Agilis Systems, LLC, provider of location-based mobile solutions, is expanding opportunities for newspapers and distributors to enter new markets with SmartWorks. SmartWorks provides a cost-effective solution for proof of delivery through mobile software, giving distributors the tools to increase revenue by offering reliable package delivery.
Agilis Systems pioneered this technology nearly eight years ago when Smartphones were just emerging, winning a 2008 Product Innovation award. As mobile devices have evolved and improved, SmartWorks has remained on the cutting edge of technology for delivery solutions. Customers have been using the software for years for time-sensitive deliveries such as medical and pharmaceutical products, newspapers, online orders, and courier packages.
Smartworks’ intuitive application can be installed on a variety of mobile devices to provide maximum flexibility to any customer. By providing location information, package/barcode scanning, signature and photo capture, the solution allows for instant exchange of information to provide visibility between the vendor and the customer.
“As e-commerce continues its rapid growth, our newspaper and distributor clients are utilizing their complex networks for package delivery. They are experts in logistics and it makes sense for retailers and online vendors to use their distribution networks,” said Dave Barford, President/CEO, Agilis Systems.
SmartWorks can be customized to meet the needs of any distribution model. With its real-time data analytics, the software helps manage quality delivery in the chain of custody process with reporting and its web-based technologies.
Barford said, “The ‘last-mile’ is the most important part of the delivery process since that is what the customer sees. Utilizing technology allows you to ensure a high level of service, on-time delivery, damage free, and closing out the chain of custody.”
