Scandit has used its mobile computer vision and barcode scanning technology to create a Contactless Proof of Delivery web app that is quick for retailers and delivery companies to implement and has made it available free for six months until September 30th. Customers can use their own smartphone to scan a QR code which opens the web app, then scan the barcode on the package and sign on their device to confirm a delivery or pickup. This process is available without downloading anything or logging into an account.
"Due to the Corona pandemic, we needed a way to ensure the safety of our drivers and consignees who were not comfortable with signing for shipments on our handheld devices. We needed a fast and simple solution for customers to sign for shipments on their own mobile devices,” said Dastan Namousi, Demand & eService Manager atDB Schenker, Nordics. “Scandit already provides barcode scanning software for one of our terminal sorting applications and we realized that the same solution could be used for this new signing application.”
“When we heard from customers about this problem, we quickly created the web app,” said Samuel Mueller, CEO of Scandit. “In an effort to make it widely available as soon as possible, we’re offering it free for six months to any company that can benefit from it.”
