Attendees of the annual SAPICS conference, which took place at Sun City from 12 – 14 June 2016, benefitted from the debut launch of Strato IT Group’s innovative digital proof of delivery business application, StratoPOD. This cost effective mobile business application is designed specifically to improve delivery processes for logistics enterprises and their customers.

Cassie Lessing, MD, Strato IT Group says the company was extremely excited about showcasing its mobile business application and how it provides a ROI from the very first delivery: “StratoPOD is designed on an innovative, digital platform and provides a single, connected system that simplifies and digitises delivery. It is a unique locally developed application and we are confident that it will assist many logistics businesses to simplify their delivery processes, while also reducing risk and saving costs.”

This cloud-based mobile business application facilitates digitisation of delivery documentation including digitally signed proof of delivery and is easily integrated to back-office systems. STRATOpod has already been purchased by one of South Africa’s leading automotive brands and the ROI has been immediate. It is compatible with most recognized mobile devices and operating systems and can be operated in real-time or in off-line mode.

Lessing says the system is extremely easy to use and the drivers that utilise it experience numerous benefits of a paperless, streamlined process: “Drivers can scan product off the delivery vehicle to eliminate delivery failures, capture the consignee signature at point of delivery, and quickly identify over, short or damaged goods (with photographic evidence) to immediately initiate a claims process.”

SAPICS standStratoPOD is aimed at logistics businesses and their customers that use paper-based delivery systems. It can be easily customised to accommodate customer specific requirements and currently have configured solutions for transportation of packages, palletised materials and bulk materials (fuel, sand, coal and stone). “We are extremely excited about the prospects of this mobile business application and have already received very positive feedback and enquiries within various industries.”

StratoPOD was awarded the best single stand exhibition at SAPICS 2016, an accolade the company is extremely proud of as a first-time exhibitor.
