The proof of delivery solution is a combination of mobile application and web application that helps businesses schedule and track deliveries and automate proof of delivery documentation. Dispatchers schedule deliveries from a web portal. Drivers download their schedules to an app that is installed on their Android device. As drivers make each delivery, they can scan barcodes, capture signatures, take phots, embed timestamps and GPS coordinates specifying the exact time and location of the delivery. The driver then uploads the delivery information. Office personnel can track delivery completions in real-time from the web-portal. Proof of delivery documentation is automated saving hours of time while eliminating errors and omissions.
A core component of the solution is using barcodes for accurate and fast information lookup. A modern smartphone's ability to scan barcodes, acquire GPS, touch screen data entry with dropdown menus eliminates thousands of dollars of costs of special purpose barcode scanning and data collection devices that are associated with traditional delivery tracking solutions.
Flexible search for past deliveries, days, weeks or months after delivery even when only partial information is available. Rapidly respond to customer inquiries and provide documentation when disputes arise. Cut losses due to inability to prove deliveries. Rapidly recall pass deliveries. Historical search with partial information (customer, project / delivery ID). Provide reports to your customers with photos, timestamps, GPS coordinates of drop location & signatures.
Dispatchers managing drivers across different locations can schedule deliveries and assign drivers online. Where routes and stops are repeated weekly, the application lets you create templates that can be imported to save time.
Schedule 3rd party drivers using just the drivers name and phone number. Drivers do not need to work for your company. They will just need an Android device and install the free app.

There are two primary types of barcodes to consider, 1D and QR Codes. 1D or one dimensional codes, shown below, are the traditional barcodes that have been used on retail products for decades.
QR, Quick Response, Codes are a 2D (two dimensional) code, shown below, that is commonly associated with a means for scanning URLs from a smartphone or as a means to display product information or special event details in advertising campaigns.
QR Codes will always perform much better for smartphone and tablet barcode scanners. Smartphones that have cameras with auto-focus and flash will still perform well. Many tablets do not have these two features and QR codes will be the only viable option if your organization will use devices without autofocus and flash.
For either 1D traditional barcodes or QR Codes, you need to use sequentially numbered labels. You can purchase 1000 labels for as little as $60. Following are two examples but you can order sequential QR codes or sequential barcodes from any number of places.
