Digital Proof Of Delivery: benefits and considerations

With digital transformation, the buyer’s journey is increasingly digital. Buyers can order online or ask to receive their bills digitally. For the sake of consistency, it is important that proof of delivery be digital as well.

But what does digital proof of delivery entail? Here is a glimpse of the benefits and considerations that must be made if you want to make the leap to digital POD.

Benefits of digital POD

  • Savings in time and money: Your employees will no longer have to spend time scanning all those paper PODs or inputting information manually into your systems. The digital solution will help you save paper and accelerate your processes. That frees up your employees to focus on tasks with a higher added value.

Did you know that around 19% of American consumers would like to see an improvement in delivery-related communications (Temando)? Digital POD may be the ideal tool because of all the things it allows you to do: e.g. with POD on a tablet, the delivery person can add comments, take photos if the product is damaged, change amounts, and send information directly to the company. More important, the customer can receive a copy directly by email.

Digital POD: three considerations

    • Investment: Implementing a solution to produce digital POD requires little investment of time and money. There is a technological choice to be made between several solutions and various devices. This requires some strategic thinking, as well as some time for set-up.
    • Managing change: You also need to manage the changes in your company’s procedures, whether they apply to employees in the field or in the office. Workers need to be supported and informed so that the transition goes as smoothly as possible. If they fully embrace the new process, it will benefit the company in terms of efficiency.
