Delivery Mobile Apps

Empower your delivery force. Bring out the heroes in them. Develop an app which automates the process of paperwork, and connects the fellow riders and the headquarter. Also, the same concept can be utilized for on-the-field professionals. Hence, this also means better collaboration for sales and data collection professionals.

For companies with multiple product/service lines, mobile apps are a blessing. In fact, Apps not only manage warranties for the tickets raised by consumers but, also provide insights, for example, defect rate per product-line/model.

Furthermore, integration of social and IM apps as a customer service channel supplements the process of interaction.

Supply Chain Inspection App

Maintain, log, verify and report from any mobile device anywhere. Be it a warehouse, office space, production line etc, submit your inspection on the go.
