Sygic, the GPS navigation provider, has released a new feature of its B2B product Sygic Job Dispatch.
Users of the Job Dispatch application suite will now be able to access Bar Code Scanner, a new integrated feature that enhances tracking capabilities and streamlines warehouse and inventory management. Bar Code Scanner allows workers to access bar-code scanning for packages as they arrive at a company’s facility, thereby guaranteeing complete control and organization of stock and supply. Company dispatchers can add bar codes into their job system and see exactly which packages have been delivered and which are on the way.
Alongside integration with Sygic’s mapping software, other features of Job Dispatch include:
•API integration—Dispatch jobs directly from company job systems or third-party systems through API integration. Companies can create and dispatch tasks, get task statuses or locate drivers without using the Job Dispatch WEB interface.
•Messaging—Messages can be sent directly to drivers’ phones with text and attachments included in the job order. Drivers’ replies will include exact locations and the option to incorporate image and document attachments.
•Job templates—Companies with frequent customers can easily create templates for repetitive tasks and faster data management. All recurring data is saved into customized templates that can be dispatched anytime with a single click.
•Location tracking—Locate employees with accurate real-time positions anytime, anywhere. Job Dispatch uses GPS signal as well as mobile networks for better reach, and the location of a mobile workforce is visible even inside buildings or driving through tunnels.
•Signature—Job Dispatch supports signature capture for electronic authentication. Once a signature has been captured, the signature and its location data are automatically sent to the dispatcher.
•Notifications—Receive automatic notifications when a job is created, accepted, in progress or completed. Create custom notifications and emails for both dispatchers and drivers.
•Automatic job assignment—Job Dispatch finds the best driver for each task by assigning jobs to the closest available driver through the system’s autoassign feature.
All suites include an online desktop component for dispatchers and an Android app for mobile employees to receive work plans and navigation directions from either Sygic’s GPS navigation or Google Maps.
