Have you ever wondered how to bring the same level of tracking and tracing of packages that the major carriers provide inside your organization? Mail and package delivery software is available to businesses of all sizes. Whether you are receiving hundreds of packages per day or only a few precious items, the need to track the receipt and delivery may be a important part of your business operation.
Tracking packages internally starts with the receiving process. The carriers drop off packages and collect signatures for their system. Although this is the end of the process for the carriers it is actually the beginning of the process for your receivers. First the package tracking number must be recorded. Typically, this can be accomplished through the use of a bar code scan. If a tracking number is not present or is unreadable then the receiver must generate unique identifying number to track the package through to delivery. Next, any additional information required must be recorded against that package such as recipient’s name, location, who the sender is, and possiblly the type of or condition of the package. Once the package detail is recorded, the package will either be stored or routed for delivery. This is where the application is specific to each organization and its business processes and workflows. Depending on how the package is to be handled will determine the flow of steps in the process. Ultimately, the package must get in the hands of the end recipient. Whether the package is delivered directly to that person or delivered to a location, the mail clerk must account for delivery either through a signature or a short note that the package was delivered or dropped off. Although this may sound like a difficult process for most businesses; through the use of technology it can be quite seamless.
