    We have made it as easy as possible for information to flow from your existing systems into ours.  PODFather provides multiple methods of integration to both upload jobs and download completed POD data with your existing ERP, sales order, WMS or invoicing systems. 

    You can integrate PODFather into your existing infrastructure using web services or sFTP. Jobs can be uploaded either unallocated or pre-routed and assigned to a driver depending on what systems you already have in place, and PODs downloaded as soon as they are completed.

    There are three ways information can be input into PODFather:

    API upload: Integrate PODFather with your systems using web services or sFTP in XML, JSON or CSV formats.  Jobs can be uploaded unallocated or pre-routed, and PODs downloaded as soon as they’ve been completed. POD data is available to download in XML, JSON and CSV formats, along with a PDF copy of the completed delivery note, and any photos that might have been captured.

    Manual booking: Not got an existing system?  No problem. PODFather provides a back-office solution which lets your office staff enter jobs on either a one off or recurring basis. A spreadsheet import option is also available to speed up data entry.

    Customer portal: The PODFather solution includes a customer portal that can be added to your own website for your clients to enter jobs.  Saving you time and improving your service.

    About our Application Programming Interface (API)

    The PODFather API has been designed to allow the ease of integration of our solution into your existing IT systems by using JSON, XML or CSV file formats with data files transmitted via web services or sFTP.  Once has a job has been processed in PODFather, or marked as completed via our App, the API can be used to download the completed proof of delivery information in either CSV, JSON or XML file formats.  PDF reports, showing collated information, can also be downloaded along with photographs and signature captures, and archived on a local server (if required).

    What our clients say

    The new PODFather driver application is easy to use and provides constant live ETA updates and routing information on driver location and status of deliveries, as well as capturing electronic proof of delivery for every job.
