CARLSON STANLEY HAS SELECTED CIS GROUP AS ITS DIRECT STORE DELIVERY MOBILE SOLUTION PROVIDER
Carlson Stanley Ltd., based in St-John’s, Newfoundland, has selected CIS Group as its direct-store-delivery mobile solution provider. CIS Group will automate the activities of its delivery personnel with the Route Companion® solution and it will help the company go from fully manual to fully automated field operations. As a result of the transition, Carlson Stanley will gain better visibility and control over its DSD operations and will reach a higher degree of efficiency and greater margin.
Route Companion® will run on rugged Motorola MC75A mobile devices with an embedded scanner, and will communicate in a bidirectional environment with the Office Companion® application installed in the office, using cradles, at the beginning and at the end of the day. Office Companion will interface seamlessly with Carlson Stanley’s accounting system, Simply Accounting, using a connector from CIS Group. Using Route Companion®, the drivers will be able to plan their visits, process returns, manage inventory in the truck, print definitive invoices at point of sale, and collect payments. At the end of the day, they will be able to easily complete their workday with the route settlement and end-of-day reporting functionalities of Route Companion®. Route Companion® will help Carlson Stanley to considerably cut their costs by reducing clerical work, errors and returns, and will help to increase revenue by allowing the drivers to visit more clients during the day and increase the sales per route.

We have received a very positive feedback from our drivers and from our distributors. The software has enabled them to be much more efficient, so much so, that they save at least an hour a day.

In our industry, the Baking industry, one major issue was managing prices. Now, Instead of spending time doing manual reports or investigating, the information that they require is at the tip of their fingers so that they can spend more time selling or visiting clients to increase sales.
