eOriginal has been wonderful to work with, and through integration offers a complete, cost-effective, cutting-edge solution for customers wanting digital, web-based signature capture.
Eau Claire, WI and Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 11, 2010
The founders of Elite EXTRA, a revolutionary new routing and tracking tool, and eOriginal Inc., a leader in electronic signatures, vaulted repository and electronic transaction solutions, have partnered to offer point of delivery electronic signature capture for the automotive parts industry.
Jim Ward, President of Extra Trax, the company that owns Elite EXTRA (Extreme Routing and Tracking Application), recognizes the electronic signature solution is a critical add-on that will benefit Elite EXTRA's customers by providing a secured electronically signed document as proof of delivery or service, creating the option for a paperless system for customers who choose it.
"This is the first routing and tracking system that combines automated optimal routes at an affordable price point with real-time electronic signature capture," said Ward. "Together these tools will revolutionize the way auto parts are delivered by creating efficiencies and reducing waste for customers."
Jim Tebay, eOriginal's Vice-President of Business Development, said "We've played a key role in automating automotive finance with our solutions, so we see Elite EXTRA's real-time solution for parts delivery as a natural complement and one that provides a fast return on investment for both dealers and parts suppliers."
Electronic signature capture, embedded into a web browser on the driver's cell phone, will be provided at the point of delivery, to capture the signature from the person receiving the order. The signature will then be stored for the customer with the pertinent details of the delivery, invoice or work order, and accessible in real-time via Extra's customer web portal.
Because both the Extra Trax and eOriginal processes are aimed at automating and streamlining operations for deliveries, the two complement one another in helping businesses to operate efficiently, reduce staff and cut overhead operating costs.
Elite EXTRA has a proven return on investment (ROI) of 15 percent through route optimization and driver and dispatcher efficiencies, and signature capture will further augment that ROI by reducing the amount of time staff spend in searching and accessing paper documents.
"We did an extensive search for an electronic signature solution to help streamline our customers' operations in a manner that is easy, efficient, and secure," said Ward. "eOriginal has been wonderful to work with, and through integration offers a complete, cost-effective, cutting-edge solution for customers wanting digital, web-based signature capture."
Elite EXTRA, which was launched in 2009, is a web-based system that creates automated optimal routes, tracks drivers, and provides an estimated time of arrival (ETA) for customers. It uses the latest in open source geospatial technologies to streamline the automotive parts delivery system. Advanced geospatial algorithms calculate delivery routes and route orders, helping dispatchers to determine the optimal routes for their drivers. It is a powerful, yet lightweight and cost-effective solution for all industries that transport goods or services.
The first release of the system was developed exclusively for the auto part delivery industry with extensive input from pioneers in the logistics and auto parts industries. It costs less upfront, and is less per driver than comparable software as a service (SaaS) packages.
