Jump Technologies Introduces Route Optimization Into JumpTrack Proof-of-Delivery Solution

Cloud-Based Solution Optimizes Delivery Sequencing to Reduce Miles Driven and Fuel Costs, While Improving On-Time Delivery for Independent Office Supply Dealers

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - Jump Technologies®, a leader in combining smart technology with the convenience of cloud computing for accurate, efficient supply-chain management solutions, today announced the only route optimization solution built specifically for independent office supply dealers. Route optimization is now available for the JumpTrack™ cloud-based, proof-of-delivery solution (POD), which transforms an unordered list of stops into an optimized delivery sequence, ultimately reducing operational costs of the fleet.

According to the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), it costs $3.00 per mile to operate a delivery vehicle. Jump Technologies CEO and Chief Technologist John Freund said, "Helping our customers conserve miles driven through economical routing and scheduling has a big pay-off for fleets of all sizes. Saving just 10 miles per day adds up to $600 per month per truck. Plus, running the most efficient routes possible improves customer service by getting deliveries to customers faster and on-time."

JumpTrack Optimization allows users to program schedule parameters for each driver, such as lunch and restricted delivery times for particular customers. Another feature automatically sends an email notification to a customer when their delivery is completed and includes a link to the website to view delivery details. Route optimization is an add-on feature to JumpTrack and costs $55 per month for each route that is optimized.

JumpTrack is saving customers thousands of dollars in paper and labor costs associated with paper-based delivery systems, and expedites invoice payment by putting proof-of-delivery information at customers' fingertips. It significantly reduces delivery errors, improves customer service, and provides greater control over and insight into their delivery and logistics operations. Its easy-to-use interface and quick installation on wireless devices that drivers commonly carry eliminate training and hardware costs to speed return on investment. The cloud-based application virtually eliminates IT costs and expensive ruggedized hardware.

JumpTrack Optimization is currently available on Android and will be available for iPhone and iPad by May 1, 2014.
