Maximise profit margins and optimise operations with Electronic Proof of Delivery (EPOD) software specific to the logistics sector. Selecting a Touchstar EPOD system for your company is an important step, that can dynamically influence the future of your business.

PODStar is highly configurable so it matches your required processes and improves efficiencies at the same time. Easy integration with your other information systems ensure real time, end-to-end traceability and optimal control over your supply chain, regardless of your specific area of expertise

Using a smart phone or mobile computer, your van or HGV driver can obtain an electronic signature from your client which confirms receipt of the goods or service delivered.

Whether you have a small or large fleet, PODStar will ensure you optimise your work scheduling, reduce fuel costs and improve customer service levels without adding extra complexity.

Traceability

You already take great care to ensure full traceability inside your four walls.
PODStar will seamlessly extend that to the point of delivery and acceptance by your customer, whilst at the same time, creating a complete digital record for your products journey. This demonstrates improved compliance and is readily auditable.

Easy Job Planning

A single screen view pulls together core data on planned jobs, run list summaries and run details. Changes to runs and run specifics can be made using easy ‘drag and drop’ methodology. All screens display pallet, weight and revenue information which allows for optimised run creation based on factors such as revenue potential and weight constraints.

Dispute Resolution

PODStar reduces disputes because signing on screen means transactions are inherently easier to trace and prove.

PODStar’s real time data which includes photos, date, time and geo-location data eradicates this costly and resource-consuming issue. No more credit notes!

Delivery windows

Up front optimization of client delivery windows meaning no unnecessary delays as drivers routing is all pre-planned.

Cash collection

Consolidation made easier, less mistakes, time saved as the PODstar system can update instantly what’s owed and what’s been paid by each client

Discrepancies

PODstar’s easy to use drop down menu exceptions system ensures less credit notes, time saved and happier customers as delivery discrepancies will be reported real time and acted upon immediately by the back office.

Drop & Go disclaimer

Prove you left your delivery in a safe place, with drop & go. If there is no-one there to receive it; the POD allows photo, date, time and geo-location as proof that your delivery was made successfully.

Instant invoicing

No more waiting for drivers to return to base with job records. With PODStar, you could be generating invoices as soon as the job is complete; potentially shortening the payment cycle by many days.

Customer portal

Give your customers their OWN unique PODStar Portal. This enables your customers to view all their orders, keep up to date with their live delivery status, have a dedicated POD archive and even PLACE new orders THEMSELVES.

No need for them to pick up the phone to you.

Temperature

Prove cold chain temperature compliance by capturing the temperature of goods in transit and on delivery – with the added option of photo evidence. This automatically attaches to your “Real time POD”. Save time, paper and effort with no need to provide separate paper receipts.

Extra deliveries through efficiencies

PODStar gives you the tools and data to give you the full view of your dispatch and delivery operation.

This can enable more deliveries per run and ensure all your runs are effectively optimised to return the best ROI.

Digital POD archive

A comprehensive archive of all your POD’s, in one, easily accessible place. This means no more searching and rummaging through stacks of paper when looking for a particular POD.
Further, it resolves any issues with lost or missing paper POD’s. Always there, always accessible, always findable; potentially saving you hours of lost and unproductive time.

Fraud protection

Fraud happens. People take advantage of weak systems to their own advantage.
PODStar reduces fraud because, signing on screen means transactions are inherently easier to trace, and potential fraudsters know this. The robustness of PODStar’s real time data with photo(s), date, time and geo-location data further enhances your defences against this costly and resource consuming issue.
