CCF, the insulation and dry-lining specialist arm of builders merchant Travis Perkins, has taken on the Jump software platform from Jade.
Jump has replaced the previous paper based delivery process which meant handwritten proof of delivery notes could not be reconciled with orders until they were returned to the branch office.
Now drivers collect a MC75 and a PB51 and log on to the Jump solution and select the delivery vehicle they will be using. Jump then prompts the driver to carry out the necessary vehicle checks and once these are completed the driver has access to the planned delivery route which is presented in order of drops. The driver selects the first job and then views the manifest to see what deliveries are to be made and if there are any special delivery instructions.
As Jump integrates with ALK’s CoPilot navigation software, the driver is directed to each delivery drop. Jump enables the driver to confirm arrival and when the unloading process has been completed. Using the MC75, and PB51 the driver can print manifests to allow customers to check deliveries, electronically record any discrepancies or to take any images of the goods that may be necessary to provide evidence of any damage or proof of where goods have been unloaded.
“Jump provides us with accurate real-time data of when our drivers arrive at drops and when they leave. This visibility means that if a customer wants pre-delivery information we can now access this accurate real-time information through Jump’s integration with our back office systems,” says Robin Proctor, supply chain director for the Travis Perkins Group.
“Crucially, for us, once the unloading process has been completed the driver obtains an electronic signature which is then transmitted to CCF’s back office systems. Confirmation of delivery details can then be made immediately available to our customers.”
Travis Perkins is looking to roll out the CCF solution across its other companies.
