The logistics and supply chain industry revolves around the fast and accurate transfer of materials from the point of origin to the point of consumption. To remain competitive in today’s economy, firms have incorporated mobile technology into their operations. As a result, supply chain companies are arming their field forces with mobile devices for increased business productivity and better customer satisfaction.
When equipped with the latest freight management software, mobile devices are a powerful tool for navigating the freight transportation business. Mounted touch devices in trucks help drivers communicate, access corporate information while on the move, accept jobs, and optimise route planning to cut down on fuel costs Touchscreen devices on trucks also help drivers track shipments and inform other team members of shipments’ exact location
Mobile Technology Empowers the Logistics Industry to Optimise the Fast Movement of goods Helps Organisations Continuously Improve Their Operations with Mobile Technology
With field staff using mobile devices, communication between them and the central office has become seamless and smooth which has led to the availability of real-time updates. This uninterrupted communication helps the support team systematically analyse data and make more informed decisions, thereby directly helping the business.
That said, field forces might access mobile applications that are not business-related, thereby losing focus and productivity. If this continues for long enough, the company may find itself with a very high bill for mobile data consumption. 42Gears’ products, SureLock by 42Gears and SureMDM by 42Gears, provide these companies with device lockdown and management solutions to make sure that their field forces do not use and download any unauthorised applications on company devices.
Use our products to prevent the misuse of mobile devices by taxi drivers by locking in-taxi devices down to only pre-approved applications. We allow you to password-protect device settings so that they cannot be modified by drivers intentionally or unintentionally. You can set devices to be used exactly the way you want in terms of permitted applications and content. This will help you protect your devices from malware, giving them a longer life and better performance.
Diagnostics and Reporting
We help you ensure that your devices are always fit for use by regularly monitoring the health of your fleet’s devices. You will also get alerts and notifications when drivers cross data consumption thresholds. Improve process efficiency by collecting data and performing diagnostics, and then generate reports based on that data. You can use these reports to optimise your fleet’s operations and keep your expenses in check.
Device Deployment and Management
42Gears provides easy mass-configuration options so that your devices can be set up in no time and can quickly be ready-to-use for drivers. After deployment, managing these devices is simple and easy with our centralised web console. All devices can be tracked and monitored in real-time. Wiping data, pushing software and taking control of devices can all be done remotely in bulk, without needing to attend to each device individually, saving you precious time.
Support and Maintenance
We help you maintain and support a large number of devices spread across different cities with ease. With our product, you can remotely take control of a device on the field for providing real-time technical support for drivers. We let you group your devices and schedule maintenance activities like scans and software upgrades.
