Driver app

Our driver app is intuitive, easy to use and functionality rich.  It will run on most Android or iOS devices for ease of roll out across your driver teams.  Download for free from either the Google Play or Apple App Store.  

Once set up the app will allow your drivers to collect all vehicle check information (inc. photos), you can upload job information, track vehicle movements and capture electronic proof of delivery in real time.  If you run third party vehicles and drivers they just need to download the app onto their own smartphone and away they go.

The benefits of using our driver app

Our driver app replaces the need to use paper tickets.  Think of it as digital job ticketing, with vehicle checks thrown in.

Feature highlights

Route & delivery instructions

  • You can configure the driver app to force a vehicle check, or not, before job information is accessible.  
  • Jobs are displayed in delivery order and any specific instructions are clearly visible.  Drivers have all the required information at their fingertips. 

Inbuilt navigation

  • Driver navigation is included as standard for those that need guiding between drops.  Running electric vehicles, that’s no problem we’ll include the range.  
  • Running HGVs that’s no problem either.  We’ll get your drivers to the right place in the most efficient route.  

Collect proof of delivery

  • A big driver app benefit is that you can use it to capture electronic proof of delivery.  
  • That includes electronic signatures, barcode scanning, photographs and details of any item discrepancies (e.g. Rejected items).  Capture the exact date, time and GPS location for all deliveries. 

Further features

Vehicle checks

Our driver app enables your drivers to capture proof of delivery, but it also allows you to digitize your vehicle checks in the one solution.  Make sure all necessary vehicle checks have been completed before vehicles leave the depot and give your drivers access to real time vehicle check completion confirmations should they happen to be given a spot check by the DVSA.

Customer story


JW Filshill

Filshill needed a solution to help manage its vehicle fleet delivering a mix of fresh, frozen and ambient products to customers across Scotland and the North of England.  Service reliability and customer satisfaction were key metrics.  

Filshill uses Podfather every day to plan and manage deliveries. At the beginning of a shift, a driver will receive all job information via the PODFather smartphone app. The driver then uses the smartphone app to gather all necessary vehicle check information, which is automatically uploaded back into the transport office, before the vehicle leaves the depot. Once out on the road, Podfather enables Filshill to track vehicle movements, direct drivers from job to job and capture proof of delivery once a job has been completed.
