Transportation management – How an international logistics company was able to accelerate their business processes with the Scanbot SDK
The Goal: Optimizing the internal workflow by integrating a Scanner SDK
Logistics companies deal with different types of documents on the daily. Whether it is a bill of lading, invoices, or a lumper receipt, chances are high you as a company as well as your drivers and clients are dealing with a massive amount of paperwork. This makes the flow of real-time information very hard and causes the workflow to be cost-intensive and inefficient. Dive into the advantages of a mobile app, including the modern technology of a Logistics Scanner SDK.
When creating a mobile logistics app, one can easily cover up close to all the steps contained in the daily workflow. It starts with searching for a load and accepting it online to assigning a driver to it and tracking their way via GPS. Additionally, one can quickly check weight, miles, and equipment and, therefore, quickly calculate the estimated costs as well as ask further questions, find cheaper alternatives, and place different books and offers.
You can easily assign different user levels to your drivers and give them permission to make their offers and manage loads on their own, which easily saves you lots of time and effort.
As previously mentioned, you can benefit from integrating a mobile app with a Logistics Scanner SDK into your workflow in many ways. But what does a mobile workflow look like? Let’s dive into a step by step illustration of a technology-based work process!
Now, adding those features to your mobile application might sound intriguing, but getting ahead of the competition with software and technology now will make your company future-proof. Making use of a Logistics Scanner SDK will bridge the gap between the analog and digital worlds. Your developers can implement our Scanbot Scanner SDK easily within a few business days. It’s compatible with all major development platforms such as native iOS and Android development, as well as Xamarin, Flutter, or React Native.
Once the Scanner SDK has been added to your logistics app, you and your drivers can effortlessly scan all types of documents, such as delivery receipts or invoices, and send them to your headquarter within a few seconds. This way, you are going to have immediate access to the status of your loads all the time. Furthermore, inefficient storage of paperwork becomes unnecessary, saving lots of work and lowering costs.
Our high-quality scanner guarantees flawless results, even for inexperienced users. Additionally, the documents are turned into searchable PDFs via data extraction and therefore do not have to be converted manually. This is applicable even to complex documents, including tables or charts. And last but not least, the Scanner SDK is able to extract information from US driver’s licenses and barcodes or QR codes as well.
Since transparency and flexibility are relevant, Scanbot exclusively offers flat-rate pricing. This means you are going to pay an annual fee for our SDKs based on two components: The package of features you chose (0, I, II, or III), and the number of apps you want to run the SDK on.
There are no hidden costs and no “Pay per User” pricing. Therefore, the costs can be easily calculated ahead of implementing the features into the app according to the budget you are willing to spend on implementing the Scanner SDK. Additionally, Scanbot won’t charge any upfront installation fee, and you can get a free trial license to test everything with no strings attached.
