We chose Sci-Log because it’s the state-of-the-art cloud-based delivery planning system for the wine and spirits industry.

Scientific Logistics, the first highly automated cloud-based delivery route planning solution, announced today a reseller agreement with Inventiv, the leading software provider for wine and spirits distributors in the U.S. Distributors of wine and spirits -- as well as distributors of soft drinks, major brand beer, and craft beer -- continue to switch to Scientific Logistics’ cloud–based route optimization solution.

Used by thousands of sales representatives in the wine and spirits industry, Inventiv’s PocketAdvantage™ sets the standard for reliable, cost-effective order entry using an iPad, iPhone, or PC. Now, in response to distributor requests to better coordinate beverage delivery with sales and merchandising, Inventiv has developed PocketDelivery™. This new app provides drivers with turn by turn directions, inventory check-ins sign-offs and delivery notes and the ability to print a clean invoice all synchronized with PocketAdvantage.

Numerous clients have asked Inventiv to integrate a route planning and optimization solution with the new PocketDelivery delivery management application. "We chose Sci-Log because it’s the state-of-the-art cloud-based delivery planning system for the wine and spirits industry," said Jim Harris, Inventiv VP of Sales. "Sci-Log has proven it can significantly shrink delivery planning effort, increase on-time customer service, and reduce delivery costs in wine and spirits distribution.”

By combining Inventiv’s PocketDelivery capabilities for delivery management and Sci-Log’s contemporary cloud-based route optimization solution wine and spirits distributors will be able to:

  •     Optimize delivery routes based on miles, time and service windows
  •     Manage time for delivery drivers more effectively, minimizing costly overtime
  •     Lower overall delivery costs

“Many of our clients deploying PocketDelivery are excited about the potential to leverage powerful cloud-based delivery planning fully integrated into the Inventiv platform," concluded Harris.
