In the last few months, nearly every phase of the supply chain as we knew it has been impacted. New challenges have emerged as factors like social distancing, sanitization, and public health become increasingly more important.
Contactless-enabling solutions empower organizations to boost supply chain efficiencies and ensure employee safety. Implementing touch-free solutions throughout supply chains allows organizations to decrease entry errors while increasing visibility into over-shipped, short-shipped, or damaged inventory conditions, while also benefitting from a green footprint with the reduction of manual paper processes.
Removing Paper Processes in the Field with Proof of Delivery
Eliminate paper from delivery processes with the adoption of mobile devices and “sign on glass” Proof of Delivery applications. Instead of signing a piece of paper, a customer can sign on the glass screen of a mobile device to confirm delivery, removing both paper waste and inefficiencies.
Proof of Delivery is an electronic delivery verification that provides workers with a safe option to increase sales and delivery performance. It does this by reducing paper-based processes. providing real-time visibility into inventory availability, and executing accurate deliveries with mobile access to customer, order, and location information. Proof of Delivery includes:
Contactless Driver Check-In
By digitizing this traditionally paper-based bills of lading process, organizations can provide touch-free safety benefits, as well as improve supply efficiency, inventory visibility, and data accuracy. Benefits of this include:
Checking in Inventory with Real-Time Supply Chain Visibility
Contactless processes free up a business’ most important asset—its people—from having to worry about manually comparing inventory against contract terms and potentially missing critical contractual milestones.
Upon receipt of inventory, warehouse workers scan the PO receipt, then notate whether the shipment is late, missing SKUs, contains damaged items, or other attributes to provide valuable back-office information. Automatic process notifications are then sent to back-office workers (home or not onsite) to create follow-up tasks, all while the warehouse worker continues their tasks.
Warehouse users will actively reduce risk by preventing contractual compliance problems. Traditionally, supply chain and inventory compliance problems are detected downstream, often too late in the process to avoid costly penalties or hold vendors accountable. This actionable intelligence optimizes inventory and increases utilization, keeping the mobile workforce generating revenue and focusing on adding value and leading to benefits like:
