The PODFather, the leading system for field force automation and proof of delivery, is working with Intermec to provide the best-of-breed software solutions provided by The PODFather (www.thepodfather.com), and the industry-leading mobile handhelds provided by Intermec that are fast becoming the standard in the postal and logistics industries.
The PODFather is a mobile software solution that tracks job (and delivery) information from the point of order through to delivery, helping businesses streamline their operations and reduce the administration and time-delay problems associated with a paper-based logistics process. Launched by Valley Technology Ltd (Edinburgh, UK) in 2007, it has quickly established as a leading solution for companies operating in construction, courier, and third-party logistics.
Intermec are one of the global leaders in the design and manufacture of automatic information and data capture (AIDC) and mobile computing systems. With a range of industry leading devices, they provide the ideal platform for The PODFather system for companies looking for a rugged and durable handheld for their field staff.
Commenting from The PODFather, Colin McCreadie, Business Development Manager, explains further, “We have been working with Intermec products for many years in the Oil & Gas industry as they are the only manufacturer to offer intrinsically safe (aka. spark-proof) handhelds for use on gas rigs. These high-end devices have always proven themselves to be of an incredibly tough build and very reliable. Whilst clients of The PODFather typically don't require these spark-proof units, the devices aimed at the post and logistics industry share the same build quality and offer excellent value.
“We are delighted to be working with Intermec, and look forward to combining our solutions to ensure The PODFather system continues to grow with the support of a global manufacturer.”
