T@lecom Launch Satellite Navigation Facility For Its Wireless Delivered™ Product
T@lecom, developers of cost effective wireless solutions to the transport and logistics industry has launched an optional satellite navigation facility for its Wireless Delivered™ product range. The facility is available on both variants of Wireless Delivered™ – ‘Express’ for same day and ‘Manifest’ for overnight deliveries.
Wireless Delivered™ is undoubtedly the most advanced mobile data solution currently available to the transport industry. This affordable real-time job control and signature capture system, enables the instant, cost effective transfer of data and delivery information between any back office system and field employee via a PDA device.
The optional satellite navigation facility utilises information from the Wireless Delivered™ product, enabling the courier to simply press one button to accept a job and is taken straight into the satellite navigation facility to the desired location.
Based on the vehicle’s current position the navigation system calculates the driver’s best possible route utilising the postcode interpretation already logged in the system and provides clear directions on the handheld PDA unit (secured in the hands free attachment on the dashboard) and verbal instructions.
The system is unique in the marketplace in terms of functionality in that it removes the need for driver’s to manually type in the address or postcode. Utilising the courier company’s back office information the seamless facility reduces duplication of data and human errors from the process ultimately resulting in both time and money savings.
Jan O’Hara, CEO for T@lecom commented: “The Wireless Delivered™ satellite navigation facility is more accurate than a standard navigation tool as it uses information from the courier’s own back office system.
“It increases efficiency between both the back office and its couriers resulting in time-savings on delivery routes which is essential in this tight and low margin marketplace. A number of our existing customers are already trialling this new facility and we are receiving excellent feedback from them. We already have a number of orders in the pipeline and are confident that this optional extra will prove to be a value added tool to our customers.”
