Features

Android or Apple

The PODFather driver app is compatible with almost all modern Android and Apple smartphones and tablets. You can deploy on both consumer grade devices from manufacturers like Samsung and Apple or enterprise ones from manufacturers like Honeywell and Zebra. The app for the mobile user is the same regardless of device used.

Route & delivery instructions

Routes are displayed to the driver as planned in the office and all job instructions are displayed on the mobile app.

Easy to use, inbuilt navigation

Drivers navigation is included to guide them to their next delivery point. Apple and Google Maps are supported as standard, and CoPilot for Trucks is available if an HGV compatible sat nav system is required.

Collect proof of delivery via our app

Jobs can be completed confirming items delivered (or not if there are discrepancies), scan barcodes, capture photos, customer name and signature. More complex forms can be added to the job completion process if required. All jobs automatically capture the date, time and GPS location of completion.

Case Study: Braehead Foods

Braehead Foods, one of Scotland’s largest independent food wholesalers, is working with PODFather to optimise routes and streamline proof of delivery processes across its UK wide operation.  With a fleet of 20 vehicles, and over 1,300 hotel and restaurant customers to serve, Braehead Foods needed a solution that could help modernise its manual transport planning process.  PODFather is now used daily to plan driver routes, track vehicle movements, and capture electronic proof of delivery in real time.  As a result, the Braehead Foods team is seeing huge benefit – in the form of significant reductions in mileage, driving time and fuel – which equate to a financial saving of over £80,000 a year.

The PODFather driver app is so intuitive that even our most non-technical drivers have gotten to grips with it really quickly.

What our clients say

The PODFather smartphone driver app is very easy to use which means it’s quick to roll it out to both our own, & any sub subcontractor drivers that we need to bring in.
