Atlanta, State (PRWEB) November 9, 2006
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of fleet management software for local pickup and delivery operations, announced today the availability of A.MAZE Mobile™ Petroleum Edition. The handheld computing application aids drivers, reduces errors, and improves customer service by automating processes that typically involve extensive paperwork. With A.MAZE Mobile Petroleum Edition, the company's standard mobile functionally has been enhanced to support the specific requirements of petroleum distributors.
"We developed A.MAZE Mobile Petroleum Edition by working closely with our customer base and with prospects," said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. "This enabled us to deliver a mobile solution that addresses industry challenges in a way that generic applications cannot. Because there is no need for customization, the Petroleum Edition can be put into day-to-day operation more quickly. As a result, the customer achieves payback sooner."
Petroleum distribution has a number of unique characteristics, including:
- Delivery of multiple products and product grades to a single customer
- Changing delivery plans en-route due to on-demand orders
- Loading products at multiple refill points and recording depot/supplier liftings
- Adding products and adjusting quantities at the point of delivery
- Reconciling actual delivery quantities with a bill of lading
A.MAZE Mobile Petroleum Edition automates many of the driver activities that support these processes. The solution makes it possible for drivers to record delivered quantities electronically, add or change orders in the field, update bills of lading, and capture customer signatures for proof of delivery. It also provides drivers with detailed account information, accurate pricing at the time of delivery, complete routing plans, and the ability to communicate with dispatch via email or text message. Other functionality includes automatic invoicing, electronic driver logs, and maps with turn-by-turn directions. The Petroleum Edition also integrates seamlessly with back office Accounting and Order Management applications.
Key benefits of A.MAZE Mobile Petroleum Edition include:
- Ensuring accurate pricing and invoicing
- Eliminating paperwork and data entry errors
- Providing customers with proof of delivery
- Getting accurate & timely inventory data
- Providing drivers with good directions
