Last mile delivery tracking case study: Home Leisure Direct

Home Leisure Direct, the UK’s largest specialist games room retailer, has introduced PODFather’s driver tracking and electronic proof of delivery software to streamline processes across its white glove delivery service.  Renowned for delivering and installing an extensive range of high-end home games room products – from pool tables to jukeboxes and football tables to arcade machines – Home Leisure Direct needed a planning partner capable of eradicating paper tickets from its rapidly growing business.  Having reviewed a selection of available software solutions Home Leisure Direct were impressed by PODFather’s ability to offer paperless delivery planning and real time vehicle tracking.  With PODFather rolling out, and business expansion plans in the pipeline, Home Leisure Direct is benefitting from customer ETA notifications, live tracking, and electronic proof of delivery.
