapid ROI for an enterprise.
The Key Features of the mPoID App are:
- Accurate & faster deliveries with requisite proofs.
- Electronic proof of deliveries, integrated with backend ERP.
- Source-to-destination route maps on hand held devices.
- Onsite, on-device signature captures for immediate delivery confirmations.
