Real-Time 'Arrivals Board' Optimizes Store Delivery Efficiency
Paragon Software Systems, Inc., Dallas, Texas, now offers an “arrivals board” functionality for all of its routing and scheduling systems.
This board link back to satellite vehicle tracking using Paragon Fleet Controller, and provides continually updated visual estimated times of arrival (ETAs) to store staff, informing when the delivery will arrive and precisely what is on the vehicle.
This new functionality also makes it easier to manage multiple deliveries by ensuring enough people are available to handle offloading and for turning the vehicles around on time.
Users access the arrivals board over the web using any Internet-linked display such as large plasma or LCD screens in transportation offices, desktop PCs, laptops and tablets. It only shows the information that in-store delivery teams need such as the vehicle ID, ETA, type of delivery and delivery volume on board.
