JumpTech Announces Availability of JumpPOD Proof-of-Delivery App for Android and Apple iOS Devices

Mobile App Leverages Ubiquitous Smartphones to Make It Easy, Fast, and Affordable for Small and Mid-Sized Dealers and Distributors to Capture Customer Signatures

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Jump Technologies, Inc. (JumpTech™) (http://www.jumpcart.com), a developer of cloud-based replenishment and inventory management software and mobile apps for supplies and parts distributors and dealers, today announced the availability of its JumpPOD™ smartphone app for Android™ and Apple® iOS smartphones and tablet devices.

JumpPOD is a sophisticated, yet elegantly simple proof-of-delivery system that leverages the power and nearly ubiquitous availability of Android and Apple iOS smartphones and tablets, combined with the convenience and efficiencies of cloud-based services. Once the app has been downloaded and installed on the delivery driver's smartphone or tablet, customers simply sign the screen using their fingertip. Signatures and detailed delivery information are then automatically uploaded to JumpTech's cloud-based servers where the data can be securely accessed from any browser and subsequently downloaded into each customer's backend systems. JumpPOD even helps accelerate payments and cash flow by making proof-of-delivery verification immediately available to the customer's accounting department.

"All of us at JumpTech are committed to the mission of making the ordering and management of supplies, parts, and other products easier, faster, and cheaper," said John Freund, CEO of JumpTech. "Many dealers and distributors of parts and supplies have hundreds of trucks and drivers outfitted with bulky and expensive proof-of-delivery terminals for collecting signatures, so we saw a clear opportunity to leverage smartphones to drive significant cost savings for our customers. JumpPOD is fully integrated with our entire ordering and inventory management suite, and is yet another example of the simplicity, efficiency and savings JumpTech is delivering to our dealer and distributor customers."

Pricing, Specs and Availability:
The JumpPOD app is now available free of charge on the Android Market for all Android devices running Android 2.1 or higher, as well as on the Apple App Store for all iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices running iOS 4.0 or later. A full list of JumpPOD features and specifications can be downloaded here. The JumpPOD proof-of-delivery service is available at a cost of $75 per truck per month.
