Delivery notes still play an important role of confirming that a customer has received the goods, even in this age of signing for goods by using a handheld device.
Organisations that supply goods to their customers on monthly credit terms and invoice after the delivery, will know the benefit of having a signed proof of delivery note to help avoid payment problems later.
And that applies whether the goods are meat pies, packets of crisps or lorry loads of road stone.
And when there are lots of them, scanning the PODs and storing the signed proof of delivery note electronically, will make all the difference to the efficiency of the system.
Using the Quantor Scanning document scanning service, customers can have their PODs scanned every day, with the images available online to be viewed within 24 hours of receipt.
