Direct Store Delivery
Advanced mobile technology brings accuracy and efficiencies in delivery
In the battle against rising delivery costs, routes and deliveries must run with military precision. Direct store delivery (DSD) calls for automation where load planning, pre-sold and peddle (driver sold) routes and driver settlement processes are synced with warehousing and accounting functions. Softeon DSD supports pre-sales and peddle sales operations.
Softeon DSD enables drivers to capture orders and customer signatures as well as perform invoicing, all on site, for faster payment and accurate accounting. The solution is ideal for food and beverage distributors, parts suppliers and e-commerce operators (web stores) that deliver products to stores, distribution centers or directly to consumers.
