The app was to be used on the delivery sites and due to the busy schedule and usage of heavy construction-grade uniforms, it was very important that the Batch Coordinator gets the latest delivery information very quickly and swiftly without going through several clicks within the app. Also due to the same reason, it would be very cumbersome for the Batch Coordinator to key in the delivery details based on the real-time load information for the load brought in by the carrier.
Real-Time Geolocation (Delivery Status)
SRMG’s swift delivery information challenge was presented with a unique solution via geolocation tracking. The implementation would be that when the app user logs into the application and checks the delivery status (by route or material, etc.), the user’s real-time geolocation would be used to only display the delivery status destined for that location. Geolocation radius restrictions were to be set in the application to ensure that the various facilities were clearly identified, and delivery status is not incorrectly displayed for nearby facilities.
Each load was delivered with a BARCODE containing complete information about the load. SRMG’s Batch Coordinator has provisioned the ability to scan the load barcode with the mobile device. Each scan collected the delivery details so that the user does not need to feed them in. The user was allowed to change any specific details if needed. Also, as there were multiple vendors, there were multiple types of Barcodes used by them. The system was made so that it can handle these heterogeneous barcodes.
Barcode Scan – Speech To Text
In case the BARCODE cannot be scanned due to print quality, the user can speak the Ticket Number to record the receipt of the load. The SPEECH TO TEXT feature converts the spoken number into text and matches it with the database to mark the receipt of the load.
