Lavu Inc. has announced a new delivery and routing extension for their iPad POS. This “smart” delivery dispatch provides the best route for each delivery, and recommends the optimal sequence to maximize driver efficiency. Coupled with the Lavu Customer Database, this centralized solution aims to improve productivity for businesses that deliver.
The iPad terminal displays delivery orders and allows staff to assign drivers to those orders. Drivers are provided with a map and directions to each delivery location via text message or printed receipt. The system approximates delivery times and selects the best path for the driver to take.
Multiple Order Routing groups two or more orders together and Lavu maps out the most efficient route with turn by turn directions. Routes are calculated according to order times, destination, and driver availability. This maximizes efficiency while providing a timetable to ensure driver accountability.
The delivery and routing extension is available for all Lavu iPad POS accounts, and costs $30 that is added to the monthly hosting fee. Lavu offers a free trial for clients to use the extension before purchase, so they’ll be able to really understand how this solution would benefit their business.
