Japanese organic vegetable provider deploys Descartes system

Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) announced that Radishbo-ya, a Japanese producer and distributor of fresh organic vegetables, has deployed Descartes Route Planner and Descartes Mobile for Android.

Radishbo-ya is using the system to improve its delivery capabilities and more efficiently capture customer information. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution was implemented and is being hosted by CTC, a Descartes “United By Design” partner in Japan.

“Our business has been built on producing fresh organic vegetables that are directly and reliably delivered to our customers,” said Daisuke Ogata, chief executive officer of Radishbo-ya. “With Descartes, we’re able to create optimal delivery routes, manage the challenges that occur during the delivery process, and automate data collection at our customer locations.”

As part of Descartes’ Logistics Technology Platform, Descartes’ routing and mobile solutions are designed to help companies, such as Radishbo-ya, create optimal delivery routes, manage the execution of those routes, and capture critical customer information in real-time.

Descartes Route Planner, Dispatch, and Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) are integrated, web-native and multi-lingual systems that provide enterprises with a single view into their delivery operations.

Descartes Mobile for Android helps enterprises manage drivers on delivery routes by providing drivers with the delivery sequence and turn-by-turn driving instructions. The solution also helps enterprises capture route status and other critical information while interacting with the customer.

Radishbo-ya makes weekly deliveries of about 8,000 items to 107,000 households throughout Japan.
