OBS Logistics launches CALIDUS ePOD and eServ Android and iOS apps

OBS Logistics launches CALIDUS ePOD and eServ Android and iOS apps

mobile devices the new apps reduce the cost of deploying ePOD and eServ in typical applications by 30% or more.
CALIDUS ePOD / eServ benefits include real-time job assignments and debriefing, which makes it possible to bill sooner – sometimes on the same day of the delivery – and it eliminates delivery disputes as it provides a full electronic audit trail. Operationally, managers also benefit from their drivers and service engineers adhering to routes and schedules as the system provides full visibility of their mobile workers. In addition, both systems integrate fully and easily with other CALIDUS modules (for example, warehouse management, transport management, supply chain tracking and web ordering) and with other suppliers’ back office software.
Android and iOS are denting the market where various mobile versions of Microsoft Windows have dominated for many years. This is particularly true of the BRIC nations (Brazil, India, Russia and China), which are in the top 10 growth countries for smart devices. Both operating systems are seen as being more user-friendly and there is a wide range of lower-cost hand-held devices to choose from to suit any need. In addition, there is further opportunity to integrate and enhance the functionality of the devices with apps that complement ePOD and eServ.
“Mobile technology convergence is making it much easier and more cost-effective to deploy powerful logistics solutions on Android and iOS platforms. We have seen a substantial increase in demand across our target markets in EMEA and Asia Pacific over the past 12 months” says Stephen McCartney, Sales Director, OBS Logistics.
“The ePOD and eServ apps are free downloads and we are implementing a flexible priced usage scheme to suit any size of company, which makes them an attractive proposition for automating delivery and service operations. Our ePOD and eServ apps are just the beginning and the market should expect to see our other CALIDUS modules available on Android and iOS,” he adds.
