ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) February 6, 2005
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of Fleet Optimization and Territory Design solutions, announced today that it has teamed up with OSMO Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of wireless data collection and RFID solutions, to deliver closed-loop order fulfillment and tracking solutions that streamline local pickup and delivery operations. The joint effort will give customers greater visibility and control over shipments as they move from the warehouse to a customer location.
ÂGetting the right order to the right place is a fundamental component of good customer service,Â said Michael Nark, President & CEO of GEOCOMtms. ÂBut all too often, dispatchers lack critical information, such as an accurate address, so they spend half the day giving directions to lost drivers. This inefficiency results in increased overtime, excess mileage, and worse Â missed deliveries. The combination of our Fleet Optimization software, A.MAZE, and the advanced solutions offered by OSMO Technologies not only solves this problem by creating optimal delivery routes, but enables drivers to confirm each delivery they make by capturing a customerÂs signature. Customers receive better service and dispatch knows the job has been completed on time.Â
Tracking the flow of goods from the warehouse to the customer is a pressing concern for businesses that are distribution intensive. While many companies have taken advantage of supply chain and warehouse management software to control production and inventory, however, managing dispatch and delivery has traditionally been a highly manual process. Improved fleet management and data collection technologies, as well as RFID, are bringing about change. The optimal solution ensures that loads are properly balanced among available resources, the right items have been placed on the right trucks, and that deliveries are sequenced, scheduled, and routed efficiently. Implementing these solutions allows dispatch operations to run more smoothly and improves customer service.
ÂThe combination of the A.MAZE Fleet Optimization solution and our mobile data collection and RFID systems gives customers a solid foundation for managing order fulfillment,Â said Cyrus Clay,
President of OSMO Technologies, Inc. ÂThe tools we provide help ensure that the right items get loaded, and A.MAZE ensures that pickups and deliveries are made in the most effective way. We then help dispatch close the loop by giving drivers the ability to confirm that each stop has been completed and that stops were made in the correct order and within the appropriate time window. In other words, we help customers take control of the delivery process.Â
