PHOENIX, June 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac and AB&R® (American Barcode & RFID) announced a strategic partnership to help drivers deliver packages more efficiently. The two companies are joining forces to address issues in mobility and route management, and package tracking.
“If you make an online purchase from an e-commerce site that ships from the Western US, then most likely OnTrac is the parcel logistics company behind the delivered package,” stated Mike Stryczek, CEO of AB&R®. “We are excited to be working with the OnTrac team on the next generation route management solution for enhanced driver efficiency, increased flexibility and superior package tracking.”
AB&R® is working together with OnTrac to move their devices over to AndroidTM devices. The AndroidTM operating system is much more touch-friendly. This means less reading errors and faster response times in the delivery management application, an important factor when speed and efficiency are the main components for generating and increasing revenue.
OnTrac and AB&R® are also developing an easy to use, customizable delivery application for OnTrac Service Providers. The upgraded application will allow an OnTrac Service Provider to easily adjust their route by dragging and dropping addresses, integrating google maps for turn by turn navigation, and sync functionality that will send data back to OnTrac’s delivery management system for administrators to take action in real-time.
“OnTrac is looking forward to working with AB&R® as the delivery application receives an important upgrade,” says OnTrac Vice President of Information Technology Timothy Elder. “On Time Delivery For Less is the cornerstone of all OnTrac services, and these changes will ensure that performance continues to the OnTrac standard.”
With AB&R®’s support, OnTrac will have a mobile package tracking system that allows Service Providers to deliver more packages in less time. This partnership is to benefit everyone from OnTrac employees throughout the supply chain all the way down to OnTrac customers.
