Travis Perkins has adopted an electronic Proof of Delivery solution, which is set to be rolled out on over 2,150 devices across its delivery feet.

The builders’ merchant operates 20 businesses from nearly 2000 sites across the UK and owns 19 separate brands within its portfolio.

The rollout of the technology, supplied by Microlise, is part of an ongoing strategy to deliver full reporting functionality to track where and when promises are not being met, in order to deliver an improved experience to Travis Perkins’ customers.

The solution is paperless and designed to provide complete visibility of deliveries. All activity is tracked via the solution, through features such as barcode scanning, sign-on glass and image capture.

Mark Blackburn, programme manager at Travis Perkins, said: “Following deployment, the new Microlise proof of delivery technology has been positively received by our delivery staff and drivers.

“As well as providing consistent paperless tracking of deliveries, it also works with our route planning tool to optimise fuel consumption and reduce environmental impact.

“The objective is always to improve the experience for our customers and this deployment is a first step in our larger business strategy of continued development.”

The new system is being utilised by several of Travis Perkins’ businesses and brands, including Keyline, CCF, Benchmark and CPS.
