The FAS Mobile Delivery Management System (FAS Mobile) allows
users to download outstanding deliveries into an Android Smart-phone
and then to process those deliveries using the Android phone.
FAS Mobile users can display the entire list of deliveries, map all
deliveries with real-time GPS capability, map individual deliveries,
automatically contact order recipients, and mark orders delivered as
the deliveries are completed. FAS Mobile then updates the delivery
information on the order stored on the FAS server back at the shop.
FAS Mobile consists of two modules-the Android application which can
be downloaded into your phone from the Android Market and the FAS server
software which must be downloaded and configured on your FAS server by
FAS's support staff. In addition to the Android phone you must also
have wireless access to your FAS network through the FAS router or
through an access point attached to your FAS network. In order to
maximize the effectiveness of the mapping features of FAS Mobile,
shops should use FAS's address look-up and verification feature to
make certain that valid, accurate, standardized addresses are passed
along from FAS's invoice entry module to the FAS Mobile mapping module.
Select the FAS Mobile application from the Android Home screen.
Press "Get deliveries" to download the outstanding deliveries from
the FAS server to the phone, and then press "Invoices" to process the deliveries.
The list of outstanding deliveries will be listed.
Press "Map Deliveries" to generate a map containing all deliveries.
Or select an individual delivery to display the details for that
particular order. By pressing the appropriate buttons you can
mark the order delivered, call the recipient, map the individual delivery, or provide real-time navigation instructions.
Press "Mark Delivered" to complete the delivery.
After you enter the name of the person who accepted the
delivery, FAS Mobile will update the delivery information on
the order stored on the FAS server back at your shop.
