•Eliminating paperwork costs for printing invoices and DOT checklists for the drivers
•Increasing inventory accuracy by confirming exactly what was delivered and when
•Reducing labor costs spent reconciling invoices and adjusting inventory
•Increasing cash flow with cleaner, more precise invoices
•Compatible with not only ruggedized Android devices but also consumer grade hardware as well as many legacy scanners operating on Windows mobile software
NCR’s Global Enterprise, Merchandising and Supply Chain group focuses on creating a single, centralized data integration and operational platform that helps both retailers and distributors lower costs and increase revenues.
Jake’s consistently delivers a selection of more than 10,000 items including custom-cut center-of-the-plate choices, fresh produce, everyday staples, and many specialty products.
