Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Having instant access to daily and weekly delivery schedules is a necessity for many dock supervisors and their staff at distribution centers, warehouses, manufacturing plants and other facilities worldwide that both receive and ship deliveries. Unfortunately, this is not always a reality, as schedules often reside solely on a clipboard in the docking area or on a single desktop computer in the dispatcher room. But thanks to new mobile apps from Appointment-Plus scheduling software, these facilities can instantly access their delivery schedules when they need them, 24 hours a day.
Appointment-Plus delivery scheduling software has been the premier solution for facilities looking to automate and streamline the manner in which they schedule and manage their inbound and outbound deliveries and shipments. From large enterprise-sized organizations with dozens of locations and hundreds of docks to medium-sized and smaller operations, Appointment-Plus transforms the delivery process by giving carriers the ability to schedule their own delivery times online, instead of over the phone, by fax or by e-mail. The result is a more efficient and organized process that saves facilities both time and money.
Now, this powerful technology is accessible through new dynamic mobile scheduling apps for Apple and Android devices, enabling dock supervisors and staff to access their delivery schedules and carrier information anytime and from anywhere, right from their smart phones and tablets.
Available free to all Appointment-Plus clients, these powerful new apps provide such features as:
- A clean and easy-to-navigate user interface.
- An icon on your mobile device for easy and instant access to your scheduler.
- Functionality to instantly add, change and cancel appointments.
- Functionality to add and update customer information.
- Filter appointment data by staff or location.
- Daily, monthly and list views.
- Multiple Appointments Per Time Slot (MAPTS) compatible.
Both mobile scheduling apps are “native”, which are faster and more functional than the more common mobile web apps. The apps are available free to current Appointment-Plus and are available for download in The App Store (Apple devices) and the Google Play Store (Android devices).
