BOLT System recently announced the availability of BOLT Tandem, a new Android application for capturing out-of-cab activities. The new application was developed to automate a number of business functions, including:
- Proof of Delivery capture
- Documentation for detention
- Clean delivery exceptions, including providing a picture of damage and reporting exceptions to customer support in real time
It is designed to be used on existing smart phones running Android 4.03 or later versions of the software. The monthly fee for the Tandem application and integration to the BOLT Fleet Management software will be under $10 per month. If a fleet does not have smart phones, BOLT can also furnish the entire package, including the smart phone plus locked-down data plan with BOLT Tandem installed.
According to BOLT, the new solution can bring a number of benefits to fleets, including reduced time at stops, the ability to invoice faster thanks to automated proof of delivery and the ability to better control costs.
BOLT has a number of affiliates and partners, including: ALK Technologies, Comdata Corp., EFS Transportation Services, FleetOne, Fuelman, Omnitracs, PeopleNet, Rand McNally, T-Chek Systems, TMW Systems, XRS Corp. and others.
