DX+ Qwik-Track Delivery & Signature Capture
This DX+ Dashboard process starts when an order is completed from counter sales, call center sales staff or from DMS’ e-Commerce Qwik-Order customers.
After the order is dispatched from the warehouse for delivery, the barcode on the invoice is scanned by the driver with a smartphone device. The DX+ Qwik-Track server updates the information immediately, enters the date & time and shows the order is out for delivery on the Qwik-Track Admin Dashboard.
When the order is delivered at the customer site, the customer signs the signature pad on the smartphone similar to a UPS delivery driver. This signature and date-time stamp will become the legal proof of delivery and the signature is immediately uploaded to the DX+ Document Center and automatically attached to the original PDF electronic copy of the invoice.
As the customer signs the smartphone signature pad, the date & time are recorded as part of the signature capture. The DX+ Qwik-Track Dashboard is then updated in real-time with the date & time delivered & captures both driver delivery metrics & customer order statistics for review by management.
