  • INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT: PODStar – EPOD & so much more

    At its simplest level PODStar is an Electronic Proof of Delivery System (EPOD). Using an Android smart phone or mobile computer, your van or HGV driver can obtain an electronic signature from your client which confirms receipt of the goods or service delivered. If further evidence is required, the driver can take a confirmatory photograph or scan a barcode which the PODStar system will automatically attach to the client record.

    The proof of delivery information is immediately transmitted in real time to your back-office system. This allows you to produce invoices for completed jobs, maximising cash flow for your business. PODStar can be fully integrated into your existing back-office WMS, ERP and accounting systems or act as a stand-alone independent system with its own invoicing module.

    PODStar is much more than just EPOD. The system has many features associated with modern Transport Management Systems but without the associated additional cost. Core functionality includes Job Planning & Scheduling, Route Planning, Driver & Vehicle Tracking, Vehicle Service Reminders, Vehicle Inspection and Driver Administration (time sheets, expenses, holidays etc.).
